Re: T-Nation, Shugart and the Truth About CrossFit

For what it's worth, I'm completely convinced that CrossFit is an amazing condition program. It's easily the best thing I've ever done to improve my fitness and conditioning for rugby.

I'm probably misconstruing what a lot of people are saying about the studies, then. I get defensive when I feel that anti-science vibe, but from what I'm understanding is that exercise science is much different that the physical sciences and that my ideas of "research, research, research", at least in the manner I am familiar with (set up an experiment, collect hours/days/years of data, analyze and publish and then argue) may not necessarily be how things are done? Correct?
