Re: Define "functional movement" in your own words?

I'm inclined to agree. Everything is functional for something.

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

As a risk manager, are you ever asked to give estimates without hard data? Non-sarcastic question.
If yes, what would you say in this case?

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

That's interesting. That doesn't mean it was from rhabdo or adrenal fatigue though. I've urinated brown and bright red myself after running a few times. When your bladder is totally empty and you're...

Ok, I can agree with that.

I still do Crossfit, but I've stopped doing thrusters, sumo deadlift high pulls, box jumps, push presses, double-unders, virtual shoveling, dumbbell cleans, kipping...
