If you can't man up, then you are all talk.
Hey Bryan, when you actually START doing @Fit again, you will find your blind defenses of the program more widely accepted.

As to my training regime? It is superior to @Fit. It's superior at making me a better rugby player and seeing as I'm right in the middle of the season of AN ACTUAL SPORT, I don't have time to practice double unders, SDHP and muscle ups.

But hey, since YOUR training regime is superior, I can't wait to see YOU kicking ass and cashing those weekly checks. You do have an elite level of GPP, right?

I just get tired of everyone griping on here. I don't care you don't believe that I don't "Crossfit". I train the way that I have chosen and have no qualms admitting that I not be on a podium this year or collecting any checks. I enjoy training and competing. If I am not on top, that is perfectly fine.

Honestly, you should concentrate on things you can control. People are going to gripe on here no matter what you claim, say or do.

Might be a good time for you to bow out of this thread.

Since I obviously have no clue as to what I am doing (insert appropriate sarcasm level), please give me the definition of "doing Crossfit.". When is adding strength with a periodized schedule running afoul of the dogma? If do more than 3 on, 1 off, am I committing a sin? If I wish to improve Oly lifts to compete soon (ie learn and play sports), when does that run afoul?

a definition of what? crossfit? From my understanding, if it has any form of periodization, its not crossfit. I recall a quote floating around about that.

"Constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity."

I think you're just trolling now.....

I may be, but in what I have provided in prior posts as to my program, when have stepped away from that definition? When exactly can someone repeat a backsquat or other movement?
