Re: Military says You’re Too Flabby For CrossFit

I would guess that taking away most (all?) of the weighted training would be a sure-fire way to reduce a lot of the more severe injuries -- BW exercises tend to be relatively non-harmful even if you...

Re: Military says You’re Too Flabby For CrossFit

It has already been said several times, but I guess one more time won't hurt: basic training is not the place where people are trained for combat.

Basic training is where recruits are mentally...

Re: Military says You’re Too Flabby For CrossFit

I don't see anything knee-jerk about that. That is pretty sound thinking, to me. You take some 18 year old that has been sitting on a couch, watching TV and drinking Pepsi for the last 18 years...
