I think yall are just attacking my argument because I used the term crossfit. I guess the more proper term would have been cross training. I could care less where crossfit originated from or whether it is a new idea or not. My point here is that muscle can be gained through crossfit type training if tailored correctly towards your goals. I know crossfit will not create the most muscular body neither the most muscularly balanced physique. The purpose of crossfit is not to stand in front of judges and look incredibly fit. Im not part of the crossfit community but I do a lot of cross training and I vary my workouts continuously. My workouts are usually structured in the following manner: Power, Stregth, Conditioning. Begininng with olympic lifts, then some sort of squat, deadlift, or pressing movement with either weights, sandbags, or sleds, followed by some sort conditioning circuit usually a crossfit WOD. I am currently on a cutting phase but I have done a bulking phase in the past and I did see gains. I also know a few guys who have made pretty decent gain from a crossfit gym. Like I said, maybe not the type of gains you guys are used to with bodybuilding type routines but they were pretty solid gains. The original poster is asking whether it is possible and I'm here to testify that it is.
And yes there are a ton of people following crossfit prototypes who will not see any gains whatsoever and maybe end up injuring themselves but you guys act like everyone who steps into a gym and follows a bodybuilding 5 day split ends up looking like Arnold. In anything you do there will always be the most important factor of all which is your individual drive to succeed. Whether that be aiming for a bodybuilding physique or simply a strong solid more athletic physique. It all depends on your own personal dedication, the intensity of your workouts, and your diet. Eat big, get big.
