Here is an irony...if it IS a CrossFit fad, it was started by Dan John originally...pretty sure he is the one that popularized the whole thing relating to discus throwers. the OHS was the go-to exercise for a nationally recognized discuss coach...john powell? Me, I like the OHS a bunch. The folks who CAN actually do the 15x BW schtick tend to display some damn impressive overall athleticism.
Guess I should have read the whole thread!
