So I did 400m worth of lunges, equaled about 350 lunges total. Jelly legs.

Does every gym do this?

Nice! Once you get the crossfit inch, you never want to do anything else.Btw, I also recommend looking at the Ducan diet. It's what I used to loose weight. Compared to other diets I've done, it's extremely simple. 5 days of pure protein then alternate between pure protein days and protein with veggies.

5 weeks into crossfit, I started on December 19th-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qyLLSpDu-w

Check out those shoulders, arms and chest, are you fucking kidding me?!?!?

I've watched that video 100 times just because I can't believe the results I'm getting from Crossfit BNI here in Riverview. The workouts are brutal, absolutely dripping wet and exhausted brutal, to the point where you are seeing stars brutal, gasping for air brutal, screaming in pain brutal, but I fucking LOVE it and I can't stop going back!!

Even Jenn started 3 weeks ago and she's putting in work & getting results!

if i ever see somebody on cross-fit doing something like this, i'll punch them square in the face.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDDyxXyf6UU

also this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=hWzBAILASzE

not to hate on crossfit, but there are far more effective methods of getting fit. if you're just trying to get in shape; along with proper diet, cross fit might do the trick. but if you want to go above and beyond everyone else, i'd suggest looking into other routines and programs. honestly some of this stuff just looks uncoordinated, unsafe, and doesn't seem to hold a lot of purpose

Then you've never been to a good gym. In my opinion Crossfit is by FAR the best way to gain functional fitness. A good gym with a good trainer will enforce form over speed throughout the entire workout.

BTW, you may want to look up the Axle clean and jerk (the lift they were preforming in the video). While they failed the lift (and didn't have very good form), the Axle Clean and Jerk is a real lift, not a Olympic lift, but a strongman lift. Look at the last video, it's a WR Axle C&J. With the second part of the lift, it seems to be focused on a press then a real jerk. The people in video were doing the lift correctly for the most part, the only problem I see is the uneducated.


Btw, the second video you linked, we many want to do you research, the company behind it is in no way a crossfit affiliate, none of there trainers are Crossfit certified. Before you come into my thread and start linking videos. Do some fucking research of your own, it literally took me 5 minutes to provide a accurate response to your first video (axle cleans) and 3 seconds to find out that the gym wasn't in any way, shape, or form practicing crossfit methodology or being run by crossfit trainers.


I don't care about body building, never have. You find me a better fitness program that will prepare me for a career in the Military and I'll gladly start doing it. Problem is any military prep training (sealfit, SF Wods) use crossfit methods because it's good at building overall fitness and good endurace. I don't want a 6 pack abs, I want to ace a PT test. I don't want massive biceps. I want to pass SFAS, not prance around in my undies lubed up on stage.. I want to complete the goals I set out of myself with the most chance of success, crossfit is the best way to train for it.

What's the point of the over under grip on the dead lift though?! It's just unsafe and you could be pulling so much more weight with a regular grip.

As far as "functional strength/fitness" goes. I don't believe in it. Personally, I think you'd be much better prepared by getting on Baby Lover's Modified Starting Strength and including some massive amounts of cardio (swimming or running) rather than being on a circuit program. My cousin served recon in the usmc and i never heard of him doing anything besides basic weightlifting and cardio to prep and stay in shape. I plan on enlisting as well after college.

I just don't think 10-20 minutes of push ups or box jumps each day is really going to help you tremendously. But if it's working for you and you're reaching your goals, who's to stop you?

If you think alternating grip deadlifts are unsafe, you really need to learn more about lifting. Mixed grip deadlifts are safe, I've been doing deadlifts that way, way before I started Xfit.

As for the duration of workout, selection for TACP or SFAS has multiple 2ish hour long pt sessions. While the Basic Recon Course is designed to take and build up people through long PT sessions. SFAS, they expect you to show up, ready to put out.


As for workout duration, I cannot transition straight into SEALfit workouts, which are all around 1.5 hours long, in my current physical shape. I'm building up my body (maxing the APFT) before I make the jump into longer duration workouts.

Oh, btw, don't be surprised if you crossfit style workouts at some of the higher military schools. SWCC, TACP, CCT, PJ, and a few others all use that style of training.
