    I’m re-posting this since it was so late yesterday when I got on. It is a response to “CrossFit Atlanta” defending the recent decision not to post a WOD because some people were missing classes on days that included difficult workouts.
    “I don’t know what to make of this myself. I *only* come in based on the WOD, because $20 is a lot to shell out for a poor man, and I want to make sure that I come in and do something that I can’t do elsewhere. If the posted WOD is Cindy, there is no way in hell I would come in. But something that requires dropping heavy weights and a qualified CFL2 instructor? Yeah, I’m likely to come in and get some instruction.
    “The fact is that the particular WOD in question prescribed things that a LOT of folks simply cannot do. I can barely hold a hand stand a few seconds. I certainly cannot walk 20 metres on one. How do you scale that anyway?
    “Finally, it needs also to be stated that the CrossFit WODs are insufficient for most people to gain and/or maintain needed strength levels. Nobody, I repeat, NOBODY, who is competing at the CrossFit Games follows the main site WODs for their strength training. They all have their own supplemental strength programming on the side. A 20-round Cindy is meaningless if you can’t deadlift 400 lbs. Which is why I don’t give a crap about my half-way decent Cindy and why I do care that my deadlift is barely over 300.”

    Dave: I’m trying to remember the last time you did in fact come in? 😉
