  1. Crossfit?? Wtf


    CROSSFIT I keep hearing about it, and suppose to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. I have never heard anything about it, maybe being in the close knit powerlifter trib I am in, we dont pay attention to these new, all the rage "fit" routines. But well at Recruit training I heard this is what the Marine Corps is going to. Also from what I hear this is what SF use, dont know how true that is, just something i have heard. ANyone know anything about this, or have you used it?


  2. Its all the rage with the general public right now. A lot of functional type movements.

    There is a new workout posted everyday on: www.crossfit.com

    I watched some of the vids one day. No idea if its even a progression type deal. Looks similar to PX90 or whatever that is, but I'm not certain.

  3. Btw being a certified "crossfit" trainer is bringing in tons of clients to gyms in my area...

  4. I would do it but it requries a bunch of equipment that I don't want to spend for.

  5. i have been doing crossfit for about a month and probably in overall better shape i have ever been in. the workouts are pretty short but very intense. the workouts change all the time and most of it is functional. i was skeptical at first , but after one workout i was hooked.

    Do you like not knowing what your workout is going to be until the day it is posted? Or is it posted earlier somewhere?

  7. i actually joined a crossfit gym. We have a trainer that makes up our workout and trains about 5 of us at a time. we really dont follow the workout of the day. you can make up your own, which is what most people do. but no you wont be able to find out what the workout is until that same day. its not your typical bodybuilding training. all i can say is give it a shot but would recommend going to a crossfit gym at first though. the intensity of these workouts are insane.

    Yes the Marine Corps is now using it, a lot of SEAL candidates are using the "WOD" along with the BUD/S warning order to prepare for BUD/S.

    There's been criticism against it because it's "dangerous"...

    Look at the average American, lazy, fat and not in shape cardiovascularly, no muscle endurance, etc...

    You take someone like that and put them in a crossfit program, injuries will happen, take that same person put him on a beginner level calisthenics program, add low intensity cardio, replace with HIT 20-30 minutes eventually, add some weights, for 2-3 months AND then, introduce them to crossfit, and that same person will benefit greatly.

    Crossfit is a great workout, however I don't follow any WOD, I formulate my own plan two workouts everyday, similar to crossfit before I ever heard it of it, except I use no weights or machines, just a pull up/dip station.

    It's not the "Answer to everything" and it's not for everyone but it benefits greatly those who want or need this kind of workout.

    I would do it but it requries a bunch of equipment that I don't want to spend for.
    You can alternate some exercises and still get the benefit of crossfit, if you wanna do it, post a few sample workouts and what equipment you don't have and I'll post an alternate but similar routine, I almost use no equipment whatsoever, mainly calisthenics.

    A weight vest that goes up to 120lbs is VERY helpful.

    Do you like not knowing what your workout is going to be until the day it is posted? Or is it posted earlier somewhere?
    You can skip a day, ie: on the 26th, do the workout posted on the 24th and on the 27th do the workout posted on the 25th, on the 28th do the workout posted on the 26th, etc..... that way, you'll never have to wait until someone posts it and if your internet is down for a couple of days you don't miss your workout.

    i have been doing crossfit for about a month and probably in overall better shape i have ever been in. the workouts are pretty short but very intense. the workouts change all the time and most of it is functional. i was skeptical at first , but after one workout i was hooked.
    Circuit calisthenics with weight vests and high reps are similar to crossfit, I tried both and still "seperate" them, I'll do a high rep intense calisthenics workout, followed by HIT or low intensity cardio and stopping sometimes to do some more calisthenics, different that crossfit principles but it's a killer workout, some days I'll do crossfit to change the pace to keep things interesting.

  9. I have been looking into crossfit, I just watched a video of a crossfit gym in ohio.

    they didnt stop moving, went from body slamming, to rope climbing, to all kinds of good stuff.....

  10. Going from Powerlifting to Crossfit would cause extreme withdraw symptoms. I highly recommended weaning yourself off of the good stuff (powerlifting) and then experimenting with crossfit.

  11. I love Crossfit! However with that in mind I don't "BB" I exercise for functional strength being that I'm in the military and my goals and needs are different than those of BB'rs. i.e. in Iraq doing my medical thing under fire I am not likely going to need to biceps curl anything, I will however need to get down, get up, climb over things run a whole lot and all with all my gear on.

    lol, good point man.

    This is something that looks like it could actually be a way to constantly improve every aspect of your physic and mentality. I found a local gym that looks promising, not sure yet though, dont have time or money atm.

  18. hop fences and climb tees-crossfit

  19. My squad does it for pt about once a week. Usually on fridays. Truck pulling, flipping tractor tires, running with logs, pull-ups, dips, sprints, kettle bells and DBs...All that fun stuff

    Mark twight the guy who owns Gym Jones and is responsible for all the 300 guys uses a system based on Crossfit (he just tailored it to each of the individuals specifically and turned up the notch) He also trains professional/world class athletes, olympians, mountain climbers etc. So you can get out of it what ever you need or want.

  22. I am so sick of hearing about F'ing crossfit. I swear if I have to wait for another tard doing a set of 30 on deadlifts, there will be blood. You want to get in shape? Well, then go join an MMA gym, but don't forget to add in some heavy ass weight training as well.

  23. There are all kinds of ways to get in shape. It just depends on what your goals are and what excites you.

  24. crossfit is pretty good. i just finished my academy and the PT instructors implemented crossfit routines every so often (usually once or twice per week). i really liked it, but i haven't continued it on my own will. it's pretty intense, but you can also cheat yourself. if you go all out on these crossfit workouts, they can be very tough.

    Yup. Its garbage. Lift some heavy ass weight and do some goddamn cardio. O how I miss watchin the tards doing 30 rep deadlifts followed by a quick set of shoulder dislocating/bouncing/assisted pullups.
