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

Robb - Thanks for the response, and very well said.

Some of my frustration may be due to the fact that I'm currently both learning a lot and being feed some of the ACSM fare in grad courses. I find myself biting my tongue a good deal, not so much because the information I'm being taught is wrong, but but because I feel like there is a bias to it.

I'd love to see Crossfit methodologies be more accepted in this community. I'm actually considering devising a study when/if I decide on a PhD program. I do get that most of the people behind the movement don't see it as a productive use of their time though.
