    Meh, not so much. Getting people who are fatigued to do high rep oly lifts with crappy form is never a good thing...unless you're an ortho surgeon...

    Well there's training couches in place to correct ill form or teach it in the first place as well as possible weight adjustment to keep for practical and ultimately personal safety is of the individuals personal concern, nothing wrong with inventing something new at one point the only way to get big was to just eat chicken breast and broccoli

    You're assuming the coaches know what correct form is. I don't think I'd make that assumption...

    If the coach is endorsing using high-rep Oly lifts, then he/she does not deserve that distinction. Just as you cannot sprint a mile, you cannot perform lifts based upon power and technique while fatigued.

    He's also assuming that everyone who does crossfit does it in a crossfit gym with "coaches"

    Didn't the marines get rid of kipping in PT because of the related shoulder injuries?

    I agree, the only problem is that most people don't know the risks.

    They do not kip in PT tests. Just dead hangs. Kipping went away decades ago.
