Re: CrossFitters vs Decathletes

Obviously things like kipping pull-ups aren't hard, but how many people can do 40 of them without ever doing them before (especially someone over 180lbs)? I certainly haven't seen many.

Re: CrossFitters vs Decathletes

How long have you been doing CF and what were your times on various WODs when you first started? How much can you deadlift? C&J? Have you competed at Sectionals/Regionals?
