Re: What is considered fit?

This went from a legit question by OP, to full on trolling by the usual...

are we done, yet?

Re: What is considered fit?

Yes, sorry if I forgot to state that.

Let me state that I think an elite CF'r would be very fit by most people's definition of "fitnes"". I just don't think "fitness" is as neatly defined as a power graph.

Well then that's where your beliefs diverge from CF and we'll end this.

perhaps he is. BF% has nothing to do with it for one thing... and if he has a higher VO2 max that's great... can he put out and beat our tabata squatter in a 5km run? How about a 10k? If he can't produce the power output then who gives 2 craps about his higher VO2 max?

edit: Just saw that we are agreeing to disagree and ending this before we do another lap.
