I used to laugh heartily at crossfit in general. Then I cleaned Linda's bench...I mean, then I tried the Linda workout at the suggestion of a friend. Body was not ready, but new respect for crossfit was found (with one glaring exception, see below).

The only tongue-in-cheek issue I take with crossfit was a snippet from the televised Crossfit games. As the camera cut back in from commercial, there was a voiceover describing crossfit as "The movements of everyday life..." among other things. The contestants in that particular competition had to then perform medicine ball somethings (they made real-life sense, thought the name eludes me), and then do "handstand pushups...at a defecit," by which they had to handstand (vertical...as measured by a bigass piece of plexiglass) on some pipe handles, and then to push ups. I've never been at a grocery store and had the cashier told me "I'm sorry, WVPrankster, but I can't sell you this six pack until you do 10 headstand pushups."

I'm in no way, shape, or form trashing crossfit- that ish kicks my arse on a regular basis...but I thought that v/o was hysterical, given the on-screen activities.

Coming in a little late.
This week 216.
Starting up Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 tomorrow (finally got my maxes for all the lifts)
(for tracking purposes bench 280, clean- 260, squat-365, deadlift-395.)
Diet is high protein and clean carbs, I don't want to get into 220+ but don't want to get lower than 208 or so. Looking forward to the progress over the next few months.

201lbs, finally got my BW to start increasing. 4,200cals seems to be the sweet spot.

Completely revamped my routine for the first time in probably over a year, strength seems to be progressing well so far.

I agree with you, some parts of the crossfit "culture" is a bit goofy, but that can be said of many other groups with their norms and mores.

I have met a few people that are a bit on the edge IMO, but as a workout, it's a pretty awesome workout.
