Seems like today is CrossFit athletes presentation day.
Cherie explains how she’s stronger at 37 than she was at 27 and how she and Matt train as a couple; and Matt, being a fire fighter, gives a tour of his fire station and discusses how he encouraged Cherie to go individual and his training program throughout the last year.
For 6 month out of the last year, Matt did strength training 3 days a week in a classic 3 on 1 off fashion. One max effort day, followed by accessory work. The other two days were dynamic effort days where he was working on speed. After the strength sessions on those 3 days he would add a CrossFit workout.
This year he changed things an started doing a working out in a more consistend 3 on 1 off, 2 on 1 off schedule.
In the month leading to the Games he did 2 workouts a day once every 2 weeks and also once 5 workouts in two days with minimal rest, just to see how his body reacts to the demand.
He also worked on gymnastics specific skills for 4 month, one or two days a week.
Asked why he does does CrossFit, Matt says:
I CF because i wanna be able to do anything in life without ever saysing no, whether its going white water rafting ,loong hikes with some friends. doing my job. i wanna be able to do whatever anybody asks me to do , and never have to turn something down because of physical limitations.
