Training for 300

I told some of you about the training for the movie '300' conducted by Gym Jones, and here, finally, is the video clip from youtube, Those of you who have trained with me will recognize some of these tactics. All whole body, very functional movements that develop the unit as a whole.
Now on to the controversy! Mark Twight runs gym jones and has been called out by Crossfit founder Greg Glassman for essentially stealing their intellectual property. As much as I like what Mr. Twight and Gym Jones have done it seems like they're nailed dead to rights. Not that the crossfit concept has never appeared before in one form or another, but Coach Glassman is the one who caused it to coalesce into something usable by the masses.
Still, the training video is cool.
