Re: movnat style training - opinions

I view most of your examples as part of the "learn and play new sports" aspect of CF. I feel like this has been forgotten. Because CF is its own sport people train exclusively for CF now instead of branching out and experimenting with new things (in general).

I personally don't think it's a good idea to drop traditional methods of training to build strength, endurance, etc. However, there's no reason you can't do regular BB work and add in balance work, parkour style movements, rope climbs, or whatever else you want. I think this stuff should go into the practice portion of your workouts.

That's my opinion.
