BTM Shorts: What's in a WOD and how to read it!
On this short episode, it's just Madison chatting about his experience with programming and what to look at when you look at a workout. Ways of doing workouts to get healthier and fitter. Pacing and reasons why certain things are programmed. I'm hoping to shed a little light on behind the scenes of programming workouts and how to get better at them. More of these types of podcasts are to come.

Episode 11
On this episode, Lambert and Madison catch up after a few months of recording an episode.  We talk about "competitive" programming vs. class programming and when should you choose one over the other. Personalized programming vs. general programming.  We also talk about "open gym" memberships vs class memberships and what the differences are between the two. Madison also talks about a bit of the first world problems of owning a gym and what he's learned over the year/years.

Episode 10 - Benchmark workouts and the 'Why' behind the programming
On this episode, Lambert asks Madison some questions that he had and had heard throughout the week in the gym. The questions were finding out the "why" behind a lot of the workouts and sequencing of movements. This past week, we tested a bunch of benchmark workouts and explain the benefits of them. How testing can help you stay fired up in the gym and also how to manage the downs that can come up from testing. The programming seems random at times and some times the reasoning behind when stuff is programmed seems crazy and not understanding why. We cover what a "recovery" workout means and why would you do certain things  before a WOD.

Episode 9 - adding volume and building an engine
On this episode, I sit down with Shayne Denihan, a member or Ute CrossFit and long time crossfitter. Lambert was out of town, so Shayne agreed to have a chat about things beyond the workout! We talk about adding in volume to training and how to make sure you don't over train or under recover. The conversation goes everywhere but the overall arching theme is how to get better at exercising fast! We had a little hiccup with the memory card getting full, but the camera picked up the audio. It's a short part of the video, but enjoy!

Episode 8 - A few Diet Myths, Lamberts weight loss Journey, and calories in vs. calories out.
On this episode of Beyond the Metcon,  We talked about setting goals in regards to diet and weight loss that are realistic and how to understand that expectations and reality are two different things. We get a little vulnerable with talking about Lambert's weight loss journey, how he thought he would feel once he made it to a certain weight, and what he's doing to stay positive while realigning his goals. We also talk a little about calories in and calories out. We cover what calories burned looks like in different forms of exercise and how to use them properly to meet your goals.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 7
On this episode, Lambert and I are recording in the Ute CrossFit gym. We  talk about a few myths that we have heard throughout the years of our  experience either as crossfitters or as a coach. We wanted to break down  some of those and give some clarity to what's really going on in a  CrossFit gym and try to share some of the positives that happen in and  out of the gym.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 6
On this episode, we recap the 2021 open and talk about standards and  what to try to focus on going forward. After the open is over we get  excited about the test that we just put ourselves through and then we  work on a few weaknesses, but keeping that going all year is tough so we  talk about how to keep yourself excited and working on something even  on those days you don't feel like working out.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 5
On episode 5 of Beyond the Metcon, Lambert and I wanted you all to get to know us a little more in our CrossFit journey. We have had our ups and downs and wanted you all to hear the stories that we found funny after they were done. We talk about moments that we thought were funny or awesome in workouts, competitions, and even while coaching class. We all have those moments that we remember and will stay with us forever, such as PR's or moments of failure, but at the end of the day both are equally important. Let us know what moments have stuck with you over the years and even those moments that helped shape you into something better than the day before.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 3
On this week's episode, we talk about what you need for CrossFit, what is nice to have, and what cool but not really needed. As the episode progresses, we go from what we feel is really important for all crossfitters to have with them everyday/week to something you may use only once a year. Lambert and Madison, both have what they like to have with them that isn't the same as the others.  Here are a few links to a few products we talked about. When in doubt, give it a google. Jump Ropes: a few from Amazon, Rogue, and the most expensive we talk about 1. 2. 3. Rogue Site 1. 2.

Beyond the Metcon - Episode 2
In this episode we discuss the concept of healthy competing in CrossFit  on all levels.  That word scares some people in the world of CrossFit and excites some  people. We talk about how to use the competitiveness to help you meet  your goals and also how to use it to keep you excited to keep coming  back everyday.   Our main goal of this podcast was to talk about how to keep a healthy  mindset towards the idea of competition and how to use it to your  advantage to keep progressing forward to your health goals.
