Crossfit keeps saying tricep extensions and tricep kickbacks are not "functional movements or applicational to every day living"...
How else am I going to wipe my ass after taking a shit without doing a tricep extension or tricep kickback? THESE ARE FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENTS
Do I just asian squat and monkey scoop with both hands?
Now that I think about it, toilets aren't paleolithic either.
medicine ball cleans are functional. how else would you pick a basketball up off of the floor? curl it?

hahaha could you imagine seeing that in the NBA?
Calf raises ... according to crossfit not only do they cause rhabdo, apparently they're never used in walking, jumping, or running... Everyone knows running is non functional by the way

This thread is moving quickly at the moment so I'm a little behind but post BlackBoxgate (or whenever it was that Castro had his hissy fit) Robb Wolf singled out Nicole for criticism regarding her lack of credentials. Not sure if you were being sarcastic or not Andrew. She's always seemed like a decent person.

Meanwhile here is a fantastic young athlete who will sadly never be truly elite unless he tests himself at the Games:

Everyone who's ever heard of Crossfit should read that to know the background on this organization.
"November 28, 2009 Brian MacKenzie DNFs at the Quad Dipsea."


Now that one is interesting. Didn't Kelley Starrett and a bunch of other people from his gym finish it that year using CFE?
