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.

with all due respect that they deserve all sports, one thing to be a fan of artistic gymnastics and other high performance is to practice it can be very hard to do crossfit but I doubt that is much more than a high-performance athlete, according to the video I’ve seen get to see a guy who is an amateur in gym obviously not going to do harder than a person who does crossfit. thank you please do a real comparison of a high-performance athlete; is much more of his training was taken out of the artistic gymnastics.
