A buddy of mine does it at the Kern Center on weekends. Says he likes it so far, but it's not quite to the intensity level that it is for a hardcore cross-fitter.

I've never tried it personally, but I don't know if I have any desire to. You're training with no real goal other than to finish as many reps/circuits as possible in the allotted time. So in a sense you're competing against yourself everytime.

The problems I've heard is that it involves a lot of complex movements such as snatches/cleans, and combination powerlifts that most people haven't been trained to do. So you get a lot of injuries from inexperience. Also, I've heard that just the overrall intensity leads to quite a bit of injuries. You're basically just beating the hell out of your body for 30 minutes doing extremely challenging lifts/circuits that most people have never even heard of before, let alone actually tried of. This probably doesn't make for the best outcome. But to each their own.

I have a lot of experience when it comes to training/working out and I'm always up for new workouts, so I wouldn't be opposed to trying a few sessions myself. That said, as a result of my past athletic career, workouts, training, etc. my body is starting to feel the effects of all the wear and tear. So from that aspect I don't know that it's worth the added punishment to my body.

ask the University Of Iowa football players who participated in this form of conditioning how they feel about it. It is a sound form of training as long as you do not go USMC drill instructor gonzo.

I don't think they post here.

Just sayin'...
