Re: Charles Poliquin on Crossfit

I don't think anyone here is saying Poliquin is dumb, or that he doesn't know tons of stuff we don't. Certainly I'm not.

The gripe is simply that he is comparing our program to a standard we are not trying to meet. He is evaluating our programming from within his own paradigm, when in fact we have evolved our own paradigm, and are content that our programming is consistent with the goals we set out to achieve. No doubt we can and will do better, but certainly there is nothing in the main site WOD's or the many WOD's posted by affiliates which is inconsistent with the objective of performing well across broad time and modal domains.

I should never say I'm done commenting. I'm much too windy, and when I get wound up I never stop.
