    Sorry, I meant to post this comment to here, not the CFFB site.

    Great job on the PA Radio #4, folks. I’ve been toying with the occasional agility ladder drill in lieu of sprints, too. Great minds…

    Cool dude…we use tons of agility ladder drills at our box as part of our dynamic warm up on our weightlifting days. The footwork easily transfers to the snatch and clean/jerk. Plus it’s a good stimulation for the CNS.

    @Kellygage73: I think you mean BioGIF – if you go to the top there is a list of things we talk about and it’s linked; essentially a probiotic supplement.
    Check it out. Good stuff!
