Crossfit fails are often seen like this. Videos that compile clips of different people (many of whom are not Crossfitters) making unfortunate mistakes.
Freak accidents that are very rare. But the real Crossfit fails are the ones that happen when athletes don’t get the simple things right, and hold back their progress with small errors that could easily be changed.

We all know that good quality nutrition is essential for Crossfit and life. We need the right fuel to power our training, the correct macronutrients for recovery and quality food to keep us fit and healthy for long term health. One of the major problems that is overlooked is simply getting enough.
Many athletes underestimate what they actually need, get wrapped up in eating clean 100% of the time, and as a result don’t eat enough to fuel themselves properly. It’s worth talking to your coach or nutritionist to find out how much you actually need to be eating, so that you avoid this mistake. Check out these articles to learn more:
