Cross Fit is fucking useless

Yeah you heard me.. you are not the fittest people in the world, these people are washed up hacks who could never make it as a weightlifter or ironman athlete. It angers me so much that these guys...call themselves 'superathletes' what exactly is "Cross Fit" what is the end goal? you have earned no respect from me at all, you're all egotistical fucks who are as good as joe blow who goes to the gym on a regular basis. Stop acting like it's a fucking sport and you guys are some sorts of superhero's time to take a backward step "Cross-fitters" you are the skidmark of society.

Re: Cross Fit is fucking useless

Cross Fit is just a shitty American rip off of the Iron Man series, and frankly the Iron Man series is a better test of athleticism.

Re: Cross Fit is fucking useless

I disagree. Crossfit is good in principle, but the fact that they really do have "washed up hacks who could never make it as a weightlifter or ironman athlete" teaching others the incorrect form and creating a sense of accomplishment when they did the entire exercise wrong is what brings it down. Nothing pisses me off more than when some rail-thin Crossfit douche is hogging a piece of equipment to do the exercise the wrong way. I would try to help them, but their "Master Trainers" taught them wrong.

However, I do use the three exercise, 21-15-9 bodyweight principle a lot as a means to an end to a good weight workout.

^^^ 1000x that. My mate works in a crossfit gym here, and knows his shit. Some trainers you meet, are fucking retarded.

these are 2 totally different things.

Iron man is a swim, cycling, running event. Crossfit is like High Intensity Interval Training. Ironman is an event, where as crossfit is training. so it's not a ripoff at all.

Crossfit is great, but like GlssBreaks said, a lot of people think it's 100% motivation and pushing through. But people will do something because Daniel Craig did it (which Craig did crossfit like training for getting shape for Casino Royale) and think they'll be good. It's stupid to think one 20 minute crossfit session with poor form and long breaks is a good enough workout regime. A lot of non-knowing people will simply throw weights around horribly thinking they're doing crossfit.

Try Thrusters, OP. Look them up. worst thing ever.

and no, crossfit doesn't mean your the most fit person at all. Fatties who can clean & press 180 kg don't impress me when they can't sprint up a flight of steps without puking.
