Anyone attempting the above, should have an adequate base of strength/experience to avoid injury and produce a training effect. Any WOD posted by any affiliate should be approached with a sense for proper scaling. If you have to ask "What is a GHD and how do you do a sit up with one?", then you most likely should not attempt an insane number of GHD situps without a proper base of experience. Kipping should be after a base of strict pullups and proper shouldle girdle development. I have no opinion on SDHPs over then to excercise common sense with the movement.
Speal has gotten Rhabdo from GHD - Situps. I am pretty sure there are some games competitors that have had surgery for SLAP tears.

These are not injury prone exercises only in newbies, or people not knowing how to program them. They are injurious to all people because they either 1) should not be done ever or 2) should not be done at HIGH INTENSITY ever.

Since by definition CF is high intensity (constantly varried, functional movements, executed at high intensity) then they should never be used in CF.

Jesus, the fact that in order to be CF it BY DEFINITION MUST be done at high intensity makes CF retarded. ALL good affiliates, and users regularly program recovery days/weeks where intensity is diminished to facilitate recovery. That means during that time they are not doing CF. Skill work is NOT CF because it is not done at high intensity.

GG loves to point out how he has a definition and no one else does, well his definition makes smart programing NOT CF by definition.



Listen, CF has done some very very very good things. Do you know how many people squat on a regular basis now that never would have before??? Or people that DL, or do pull-ups? It has been a gateway for a lot of people to discover a fitness realm they would never have found otherwise. It acted as a common hub to disseminate useful training ideas and principles for a long time. It has created a network of trainers/gyms that have useful equipment compared to what was the standard.

The problem though, is that GG and CF HQ can't just let it be that. Instead they are trying to control and market this "program" that is the best ever in the world!!! Even though every "CF" gym does something different, and the most successful ones do what they did before CF mostly. But HQ rakes in insane amounts of money, and continues to expand the definition of what their program is, to the point that now CF means anything that is decent programing. Then they tell this to everyone that does CF, so now people think squatting heavy and running = CF. Or gymnastics with some lifting = CF. These are not CF and have been around for decades before someone thought the word CF. This is the root of most complaints, at least they are for me....

That's pretty much it in a nutshell.

DatingRx’d started out as a tool that I wanted to create for myself to find a female companion, also into CrossFit, to share my life with.
Good grief.

Who creates tools to find companions?
