rzrwiresunrise: When CrossFit goes wrong....

I like some of the WODs, they're a nice change up from strength training. But watching some people do O-lifts in a CrossFit class makes me cringe.


What the hell?

sigdiamond2000: When I go at my plyo box hammer and tongs and then rice the sh*t out of some f*cking cauliflower, it's my duty to tell the world about it.


I know this is in English, but it's like a foreign language to me. You might as well be talking about cricket.

inner ted: Rapmaster2000: My wife's friend is into Cross-Fit.  We went to an Indian place and she informed the waiter she was paleo-dieting.  The only thing she could eat was a salad.

was it also a vegetarian restaurant ?


No, but it had something to do with the sauces that all of the meats were in.  There was no tandoori chicken or anything like that.  One of the waiters was a young Indian guy and he knew about the whole thing because he was cross-fitty.  He was like "yeah, not much".

My wife and I tried paleo...its crazy. If I want a damned baked potato or bagel I'm going to eat it.

Unless you have Celiacs it's not the kind of eating that should be taken completely to heart.  Cherry pick the stuff that makes sense to you.  A whole new world of culinary wonders awaits you once you step into the world of eating different.  

Ever roast a head of cauliflower in a spicy yogurt sauce?  Or make your own energy bars using no wheat products at all?

You don't have to go all wonky about it.  Just cut back the processed foods to as little as possible.  Make it yourself from scratch when you can.  It's worth incorporating into your diet.  Just don't be stupid about it.

The best general dieting rule of thumb I got from a paleo blog was to just stick to the edges of a grocery store. Fruits, veggies, meats are all on the outside loop and you can eat pretty much all you want of any of those. Go down the aisles as little as possible, that's where all the canned, boxed, processed shiat is.

For the most part that's right.  The Grade A maple syrup you'll have to brave the center aisles for.

Kubo: Por que tan serioso:  Ha! Well....that took all the wind out of my sail. Well played.


The thing is, I get what you mean. As someone that actually enjoys Crossfit and tries to stay safe doing it, I understand how douchey it sounds for me to sit there and need to lecture on why it's safe, the variation in gym quality, etc. etc. Crossfit really needs some central oversight, so these explanations aren't needed.

(Also so some CF coach doesn't allow one of his athletes to break his spine.)


Here is my version of "crossfit". 10 two foot box jumps, ten pushups, 30 second rest. Repeat five times. Run two miles. Repeat box jump / pushup routine. Or: dead lifts, back and bi followed by 20 minutes on a bike.

Not crossfit, you say? Who cares...it's a good workout and for the most part it's free. Plus I don't ever have to talk to anyone about crossfit. Which used to be cross training (remember when "cross trainers" was a kind of sneaker?) used to be, which is what calisthenics used to be.

tricycleracer: Kubo: Benevolent Misanthrope:
I wasn't drinking enough water and was doing a brutal 5x3x1 rotation at 85/90/85% 1RM 3 days a week, plus a cross-fit-ish routine on alternating days (we called it "functional strength training" in those days - tire flipping, sledgehammering, sandbag hauling, that sort of thing).

OW. That's a lot of heavy lifting.

You could work a construction job and get paid to do that.


Damn Mexicans coming here and stealing our cross-fit jerbs.
 
2014-05-14 04:03:09 PM  
So nobody likes hearing others talk about how they do crossfit, but when the people that do crossfit hang out together so that they can, presumably, talk about it amongst people that they won't annoy, that's bad because they are now a cult.

perhaps sugar in the sauce is the culprit - which depending on how hard core you/they/me are trying to be about it, can be excused for a night out kind of thing. doesn't mean you have to wash it down with the whole tray of pita bread.

Whenever someone starts talking about the paleo diet, I point out that the life expectancy in the paleolithic era was 25-30.

On the paleo diet you are allowed a couple of non-paleo meals each week, I believe. I looked into it at one point. Not for me.

2014-05-14 04:13:35 PM  

eagles95: I do it but dont post about it. And as far as unsafe, yes, there are bad ones out there that dont teach you proper technique on every movement. The one i went to taught you how to lift with PVC piping and then graduate to empty bar. They also made sure you  used perfect form  and wouldnt let you go to regular classes until you did. If people asked me about it, I always say to research all the ones in your area and try their free classes. If its not organized well and a mess, dont join that one. As far as a cult, hell yea people there take it WAY too far on social media.


Unfortunately some of the exercises are completely and totally unsafe to do, regardless of how you do it or what you are taught.

