As a young athlete, Coach Greg Glassman (founder of CF) believed training with weights would help him become a better gymnast. When three sets of eight lateral raises with a Ted Williams weightlifting set didn’t replicate the feeling produced by a two-minute routine on the rings or parallel bars, Coach had to get creative. After coming up with and self-testing a workout involving three rounds of 21, 15 and 9 Thrusters and pull-ups, Coach promptly threw up—but he knew he had found something that would make him better at his sport.
