Doing crossfit is like riding a motorcycle.. It's not a question of if, but rather when, you will get hurt. My wife and her entire immediate family all work as doctors or PT's and have seen many patients on both sides with CF injuries.

Also, it really isn't sustainable as a routine for any period of time. How are you going to Crossfit when you're 55? Don't think you are going to be doing snatches and muscle ups at that age, or really past 30.

Here's some good insight on how a CF "trainer" becomes certified: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...up_by_crossfit

Here's a good article on high rep Olympic lifting (basically the foundation of many CF WODs): http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...lympic_lifting


Oh, and not to be on topic or anything, but the dumbbells at my gym (LA Fitness) only go up to 125.
