There are enough reasons to hate on CF beyond their treatment of the Oly lifts. A lot of the people trying to preserve the "sanctity" of weightlifting don't even powerclean 100kg. Gimme a break.

30 reps for time of that--whatever you call it--ground to overhead snatch or C&J will do little for your Olympic lifting, but it's an excellent bit of conditioning that cannot be replicated by DBs or KBs. It's especially good for fighters.

This exercise isn't going to mess up your OL...unless 60kg is substantially heavy for you, in which case you don't need to be too critical.

Remember, this isn't being done for a sport. It's a competitive exercise exhibition. Nothing is being ruined. I can't stand what CF has become, but that video was impressive.
