That has 100 cases of rhabdomyolosis on his messageboard...

Isn't working? No 700 pound deadlift after 2 years of CrossFit.com?
and that in able to do his prescription you actually have to do a completely different prescription, not made by him. That was designed by:

An athlete.
Who exercises.
Who has credentials.
Who have produced competitive international athletes.
That have competed on the international level in their sport.
And uses efforts by researchers, coaches, and athletes.

?

And by doing this, we're actually doing the exercise prescription set by:
The blogger...
Who doesn't exercise...
That has zero credentials...
That has never produced a competitive international athlete...
Or never competed on the international level in anything...
And commonly insults established researchers, coaches, and athletes...
And is inventing his own science...
That has 100 cases of rhabdomyolosis on his messageboard...

?

And the extension of his exercise prescription brand through affiliates isn't actually following his prescription, but instead is following another exercise prescription, that was designed by:

An athlete.
Who exercises.
Who has credentials.
Who have produced competitive international athletes.
That have competed on the international level in their sport.
And uses efforts by researchers, coaches, and athletes.

And not him?

Are we saying this? I thought CrossFit is an empirically and experientially tested protocol, evidence based and scientifically proven effective.

at first I saw the intensity and thought "Damn!" Then I saw it was just for indoor rowing on a machine, then "Ehhhh."

And Twight reinvented the Total Gym?

Why is the Mark Twight Gym Jones picture in that one?

He was kind of Crossfitty. Now he's pretty far off from that.
