140602 – YG and Running Template


If you’re coming to the Young Gun summer camp and are wondering what you’ll be doing, it will basically be almost identical to the Outlaw Program.  I plan to change just a few things in it to tailor it for you young guys, but just know you’ll be throwing around heavy things at the gym every session.  Let’s do work.

Also, with the coming of summer, I will posting a “Ramp-Up” Homework running template for those preparing for any “Grand” running adventures this fall.  The first 6 weeks will be all about building a mileage base and climbing strength.  These runs should preferably be done with at least an hour of rest after Outlaw… recover and hydrate.  Top priority is the weekly “long run”, which ideally should be run on trail with hills.  Speaking of hills, we’ll have a weekly hill repeat session… wear a weight vest or heavy pack.  Another thing to think about is getting heat-acclimated, if you’re an Outlaw, Tuesday afternoon WODs at the box when it’s a thousand degrees are recommended.  Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

140530 – Class of 2014

Every year I get the chance to work with some outstanding young people… some of them I’ll remember forever.  Any teacher will tell you that it’s a “thankless-job” most of the time.  Unlike most other professions, you may wait years to see the result of your efforts, most times never.  Can’t imagine spending my time doing anything else more important though.  Now as Alice Cooper says…



1) E2MOM for 3 sets.  3-Position Snatch (mid-hang, @knee, 1″ from deck).  Med-Heavy ~75%.

2) E2MOM for 3 sets. 3-Position Clean (mid-hang, @knee, 1″ from deck) + 1x Push-Jerk. 75%.

Young Guns 2.0


What – An intense strength and conditioning program to build sport specific skills and elite fitness using CrossFit methodology.

What we’ll do – Camp activities will include lifting, carrying, running, throwing, climbing, and jumping. Safety and proper technique of the Olympic and power lifts will be taught, while increasing your strength, power, agility, speed, and stamina using constantly varied high-intensity functional athletic movements. Athlete to coach ratio will be small so you will have lots of personal one-on-one coaching by CrossFit certified personnel. Nutrition and hydration will also be stressed to maximize your potential.

What we won’t do – The focus of this camp is to develop strength, stamina, and explosive power that will carryover into other athletic situations. Although every training session will have a short conditioning phase, we will NOT run ourselves to death and lose all our hard-earned gains.

Who – Anyone… guys AND girls ages 14-19yrs old wanting to improve their fitness to prepare for fall sports.

Time – 2pm – 3:15pm… before it gets hotter than the surface of the sun.

Days – Mon, Wed, and Fri… with a weekly Saturday “homework” assignment.

Dates – June 2rd – July 25th a total of 20 sessions over 7 weeks. Note – Due to scheduling conflicts, the dates of 6/9, 11, 18, & 20 will be cancelled.

Where – CrossFit Veritas, 105 E. Industrial Blvd. Graham, TX

Price – $100
