Have to comment that while I working out, I saw Crossfit at its best/worst.  Strong young Marines just butchering box jumps and cleans and that windshield wiper move.  Just a shame.  These guys I couldn’t approach as I usually feel confident enough to go over to guys, young and old and ask for a change or two in form.  These guys were just too much.  It really was shameful.
And keep in mind, I am not offended by using weighted implements for metabolic training.  I am offended by quantity over quality, and the bravado that you’re a bitch if you can’t finish a workout or do it a certain weight.  I really think Crossfit isn’t taught like that.  I really believe that.  But it wasn’t practice like that from what I saw today.

Charlie, I know whay you mean talk to them everyday, quantity is their only objective, I have been able to get some to adhere to proper form but not when they are with peers or feel pressured to complete specific numbers. I will keep working at it.
