Today's Mainpage WOD:

"Meadows"

For time:
20 Muscle-ups
25 Lowers from an inverted hang on the rings, slowly, with straight body and arms
30 Ring handstand push-ups
35 Ring rows
40 Ring push-ups


FOR TIME, do this motion SLOWLY

Not only does this workout likely have no training benefits, they now also provide you with directly conflicting goals within the workout!

The idiocy hurts.

Most of the health benefits, if not all of them, accrue with just a moderate program emphasizing aerobic training roughly half the time, with a few resistance training sessions per week.

Default The Crossfit Grinder?

After reading Lyle McD's latest series of articles, it occurs to me that Dave Castro and Tony Budding probably think that they are doing something like the "grinder" programs of the old USSR and modern China. They have a program that will wreck all but the most genetically gifted, but as long as the cream continues to rise to the top, they're happy. Crossfit has always been about emulation of the firebreathers.

There is no way they don't know that they are ruining bodies; so they must not care.
