Josh Webb asks:
Hi Guys, 3-4 times a year I’m have to travel for work and for play. A lot of these trips take me to middle of no where – places like rural Uganda, middle of no where in Eastern Europe and fly in fly out communities in Canada. The trips usually last 2 weeks and very rarely do I have access to anything that resembles a gym. I’m curious to see what you might suggest to use as weekly template based on body weight for SWOD and DWOD to minimize any losses for a CFF follower of any level. As for me – if required – I’m 31, a lean 220, 6’2. Medical Professional that is follows CFF because he likes to be a big strong, powerful, athlete, no particular sport commitments, but enjoys the dynamics of CFF and the ability to lift things up and put them down, while still being able to run down someone 10 years my junior on the field.
A guy from my old unit just got out and moved to the same town that I’ve been living in for the last 2 years. He’s a double, above-the-knee amputee, from an IED in Afghanistan. I spoke with him today and he would like to resume training again. His goals are to put back on some muscle mass, get as strong as possible, to keep what he has from breaking down on him (ex. He only has part of one femur and sitting unbalanced all day causes him quite a bit of back pain), and to add structure and challenge into his daily life to help keep him motivated. I, personally, have been following CFFB for a few years now, and I understand that the primary focus of the program is on improving athletic performance. But I thought I’d ask you guys what your advice would be on training someone in this situation. For example, is there a specific way in which you would modify the Power Athlete Template to work around his injuries, or would you recommend pursuing another program? Whether or not you guys get a chance to answer my question, I just want to say thank you for all you do. Y’all are helping a lot of people with the services you freely provide.
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.
