If he spent 10 years doing Crossfit, why did he not do a double-under until 2009?

I am also guessing that you have never experienced any serious injuries as a result?
You might press out a jerk and think it is acceptable, but other people do not, me being one of them. It is as bad as cutting off a squat and calling it good enough. It is not. If it is pressed out it is not a jerk. Either do it right or do something that you can do correctly. There is never an excuse for sloppy technique that does not measure up to standard. Well, other than bragging about time, I suppose.

If you want to press or push press for time, call it what it is. But do not call them jerks. You are comparing yourself to everyone who does the exercise correctly. This is akin to the gym lifter who bounces 315 off his chest with his *** a foot in the air while his 'spotter' hauls the bar up screaming 'it's all you bro!!!'

In the world of strength, standards matter, and if CrossFit wishes to compare itself to athletes, then it needs to perform up to standard.

Re: Gillian Mounsey Article

As an exercise, try replacing the word "CrossFit" with any other functional movement (oly, pl, triathlon, track and field etc.) discipline and see if your conclusions in your personal stories come out the same or different.

Seeing as the vast majority of Crossfitters were not competing in high-level athletics before doing Crossfit, and the majority of Americans are fat, I don't think it's reasonable to think that most adults know how to think for themselves when it comes to forging elite fitness.

In what way?

The possible reasons for you using this to make a point is intriguing. Enlighten me.

I'm just saying, if you're using him as an example of what the longest-lasting Crossfitter does, and he wasn't even following what was programmed by the mainsite or by tons of different affiliates, then it's not a very good example.

They come out very differently.

Right, because if he didn't do DUs then Greg frickin' Amundson wasn't doing CF.

Hilarious.
