Not that difficult to predict drama when you take a bunch of antiestablisment marketing genius blowhards and give them their own personal army of zombies who attempt to claim training methods as their own new invention that happen to have worked quite well for people for decades, all while discounting the science behind those training methods and protocols, AND completely botching the scientific process of trial and error (hint: you have to be able to admit you can make an error) with potentially catastrophic results for said zombies.

run-on much?

Oh yeah, and ostracize any person that attempts to make the whole system better through LOGIC and SCIENCE.

That's possibly the most cult-like aspect of the whole thing.. the people that are kicked out in a drama-filled explosion usually REALLY want to make crossfit BETTER as a whole.. but then that would call into question the omniscience of dear leader and we cant have that.

Nevertheless, at the actual courses, you can generally rely upon the candidates' utter exhaustion to prevent them from getting rhabdo. If you're too tired to spell your own name, you definitely can't perform 100 kipping pullups, 150 burpess, or what have you. Everyone just performs the exercises until they reach failure, then the exercise is usually switched. This isn't because the instructors are worried or even educated about rhabdo, but rather to just maintain the general "suck" of the program. It just happens to workout that everyone is too weak and tired to perform enough repetitions of anyone movement.
thanks man, always been curious about that.

which course did you attend?

The amount of arrogance in those previous two posts is enough to make me want to throw up.

Those posts are some of the most undermining statements I've seen from that donk. Unbelievable

It's FRIGHTENING to see how similar that post about mind control is to what CrossFit has built its foundation on. Wow.

Also, I know we don't have a running count of achilles ruptures yet but with these past two posts I'm thinking that we should start a tab. Aside from rhabdo and SLAP tears, this may be the most ridiculous possible injury someone could induce to a client, and to see these numbers climbing as rapid as they are really makes me sick.

"We did have fun making comments and loud popping noises."

Are you KIDDING ME???
