It's estimated that somewhere around 67% of the human population is at least gluten sensitive (if not gluten intolerant) so I mean...... take from that what you will.
I am happy for those who don't have issues with gluten proteins. You don't have to feel the experience of pooping a cannon ball or a waterslide on the same day and not knowing which one will come next.

From the 2011 Reebok/CrossFit Games, the clear answer now is to just use your
hands
. See Event 1: http://games.crossfit.com/node/630607

And see http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=69248 for what I'm sure will be answers full of virtuousity such as the already said "they never said you couldn't".

The most successful adult crossover athletes I know are all ex-polevaulters and/or ex-gymnasts. I've decided it's going to be mandatory for any child of mine to participate in those activities as they grow up.

Caveat: Any girls of mine will not be donning sequined leotards and doing those weird seizure-like floor routine moves.

EDIT: Meanwhile, Alex continues to fight the good fight with persistent, reasoned, polite questions. Years-old military affiliate vs. Crossfit mods is quite the standoff.

I remember watching this one time, and it was his physical therapist or doctor after his leg injury telling him not to squat or anything to jeopardize the surgery or what they did to fix his leg injury; explains why he limbs, he completely ignored them.

And I will admit that Glassman did say that about gymnasts.

Then again, I think everyone who watches a gymnast do their thing (or ANY athletic thing) for five minutes comes to this conclusion.

The logical end point of being obsessed with doing "more work" in less time. The idea of making a sport out of exercise isn't hugely exciting to me at the best of times, but when you don't even do the basic movements properly what's the point?
