What do you think of this crossfit video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BDDyxXyf6UU
A strongman axle press for people who dont even possess a basic mechanical foundation is foolish.
Its the equivalent of giving a first grader an engineers math.
It just wont work.
Just as an example, those people needed to learn the proper deadlift, power clean as well as shoulder press.
Having them do all three explosively with high weight is recipe for danger in the gym as well as terrible learning experiences for future gym use.
