in defence of CrossFit

Carl Paoli asks good questions. But I’m not convinced by his answers.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Obviously there are better and worse drills for each individual at a CrossFit gym. Having everyone do the same Workout Of the Day is already a mistake, as far as I’m concerned. Some common easy warm-up could be safe and effective, but after that the program should be individualized.

CrossFit is getting better. The best gyms are excellent. Yet I feel many have a long way to go.

As a competitive sport, the judging is far worse than in Artistic Gymnastics.
