    Crossfitters??


    Any crossfitters?? I'm goin to give crossfit a try and was wondering if anyone had any good workouts for me? And also when a routine for example tells u deadlifts( 1.5 body weight) does that men 1.5 x your body or what? That seems a bit much for a circuit? Help and advice please

    Download iwodfitness app and icross wod app. Gives you different wods everyday and you can scroll through library's of old workouts. Really helpful and yes 1.5 means 1 and a half but you can scale it back

    Yeah but if I see someone post about any stupid workout, crossfit or not, I'm not going to hold back my opinion. Im not 'hating',I honestly hope he takes the advice given in that link for his sake, not JUST because I hate crossfit.

    Why even acknowledge that Sean?

    He basically just said that one can't share their opinion on here if they have a differing opinion than him (and whomever he deems to be quality posters) or they are just hating.

    He is also the poster that said that "everyone on this board should want to look better." Which is cool because apparently there are no other lifters on these boards than those who enjoy bodybuilding.

    If that is someone's opinion on crossfit then why is there no need for that persons opinion but there is a need for your opinion?

    You are better than everyone else on the board?

    I understand not being an a$$hole about crossfit. But if someone started a thread saying they want to work out 3x a day 7 days a week am I supposed to let that slide? Maybe it's a new workout trend...I wouldn't want to offend them by saying its a bad idea!.

    I have done it (still do sometimes)

    The intensity is high (why he would call it the best workout, because its difficult). But the programming is poor, delts are incredibly overworked leading to postural imbalance, and high rep olympic lifts are stupid.

    Crossfit = RC issues, knee problems, and the possibility for more.

    OP, to answer your question 1.5 x bodyweight seems excessive. Heck, even 1x bodyweight combined with the other high intensity exercises (running in between) can pose a big risk, especially if you don't have a bit of dead lift experience under your belt. I don't do cross fit type classes or training but would suggest starting much lighter. You don't want to dead lift so fatigued that you get injured.

    And I don't hate on people for doing crossfit. It's better than sitting on the couch and they are attempting to better their lives. Props to them. I just think there are better, safer, ways

    i agree and those are reasons why i don't suggest it or do it myself

    but hey, if ppl have fun doing it and get the results they desire, then good for them....they could always be at home eating roman noodles doing nothing

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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"

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