Here's another little chalkboard video transcript, courtesy of the same faithful one:


Pudding: (Recalling tale of running, wall ball and box jump workout where couch was supposedly training body builders) . Scaled appropriated, anyone one the planet who's functional, healthy, should be able to perform that workout at some level. . . . If all your training separates musculature
with isolation movements, uh, that workout will likely injure you.

Couch: Yeah, I've got it, I've heard a lot of body builders doing (innocuous?) mistakes. Box jump.

Pudding: Jumping up on a box .. .

Couch: Up, ouch! What happened? hamstring, or hip, knee or something, its weird.

Pudding: So there is some integration of these movements .. .

Couch: Of course there is. Immense, immense. Widely interdependent, just the, just the inter, just the interplay of of glute, hamstring, and quadricep is dizzying in its, in its ramifications, I think.

Pudding: Right . . .

Couch: More complex a system than I want to take apart.

What a douche canoe.

These Chalkboard videos almost make me want to subscribe to the journal so I can watch the whole thing. If the 30 second preview is this kind of a trainwreck, what happens when he rants for 10 minutes at a time? There are probably $25 worth of laughs in there.

Probably. It's not a mathematical reality.

Hit refresh and see what else you get.
Good Gawd that hurt my brain and I only hit refresh once.!

Seriously. The NSCA may be full of it and all, but who are they really hurting?

CF disciples blindly follow that guy, who in the best case is really sleepy, or maybe has the flu in that video. Worst case, well...

Speaking of weeding out those that question..... Exhibit umm.... what are we at, H now???

Say goodnight to Whole 9, they of Melissa Urban and Co.

I know that beating on Crossfit's business practices is pretty much like beating a dead horse, then backing over it with a truck- twice, then putting it through a wood chipper, but I do wonder what happens to the brand- if anything- when the only affiliates that are left are the ones the Irongarm boys take so much pride in posting form links from.

Does this mean the Whole9 crew will be speaking at the Black Box summit, with all the other Black Sheep??

So you can't be an affiliate now at all unless you tow the party line? Err.....

I guess they had just evolved their concept of fitness a little too far for some people's liking.

Good luck to the two of them.

I guess so. If you are more interested in developing strength and better fitness than you are in Zoning and vomiting then you're out. No need for the week in the 'CF Community'

There's plenty of room for the weak, on the other hand.
