    They have valid points, there are valid points on both sides I think, I'm fine with kipping pull ups because in don't always do them. They shouldn't be the only form of pull ups anyone does

    I've learned a lot from this thread. The biggest thing being that even though I am well into my 40s, I still cannot read the word 'snatch' without giggling.

    What valid points have you made? There hasn't been a rebuttal to the issues pointed out within the programming and implementation of CF regarding fatigue and performing of highly technical lifts that should only rely on the ATP-PCr system.

    You could make a valid point by addressing the criticisms within the CF paradigm particularly the inexplicable usage of high-power, high-technique lifts (e.g. Oly lifts, plyos) for time instead of using them for their intended purposes. Or how about their horrible imbalance of internal:external rotators and vertical/horizontal flexion:extension?

    No I do agree the Oly lifts are dangerous when done by somebody who doesn't know what they are doing, but anyone can and should scale weight to what they can mange safely and more importantly learn how to perform them first

    I'm so sure that CF takes the necessary time to teach the finer technical points of the Oly lifts (sarcasm). Let's try this again: these lifts are designed to be used solely with the ATP-PCr system and not for time. If you're not intimately familiar with the energy systems and how to apply them, then don't bother responding.

    Here's something interesting. I have brothers in-law (wife's side) that own a crossfit gym. One destroyed both of his shoulders and had to have surgery on both of them. He now works out at life time fitness.The other has "sworn off" overhead lifts because his shoulders are so bad. They have their CrossFit certification though. Its not worth the paper its printed on.

    Crossfit is a trendy way to workout. It gives the fitness industry something to sell. I've done it and found the training (if you can call it that) to be catabolic with no strategic stimulus for growth. This is a bodybuilding forum, so my criticisms are based on its abilities to promote the body in that manner. Jumping up and down on one foot on a bosu ball while doing a curl is a parlor trick and nothing more

    Now, if you were jumping up and down on a bosu ball while doing a curl in the squat rack, that would be epic.

    I reference this picture in my classes to discuss what functional training is, and is not.

    I actually included a picture of it on a pop quiz.

    Is this exercise functional for land-based athletes? Yes/No
