Today we're talking to CrossFit athlete Griffin Roelle, who competed as a rookie at the 2020 CrossFit Games. Griffin found the sport after a lengthy football career. He brought an immense base of strength to his CrossFit training, which is reflected in his results: He’s one of the all-out strongest athletes in the sport, and he won the max front squat event at this year’s CrossFit Games with a 490 pound lift. We discuss the limits of programming for strength and endurance, along with what Griffin thinks athletes should prioritize to excel at heavy workouts.
