Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who is the program designed for?
A: This program is for CrossFit athletes, whether their goal is general fitness (or) to compete in CrossFit Competitions.
Q: When should this program be completed?
A: This program is designed be completed after your normal training, whether it be a CrossFit class or Competitor’s programming. If you plan on doing it before you normal training, due to scheduling or time constraints, make sure to get a general, full body warm-up in before jumping into the workouts. The workouts assume you are already warm.
Q: Is this program meant to be a replacement or supplemental / add-on?
A: It could be either. However, you should be completing at least two CrossFit style workouts per week in additional to the Bulletproof Body. This program is meant to be a compliment to CrossFit – to counter its weaknesses – therefore it can’t work as a compliment unless you do CrossFit. Yet, within these parameters, there are freedoms.
For example, if you normally do CrossFit style workouts five days per week, you could back it down to three, completing two days of this program as a replacement to your CrossFit workouts and then complete the third day during a recovery day. Or, you could keep doing four to five days per week of CrossFit and do the Bulletproof Body workouts after class. You will just want to monitor intensity in your Functional Fitness workouts, because total volume (work) will be higher.
Q: What improvements can I expect to see with this program?
A: This program is meant to counter some of the lagging points for CrossFit, including muscle groups, movement patterns, positions and ranges of motion. The goal is to improve muscular strength and elasticity, tendon + joint resiliency and overall mobility. There will be countless micro-adaptations throughout various systems in the body, which will be collectively represented in three categories of improvement: regrow, restore and refresh.
Q: Will this program make me better at Functional Fitness?
A: Yes. But, it is important to remember the difference between building an engine (adaptation) and going fast (optimization). It is likely that during and immediately after this program your CrossFit capacity may or may not be better. Nevertheless, the work has been put in – like money in the bank. The purpose of Bulletproof Body is to build an engine.
It may take time for you to get up to speed – but when you do – you won’t breakdown.
