About two months ago, my doctor took away my "injury card" and told me I could start working out with the provision that I not do anything stupid. So far, I have succeeded in not doing something that would undo 6-months of recovery and rehab - I'll keep trying though. Just kidding! One thing that I've taken away from this experience is the importance of quality of movement versus quantity of movement.
CrossFit workouts are heavily dependent on the clock and people are very competitive once it starts ticking. As the minutes and seconds pass, should you turn into the Tasmanian Devil? The answer depends on context, in my opinion. There's a big difference between training and competing. Most of what we do is training, every once in awhile, we compete. During training movement should be practiced with the aim to improve and perfect. During competition, you hit the throttle and let your fitness rip.
The point I want to make is that one precedes the other. Training first. Competition second. Neither of these modes is an invitation to be all willy-nilly in the gym. Unless you stand to get paid a lot of money to work out, which none of us do, the focus should be quality of movement not the quantity of movement. #safetyfirst
