the crossfit games should be called the crossover games because the competitors were already very athletic prior to their introduction to crossfit

Rich is not the strongest....he is the most "efficient" at a lot of stuff he does.  I would say though, the 300lb snatch is impressive, but not something that is an indicator of why he is champion.

Always count on Coach to chime in with anti-crossfit shit   Roll Eyes  Post that video again where you had the kid slinging the sandbag across his shoulders and other shit because you are making him a better athlete.  Do you also help your athletes out with their drug regime too Coachiepants?

The Coach is so jealous of Crossfit! Lol. No matter how many David Ramsey and Rich Dad! Books Coach reads, he still can't touch the profits Crossfit generates. That's why they call jealousy "the green eyed monster".

I don't cross fit but I respect those who really dedicate them self to it. Just like you can't take a beginner bodybuilder in the gym and make fun of him you shouldn't do that to a beginner cross fit guy.

Most guys would be crushed if they ever tried to hang with in shape cross fitters. That big bench means nothing when it comes to conditioning.

Those guys who are not impressed with a 300lbs snatch know nothing about lifting weights.

500lbs bench pressors with a bench shirt are a dime a dozen. Very few 300lbs snatch guys across America.

sport 
/spôrt/
Noun

An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others.

Hmmmm....anything to say about that?

Unfortunately, you acting ignorant is not considered a sport, physical activity, or competition.  Oh, and by the way...its "wear".  No, I don't WEAR those shoes..but if are seriously blasting them, are you going to blast NFL players who WEAR them while training?  Love how you continually look for every little bit you can to rip on something about it. Find a hobby that's constructive.

Strangely I had this exact conversation someone on a crossfit board on another site about this video...

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=husk_i7FDpw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=husk_i7FDpw</a>

This was the response, it was a thread about what dumbass Glassman stated in a tweet...

Lets examine this particular day's training. We started out with soft-tissue work (foam roll, trigger point), dynamic warm ups w/active stretch followed by mobility drills, then core work paired up with a speed drill (I believe this day we did a sled march) then we went into out strength training which consisted of an ME lower body day. Since this was a maximum effort day, our recovery times for each power lift (Squats/Dead lift) were 2-3min between sets 6 sets of squats 4 sets of DL in the rep range of 3-1 for box squats and 3-1 for DL. Axillary lifts were at a :90 recovery. Are you with me so far??

After that is when we did our conditioning (the video). If you payed attention and knew what to look for, we did three rounds of 40 yards with the prowler, sand bag carry with an obsticle (the stacked tires) NOW...that took a total of about :30 the recovery was 2min...TWO MINUTES. We did not do 15 reps with a clean (we NEVER go above 5 with that or any O-lift) followed by anything else as an example. When I put my programs together, especially conditioning with loads, they are done with the three energy systems in mind. If I don't, these athletes would have a CNS breakdown and get injured, not MIGHT get injured, they would get injured. Glassman doesn't get that. Who cares what Glassman says? You'd be surprised. Just because you see people running around doing something that RESEMBLES crossfit, doesn't mean it is crossfit.
