Coach Andrew isn't alone in having to endure hearing this absurdity.
We've all had to defend this annoying claim.
Yes, you can get hurt doing CrossFit.
You can also get hurt playing football, playing ping-pong, getting out of bed or walking down your driveway.
My point: CrossFit doesn't cause injuries. Bad form causes injuries.
Being unaware of your surroundings causes injuries.
Not listening to your coach causes injuries. In short, if you make smart choices, most injuries in any situation can be avoided.
