Show Notes

Perhaps the better question is, would I trust my health and safety to any randomly chosen individual simply because that person was CrossFit certified? Absolutely not. We were never formally tested in any of the lifts we learned, and everybody passed. This is a sharp contrast to my experience in Poliquin’s course, where attendees would fail for simply forgetting to have their wrists cocked back in the preacher curl.
