Tim,
Power to bodyweight ratio seems to be a better measure of "fitness in general" and indicator of success with crossfit than strength to bodyweight. Strength is great, but work/time seems to be...

Josh that's a good point. I've also noticed that for me, high loads often lead to more metabolic effect than lighter weights for higher reps. For example, two-leg bodyweight squats don't have much...
