And I made this thread to get flamed about it.
wall balls bro
as long as it gets you moving
you still hittin the mats?
if i had money to burn, i'd do it
how w do it
been off for a month due to vacation and work travel, but yes
$60 a month. They give a heavy discount to grapplers
man for 60 a month i would be all over that at least just to try it out.
it feels very cult-ish to me, creepy
that's the vibe i always got too, but I wouldn't judge it without having gone to one and been through a few of the workouts they do. Only ever seen videos. Maine was/is going to a crossfit gym I think.
planned training > completely randomized training
been doing it for a month and a half. I LOVE it.
workouts are always changing, and the competition is great
I've seen great results
gotta keep the muscles guessing
word. that's pretty solid
You'll enjoy it. I liked my few months of crossfitting.
My best friends dad makes a living off personal training which allows him to live in a very nice area. He's crossfit certified, says he only does it because of the money and its a joke.
Great cardio though. Hope you get good results.
Disregard the first comment.
The average person has no idea how to even put together four exercises for a chest day or an upper body workout hitting all the essentials. Its easy to see why experienced lifters see the simplification of crossfit and want to exploit it but they always seem to forget that the majority of people really don't know what they are doing. All they know is that they are getting tired so they are getting a good workout, which is great when you get a bunch of people with the same mentality. Its motivating and the money you are putting up to join the gym will keep you coming back.
Yep, definitely worth it. More than anything it just pushes me past what I would normally do (especially from a cardio perspective)
It's kind of cultish but at the same time it's just a bunch of random people who gave it a shot and liked it. I could see myself being the type of guy who loves it and wants to share it with other people. not because I'm a cult guy but because when you have something good like fitness you want people around you to enjoy it
I like your thoughts. It just helps someone like ME stay on task. Crossfit is not for everyone. It's too bad though cause most people think that every class is some random cardio circuit. Which is not the case. There are lots of strength days, some days are 1RM's, etc. Lots of variety and they have programs that are specifically designed just to get jacked.
$60 is cheap. Half price
F & N crew surpising me. It's probably because I know longer have a jiu jitsu avatar.
Can I join a CF gym and just not do their workouts? No other gyms around here have bumper plates and platforms.
at home during the summer the gym i use has a CF gym inside it. i use their bumper plates when there isn't a class going on
It's random training.. so honestly, pick anything involving a giant set of compound lifts or olympic lifts or both, maybe throw in a 400-800m in there, and do it for time. That's it.
For example, here's my Crossfit workout, it's called the FranJanDan:
10 Burpees superset with 10 ball sack grabs
Do it for time. WOD. Game set match.
I did it in 8 minutes. I'm so good at the BSGs
There's usually a focus to a WOD...more often than not it's legs. Programming, in my gym at least, takes into account about a month of training at a time. In some sense we'll have a "leg" day or "back" day, but it's approached day to day doing something different. For example, a leg day focused on legs might have front squats one week, then cleans, lunges, and/or box jumps the next go around. It's not as haphazard as you think.
