Your putting words into my mouth. I said that some of the crossfit competitors that I've seen train, do a lot of bodybuilding type accessory movements. I've been to two different crossfit facilities in the area when my wife was looking to join, and neither had any heavy dumbells or even a flat bench, so don't tell me they do that stuff as part of a normal routine. To me, crossfit is GPP & calistenics. We did shit like that during football off season to get into shape, in between heavy lifting sessions.
