Trainerbot is trying to kill me!
Is it really such a great idea to repost workouts form a website whose excersizes almost all require supervision and coaching? I can't even begin to imagine what would happen to someone who just up and decided to try power cleans without a trainer teaching them the movement.

Haha, it's just a dolled-up RSS feed from Crossfit's site. Find a better "Workout of the Day" feed (RSS) and we'll use that or add it.

Done. Here's the curvy girl workout. http://feeds.feedburner.com/CurvyGirls
Guaranteed to not cause knee stress, joint stress, muscle stress, or fitness.
Alternately could you have the bot post a new daily sticky "advanced daily workouts by crossfit" or whatever?
that would kill the multiple threads (my pet peeve) and prevent all but the stupidest out-of-shape people from trying them.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

It depends really... often they have a lot of "bodyweight for time" stuff, or running - they seem to go in phases. Right now seems to be the 10k run season.
Every so often they post something that nobody has a hope in hell of doing (100 muscle ups or ring dips for example) but for the most part I think their workouts are ok.
Most of us probably do some variation on olympic movements already anyway!

Today was the 2nd 10K this week I think... WTH! There's no way in god's semi-green earth that I'm running 6.21 twice in one week.

One is to hope such a person would see the clip and has the sense to ask questions in the forum where suggestions will be made. Then after some deliverations, the aforementioned person would take the plain barbell to get the movement and technique right and gradually increase the load according to his level of fitness, as opposed to trying to poweclean his own bodyweight.
I like these RSS feeds because, even when they show an exercise that is beyond my reach, I can see the Q&As and associated exercises, some of which may be a better fit for me.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
