Polquin speaks about crossfit

Polquin made his feelings quite clear about cross fit in a recent t-nation article;
Q: What do you think of that Crossfit stuff?
A: I have no clue what the hell that is. Is that one of those systems that’s a mish-mash of everything?
Wait, I saw on article on that in Muscle & Fatness. Looked like a bunch of cachexic fitness-model wannabes searching for their souls in the weight room.
It reminds me of a Hungarian proverb: “If you only have one ass, you can’t sit on two horses.” If you try to do everything in your workout, you get nothing.
Another way to look at it is to think of Tim Ferris’s example of wearing your underwear over your pants. It’s different, and maybe even fun for some people, but it’s not very effective.
No athlete has ever gotten good training like that.
