Although i don't pay much attention to x-fit, my impression is that "for time" is an essential element. That is, an all-out effort, or close to it, is an essential element of most workouts. This aspect of x-fit explains why you won't find a competitive athlete in any sport using the x-fit intensity prescription. It's just wrong.
