Constantly Varied

The mainsite workout for May 24, 2011 includes swimming.  On July 4, 2010 it was a 30k cycling time trial.  There is now a CrossFit Striking cert.  These are all functional movements that are not typical of what comes to mind when we think about exercises associated with CrossFit.  It just goes to show that the movements that can be incorporated into the program are only limited by what our bodies can do.  As long as it makes us more functional, capable beings, we want it in there.  I know we have a couple of coaches that would love to see throwing in the mix, and I think adding rock climbing or bouldering would be fantastic.  What movements or exercises would you like to see as part of a CrossFit workout?

    30 deadlifts at 125kg was plenty. I did not want to lift that bar anymore.
