Why are crossfitters ripped?

Programming is another big reason CrossFitters are being hijacked. It's definitely not as random as it was before, especially with the strength part of the WODs. They stay more random in the metcons, but the energy system they are working on is not random at all. The average recreational Crossfitter generally has a good amount of muscle with a low amount of body fat compared to the average person, whereas a professional crossfit athlete has enough muscle to compete with a bodybuilder's physique.

If you place them next to a 93-kg high level USAPL weightlifter (which almost certainly means it's drug-free), almost all elite crossfitters will look small. Before I get chased by a mob of pumped Crossfitters waving Olympic bars and battle ropes, allow this humble peasant to breathe one last time to explain himself - When you work out, you must decide what your personal fitness goal is.
