How far has CrossFit come?

This video is amazing…amazing in that it shows how far CrossFit has come in just four years. Not only are the athletes struggling – STRUGGLING – with muscle-ups and what is considered a light snatch these days, but the announcers are even struggling calling the “squat snatch” a “squat clean”.

The muscle-up technique is terrible and I am sure all of these girls can complete Amanda in much less time today simply because they can “squat snatch” (I hate that term because it just a snatch…if I tell you to “snatch” I expect a squat) so much better and link together muscle-ups easily. In fact, here is Camille doing Amanda at the men’s weight just a month ago or so.

And watch the whole thing to watch Jason Khalipa just look awful snatching 135 pounds.

    This is AMAZING! The difference in 4 years is absolutely astonishing. As someone who is less than 1 year into Crossfit I never really watched footage from prior years, let alone 4 years ago. Their improvement and their body compositions are totally transformed!

      It is amazing. Watching the best of the best now you think they have always been that good…they haven’t. Watching them flail on the rings makes me feel a bit better…
