As an intelligent person, I would do that. I don't know why you think what I'm saying only applies to CrossFit.

You have your standards for what constitutes too much risk in your gym, and I have mine.
I get what you are saying, and what I am saying is: I do run CrossFit workouts at my gym and I don't have constant injuries coming out of my program. That is the disconnect here I believe. Lots of gyms have lots of people doing CrossFit and no serious injuries.

Ok, maybe we are talking about differnt things. I am talking about the activity of CrossFit, the sport. If you are not please let me know. I Love Weightlifting, I love powerlifting, I love strongman. I love pretty much any strength sport, and that is what I consider CrossFit.

I never refuted the fact that people can get injured doing Crossfit.

I stated that injuries are a risk you take with any physical activity, and I don't believe that the risk is greater with Crossfit than anything else that requires similar power/speed/endurance output.

In addition, I stated that I think Crossfit is good evidenced by the fact that I am in better shape that I have ever been in my life. It's awesome for me, but nowhere in my posts will you find me touting that it would be awesome for everyone.

If you can't paraphrase my statements accurately, leave me out of your posts.

One of My favorite quotes by Greg Glassman is:" CrossFit is for anyone but it is not for everyone."

That's where risks and rewards come in. A 3% injury rate might be phenomenally good for a professional sport, but disastrously unacceptable in a rec league. Something like a Special Forces selection program would draw the line much differently than a fitness program for soccer moms.

To some extent, each individual does have to decide what level of risk is acceptable for them: as a longtime martial arts student, I probably have a somewhat different view of things than a reformed couch potato.

But individuals need *information* to make that kind of decision.

IMO that should be modified somewhat because negatives themselves are not bad at all. It would be doing many, many, many reps, or doing that in an already weakened state, which are bad. If someone starting fresh or almost fresh did a weighted pullup and emphasized the negatives until positive failure, and then stopped, I doubt that would be cause for concern.

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

Aye, in general negatives are an early progression start point for many gymnastics progressions...But you can use negatives in advanced work as well.

Bottom line, it is strength work and should be treated as such...3x5 with 2-3 minutes rest between sets for example...
