Yet another "Study" saying CrossFit is bad for you...gawd people let it go already

Hey HQ, any idea on what this BS is?

New Zealand Herald Article - Why too much CrossFit is bad for you
WFS

Fuller Article here
MedicalDaily.com
WFS

Link to study here
Two Consecutive Days of CrossFit Training Affects Pro and Anti-inflammatory Cytokines and Osteoprotegerin without Impairments in Muscle Power
WFS

Trying to read through all the scientific gobbledygook, it would appear Mr Tibana et al. failed to follow even basic programming recovery principles.

That's a good reason to follow CF programming per the prescribed schedule they teach. Constant variety, 3 on/1 off.

My concern is this has been posted by most major newspapers around the world.

I imagine the 2 russells will be right on it.

Again my inital reading is that the programming wasn't crossfit at all. And failed to cover basic recovery principles.

Hard to tell as the study is so poorly written.

Seriously why must so many academics use 12 words where 4 would be more than enough. It doesnt make you sound smarter it makes me think you failed your english gen-ed.

Re: Yet another "Study" saying CrossFit is bad for you...gawd people let it go already

OK here's the brief on the specific training they did.

Quote:
Training Session Days
Subjects completed 2 training sessions 24 hours apart (table 2).

In workout of the day 1, subjects completed:
a) five sets of one repetition of snatch from the block at 80% of one-repetition maximum (1RM) with 2-5 minutes of rest intervals;
b) 3 sets of 5 Touch & Go Snatches (full) at 75% of 5RM with 90 seconds of rest between sets;
c) 3 sets of 60 seconds of weighted plank hold with 90 seconds of rest; After the third set of the aforementioned exercises, 5 minutes of rest was allowed and then endurance conditioning was performed with 10 minutes of as many rounds as possible (AMRAP)
- 30 double-unders
- 15 power snatches (34kg) (Padulo et al., 2015).

In workout of the day 2, subjects completed:
a) five sets of one repetition of clean and Jerk from the block at 80% of 1RM with 2-5 minute rest intervals;
b) 3 sets of 5 touch and go cleans (full) with 70% of 5RM with 2-5 minute rest;
c) 3 sets of 10 strict hand standing push-ups;

After the third set of the aforementioned exercises, 5 minutes of rest was allowed, followed by endurance conditioning with 12 minutes AMRAP of
- Rowing (250m, Concept)
- 25 target burpees.

The goal of the endurance conditioning sessions were to complete each training session in the quickest time possible, without compromising exercise technique.
Were the F**K is the recovery day for the heavy lifting?!
OK granted, I find most of the study unintellegable, but how do these guys not know that heavy lifting throws out homestasis and you need 24 hours recovery or at worst active recovery before hitting it again.

Smells to me like someone has never actually trained in their lives, or are looking for the lime light. Let's know CrossFit that'll get us in the paper.

Anyone read any differently?
