BTW, using the search function finds a lot of good arguements for it.

The only real issue I've heard anyone have with it is tracking results because by either following the WOD or your own concoction, you're gonna have a quite a while in between duplicate workouts."Keep a sharp knife, shiny boots and be on time."

Lack of specificity, periodization focused on individual training needs, specific reasoning behind each exercise and a lack of focus upon the utilization of specific metabolic pathways for the end goals. Those are some reasons. Go ask a personal trainer who's worth their salt.

Isn't that a sort of argument for almost any programme which isn't specifically tailored to an individual by an expert (or somebody who's getting close to it after years of reading around the subject and experimenting) ? or is there something particularly bad about crossfit ?
I mean if I look at any programme on the web, it's not geared specifically to me, but it might be a good place to start.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!

Try telling one you need to have full body cardio (not just the ability to run) and the ability to move explosively in any direction, from any position, and with any limb and see the blank stares or crap they make up. But crossfit will help you meet this goal very nicely.

Therefore, you are guilty of bullshido. You make wild claims without backing the **** up. Could be something in the chemicals you're ingesting.
My guess is that you can't hang with the WOD, and therefore say it's crap.
I can't hang with 2 out of 3 workouts, and those I can, usually leave me gassed. It's quite fun actually.

Try again. You do realize that the heart is a muscle. For intended strength gains, etc. There are two ways to do such, that is hypertrophy and CNS adaptation.
Making the heart hypertrophy does what...?
Also does your body serve your heart, or the other way around..?
