I may have hallucinated the thing with Everett although I think he went his own way

Robb Wolff fired from Crossfit

Of course, Crossfit has their own version of the story and it's all a bunch of he-said she-said kind of thing.

Everett is mentioned in the above link which is why his name was in my head.

the emissaries from HQ are interesting:

■None have extensive training experience.
■None have ANY strength and conditioning education outside CrossFit and are largely incapable of articulating any of the nuanced methodology in strength and conditioning.
■None have a background in anatomy, physiology or exercise science. Greg Glassman never had a formal education in this material but has a formidable self taught knowledge. For the most part, the HQ staff does not reflect this knowledge base, and this in not only a “fitness” company but a “fitness juggernaut”.

From the article Lyle linked to. Wow.

Ain't no money in paleo compared to zone.
Or was it because Sears offered a cut into his sales..hmm
The supposed "open source" model isn't open source unless it pays tribute to the HQ bank.

to become a "crossfit certified" trainer, all you have to do is pay $1000 and show up at a cert. Seriously. There isn't even a test.

If you train the WODs hard, and eat right and get lots of sleep, you will definitely gain lean mass, lose fat, and yes, you can build muscle mass with the crossfit protocol. More specifically, according to Coach,
Here is a hierarchy of training for mass from greater to lesser efficacy:
1. Bodybuilding on steroids
2. CrossFitting on steroids
3. CrossFitting without steroids
4. Bodybuilding without steroids
The bodybuilding model is designed around, requires, steroids for significant hypertrophy.
The neuroendocrine response of bodybuilding protocols is so blunted that without "exogenous hormonal therapy" little happens.
The CrossFit protocol is designed to elicit a substantial neuroendocrine whollop and hence packs an anabolic punch that puts on impressive amounts of muscle though that is not our concern. Strength is.
Natural bodybuilders (the natural ones that are not on steroids) never approach the mass that our ahtletes do. They don't come close.
Those athletes who train for function end up with better form than those who value form over function. This is one of the beautiful ironies of training.
Does anyone else find the Rippetoe quote "You can't make people smarter, you can expose them to information but your responsibility stops there" terribly ironic here? A straight out lie, an incorrect preconcieved notion and a typo all in the same sentence.

The crossfit boards are peopled with weekend warriors who think they're better athletes than professionals because "Terrell Owens couldnt win the xfit games"

it's beyond absurd

It gets even better when Glassman starts telling someone like Nate Morrison how to best train soldiers.
