shameless, shitty plug.
Hello everyone, I am not an avid poster here and havent even checked in lately, Ironmag started my BB routine years ago. Ive discovered something called Crossfit and wanted to post it here for the readers...I feel I owe it to someone or something as this forum used to be my info home.
I was a BB all the way for 3-4 years, until I learned of Crossfit. If your goal is fitness and looking good, this is it. one thing though...no more curls, lat raises, crunches aka "non functional fluff with minimal metabolic response"
definition of crossfit- functional movements performed at high intensities in a constantly varied fashion.
this program PUNISHES specialists, I learned this the hard way as I used to specialize in BB.
All the good aspects of BB are still there SQT, BP, DL, OHP plus a whole lot more that BB's are missing.
Welcome to CrossFit: Forging Elite Fitness
shameless, shitty plug.
i love taht site
site blows ass.
you dont make any sense
Yes I do, read the first post..he made it sound as if you can't do "isolation" exercises and still do other things. You can do as he calls non-function fluff and still do
that site is amazing. not for body builders but for athletes it is great.
so now we're saying bodybuilders aren't athletes?
BBs are definitly athletes, having a muscular physique naturally improves fitness, however it is also based alot on appearance. And because of the appearance factor, people believe training in this fashion is the way to train.
Think about the ultimate goal of BB, to be as big as nature will allow. the kings of this sport (BB) are hardly functional athletes.
ok. they are athletes but they dont need to be as good at cardio and other things that cross fit does.
Olympic, college and high school wresters do.

hey you guessed it. but i still think you're a stupid fuck.
Don't worry - one day you will feel secure enough within yourself that you won't have to try and make yourself feel better by belittling others from the safe vantage point of the anonymous computer terminal.
Offering constructive advice to others may assist them, and if you are open to differing opinions you may even learn something yourself. But I doubt you will really hear what I am saying, so throw in another intelligent come back if you will, but you will be talking to yourself from this point on as I have nothing further to add unless you contribute in an adult like manner.
ok. dumbass. im not sayig they are not athletes but BBrs dont nee to be able to do superesets and circuits etc that crossfit does.
look at the site today,
the workout of the day yesterday was front squat 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
another workout would be run 800m, 50 back extension, 50 sit ups
3 rounds for time
some more examples of a crossfit w/o;
120 pull up or chin up
once in a while you'll get a 5k run
you never know what your gonna get it is so unlike a routine, there are thousands of w/o combining, gymnastics, power lifting(very functional), BB, rowing, kettle balls and so much more
