    Bodyweight bench press - max reps
    Pull ups - max reps
    5 rounds
    score is total reps

    Thats a good one i reckon.Could be done every time we have a deload week after retesting the big 3 or 4 lifts. Either one or both of thise WODS make great benchmark tests.

    Do people who do crossfit have more brain cells or less?

    Originally crossfit was focused on doing a limited amount of exercises moving from one to the next very quickly
    squats
    deads
    high pulls
    chins
    farmers walks
    dips
    turkish get ups and so on...

    metabolic conditioning was the goal the term originally came from Arthur Jones in the mid 70ís
    the differences were the execution of the movements and the safety of the environment.

    to make more money Crossfit became a sport and thatís were it went downhill fast

    It kind of is like how i train atm, i do massive giants sets but i have to stop for 30-60 seconds sometimes to catch my breath until i have enough oxygen that i can mentally do the next exercise. Still new to me all this type of training, but so far so good! Gone are my days of splits, i'm almost certain.

    Can the two co-exist? Can we combine the two modalities?

    Being stronger for crossfit is never a bad thing, being fitter for powerlifting also never a bad thing.

    Thoughts?

    Of course they can co exist. Wethere itís the ideal thing to do depends on your goals. Itís most likely not.
