Age in CrossFit is an interesting conversation.  We see MANY "youngstars" come in the gym and want to throw around tons of weight, or do the workouts as prescribed, etc.  Then we see MANY "oldstars" coming in and feeling like they don't want to touch an ounce of weight.  Now, we all know that "back when I was younger..." we all could do so much more.  What I have seen is that for the most part, the young ones can do more because they just haven't hurt themselves yet.  They don't have the scare tissue built up to really restrict the movements and they have too much pride and cockiness.  The older folks have had years of injuries, years of moving incorrectly, and usually just hurt doing nothing and really limit themselves so they dont get hurt again or worse.  So whats the answer for both age groups?  Learn the correct movements!!  Learning the movements correctly will help to regain flexibility and strength in those end reaches of those functional movements that have been lost.  And it will teach muscle memory so that you will move correctly, even when you are tired, so that you don't injure yourself and cause future problems.  If you mix a good coach (which is what we have here at the INFERNO) with athletes that want to be the best human they can be (which is what we also have here at the INFERNO), then you basically get a "Fountain of Youth"!  And who wouldn't want to sip off of that Kool-Aid?!
