The Boz & Todd Experience — Episode 2, Part 5 by Chris Spealler - CrossFit Journal

In Coaching, Videos, Workouts

January 28, 2009

Video Article

This is Part 5 of the second episode of the Boz and Todd Experience. Boz and Todd, with special guest Chris Spealler, conducted four training sessions at Front Range CrossFit. Except for scheduling the athletes, these sessions were unplanned. They met with the athletes for the first time that night, interviewed them about their strengths and weaknesses, and took them through a training session and workout. Real world training with several of Front Range CrossFit’s regular clients.

In this video (published out of order because of the main site WOD is Elizabeth tonight), Chris Spealler coaches Josh through the warmup for the workout Elizabeth (part 5 1/2 is the workout). Josh is a good athlete, but hasn’t been CrossFitting for a long time, and has never done Elizabeth before.

Chris takes him through the Burgener Warmup using the clean instead of the snatch. Josh then adds weight gradually until he is at the prescribed weight of 135lbs. They also cover the standards for ring dips, as well as a strategy for kipping the dip.

Adrian Bozman, Todd Widman and Chris Spealler are three of CrossFit’s top trainers. They spend a significant portion of their time traveling around the country working the CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certification seminars.

Some smart-ass asked once: "If there are no stupid questions, what kind of questions do stupid people ask?" ;)

Great video BTW. Totally needed that as I don't have access to a crossfit gym (yet) and I totally needed the refresher after the cert.

It's cool to see Speal as a trainer instead of some 135 lb monster tearin' up the WODs. Keep it up!
