This is some Starbucks drinking, Uggs wearing, pumpkin spice snorting, Jadyden Kaidyn and Brandon raising, CrossFit doing, wine sample buzzing, astrology reading ass idea.
Are you tracking every single thing you’re eating? Are you eating that many calories every single day for weeks now? I find it hard to believe anyone active isn’t losing weight on 1300kcals. It’s a lot easier than you’d think to offset a weeks deficit with a couple cheat meals on the weekend. I would suggest finding your tdee (tdeecalculator.net) and weighing everything if you’re not already. And know that weight loss takes a while. One pound per week on average is recommended and sustainable. You don’t have to stop CrossFit to lose weight. If anything you can add a walk to your day as some cardio.
I think primarily it comes from customers and our own team, including our gym members at our gym (Anvil Gym in Iowa and Ghost Gym Miami). Most fitness/lifting things have already been designed in general but we try hard to come up with solutions for inherent problems, improve quality and customization etc. We do rely on pro lifters and meet directors for input as well. Aside from CrossFit, there really hasn’t big a big revolution in fitness in forever and I really don’t expect one to CrossFit level anytime soon. But we want to continue to innovate and create extremely high quality equipment and fill out our line to become a more complete equipment source.
Once in a while you need to do an insane WOD, this is it! 1. 100 Jumping Jacks 2. 050 Tricep Push-ups 3. 100 Hang Clean Jerks 4. 050 CrossFit Burpees 5. 100 Swings 6. 050 Squat Thrusters **450 reps in total FOR TIME!** A video of this insanity can be found here [https://youtu.be/N2m\_Rc\_-dW4](https://youtu.be/N2m_Rc_-dW4) **Completed the workout? Got questions?**
I found CrossFit programming is highly focused on strengthening our upper part, and the lower body part is more of strength & endurance training. As a female myself, I personally added 2-3 days lower body hypertrophy workouts into my routines. I think it’s the easiest way to visually balance out my physique.
She can't read, that's why. She's too busy wiping the sweat from her CrossFit training to see or read clearly.
Different goals for different people. I would guess majority of people actually get into crossfit to become aesthetically appealing and then move more towards the typical mantra that follows crossfit.
I got vivid dreams almost right away. Tingly fingers some hunger took at night though. You will take on water weight and be hungry mostly after 12 days. Not much time to grow muscle. That being said you will have much improved recovery. Your hair will grow faster, skin look better. I saw a boost in strength around a month in and definitely a good cardio boost. I'm not sure if it was from the better recovery or actual gains. I work out crossfit 6x a week and always throw in oly lifting, for reference. I stopped at around 6-7 weeks. Too many negative side effects for me
I think OP probably has a similar mentality of every who “stays” in a CrossFit gym. Everyone walks in the door for aesthetics. Everyone winds up being mostly performance driven, with aesthetics sometimes being a by-product of continuous activity, if your diet isn’t complete garbage. This is where CrossFit gets some of its cult like characteristics because most athletes have “transcended” beyond looks into a purely training mindset. But as you’ve mentioned, to be elite in any sport takes a metric ton of training, dedication and hard work. And I’ve seen CrossFit athletes who walk in the door after an all night drinking bender and try to pull a 225 clean and jerk. We all do unhealthy things.
Oh no, you are creating another crossfitter
I used to compete in a sport with weight categories and aboslutely destroyed myself with stupid weightcuts in my twenties (shoutout to my fellow grappling buddies lololol). I then switched to CrossFit in my thirties and wanted to get my eating habits and weight to a place I felt good about, but was always hesitant because of my history of disordered eating. After a lot of back and forth I decided to give the RP simple diet templates a go. They really helped me regulate my eating and get a better feeling for portion sizes. I never used them to cut, just stuck to maintenance/base diet and I've had great results. I feel fed and fueled for workouts and I've seen a considerable amount of positve body recompostion. If you can look past the "diet culture gimmicks" and approach macros without sweating the small stuff, I think the RP simple diet templates (or something similar) are a decent tool. It took me a couple of weeks to adjust but now its pretty much second nature. I dont feel like I'm restricting myself, eat pizza and have beers, and still see progress. No going to bed hungry or crying because because I ate a banana too much like back in the day. Main thing though is too not be too harsh with yourself... consistency is more important than perfection.
tldr: i want to get lean but i am only getting wider. what to do? stop crossfit? I know this is kind of stupid but i saw a similar post last week, where another poster wrote about how she didn't like how crossfit changed her body. i am kind of in a similar position here. i (28/f) really hate my body. one could say i have bdd but i feel it's justified. so long story short, i started crossfit about a year ago (minus a few months inbetween because of covid restirctions) to lose weight. i tried yoga and pilates and i've gotten the tip to start doing workouts with weights to effective reduce fat ratio. well it didn't but i've also gained weight. i know it is partly from getting stronger. i can feel the difference and crossfit gives me the only success i have in my life right now. but i am disguested of myself and MUST get thinner. should i switch to running for a while? or can i salvage this with even less calorie intake (i'm on 1300 now), or less protein? any tips?
