Crossfitters??

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. One of my friends runs a Crossfit place out here. He's big into it and in great shape but I don't see the attraction. If I wanna lift weights I lift weights , if I wanna do cardio I run, if I wanna run an obstacle course ill do that , or ride a bike etc. I like the basics and fads bore me.

  3. I've been doing Crossfit since 2006. Off and on, as I tend to get a little board after awhile of anything, but pretty regularly none the less. I have never had an injury related to Crossfit. I do scale as needed, and took the time to be taught and become fairly proficeint at the various lifts. Ok Ok, so I'm still working ont he snatch and over head squat lol. I have no issues with it as long as there is good coaching. For me, I can say that it ws instrumental for me physically for my career and making it through 18 months of grueling training and to continue to be mission ready.

    I like kipping pull ups, and do them, but I agree a begginer shouldn't do them until they are proficient at dead hangs. There does need to be a level of strength and skill attained. I don't look at kipping pull ups as cheating. i look at them as a similar, but different exercise. Much in the likes of how the push press and shoulder press are similar, but different exercises.

  5. It's on of those things where people do what they like. Crossfit gyms have that competitive atmosphere people like that, and getting people to do Olympic lifts instead of curling in the squat rack is a good thing.

    Meh, not so much. Getting people who are fatigued to do high rep oly lifts with crappy form is never a good thing...unless you're an ortho surgeon...

  7. lol define good. one is annoying to watch, but mostly harmless. the other is fun to watch cuz the newbs end up fukin their shyt up

  8. Well there's training couches in place to correct ill form or teach it in the first place as well as possible weight adjustment to keep for practical and ultimately personal safety is of the individuals personal concern, nothing wrong with inventing something new at one point the only way to get big was to just eat chicken breast and broccoli

    You're assuming the coaches know what correct form is. I don't think I'd make that assumption...

    If the coach is endorsing using high-rep Oly lifts, then he/she does not deserve that distinction. Just as you cannot sprint a mile, you cannot perform lifts based upon power and technique while fatigued.

    He's also assuming that everyone who does crossfit does it in a crossfit gym with "coaches"

  13. To each there own gentlemen, it works for people as well as conventional training and risk and reward should be assessed for each individual

  14. Didn't the marines get rid of kipping in PT because of the related shoulder injuries?

    I agree, the only problem is that most people don't know the risks.

  16. I'm not sure as to the marines Kipling in PT tests I was in the army, but I could see that happening

    They do not kip in PT tests. Just dead hangs. Kipping went away decades ago.
