    "crossfit? I do real sports. I'm not trying to win a gold medal in exercising".

    Haha. yeah, I forgot about for awhile and then couldn't find my notes. I already made the outline for part III and should be able to hammer it out within 4 weeks.

    I've gotten through bits and pieces. There's so much information that it's something that'll take years to fully digest.

    thats a huge bomb to drop on us and not give it out. speaking of, if anyone has open sourced documentation they want to share i can setup an FTP site or website to share it on my servers. as long as its not pirated material.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

  17. Rodja, I come to you for help. I had 2 articles saved in my bookmarks explaining why CrossFit in general sucks specially for beginners...yet I changed computers and forgot to do a back up on my Book Marks, off the top of anyone's head...do Any of you (Or Rodja) have some articles behind it please? I got a friend who is not really used to Power Lifting or Strength training and mainly followed BBing routines and wants to get stronger...problem is the CrossFitters at the gym are scouting him for their ranks ...I wanna save him from this, but he is like me...he asks for science and articles more than logic and reason behind my explanations.

    Much appreciated if any of you can help with this! Google is being a darn arse atm...
