    Default Crossfit

    Ok, well, I'm figuring to start doing crossfit training, but I need some info on where to start. Just looking for anyone who knows crossfit or has done it to point me in the right direction. Websites, personal experiences, whatever, every little bit helps.

    Its a waste of time, IMO.

    True 'cross-fit' is done in a set up gym, done in groups for competition and pushing each other, so start looking locally for a gym that has it set up.

    Official Website:

    I will say this though: CrossFit-ers are decently athletic, pretty well rounded, but definitely not great at anything.

    Also, the majority of the CrossFit-ers I've met are ego-maniacs. Its one of the many critics of the system.


    Its principles are based off of a system called 'Tabata' which is actually worthwhile, again IMO. I would skip the crossfit and just do Tabata personally. This can be done right in any gym, no special requirements. While tabata is traditionally seen as a fat loss system, it will make you strong in other ways, like cardiovascular strength. And I'll bet you can still curl the maximum you were doing before, but be able to do it 10 times instead of 4.

    Alright well, I'll definitely look into Tabata, I wasn't super set on crossfit, I'm just looking for a really good well-rounded way of working out. I was looking at crossfit because I had heard good things and have seen things that lead me to believe that the US military special operations community are starting to gear towards it more, which is my ending goal. But by all means I'll check it out, I'm completely open-minded about this whole thing, thanks Tekk. I appreciate the input.
