Lochte's training program looks a LOT like CrossFit to me….

Why early specialization in sports (kids playing hockey all winter, and again all summer, instead of playing other things) is a very bad idea.

Are ice baths a true aid for recovery, or a placebo?

Finally, a buyout attempt for 20% of CrossFit – the brand – is underway. It won't succeed, primarily due to CrossFit's licensure agreement with its Affiliate gyms (we're not franchisees.) Nothing to worry about, but I'd prefer that you hear it from me first before rumours start to fly. Net effect it will have on your training, or your Catalyst experience, or the CrossFit Games: zero.
