Robb,

A 25% reduction in leaping ability is frightening! Did you find a similar loss in your Oly lifts? I've been just working on my oly lifting lately... preparing for my first meet, but I was thinking of hitting CrossFit whole hog once the meet is over. Your post has given me pause...

You seem to indicate that the jumper is able to do what he does because he never bathes his muscles in lactate... but wouldn't a decathlete necessarily do that to achieve near-world-class 400m times, and excellent 1500m times? And yet, they still put up excellent 100m, HJ, and LJ numbers...

25% seems like a high price to pay for MetCon glory.
