My friend at CrossFit Bingo posted this article and it is a big deal.
"While the NSCA’s confession is a first step, it still propagates at least two falsehoods:.
Falsehood 1: Subjects Got Hurt Doing CrossFit Training.
Falsehood 2: The NSCA’s Correction Does Not Affect the Overall Conclusion of the Article
The last line of NSCA’s erratum appears to play down the significance of the correction by claiming it “does not affect the overall conclusion of the article.”
As CrossFit CEO and Founder Greg Glassman has said, this “is an obvious lie.” Injury is not a passing line in the Devor study; it motivates an entire paragraph in the Discussion section, cited above, in which the authors editorialize on the significance of the unsubstantiated injury rate.
The paragraph claims that injury is a “unique” concern with this style of training. The claim was baseless when the article was published, and it’s even less true now."
