how much weight was on the bar?
It was real as far as I know from an actual gym and from people being serious.I almost peed in my pants watching the video Joseph posted. My God you’re telling me that was real?
I don't know, and it doesn't matter. It is likely a light weight, maybe the low 100s as a guess. This is dangerous with any weight. They are doing barbell "snatches" for reps. They are looking at the clock and pushing themselves without any reason or purpose. They do things like this with all sorts of lifts, including deadlifts, lifts which are require strict attention to form and are done only for low reps, being done without proper instruction, for time.how much weight was on the bar?
This is always a thing...people are adults and are in control of their own lives. We can do what we want to do. For those who are "into" something, I guess that is their choice, however, I think there is a duty to some degree to help others make intelligent decisions, at least, to the extent where we are willing to share information to those who want it.Maybe i am wrong, that is ok. I tried 2-3 times crossfit training and i was more tired that strong. So it is not my part of training. But me is me. There are people who enjoy this type of training, and i respect them if they get goals.
http://games.crossfit.com/what-is-crossfitCrossfit is mixing of everything, so you focus on everything, i don’t think it is a good idea.
Looking for "immediate results" is a bit misguided.Along these lines, if you wanted to get as well conditioned as possible in the shortest period of time, would you turn up the heat or would you stick to the PM as written? In the long run the PM is the better option, but is there a better option for more immediate results?
Lets say you had an event coming up in 3 months that you needed to be really well conditioned for? Is it good to push to failure or almost to failure for short periods of time? When fighters have an event coming up, their training camps essentially consist of pushing themselves harder than what they would be able to sustain for longer periods of time, presumably for the purpose of being better prepared than they would be if they trained at a pace that would allow for sustained improvement for the next year.
I do not think "something is better than nothing" is a reason to find value in everything.crossfit is crap?
compared to what? a program designed from Dan J, Pavel T, Jim Wendler, (fill in other good coach here) sure, relative to those, crossfit is inferior.
I would say that the typical bodybuilding type of workout is superior to Crossfit because it doesn't pretend to be something it is not.compared to average bro routine: bench press force reps (it’s all you!!!) + bench burnouts + run the rack curls + partial leg press… relative to this, crossfit rocks.
Bad things are not good because there are worse things.compared to average female gymgoer routine: yes no machine, hamster work while reading cosmo, crunches… relative to this, crossfit is AWESOME.
In that case, everything is relative and we cannot make declarative statements on anything.it depends on your reference point. crossfit may be the best thing to happen to the mainstream fitness industry in a long time.
To add, Crossfit's workouts on the site are often dangerous to attempt to do. Their structure is random, and the volume excessive. It is not scaled nor is it sensible.compared to average bro routine: bench press force reps (it’s all you!!!) + bench burnouts + run the rack curls + partial leg press… relative to this, crossfit rocks.
That makes you, you. You do not need a brand name or a personal guru.I fully admit that I don’t neatly fit into any category and that’s the way I like it. I consider myself an Olympic lifter who likes to do metabolic conditioning (to stay in shape for skiing) in the form of CF, kettlebells, and the occasional bike ride or short run. What does that make me?
