I think you're simply approaching CF the wrong way. If you're a competitive level athlete, you should only be doing strictly CF WODs if your goal is to compete in CF. Saying a power lifter wouldn't win a title by CFing is certainly true but that's the exact opposite of CFs goal. CF is designed not to specialize in any one area so why would a specialist train exclusively CF?

CF doesn't position themselves as the best way to train, regardless of your goals.
