CrossFit isn’t just about strength, but strength is certainly part of the program. In the Level 2 cert Coach Steph & I took, we were going over heavy days & set, rep schemes, warm ups and an of outline different ways to fit strength training into your programming. For instance, CFI has had a lot of endurance-oriented athletes, so introducing this concept of lifting heavy, wasn’t always the easiest to introduce. But once they saw how affective it can be and how it can increase strength it has become more accepted even some people crave these days. Putting heavy load on the skeletal structure once and a while is needed.
It’s also important to remember that strength training should show up regularly ( in a met-con), but it will not be at the expense of the other aspects of fitness. Strength is important, but it’s just one aspect of a GPP program.
