you could move on the moon with the greatest of ease however you would also loose muscle mass, and bone density due to lack of "force"

That's what you think. The government says otherwise. And they always know best.

Re: Crossfit has weightlifting completely and utterly wrong!!

i get it now. i should base my caloric intake on a foundation of starches and grains. and probably not lift any weights cause this would cause me to get weaker. you have any more great tips from the government. i am trying to be very "healthy".

Re: Crossfit has weightlifting completely and utterly wrong!!

Logically, then, no one should ever pick a box up off the ground. It's too low.

I found their definition of "Force" interesting, too. I understand what they are trying to do, but that isn't even as smart as the signs I see in Warehouses, which tell you to get even with what you're lifting, and use your legs.

And ten pounds is a lot to grip? UPS expects WAY more than this from both their male and female employees.

This likely went through a committee, and all the possible problems were brought up, incorporated, and resulted in a document the very people for whom it was intended will laugh at, while ignoring it.

However, since no one will get hurt on their watch, maybe these guidelines will get a promotion for someone.

Guys,
NAVFAC has nothing to do with fitness. This is a guideline to prevent injury in the workplace, primarily for a group of retired, non-exercising Navy types as they maintain Navy buildings. When viewed through that lens this is much less apocolyptic.
