Default Re: Cross-Fit's new...draw?

Cock pushups would really only be feasible at home or this all nude gym.


Also, some guys really have a leg up on the competition, as they don't have as far to push up...

Or get a brain and go buy some gloves, Crossfit is great for athletes as it keeps the muscles guessing, football Crossfit is used by almost every team in the country in one way or another!

Yeah your right, due to the idiots in a "nude" Crossfit video not being great trainers all Crossfit trainers must suck, were they black or white so we can generalize them from this video as well....

If SSO hasn't acknowledged being wrong in the countless other instances on this board, then he certainly isn't going to stop now.

Dude has a reputation for being one of the most obtuse posters ever on this board. No one likes him.

The endurance athlete has trained long past any cardiovascular health benefit and has lost ground in strength, speed, and power, typically does nothing for coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy and possesses little more than average flexibility. This is hardly the stuff of elite athleticism. The CrossFit athlete, remember, has trained and practiced for optimal physical competence in all ten physical skills (cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, flexibility, strength, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy). The excessive aerobic volume of the endurance athlete’s training has cost him in speed, power, and strength to the point where his athletic competency has been compromised. No triathlete is in ideal shape to wrestle, box, pole-vault, sprint, play any ball sport, fight fires, or do police work. Each of these requires a fitness level far beyond the needs of the endurance athlete. None of this suggests that being a marathoner, triathlete or other endurance athlete is a bad thing; just don’t believe that training as a long distance athlete gives you the fitness that is prerequisite to many sports. CrossFit considers the Sumo Wrestler, triathlete, marathoner, and power-lifter to be “fringe athletes” in that their fitness demands are so specialized as to be inconsistent with the adaptations that give maximum competency at all physical challenges. Elite strength and conditioning is a compromise between each of the ten physical adaptations. Endurance athletes do not balance that compromise.

Crossfit: Over-training professional non-atheletes with Olympic weightlifting techniques while utilizing zero specificity and pure negligence of the local core stabilizers & rotator cuff.

There is brilliant marketing behind this company though. If you sucked complete ass at sports your whole life, you get a chance to redeem yourself at Crossfit.

Since I excelled at sports my whole life, am I doing CrossFit in vain? I gotta know!

Solid point. Being a "jack of all trades" is a shitty way to live. At 35 I often wish I could specialize more since that's def what LIFE calls for. Again, solid point.

I would argue that life calls for you to specialize in at least a few things, be pretty average at most things, and you'll be perfectly happy being completely incapable of others.

I would also argue that somebody who runs marathons or power lifts/body builds is at least equally as capable of meeting the physical challenges one typically expects to face in life as someone that does cross fit.

OK, lets argue. I can easily out-lift most runners and definitely outrun most lifters. Did you not read the post on "fringe athletes"? Do you think a marathoner or powerlifter is truly adept at other modalities such as: flexibility, coordination, power, etc.? Really? Life calls for pointless long runs? No, life calls for short burst in the form of sprints if its running we're talking about. Powerlifters - yep lifting a ton....other than other powerlifters nobody cares. A better gauge of life and overall fitness is can you lift something and carry it over a long distance. The faster you can do that is the better indicator of your fitness level, not the two (lift or run) separately.

I don't think this argument is going to work, because you aren't rational.

For further argument's sake - what do you do as far as a fitness regimen?

There are certainly many that give Crossfit a bad name, but in my experience, I have never seen anyone injured or displeased at the results they've seen since starting. Some of you pretend experts are speaking out of your ass for some reason, and it is painfully obvious.

I would never argue that you couldn't outrun a lifter or out lift a runner. Not knowing anything about your actual fitness level, I can only assume that if you are doing something more than somebody else you are (probably) better at it than them. The lifter doesn't care that you can out run him and the runner doesn't care that you can out lift him. What's an example of a typical life scenario involving lifting something and carrying it over a long distance that you don't feel a long distance runner or a power lifter/body builder can do, and that somebody who does cross fit is more capable of?

I don't think that specialists are adept at everything. Depending on what level you believe somebody has to reach to be "adept" at something I would say that somebody who does cross fit isn't really adept at anything. The specialists are the ones that are adept at things. Somebody who splits their time trying to be good at everything ends up only being kind of good at any of them. Synonyms for adept on google include: expert, masterful, virtuoso. I think of virtuoso as somewhat of a musical term, and the virtuosos are the ones that devote their lives to mastering one instrument, not the guy at church that's pretty good at guitar, piano, sax, trumpet, drums, and can sing a little bit.

I also think that's an interesting way to say fitness must be determined. "Can you lift something and carry it over a long distance?" Well, what are we lifting and how far is "a long distance?" Who gets to decide what the distance and weight is? I mean if you pick something heavy enough the power lifter will be the most fit no matter the distance because the other guys can't even pick it up. If you pick something light and make the distance far enough the distance runner is probably going to win.

I'm not rational? I'd be curious to see you point out something I've said in this thread that is irrational. I'm also not really sure why you are questioning whether or not I read the post on fringe athletes or why you keep explaining that people who specialize aren't great at everything. That's what it means to specialize. Your primary care doctor is a Jack of All trades. He/she can handle any routine thing that isn't too serious. When you have a brain tumor he sends you to a specialist. That specialist isn't the same guy you want to go see when you tear the ligaments in your knee and you need them surgically repaired. You also don't want your primary care doctor cutting your knee open and trying to put things back together.

I generally lift 5 times a week. Typical leg day, back day, chest day, shoulder day, arm day. Generally after I lift I try to walk on an incline on the treadmill for 10-15 minutes just to burn a few extra calories and get my heart rate up for a little bit. Depending on how my weekends go I usually try to get in to do abs and a little extended cardio. Still nothing super intense on the cardio though. Trying to bulk up. Also typing this out makes me realize I've really been slacking on the abs. I need to make that more of a priority. I'm happy to report that without Cross Fit I am able to meet all of life's daily physical demands.
