    Lol I find their loyalty to the paleo diet pretty comical considering that both the guy and girl that have dominated their crossfit games don't use it. Froning drinks whole milk and eats peanut butter. The chick eats rice. All of that is a big no-no to their paleo mindset.

    I'm trying it out today because of a recommendation by a good friend of mine that moved to NJ and opened his own gym. He told me the gyms to avoid and thr ones that actually have skilled people.

    No contracts at te gym so if it sucks I can leave at least. And if thy expect me to stop eating carbs and dairy they are high

    They don't actually train crossfit either.

    All of the top crossfit "competitors" training programs heavily utilize principles that are anathema to established crossfit doctrine. The drugs don't hurt either.

    well at the very least you get a coach to tell you what to do next.

    That is actually a good thing for many people. The self motivated hard workers are few compared to the greater number of people who need to be motivated and directed through workouts in order for them to receive and effective workout.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    I don't post often at all but what you said really hit something with what people say to me.

    In traditional kung fu group setting you are expected to work on your own and keep practicing until the "sihing/jie" or Sifu helps you.

    But more often than not nowadays people need someone to follow all the way through and have someone tell them what to do at every step.

    They can't work on their own or deem it not time efficient.

    All well.

    For good or bad, the crossfit workouts tend to create a more competitive environment. You've got a clock running and other people doing the workout at the same time.

    With that said, I think I'm a long way off from even considering most of that. Still a lot I don't know. Trainer had me do a 10 minute AMRAP workout te other day that was hard enough by myself. And it was a super scaled down version of theirs.

    for all i said before...I personally enjoy the workouts. maybe there are things wrong with the process and sometimes there are probably way more reps than needed.

    some of my fav's were the '30 reps as fast as you can' like 'Grace' or 'Isabell' ...i am noticing that they seem to be not referring to them as 'clean and jerk' (Grace) or 'snatch' (Isabell) as much. which is good since they are rarely performed with full squat catch or full split snatch cuz you can't get stupid low speeds they seem to strive for.

    and, the competetiveness and comradery of the group class is personally motivating. until you get a coach with his panties in a wad cuz you beat his gym record

    have at it man, have fun, don't drink the kool aid and watch out for overuse types of injuries.

    "If you find the right balance between desperation and fear you can make people believe anything"

    "Is enlightenment even possible? Or, did I drive by it like a missed exit?"

    It's simpler than you think.

    I could be completely wrong"

    No rep.

    His shirt was still on and no one filmed it with a generic 90's rap-metal soundtrack.

    yea, my biggest peeve with the group i was with was how they'd preach the paleo gospel but then would go out and get drunk as hell and eat tons of crap...then claim it was a 'cheat day'...

    congrats on new job and finding a gym, i am happy for you. i wouldnt do any of the cf program though, just use their equipment.

    i hope you have enough common sense not to do those olymic lifts for reps.

    unless you are elite level athlete squatting 400 pounds+ you dont need "muscle confusion"
