That and the fact that none of the rest of hteir claims are even remotely close to be real. 700 lb DL without training it? No Crossfitter has EVER done it, nor will they. Build more muscle than bodybuilding? Only women get any sort of hypertrohpy gains from it b/c fooling around with 95 lb powercleans is a training weight for a woman. The men never get anywhere. but they hang around to be around teh Xfit chicks.

but hey I've never given anybody rhabdo so I must not be hardcore enough to understand.
If its heavy enough to cause hypertrophy for women, its probably dangerous doing them in that fashion, especially something liek cleans

if you want to know Xfit inside out, head over to irongarmx and look at the couch thread.

Everything you need to know about xfit is there.

IMO - any program that will get the couch potato out and active has some merit. (crossfit, p90x, wii, other general fitness programs)

And if a few people end up in the hospital with rhabdo, that's ok too.

This is wrong in the context of getting a beginner to do a stupid program that provides no benefit except pain and possible injuries.

Being an overweight kid who got thrown into "crossfit" concepts of training, I despised working out. I was taught a very bad perspective of what "proper fitness" is. I used to think brutally killing one's body was the healthy way to do things. But what did I know, I was a kid.


When I started weight training in high school, I did so with the same mentally and over-trained myself. I eventually ended up injuring my shoulder. Not fun.

Most "couch potatoes" from my experience don't workout because they have the mindset that being in shape is about killing oneself in the gym. They look at exercise with a negative mentality.

From videos I've seen on crossfit (and my own experiences), there is a lot of injury potential and bad technique going on. For a beginner, this is NOT the right program to start with.

And when you tell most Crossfitters this, they tlel you that X-fit weeds out the weak and you're just not hardcore enough. And laugh (or used to) when people got rhabdo, even had t-shirts that said Yayyy rhadbo. Such crap.

So what Overkill said.

And to add to my response, wouldn't it make more sense for a beginner to start from the get go with the RIGHT information, instead of dancing with retarded programs that provide nothing but misery and OCD habits?

Sounds familiar...ugh I feel really bad for people who get introduced to fitness with morons like this.

Not cool at all.
