[quote=“MattB” post=18632]I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the basic principle of Crossfit - mixing cardio with high-rep resistance, it’s just the “reverse fight club” rule that gives it a bad name!
Wd - you said that last year! And we still don’t know how far the chippy is from your gaff ;)[/quote]
Agreed! The fundamentals are good.
But crossfit is nothing new, its just intensive circuit training. The military have been doing it for years! Its just been given a fancy name.
What annoys me about it is the fact people with hardly any experience start trying to do complex lifts with horrendois form and ego gets into it instead of going light and getting the form. Its 1 way ticket to snapcity! Loads of people get injured from Crossfit.
And the fact its saturated with the “we dont pose but we actually do” people. The “box” (not a gym…roll eyes) doesnt have any mirrors to stop posing…mirrors are vital for checking form!
Anyway Rant over.
Anyone do triathlons? Its a goal in life to do one but I am a little too in love with my big lifts.
mapmyrun is a good site/app.
