Google is your friend. I'm not saying Crossfit is the end all be all workout system but you were bashing a guy that has better cardio than you and stronger than you at 150 lbs. Phone Post

I compete in triathlons so I doubt he has "better cardio" than I.

why should I go through the trouble of googling someone whose name I don't know whilst you claim that you've seen the videos? If so, link them. if not. thank you for your valuable contribution.

Don't argue Arthur, he does xfit so therefore he is stronger than you and has better cardio by definition. He's probably better in bed too.

  haha yeah HULC...way more "hip torque" and all.

lmao that youtube video was great...I think that bloopers video is great, a woman about to give birth is doing kipping pull ups -___- a guy with an arm in a sling is doing...something with a bar that resembles a snatch yet, of course, x-fitters don't believe in muscle imbalances I'm sure.

Someone once told me. "Crossfit is a load of wankers running around in knee socks try to be the best at exercising". Pointless waste of time, no periodisation to plans and dangerous with the oly lifts. Good luck to anyone doing it. Phone Post

I examined the system, found it lacking, and discarded it about 7 years ago. Funny to see it blowing up among my facebook friends right now and them constantly telling me "DUDE YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS".

And wasn't BJ Penn a big proponent of Crossfit during the phase of his career where he gassed horribly in every fight?

No, it was when he was winning.

Crossfit works perfect for its goals. They've been very successful so people hate and repeat nonsensical arguments their bros at the 24 hour fitness told them. There are douchebags that go gaga over Crossfit, just like MMA and everything else.

I beg to differ. BJ Penn was talking about Crossfit during 2009-2010 and that's when he got manhandled by GSP at WW (no shame in that) but then also lost to Frankie Edgar basically right after that. He did have great performances over Kenny Florian and Diego Sanchez but I think that's because he was with the Maronovich bros.

Very well written article on crossfit,

http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_investigative/the_truth_about_crossfit

gives a very unbiased assessment. I agree with the majority of the article. There's a couple articles out there too that point to the fact that the elite level competitors in the xfit games actually do very little crossfitting, ill try to pull that one up too.

This is not true. BJ Penn tried some crossfit but was not doing it on a regular basis, no where near enough for crossfit groupies to claim that crossfit provided any advantage in BJ Penn's career.

Prove me wrong! Find me the trainer that work with him during his fight camps. He did it a couple times, they put together a workout that he said sucked and felt like a "fight gone bad" which to this day holds it's name.

I've never heard any "bros" say any of that...met con is EPOC based training and it's great for specific goals. Crossfit does not promote and ramp on/scale up form which is why there's soo many video examples of bad form. Dude, my buddy does CrossFit in a gym here in NYC and he went to power lift with me the other day and literally, couldn't do a squat remotely correct (knees weren't trackign over feet, lumbar weak, cervical/chin too high up).  Furthermore, it obviously depends on the trainers. You can get to CF instructors with complete different understandings, experience and utilization of the program.

IDK about that last one.
