Don't you know? Abz are the secret to super-strength, as one of our illustrious posters in this very thread pointed out

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

I skipped a few pages so sorry if this became irrelevant. Everyone keeps saying this and that about rhabdo, muscle and tendon tears etc caused by Crossfit. But unfortunately, whether you like it or not, most of us don't know squat. No one on this thread produced concrete data about Crossfit and injuries (again I skipped a page or two so if someone did please correct me). Just pointing to the injury thread is not enough. A good starting point would be to go through each thread post see what the injury is, the severity of the injury, where the injury occurred, and what could have caused it. Some factors to consider are programming, coaching, diet and nutrition, regular activities and daily habits, and general lifestyle.

Anyone feel up to the task?

Also comparing competitive Crossfit to other sports is like comparing apples to oranges. I keep reading in this thread about the rate of injuries in Crossfit vs the rate of injuries in other sports/fitness programs but I have yet to see one factual numerical rate. I certainly don't know and I don't pretend to know.

"teh abz" were a goal of mine, but I rather enjoy pounding a pint of Ben&Jerry's after a day of heavy squats once in awhile.

I know for a fact that in the last seven days one of my lifters fell off her bike and broke her wrist, and one of my coaches went skimboarding and broke his arm.

According to a bit I saw on the news just a couple of minutes ago, Alex Trebek tore his achilles this week chasing a burglar down the hallway of his hotel room.

Jeopardy is a hell of a sport.

Have a read if you have some time to kill

I haven't read it for a few weeks, but the guy's counted around 200 cases of rhabdo.
