The Outlaw Way to win at Regionals

I touched on The Outlaw Way before, but I did not get into depth on it.  Today, Rudy announced his thought on moving forward including his new Fee For Service style attack.  While he still offers the typical programming Outlaws have long followed, he is now sectioning off a bit of the site to people willing to open up the checkbook.

Outlaw’s Coach and Owner, Rudy Nielson, faced a dilemma on Regional strategy.  He has long worked with a number of athletes separated miles and even ocean in some occasions.  Rudy and team just returned from a Europe trip where he coached up a number of Outlaws from across the UK.  Upon announcing he would shut off access to the WOD strategy, Rudy seemed to receive a growing number of “I’ve been an Outlaw for a long time. I should get access!”  He evidently determined his best line in the sand would be making those unofficial Outlaws cough up 5000 pennies.  That’s right, for only 50 dollars American, you can also catch Outlaw’s list of strategies, tips, commentary, etc.  He even went a step further and decided to do a little security for himself to prevent people from just passing passwords.

In the end, Rudy plans to put the $50 per keyboard welding Athlete to good use as he tours the country, visits as many Regional contests as possible, and pays for the trips.  Don’t fear, lovely Outlaws. Rudy has long known the art of posting on the go.  The list of Outlaw qualifiers may exist, but who knows the real list of creepers trying to gain an edge by reading his strategy and tips?


The Outlaw Way’s Regional Plan

I won’t get into the entirety of my thoughts on Rudy Nielson and his Outlaw Way, but I can say that he has a lengthy list of subscribers.  Rudy owns/coaches at Outlaw CrossFit and began an experiment/online venture to push his programming to some non-centralized folks.  He has long provided programming for the likes of Brandon Phillips and other Games Competitors, but this year he upped his game.

Rudy publishes the Outlaw Way WOD online and watched his following increase.  He may be onto something as there are few online sites giving games preparation and year round detailed templates for athletes.  As the Open began, his numbers increased, but those that qualified for the games and were with him prior to the qualification date will be given access to his “instructional and strategy videos”.  He looks to keep some things from the general public before he finds a way to start charging for his ‘services’.

If you want his views on the WODs, you’ll have to wait.  He is holding back until he sees a few Regionals, but he is still providing a daily strength focused template for everyone, not just those looking to qualify for CarsonHere are the rest of his thoughts from today and what will be a site you will likely start hitting more than BP himself.
