Re: Research Study: CrossFit related Injuries

Can you explain how a voluntary participation study can be of any statistical value?

Once you post it on this board you have added a filter to your selection process that could hurt your data. People with injuries, working without a coach and high level competitors are all more likely to be on these boards then the average CrossFitter who makes up the largest group in CrossFit. The group on these boards is at higher injury risk.

Lots of people trying to make a name for themselves either in CrossFit or attacking CrossFit.

Can you defend the quality of your scientific process? How is your study designed? Why is it valid?

As an affiliate owner I'm very interested in injury rates and even more importantly what are the most common injuries and can we change things to reduce the risk. I don't ever expect the risk to go to zero but if we as a community can identify best practices to reduce the risk that would be good.

I just like to see well designed studies with large enough sample sizes selected properly.

^^^^ Agreed. If 9 out of 10 people have a great experience, but 1 person has a bad experience, generally the one that makes the most noise is the one that has the bad experience. I don't think that's very reliable.

Brendan, please see my response on the Fitness post (sorry, I'm just learning to navigate this discussion board).

Although not a "major injury" it is still helpful, because it provides a qualitative way for use to say "most injuries that were reported" were minor injuries.

We are not simply looking at the proportion of people who report an injury. We look at the total number of people who are exposed (CrossFit), how long they are exposed for (workouts) and how many people actually report an injury. It's a little more complicated than 9/10!
