But, yes, I remember when @Fitters were up in arms about David Morgan's muscle-up form in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHEkokQSGmU

Suddenly, this doesn't look so bad, you know?

Though this popped up as a related video and I've just got to say I really dig his gymnastic skills: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Rf61...eature=related

This is interesting, on a rhabdo search and found this comment:

@nike05 If you love CF, do it. Been there, done it. Sketchy science at best. In our place, the goal is always to improve performance first. Of course we use KB, DB, MB, sleds, vertimax, jammer, oly lifts & variations, & every other tool that will help.
In the last 3 years, dozens of athletes(incl the UFC ltwt Champ!) have left CF & similar facilities & come to us BECAUSE we apply real training science. I’ll say it again:love CrossFit? Do it! Tired of no performance gains? Come see us. Cheers!
Turns out its Frankie Edgar

@nike05 KEY difference:Oly lifts in our programming aren’t ONLY for the sake of making the workout harder. Scientific rationale for every movement.Every time I talk to a CF’er, trainer or member, they can’t give me a shred of science related to their programming. We use hundreds of tools to get PERFORMANCE results with our athletes & clients.
Your exercise culture should never be based on the Helsinki Syndrome or on the concept that group pain for pain’s sake makes it ok.

@heywood1980 You have no fucking clue how hard this style of traning is fucktard. I dare you to attempt a real crossfit workout and tell me it’s not hard or it sucks because its lame. You are so stupid, i wish you and your kind would fuck off and go back to your pussy gyms where you think you’re working out at.

on MMA, here's an interview with Jonathan Chaimberg back in 2009 when he trained GSP... link (from strengthcoach.com)

Starts halfway in the podcast 28:35
Talks about CrossFit
Explosiveness
Training GSP mixed with sport training
GPP/Strength phases
Sports specific training
Mistakes by strength coaches (mentions CrossFit style & hard circuits, no periodization)

Then Nate Marquardt mentions his wife quits Crossfit http://youtu.be/UjiznSuoCk8 haha

Ditto on the recent moderation for me. In the past I got banned from the Journal. See http://www.statisticool.com/crossfitwegotthescience.htm for background. Still waiting on their science that "..will dwarf anything ever conceived of in Framingham or Harvard Nurses", FYI. Have yet to see even one peer reviewed scientific study published in a respectable standard journal.

Maybe http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CFSC_HeiniePic.wmv is the science they were talking about?

I'm predicting a DNF on the science.

Seriously, look at the way Mounce conducts himself. Completely without any sort of personal integrity.

If he was a criminal, he's be a snitch.

In prison, he'd be a rat and a bitch.

In, perhaps, a previous incarnation of the military, he'd be fragged.

Glassman thought, at one point, that the data he could mine from the WOD comments constituted legit science.

The amount of exaggeration and lying that happens on the WOD comments makes even anecdotal trending a bit shaky.

I'm glad somebody brought up the "We Got The Science" thing again. This is going to be a DNF. In 30 years. I think your article on it perfectly highlights everything that's wrong with it. It's marketing. It is the epitome of what is wrong with CrossFit(TM) - haughty bluster that sounds good with no real followup or delivery and any attempt to point out that flaw is unwelcome. I just bought a copy of the FHS book because I noticed a used copy on amazon for $0.01 (plus shipping), which is too good of a deal to pass up.
