Carl Case, What’s Up?!

Chad Dame asks:
I am the strength coach for our school, its main focus is football. I have been using the crossfit football programming with good results… I have tried to get other sports to do this as well for the power athlete benefits. One sport I’m wondering about is swimming. What’s your opinion on using the CFFB program for swimming?

    Love the PA radio. Two things, can Welbourn “interview”/ shoot the shit, with more people?? Welbourn and Meadows, Welbourn and Starett, Welbourn and more please. Also, do you guys think you’ll ever cover the collegiate template in more detail? The amateur stuff was beaten to death, in a good way, and I attended a cert, but I would love to hear more about that template as a number of my athletes have progressed beyond amateur. However, talk about whatever you guys want, love the knowledge bombs, keep ’em coming.

    I am playing catch up on episodes. I could listen to John talk about watching the grass grow. Keep the episodes coming. I’m going to look up material from Anthony Joseph now too. You guys are a great resource.
