It took me awhile to understand what "Hard Rounds for Big Guns" meant. I guess something about how you do x rounds in a WOD to get big arms.

Is Greg Glassman wrong? Please do not laugh, I reject most CrossFit/What Greg Glassmans says, I just know nothing about male gymnastics.
Shoulder problems are common but more because of imbalance issues rather than actual structural tearing issues like you can get from kipping pullups.

Um, there's some rings skills that are brutal on the shoulders so there's some people in particular that try to avoid particular sets of skills (the double backs inside of the rings guzoghy or whatever they're called).

But for the most part, no structural damage on a properly designed program.

Why are they shitting on a 365 front squat? It's not awesome, but it's pretty good. Yeah, an actual oly lifter or powerlifter is going to do more if they're serious, but, seriously...

The crossfit messageboards, entertaining as always

Coach Glassman has always said good fitness will chase out bad. In an open-sourced community like this, that has proven to be the case.

I recently read (I can't remember where) that there really haven't been that many reported cases of rhabdo in CrossFit. I don't know what the numbers are for SLAP or achilles tears, but I can guarentee the numbers of people getting incredibly fit and healthy are much more prevalent.
Quote:
Really?

Is approaching 200 cases of rhabdo not many? In my view, 1 is too many.
Quote:
200 is still a small percent.
