Coach’s Corner – CrossFit, Weightlifting Belts, & One Rep Maxes

Today we have another edition of the Coach’s Corner – so no guest today – it’s just me, and we’ll be back next week with our regular interview format.

Here’s what we’re covering in today’s episode. I start out by tackling the subject of CrossFit, specifically if it’s appropriate for those of us over 50 to start CrossFit, and I talk a bit about the pros and cons of CrossFit as an exercise modality. Then I talk about whether or not you need a lifting belt – and if so, when you should – and shouldn’t – use one. Finally, I wrap up by taking a few minutes to talk about one rep maxes and how to safely calculate your one rep max.
