Put a bunch of boulders, tires & various sizes of scrap metal in a room. Have the "customers" wear a shocking device. They must keep moving the objects for 30 minutes, or get shocked. After 30, they can leave the room or keep going.


Just needs a snappy name. BAM Ferrari money!

That said, I will also look for pictures of that ridiculous bewbmonster later, ALSO with the help of the Internets.
Compound movements, workouts focused on functional strength and atheletic conditioning, much like sports cross-training, hence the name.
Sorry we haven't been particularly direct for those who aren't already involved in it. The FAQ on the main web page is pretty good at orientation.

And with all the pictures of the CrossFit girls around here (not that I'm complaining), let's not forget the results guys get. I just saw this pic on the site today.

Before I left Arizona, crossfit was picking up- but more as a fad which also irritates me.
It is a fad. It gives some great results, overall fitness is awesome, it's not good for maximum strength (i.e. powerlifter) or size (bodybuilders). It tends to make women look really good, but then, most any intense training will do the same.

Still, for overall being in shape, it's tough to beat.

Just drop the douche bag attitude; everyone starts somewhere and for all the guys just doing tricep kickbacks, you're just following a cookie cutter program, which isn't a whole lot different depending on the perspective. I worked with a crossfitter to help bring his strength up, I have incorporated things from crossfit to assist my own training. It's all a journey. Only the new or the stupid believe there is just one way.

OK, I'm through reading about CrossFit.

It sounds dangerously effing intense, and it sounds like my ceiling is too low for some of the exercises that they do often, so CrossFit's out for me.

I mean... I like the no-rest down-to-business aspect of it, but I just don't think it's for me.

You can tailor it to whatever your goals are. You can add or subtract from it, and improvise equipment.

I figured that, but on the CrossFit website, they give you a bunch of exercises, but I don't think a novice could combine them into CrossFit workouts without guidance.

I'd love to pick and choose to come up with 5 workouts of my own, but how do I know what to do with what... and what order to do 'em in?

How good is CrossFit for adding muscle, for dudes? I don't have a problem with too much fat, or poor cardiovascular fitness ... just can't add much more muscle than I have now (6'1" 180).

It's not designed to put on mass (though it does with the right diet). You'd be better off going with "West side for Skinny Bastards" for mass: http://www.elitefts.com/ws4sb/WS4SB.pdf Go put on some wieght and come back to cross fit to get back into fighting shape . WS4SB is more like off-season training and CrossFit is more like in-season training.

It's terrible for adding size. You're doing all sorts of conditioning and cardio-based training. Most guys have trouble with gaining size due to diet issues. While possible to gain weight while doing crossfit, it would require many more calories.

Got it, cheers guys. I don't think it's diet issues, I pretty much just eat lean meats and veggies, and a good mix of complex carbs. Was just curious, some of the CF dudes look pretty big.

CrossFit chick sparks my interest as well as the entire routine.

I thought about trying the routine out last year, but I'm afraid it will burn off too much mass.

The thing about crossfit is this. If it's to easy, you aren't putting in enough. Lift it heavier and faster next time. If it's too hard, lower the weight, lower the sets and or reps or take more time.

There are very few people but extremely talented athletes that can jump right in and do the work out of the day as posted and put up impressive times/numbers.

Start here
http://www.crossfitbrandx.com/index....a9cdcec3157228

The forum dumbs down the WOD to multiple levels.

Is Crossfit the ultimate workout for bulking or putting up huge weight.. No. Some people remedy this by mixing in ME days, while still not optimal, it adds a strength focus to the program.

bump!


just started Crossfit in the last 2 weeks. It's kicking my butt right now, but I'm loving it. Ive always been a conventional free weight kinda guy, but one of the employees at the gym I go to got certified, so now he's teaching it. I'm still gonna do my normal weightlifting workouts, but this is definitely gonna be a priority. I'm using this to get in overall better shape. I'm strong(weigh 190lb...bench 365, squat 500), but it's been a long time since I really felt like I was in good overall shape. Here is the WOD we did today:

7 rounds

-5 pullups
-10 ring pushups
-15 hurdle jumps
-20 squats

Instead of that order I went this way: ring pushups, pullups, hurdles, and squats.

I did it in 15 minutes flat. I was pretty happy. I know this is probably small beans, but I'm happy since it was only our 5th workout.

Today's WOD:

5 rounds

10 pullups
10 squats/10 jumping squats/10 lunges/10 jumping lunges(all in succession is 1 set)
30 seconds of holding yourself up on the rings
10 Mr. Spectaculars with 25lb dumbbells(start in pushup position, do pushup, walk your hands up, grab DB's, then press them, then walk back out into the pushup position)
Carrying Chuck(that's the name for our 60lb duffel bag) from one area of the gym to another and back....a total of about 60-70 yards. Or, since there was 4 of us doing it, if Chuck wasnt available, you carried 2 35lb plates, which is actually harder.

We did it in about 36 minutes. This one kicked my ass so bad. But awesome nonetheless.

i dont think nasioc is the place to learn about crossfit and def. not a place to post your WOD. anyways. Ive been Crossfitting for a year and its simply amazing how it can change a persons life. Not only how you look but also how you feel and react to everyday situations. Crossfit is not about how you look its all about how you perform. Im not saying you wont get ripped up and toned out but your not gona look like Arnold from this stuff. But I can gaurantee you will be in the best shape of your life. I do crossfit 3 to 5 days a week and try to lift weights at the normal gym to keep my muscle growth up. just doing some simple chest, arm, and core work at your local gym will drastically improve visual results while doing crossfit.
