Can't really agree with all that, can't have everything, but definetely agree with the shorter sprints.

most people have a pair of boots and backpack or ruck...you could do a 45 to 70 lbs ruck march for 5 to 8 miles...that would be interesting...

8 miles with 70 lbs would take people not used to forced marches about 3 hours. Is it functional, absolutely, are you going to be much participation, probably not.

If you back into the archives, there are deadhang pullups, short sprints, weighted lunges, and a few other things that haven't popped up in years. I wish the short sprints were more common; at least a benchmark workout with some 100m sprints involved.

i am just saying that rucking could be an added exercised and if people need to modify it then they can and should...the weight and distance was just an example...

Re: What exercises aren't part of crossfit programming, but you think should be?

Good things not in normal CF programming:
  • Renegade rows.
  • Farmer's walks and waiter's walks, with all kinds of different apparatus.
  • Overhead walking lunges.
  • Suitcase deadlifts.
  • Skin-the-cats.

- Farmer's walks/ ammo carry definitely very useful.
- I'd also like to see low and high combat crawls for time if space wasn't a requirement and floors were somewhat padded. Put weighted vest on and carry 10+ pound curling bar/stick for added realism.
- Tabata type sprints
- Shrimping

Pretty sure it's where you lay on your back and kind of buck up/sideways and get moving in one direction or the other.

We used to do these for judo, called them ebi's, which means shrimp, imagine that!
