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???

"The Achilles is the strongest tissue in the body, and having it rupture was no easy task."

Taken out of context, it's almost as if it were the trainer's goal to rupture that tough sumbitch.

While I'm a bit empathetic towards these individuals who get hurt at the hands of crossfit (except for Lisa M), as they're putting their trust into Crossfit and their "accredited" trainers, at some point they need to smarten up. When your ankle is feeling a little tender after the 5th jump, and again on the 6th, maybe cut the set short on the 7th.

The box jump is a power development movement. It's highly stressful. They should know this. AMRAP box jumps in a circuit is about as sensible as loading up a bar with 80% of your max and performing AMRAP back squats in the middle of a circuit, then have a trainer scream to say you can do it, death before DNF, and we'll see how long you last before you jack up your low back or knees.
