But here's my thing...

The methods they use have been around forever. Ex: circuit training

The exercises they use have been around forever. Ex: Clean and Jerk

I will admit, they do exercises that not in a normal routine. Ex: Toes To Bar

For example, the entire list of WODs on the mainsite is principles that have been around forever, with the exception of new exercises (muscle up).

What, if different, do they do that is so unique that it has exploded to what it has become today?
there are many things that make CF different and unique... to answer the question i think you are asking, here is one answer...
