I'm sure I can find other people who go 100% on the wod and still play ether a competitive sport whether that be olympic lifting, soccer, track etc.

On a Paleo diet or one with animal protein one could easily say go play a sport after about half hour rest or wait two hours in order to play at a perceived 100%. I don't understand if you're playing at a casual level why you would be concerned about being fully recovered, eg. DOMs to be gone and glycogen stores to be refueled, why would you possible care about this? Just go play...if it is a big concern have a PWO meal with some protein and starchy paleo carbohydrates (sweet potato, yam etc.) which tend to restore muscle glycogen over liver glycogen.

During the summer or when I can, usually after my WOD(s), I go play a sport of my choice like soccer after a few hours of rest and I go as hard as I can aswell.

I can't really weigh in here as my program is going to be a day and night comparison to yours and I would like to point out of course you will recover faster, you don't push your self 100%. Others who do probably recover at the same speed if not faster. Who's going to be more sore? Someone working at 75% of there potential or someone working at 100%?

May I also ask how long you have been crossfitting for? And your end goals? If your goals, as it appears you state are more for longevity rather then strength etc., wouldn't it be a good idea to drop basketball and crossfit? They as you most likely know aid in an exercise-induced increase in cellular respiration, aka increases the release of free radicals that essentially cause aging and the break down of the body. In a sense being counter productive to what you initially set out to do. But of course it would be silly to propose for someone to stop working out in order to live longer...see a parallel?

I too have taken economics classes. 3 in college in fact. In my opinion they do not even begin to educate students on the nuances of the system.
well i'm glad that your 3 college economics classes has left you qualified enough to discuss with Steven the nuances of the monetary system that those classes apparently don't teach. fantastic.

I assume that with those 3 classes you think the gold standard's a better idea?
