Default Injury Rates For Strongman and Crossfit

Scott provided me with an excellent post I put up at my blog that gives his insights on injury rates in strongman, Crossfit and strength training in general. This is a good read and may keep this thread active a bit longer.

There have been some good discussions on CF Radio after the Boyle/Cook criticisms of Crossfit on training for the military and reducing injury rates. There was a training officer who said that after implementing CF methodology he saw a dramatic decrease in the number of injuries. There was also a rebuttal about the benefits of high-rep Oly lifting, arguing that many people have to do technically difficult things when they're tired.

I don't know if I personally advocate it, but Grace is an a**kicker of a workout.
