Apparently this entire book is all cross fit. So not what I was hoping for. But I guess it's a good reference if cross fit is yr thing. (Side note: maybe using the Badwater ultra to hype the idea of a paleo diet isn't the greatest idea in light of Scott Jurek wining twice. Vegans ftw.) ...more

The skills part makes sense, but the programming section was quite light and didn't really reference the skills bit. ...more

Worth the read

I liked how it talked about the mechanics of the each discipline in the triathlon, but I wish the training programs at the end were triathlon specific.

Herminio G Salazar

Reading through this volume of knowledge for anyone to follow and literally begin to change their ways from meager to functioning athletically not just in a single sport arena but three to four.

Great read.

Love it

I love the PSE program. Although not as revolutionary as they think they are, they've put together an excellent program and I recommend this book.

Great book for CrossFit athlete that wants to improve endurance or vice versa.

In training, I have always liked going long for the mental aspect of it. Like Running more than 10k, rowing half marathons, and swimming more than 1k. I also love CrossFit. I have had this book on my to read list for a while, and after I signed up for CrossFit Endurance Trainer Seminar I gave it a shot. The course and this book, hook onto eachother very nicely. Even though this book is not new, most of its principles

Very well written. The best part about this book I thought was the pictures of the "right" and "wrong" way. I found the basic premise pretty exciting, good performance with more intensive varied workouts taking less time; however while I agree that this method can get most people to a decent time for their chosen event I don't think it will take them to the next level. That being said it was worth checking out of the library (GO KITSAP REGIONAL LIBRARY) but don't think I would have been happy sp ...more

“Most of us assume that running is a natural instinct and so requires no training. As a result, athletes rarely consider that improper technique is to blame for their injuries.” 0 likes
“A fit athlete, as Glassman put it, is competent in all general physical skills, meaning that he or she not only has stamina, but is also strong, fast, agile, coordinated, and flexible. With this base, you can add in sport-specific training for anything from running a marathon to fighting in the cage.” 0 likes
