    Does anyone Crossfit here?

    I have been on this board for a while and know most of you guys. As far as I know no one on here does any sort of Crossfit. Just wondering if any of you have heard of it or even tried it....? I've been doing it for the past 7 months and I am in the best shape of my life.

    i think i saw a youtube vid of some crossfit chick doing like 100 kipping pull ups in one set

    not an easy task by any means

    some of the crossfit people are pretty incredible

    5'11"
    ~175lbs

    I tried one of there workouts at the gym awhile ago during the summer.

    It was something like...... Perform 10 thrusters with 65lbs then 10 pullups in rounds for 20 minutes without stopping. That was a pretty horrible workout

    not easy does not mean that it is good.

    it is not easy.....a lot of it is also not smart.

    just because someone makes you tired doesn't mean that they can make you better.

    it has some ideas that i think are okay, but they go about it in dangerous ways at times in my opinion.

    Oh well I dont disagree......but at the same time I do. I know you hate Crossfit.....but at the same time it is something you ought to try. Whenever it comes to something like clean and jerk for time its a bit much but I still do it. Its not for a rookie, but then again am I a rookie......? Crossfit is fun! Theres nothing I can do that is equal to this......I have tried many other workouts, but none are the same.........

    Ive had the same experience, nothing comes close to this shit, it is the real deal. I bodybuild on days off.
    safety comes down to the athlete, if you train smart you can find your physical limits...all of them, if you are too worried or lazy to try then well...its okay to be a pussy.

    Nothing is ever as good as creating something for yourself IMO.
