    Good article. But, like the researcher said, there needs to be more research done before we can accurately use these benchmarks to predict future health. This is still early research, taken with a grain of salt. I doubt they have tracked people for forty years to see if they accurately predicted the participant’s longevity and heart health for their later life, at least not yet. But, its nice to see that at least there is realization that simply being “thin/not fat” is not equivalent to being “fit/healthy.”
    And, I AM PSYCHED TO RUN! (…not)

    The two papers referenced in this article provide evidence that Crossfit is correct: the faster you can do a given bit of work, i.e. the more power you can produce, the better.
