Re: CrossFit and/vs Yoga

Going back to the OP - taking time off from CF probably allowed some of the adaptations to sink in. The yoga probably helped, but not to the extent that if you practiced yoga, yoga, and only yoga, your Fran time would endlessly improve. I do think that most people on these boards have not fully comprehended the power of gymnastics training, and yoga is a pretty good way to train gymnastics capacity. Ultimately, though, it doesn't replace the p-bars, pull-up bar, and rings - and definitely not the barbell.