You are completely right - combining some resistance training with intense cardio and agility drills.  Include someone to teach you the olympic lifts (and the requisite space and equipment, it's hard to find gyms with bumper plates sometimes) and you can replicate the ~$125 a month crossfit experience on your own.  If you want you can also just swipe the posted workouts from the main crossfit website, there are new ones posted every day so you don't even have to do your own planning if you don't want to.

To flip that though, for $125 a month all I have to do is show up for an hour, three to four times a week, put in a decent effort and listen to the coaches, and I can be pretty certain to stay in the best shape of my life.

Neither of those options seems terrible.

I once did some beginner crossfit classes and then a couple of "real" classes. It was hard as shiat. Seriously, seriously hard. Obviously easy to get hurt at if you aren't extremely careful but you could say the same about a lot of things.

I don't think it's really my thing though. I prefer running and tris.

Aigoo: TheYeti: buntz: I mean, I hear people talk about running marathons constantly, especially on Facebook,  but I don't spend my days making "anti-marathon" memes about it.

I came here to say this.

Jesus H. Christ, no one cares about how your run was today.

I only know one marathoner whose run length I give a shiat about. Dude's lost an entire person's worth of body weight in about a year--by taking up running & weightlighting and by changing his diet...hasn't ever done crossfit or any of that shiat. Did everything on his own, by doing his own research and coming up with his own exercise and dietary plans (and by putting down the damned fork, not eating McDonald's and shiat like that and not complaining he couldn't do it on a low income when he makes about 23k a year). A year ago, he was a full on couch potato with a waist size almost the same as his height. Now he wears size 36 waist jeans. Just ran his first half marathon, with a full marathon coming up later this year.

Sometimes, it can be a good thing when people post that shiat--keeps them accountable. Other times, they're talking shiat because they need to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

Jster422: So nobody likes hearing others talk about how they do crossfit, but when the people that do crossfit hang out together so that they can, presumably, talk about it amongst people that they won't annoy, that's bad because they are now a cult.


No, it's in the cult "phase".  In 5 years it will be on the ash-heap of exercise fads.  Those of us who do some cardio and resistance training at a healthy rate just get annoyed (and maybe jealous)  when we see people getting rich off rubes like yourself.

I blame Jane Fonda for this.  Her exercise videos started all this and are on the bottom of the ash-heap.

tricycleracer: Kubo: Isitoveryet: thread needs moar crossfit girly pics :(

Since I've yammered on about CF for several posts, it's the least I can do.

So I'm not missing much by not going to the gym.


That sharpness to their abs extends, quite unfortunately, to their knees.

Be careful what you wish for.

Nadie_AZ: Wait. Crossfit gyms are called 'boxes'?

Por que tan serioso: I read part of your post then felt like you should be punched in your "box".

This suddenly makes sense.


This. It's even more insufferable than I thought. Still not as bad low-carb and no-carb people, but give it a few years, it'll get there.

eagles95: Pinner: eagles95: Pinner: GOD! Had a friend and his wife over to plan some meals for a trip. They were going on and on about "we don't eat bread, we'll have paleo wraps.... oh, we don't do yogurt or granola... have you ever TRIED sun-butter? I'll make some paleo cookies for you..." on and on.
I was looking at them the whole while contemplating reminding them: Didn't you guys just order two LARGE pizzas 5 minutes ago? WTF are you talking about?!

 paleo cross-fit cult hypocrites

Try going out drinking with some...GAWD!! And my wife and I are into it but when we go out we just want some drinks and relax not be lectured on that beer isnt paleo, Fark off buddy i just busted my arse for 65min, I can have a beer

This other cross-fit paleo D-Bag wouldn't even taste the flourless cake his wife made and was really proud of, because there was some sugar in it. Like two tbsp for the whole thing or something. "Because it's not paleo"
as he's working on his second bottle of wine.
I was going to ask him how much sugar is in a bottle of zin, but we were their guests for dinner.
Once.

We must know the same couple. I will admit that because of crossfit and pushing a paleo diet I do eat a lot more veggies including squash, sweet potatoes more regularly now than before.


That's great! Any healthy diet is a good one. I just think that some people are so into the fad that they feel like they "belong" to something now, and they can't shut up. I laugh my ass off when they tell me what they spend on groceries... all the specialty items... Geeze. A marketing dream come true.
I want a T-shirt that says:
Shut up already about your Free Range, low-carb, organic, locally sourced, gluten free, paleo diet.
