Re: Article on Crossfit in today's Seattle Times
That's a balanced article. With respect to Dave's back, it occurs to me that the functional and varied aspects of our program amount BOTH to rehab AND prehab.
I didn't comment on it at the time, but a few weeks ago on the Main page I was debating someone on progressive training on repeated movements, versus our randomization. The next cycle they asked for help with an overuse injury.
So keep in mind the "medicine" aspect of this, that they also talked about in the article. If it's broke, CrossFit helps fix it. If it isn't broke, yet, CrossFit helps keep it from breaking. And a big part of our prescription is doing a LOT of different movements, in varying patterns.
