couple the fatiguing and resulting inability to "stabilize the midline" with heavy overhead explosive movement?

What about the potential for spinal injury in addition to the shoulder injuries that can result? Wow.

Wow...

I use this word commonly on the thread over CFJ on Metabolic Conditioning, but this whole thing is "legendary".

In the history of internet fitness, there has never been a workout that routinely disabled its participants as commonly as CF. And it appears to be happening more often.

and yet, the movement is spreading. Like the clap.

Ok. How about not programming it because it's a largely pointless, inferior movement?

The mentality of the main page programmers, and the CF coach I first started with here think that unless you are senseless into the ground, with upchucking after wards as a bonus, then it wasn't a good workout.

In IT when dealing with people that do dumb things on a computer we call it a I-D-Ten-T error (idiot).

Mainpage CF Wods could just be posted with scalings & warnings, it's not that hard to do. BrandX does a good job of it. For example when a GHD WOD appears on CF.com, Brand X immediately posts scaling and a warning, "Do not do GHDs in the WOD unless your are acclimatized ..."

Anyway, I'm happy I found CA recently as a result of you guys & these rhabdo threads being on the CF discussion board. After 2 years of CF, I take away some positives & negatives, but finding CA may turn out to be the best thing of all!
