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

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.

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.

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.

I work right next door to these jagoffs. In an industrial park. We've got 18 wheelers and delivery trucks coming thru all day and they're running all around the parking lot without a care in the world. Sometimes I have to wait several minutes to back out of my damn parking spot.

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.

Kubo: Por que tan serioso: Kubo: Been Crossfitting for about a year and a half now, and I personally love it. I get the anger towards it though; if you go on YouTube and search "CrossFit," the first few results will undoubtedly be people trying to clean more  weight than they can safely manage, snatch more weight than they can safely manage, and squat more weight than they can safely manage. These people, more often than not, are the ones who end up hurting themselves.

The problem with CrossFit, which relates directly to these injuries, is that there are no specific guidelines or oversight on CrossFit gyms. To run a CrossFit gym (called a "box" by CFers), the coach needs to be CrossFit certified, but that's it. Once a coach has a certification, he/she does the programming and allows the athletes to lift what they think is right. For this reason, it's important for anyone interested in doing CF to actually research the box you are thinking of joining. My CF box is coached by a guy who was trained and competed in Olympic-style lifting, so he's VERY strict on what we can lift and can't. It's also very important that we have the technique of lifts down before we try it. That means we go through several weeks of training on very low weight for certain lifts before we try to do anything resembling heavy weight. That said, I've been to other boxes where I've seen a 105lb woman try to power clean 185lbs. The variation in the quality of the boxes is huge.

Having played HS baseball, football, and hockey, as well as collegiate ice hockey (I know, I know... gym in 26 minutes, all that)... it seems to me that my likelihood of injury doing CF is about the same as any competitive sport. Just like any other sport, however, it depends on oversight and quality of your strength coach. Know your limits and don't train like an ass, and you won't hurt yourself.

I read part of your post then felt like you should be punched in your "box".

I understand. Reading is hard. Keep at it, you'll get it.

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.

I used to work right next door to a Crossfit. One day I was outside having a smoke and one of them said something about the owner being crazy. I said "He gives you a bag of dirt to run up that hill with and you give him money. That's not crazy, that's f-ing genius."
