Another one for the Rhabdo count. Watch for near the end "a little incident with rhabdo".

Yeah talk about spin; blaming the rhabdo on his physical therapist and calf raises, poor lad doesn't even realize it was the anti-blood clot medication that caused his rhabdo and renal failure. Thats like saying you got rhabdo from walking. I run into alot of anti-coagulate/ statin/ non-damaging rhabdo cases looking for Crossfit rhabdo cases; there's about an equal amount with the Crossfit rhabs and most of this type hits the calves. Definitely lawyer inspired, and definitely amateur job done on their behalf. If they really wanted to legitimately investigate it, instead of making a goofy dogma video they should have just emailed me.

I thought it was hilarious, since this thread is about re-reading the crossfit journal and correcting the bullshit, that they strategically mentioned not "programming jumping pull-ups for newbies" in the video.

Not what the Crossfit Journal and Crossfit.com says:



Crossfit Journal and Crossfit.com says scale regular pullups with jumping pullups if the client is new and can't do regular pullups in a wod, especially with 100 pullups prescribed [the wods that induce rhabdo]. CFJ even says scale Barbara (a rhabdo wod) with jumping pullups... Yet they say in this video they never have "newbies do jumping pullups"?




Case studies to look up:
"Acute swollen legs due to rhabdomyoloysis: initial management as deep vein thrombosis may lead to acute renal failure." Mallinson, Goldsmith, Higgins, Venning, Ackrill. British Medical Journal Nov 1994

"Acute compartment syndrome resulting from anticoagulant treatment." Hay, Allen, Barnes. British Medical Journal 1992

When Bill Starr wrote articles it was a good thing. Otherwise the CFJ is a pile of steaming crap.

Yeah the only reason why I paid for it was to watch Kelly Starrett and Mike Burgener videos, the rest is aweful. If you're looking for resources shoot me an email I'll send you my notes page address, last time I posted it here I had 400, up to 900 now, way better option than wasting $25 on Crossfit.

I've never seen someone with this kind of absolute strength and gymnastics capability in CrossFit before, King Kong with 45 pound strict muscle-ups and free-standing parallette handstand pushups: http://games.crossfit.com/features/v...rker-teen-wolf

I wonder what this guys background was pre-CF. Gymnastics?

Just to point out the myths about distance running. This is Peter Snell the 1960 & 1964 Olympic Games champion and former world record holder in the 800 meter, and '64 Olympic Games champion in the 1500, plus later became a Dr in exercise physiology. 800 best being 1:44, 1500 being 3:37, mile being 3:54. Peter Snell was an athlete of the infamous coach Arthur Lydiard, and being so, a product of the 100 miles per week in base. That's right, he ran the 800/1500, and ran 100 miles per week, even runs up to 22 miles on the weekend or 10 miles worth of 400 meter intervals.






To be able to run a 1:44 800, they have to run or sub 11" 100, run or sub 22" 200, sub 47" 400. Peter Snell along with all other long sprinters do this, with 22 mile runs in their base weeks and 10 miles almost daily.
In able to pull off these numbers the slow twitches have to be oxidized and you have to have a high vo2 max to rely on. This can't be done with circuit training or tabata.

Wait. Is King Kong just one of each exercise? Seems to me it was multiple rounds.

I also thought King Kong was timed?
