Milk n squat boys... Milk n squats
Or does that not work either. According my gravitationally challenged acquaintances.
Does that work Rodja, or does it not meet your "energy requirements."
CF is for those that think they know about training. And also those who enjoy being injured. Those that do know about training stay as far away from it as humanly possible.
Lol thanks everyone,
Man, look at all the haters!! I figured a place like this may have a few more open minds, but screw it, I'll be the lone Crossfitter here. CF, although I do not agree with 100% of what we do, is NOT garbage, I don't care what these other Internet smart guys say! I have been doing CF for 2 years now, know how many injuries I've had....zero, zip, none, nada!! In fact, most injuries I've seen have come from dudes missing the box on box jumps. Now, it's far from a perfect system, I'll admit it, and I'm not a huge fan of Oly lifts at high reps, BUT....most of the time it's at a pretty light weight, and one that's catered for the lifter. Ex: today we did a 2 min, max rep for time with 95 pound power snatches, and plenty of dudes used only 75 to get comfortable with the movement. Beyond the Oly lifts, CF is great for someone who wants to mix up workouts. We do tons on kettlebell work, wall balls, pull ups, push ups, sit-ups, muscle ups, running, you name it, we do it!
But hey, if you wanna be one of those guys who just really wants to get good at moving weight while laying on your back, or have a mean bicep curl, be my guest!
Can't wait to see the response to this one!!!
Admittedly, I'm not a crossfit expert but what exactly is the goal and in what time frame?
See...CF can be totally tailored to what ever your goals are. Some guys at my gym are almost strictly power lifter, some are more cardio based, while others, like myself, enjoy trying it all.
Although, my opinion, is its not putting its stamp on "all of weight lifting" but it definitely incorporates just about any and every aspect of fitness.

The above article is crap!! Ok, so there are videos of people doing really sh*tty lifts at a CF gym. Now go back on you tube and search for any other type of gym failures and you will see plenty of non CF dumb asses as well, even with their "trainers"! The article also says that everyone uses the same load....false, not true, it is all scalable to ones ability. The writer of this article is obviously clueless or just went and saw a really crappy gym
I can tell you two essential portions of fitness that are missing: maximal strength development and maximal force production aka the dynamic effort. That and there is a huge imbalance in the volume of vertical flexion:extension compared to horizontal flexion:extension.
Does your crossfit gym include:
Pre-screening for limitation and athletic ability
Sound, balanced, individualized Programing with progressions, done in a timely manner for each individual, in complexity, relative intensity, energy systems, goals, periodization, etc. the essence of the WOD seems to remove these variables to a degree.
What would you say is the percentage of people that actually have the GPP to get through a crossfit workout and do it the way it was designed safely? Is that GPP even achievable through crossfit program design? If the answer is yes, is the exercise that is utilized to achieve the necessary GPP even crossfit or is it just labeled as such because it is done in a crossfit facility.
There's minimal instruction from crossfit WOD's that I've seen at multiple gyms. I remember once seeing a group of 10 people, all varying sizes and experience. The instructor put 225lbs on to deadlift for one of the multiple, fast paced exercises. Regardless of the persons size, strength, experience, technique-They all were required to pull 225. 95% of them did it as a SLDL with a rounded back. I've seen similar scenarios like this multiple time.
