P.I.T.A. to clean silver

Allison quit Crossfit for a while. She didn't like how cult-like it was becoming, so she took a few months off, which led to her finding other outlets for her physical fitness.. It became an obsession versus an actual goal. Doing something just to do something... sounds to me like its just an odd hobby, but to each their own.

I see this successfully integrated into combat training, or into a decathlete program, but just doing it to do it? Whatever floats your boat.

I ****ing hate crossfit. I did it for almost 3 months and I will agree that it is extremely good at getting you into shape. I was pretty obsessed with it and I loved it for a while. Then I realized how damaging it is to your body. I was going M-F in the morning. I like the competitiveness and the results, but again I think that all the lifts will end up giving you massive joint problems if you do it for a while.

The gym I was going to calls themselves a "barbell club" and focus mostly on snatch and clean.

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.


and why is it a bad idea to post WODs?


also, as an avid lifter before CrossFit, I can say that Ive put muscle on while doing CrossFit. But I do about 3 days where the workouts involve heavier compound lifts.

you can keep your muscle size up in Crossfit if you know what you're doing.

how's it different than hitting the gym in the sense you're talking about?



Plus, where did all our posts go?

you were probably lifting incorrectly. I go M-F and aside from a previous shoulder injury that gives me problems sometimes, I have no pain, and we do a bunch of different lifts.

Fail post at three months you hardly have the experience or expertise to claim it damages joints. if anything the tendons and ligaments are strengthened

Meh, some people have problems that training exposes, most likely had some serious muscular imbalances and didn't do anything to correct it. I highly doubt with the weight and activities done with crossfit that any tendon or joint damage was done. In fact, I'd go a step further and ask why you think it damaged your joints? I'm guess because you have no idea what you're talking about and your joints were sore. P.S. I'm not a fan of crossfit, but I'm much less of a fan of making **** up.
