Brilliant, Gentlemen. You clearly get it. Believe it or not so many have extraordinary difficulty with substitutions and, as Scott, so aptly put it, the "consistency rule". These two notions seem to be the greatest difficulty to full implementation of our program.
The point needs to be made that the substitutions don't necessarily imply or represent a diminished training effect. That is the whole point of the "theoretical template" notion presented in the February CFJ (CrossFit Journal).
Were I to suggest that only and exactly the WOD yielded the fitness we desire I'd be undermining the very notion of randomized/unknowable physical challenges optimizing fitness.
