Re: What exercises aren't part of crossfit programming, but you think should be?

i actually have added these into my own program over the last few months. i love doing rounds using the body bag with kb swings and jump rope. i also found that stadium steps are really more about balance, precision, and timing then anything else. i am not sure how many of you guys use the crossfit endurance website, but i will add a few wod's from there that include sprints & suicides.

personally i would like to see the use of some cables. i saw a few mountain climbers working out at my globo with a long rope extension on the cable. and there are a few other ways that you can incorporate multi-joint movements using cables.
