My patience for this ass-backwards clusterfuck of moronic cultthink is wearing thin. I almost started berating some random dude on the street yesterday because he was telling his gf all about this "interesting new workout methodology." Now the assholes are using the entire fucking basketball court to do running jump rope and wall handstand push ips and fucking who knows what else. Fuck them all.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

I cannot believe the amount of people getting into crossfit at my university. Mind you, I go to a Division I school and I see these huge guys on the varsity teams getting into crossfit now. Wasting my fucking time, taking up the power cage to do 65lbs push presses and squats.

What is crossfit? Is it some type of workout routine.

I sure do. But I haven't been looking at that. Like I quoted, "hot chicks" are the only benefits I've SEEN thus far.

yea there are def. some positives to it

its gets you pretty good at everything, master of nothing but for most ppl that works well, also pretty good for fat loss in terms of getting in lots of work burning lots of calories, stresses flexiblity, strength, explosive power, endurance, def. not the worst thing in the world.  some of the stuff is out there, or just too over the top but there are lots of good things in crossfit

That is some crazy stuff man!. I don't see many innovative workout techniques that are not around yet.
1.58 is a good one, for the trolly dashers if you want to compete in supermarket sweep or something lol.

of course someone could, the problem is that:
1. it's an inefficient way to accomplish either of those goals, or really almost any goal;
2. it promotes unsafe and nonsensical exercise practices;
3. it's full of bullshit information about physiology and diet;
4. it promotes a self-affirming cult mentality in which the central belief system can't be questioned and which creates a completely undeserved feeling of superiority among most practitioners*,
5. people are god-damn evangelical about it, which i hate hate hate hate hate more than anything else. you wanna do thrusters and destroy your immobile, desk-jockey shoulders with high-rep shit-form kipping pull ups? knock yourself out. just don't tell me there's something fucking special about exercising that way or that doing those things makes you ELITE. there are ? ways to get your heart rate up really fast and work your muscles really hard that don't involve combining reverse power curls with box jumps and burpees.
6. they take up too much fucking space at my gym.

*the competitors at the crossfit games don't count. they're athletic, strong and in great shape, no doubt. but also my understanding is that most don't actually train crossfit-style, but rather with good old periodized training. and anyway, that's what, .01% of the people who do crossfit?
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
