I actually love lifting weights. I despise any form of cardio except maybe playing sports on occasion. But even then, it has to be so fun as to distract me from the cardiovascular benefits.

I'ts much more fun when I get to be a gabby guess when I'm lifting with y8s. Otherwise I just listen to audiobooks by myself and pretend I'm the hunky protagonist that gets all the ladies. but it's much better than any straight cardio work.

All I ever want to eat is bagels and candy. I can only blame myself.

I used to be incredibly thin and active in HS so I could get away with it. I could understand how people got fat.

Then college came and I ate like a ******* pig (I would have an order of cheese fries, a bloomin' onion, and an alice springs chicken for 1 dinner almost every weekend) and I stopped moving altogether (literally), I've been dealing with it ever since.

I need to dig up some pictures of the day I went off and then when I graduated...I think I was like 160-170 when I arrived and left about 200-210 or so.

I love lifting weights. I honestly have thoughts of opening a gym and becoming a professional weight loss coach after playing around in the Army.

I don't like Cheesecake Factory. I do like their girlie peach daquari drink.

I like cheese fries, although the quality went really downhill at Outback. I used to just get it on my birthday once a year and pig out as a thing, but it's not even good anymore. They've been blacklisted. They don't even season the fries anymore. Hell, they don't even make a good steak for crying out loud; I'm surprised the place isn't bankrupt.

If I were to pick one restaurant to eat every day it would be Sweetwater Tavern. Mainly cause I like their homemade root beer.

Never. It clearly can never provide impressive results.

Let's be clear: the top level Crossfit competitors didn't get there by faithfully doing the WOD.

If Crossfit is never the answer, then you're not asking the right questions.



For instance:

How can I screw up my shoulders?
How can I ruin my back?
How can I look like a flopping, dying fish when doing pull-ups?
How can I push my body into rhabdomyolysis?

Pretty much. Crossfit didn't make those people big.

It's very common to read about competitors using Wender 5/3/1, Cube Method and other powerlifting routines to get strong. And of course exhausting yourself into muscular hypertrophy (bodybuilding). This isn't anything new. It's cardio and lifting (circuit training). It won't get you in better shape than if you did cardio and lifting separately.

The top level competitors DO NOT use wod's to get big. Another key factor is *drugs/PED's. Crossfit competitors are tested at the games, not the year leading to it. Those people are paid to be the poster men/women of the sport, so you bet your *** they are going to do what it takes to win that prize money and keep being the face of the company.

*I personally do not have an opinion on whether or not someone uses PED's for personal use or competition where drugs/PED's are legal.

Edit: I do not hate circuit training (crossfit). I do hate that the trainer/coaches are 99% retards who have no business teaching people compound lifts and are causing avoidable injuries. I do hate people telling me I need to be counter productive and do cardio in between my sets. I do hate the crossfit smug attitude that seems to generate from the weakest people. I do hate crossfit taking the names of everything and simply adding crossfit to it (hey, what's your crossfit total brah?!). I do hate how they have NO RULES for completing a rep on compound lifts. I do hate how every single lifting style besides crossfit is considered "non-functional" by crossfit retards.

Edit: obligatory pics of swoleness

Gymnast


Powerlifter (Dan Green. My personal favorite)



Weightlifter


Sprinter


Strongman


Aesthetic Bodybuilding


Natural Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding



Notice the trend? The trend is swoleness. Guess they all got swole? Weight training. Either body weight, dumbbell or barbell.

That's why your original post was stupid or lazy.

There are guys in some Crossfit classes that lift heavy, lift right, and run sub-6:00 minute miles. They can also do handstand pushups and plenty of body-strength agility techniques.

That doesn't mean they got their results entirely from solely doing spastic Crossfit WODs. I sure as Hel wasn't suggesting that, nor do I know of anyone worth paying attention to who did.

I always hate all people who make absolutist generalizations.

Edit: I do not hate powerlifting. I do hate that the trainer/coaches are 99% retards who have no business teaching people compound lifts and are causing avoidable injuries. I do hate people telling me I need to be counter productive to my goals and never do cardio because it kills my gains. I do hate the gym-bro smug attitude that seems to generate from the thickest people. I do hate how they have NO RULES at the gym for completing a rep on compound lifts. I do hate how every single lifting style besides powerlifting is considered "non-functional" by powerlifting retards.

Because it is


lol. I ******* hate cardio. I do just enough to keep me trimming a little every week, but I can still run low-mid 6 minute miles. If I want to do real cardio I just lift weights faster.

Don't post pics of crossfit people and "impressive results". They lifted weights and do cardio. They "pick stuff and put it down", same as all the other people. All they do different is strange movements and excessive risk of injury.
