179: How Common are Injuries in CrossFit?
Posted by John Bosse on
With the explosion of CrossFit these days there has been a backlash of people swearing up and down that it leads to lots of injuries and has people who are not yet fit enough to be doing its movememnts jumping head first into training sure to lead to injury. Still others say even if that were true that’s a lot better than all the people who are getting started sitting around and being inactive. Is there any research to show that either camp is right? We review a study on the frequency of Crossfit injuries today and hope to get to the bottom of this debate. John always reviews the full text of every article, but to see the abstract of the study discussed, click here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24276294
