Another comment on cross fit and why speed strength is not really being developed is because they are not recruiting as much muscle fibers or exploding into the weight as a properly trained Olympic lifter, Powerlifter(raw)or Strongman would. Now just to re-comment, I think cross fit style movements are fine for conditioning for mixed martial arts, sports or the 3 disciplines of competition mentioned above, I just don't believe it to be as legitimate as the other 3 mentioned.

The complex in the video would be a lot more harder if it was a clean front squat push press (thruster or w.e its called) to count as each rep to hit instead of 150 total reps divide it by 3 for each movement and lets say 50 sets of those 3 movements back to back or every 15-20 compile it with pull ups because the person would have to recruit more muscles and exert more force, which would leader to more practical strength, better technique, which leads to preventing imbalances, increasing strength as well and ultimately preventing injury while promoting efficient movement.
