Yep that is crossfit's endurance training site. I mostly stick to the main Crossfit website and do their workout of the day. But this is good stuff too.

Note: This routine is subject to modifications.

I didn't lift this last week because I was sick and figuring out a new routine. I'm going to keep it simple. There was WAY too much analysis going on in my head.

Session 1:
Vertical Push
Deadlift "Death Set"
Lat work

72 hours rest

Session 2:
Vertical Push
Deadlift "Death Set"
Lat work

What about adding DL or squatting into your cardio routine. Check out some of my crossfit workouts. It is cardio lifting. Just a suggestion. Log looking good.
That reminds me. On Sherdog MMA forums conditioning section they have a DL your own bodyweight for reps in 5 minutes challenge. I can't enter the challenge because I'm not a regular poster, but that would be good cardio.

Yep I've done this and it gets tiring. You start off throwing the weight because it's light and you think you can keep doing it forever but it get heavy when you start to fatigue after a couple of minutes. I think the reasoning behind it is for MMA your going to be throwing someone to the ground that is about your size and they go for 5 minutes rounds which is long time so you need to be well conditioned. one of my favorite crossfit workouts is "fight gone bad" it was designed for MMA BJ Penn. I think i've got it in my training log.

I'd like to see "fight gone bad." I'll do a search on crossfit.com discussion board, I'm registered.

My legs are already sore from today. That's not supposed to happen until tomorrow. :(

Thursday May 28th

DB Flat Bench (hammer grip)
60's for 7 reps
I could have used more weight.

Full Squat
1x10x200lbs
1x7x200lbs

Deadlift (no belt)
2x10x200lbs

Note: I didn't go to bed until close to 4 am last night. My goal is to move my own BW around for as many reps as possible. I'll eventually add BW exercises to my routine over time.
