Andy and Nicole were instructors ad both my level 1 and level 2 cert, both are class acts and are great trainers. Too bad they aren't running things.

It was pretty cool the way it was described. The hands and arms were just corkscrewed in a very subtle way. It seemed that once the athletes got the hang of it, they were more relaxed everywhere from their arms up to their jaws.

I'll have to see if I can dig up the article.

They really do seem like two sharp individuals and class acts, I get the impression if they ran the show, Crossfit wouldn't have any of the problems we're seeing.

My mistake, that's just another Greg Glassman quote.

Everyone who's ever heard of Crossfit should read that to know the background on this organization.

That might have been the best overview of xfit I've ever come across, and ordered in a chronological fashion?? Bookmarked!

This is 99.9% of the fitness population. Amongst this, we all have varying degrees of how far we want to push it. Personally, I will do a PL meet here and here, will probably do some other strength related competitions at some point, but really I'm just a wannabe strength athlete. I want to get better, stronger, but I also want to be healthy and take a long term, safe approach to everything. I'm on the wrong side of 25 (or hell, 18) to get into any sport too seriously.

For this population, of which I am a part of, recovery is of the utmost importance, and the pendulum swings heavier in the recovery direction the older you get. This is something Dan John, Pavel, Wendler, etc harp on routinely. If it means I skip a workout, or take it easy for a week, so be it. But these CFers work out routinely while they're banged up, and think it's some badge of honor. For people who joke routinely about the Darwinism of their "sport", a lot of them just follow the rest of the lemmings off the cliff.

Stellar work on that sprint mechanic bit, ADub.
