  3. 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.

    This is a recipe for disaster.

  8. 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

    I don't think that anyone is claiming that it was.
