I trained ‘westside’ for several year and had great success w/ my strength gains but put on a good bit of extra body fat. Since switching to CFFB my strength gains have remained good (slowed but good) and I’m burning a ton of body fat. I was just wondering if it would be possible/beneficial to combine some ‘westside’ methodology w/ the CFFB program” –AJ
Dave S asks:
As always great work on the CFFB site and the Pod Casts. 2 in one week last week! Can you explain the physiology of why attempting to reach your chin over the bar during chin ups or pull-ups can negatively impact your on field performance? And your other lifts?
I know you mentioned lots of people come into your gyms and have this problem.
Thanks, keep up the good work
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