Meanwhile at your local crossfit gym..
I wouldn't know because I'm not doing crossfit in my front yard on post while blasting Five Finger Death Punch through my Jeep's stock speakers.
Trans crossfitter here, it is harder but not impossible to put on muscle/get fitter than pre-estrogen days. In reality, the true limiting factor is consistency rather than no more testosterone. I’d also advise yoga/ a regular slow sustained stretching routine to combat soreness.
I feel like this would be even funnier if CrossFit wasn't shit
The average person stumbles along at 3mph. This is essentially a day hike. A sufficiently motivated person can make this in one day. If this is a true E&E then time is of the essence. The added benefit of a one day event is you don't have sleep fatigue. Most of the continental US has shelter every 10 miles or so. It can be a vehicle, a culvert, a bridge, a cattle shelter, etc. No need for a shelter. If you're paranoid, carry a 8x10 tarp. Assuming you treat it like a day hike you can carry what you need in a small internal frame backpack, including a rifle broken down depending on local laws. All in, with water (8x 4oz coast guard/datrex water pouches) for when filtering isn't an option it's going be about 23lbs if the rifle isn't too portly. Fairly easy to carry on your back if your hands are free. You don't need much food, a few Clif Builders Bars is enough. If you make this an 80 mile hike it gets a lot harder. You're going to end up making it a 3 day trip with a 25lb pack plus rifle in your hands. By day 3 you are more likely to meet resistance. You will have your 23-25lb pack, 19-27lb plate carrier, 4-9lb belt with sidearm, and a 6-9lb rifle. That's a lot of weight for a long time. The last 25 miles will feel like 100. Wear the plate carrier under something. It can be a Columbia rain jacket or for the ultimate deterrent a CrossFit connoisseur hoodie or sweatshirt or zip up. Most people will think it's a weight vest and avoid you like the plague. I recommend building a backpack and trying it out. It's the weight that is killer. Wear the plate carrier under something. The hard part of this is convincing yourself to spend money on ultralight gear you probably won't use unless you're into hiking.
Es buenismo MMA y BJJ. El 'precalentamiento de media hora' es como 10 veces peor que 2 hs de crossfit.
2 year old Ultraboost. Only ran like 100km in them. They still feel soft though. I did crossfit in them for around 50 hour or so.
I've just started Stronger by Science program: 3x IntMedium Bench, 3x Beginner Squat, and 3x MedVol Deadlift. All in all, I like the program, but there's one caveat: 1x15 EMOM set of deadlifts on the second day seems a very strange exercise to me. In my experience, doing more than 6 reps of deadlift per set is not a good idea (RDL is a different story, but I'm talking about 'regular' deadlifts now), and in case of an EMOM set, the high number of reps is getting even worse because of the time limit. I understand that crossfitters might like such a thing, but I'm doing powerlifting, so I actually consider substituting that EMOM set for someting else. Or am I missing something out, and EMOM can actually be beneficial when doing this program?
How many of you since starting CrossFit have found your eating habits deteriorate over time, obsession of tracking but then leading to binge eating. If you’ve been through this, how did you combat it and tackle the urges/struggles?
It's vacation time again, which means that after about a year of being away for my first year of college, I'm back at home again. Usually, that would mean that I'd be together with my entire family again, but it turns out that it's only gonna be the the two of us: me, and you, my older sister. Apparently, our parents wanted to go on a two-month cruise to celebrate their silver anniversary, and that's all good and well. On paper, this sounds like a good time for us. We have the house to ourselves, and I stay out of your way, and you try to ignore me as best as you can, which isn't exactly much of a hard task, really. I usually just stay in my room, playing games or reading, only going out for the bathroom or some food. Thing is, despite your more mature looks and position as the older sibling, you seem to have regressed to your teenage habits of bugging me at every possible opportunity. It also doesn't help that since mom and dad left, you've been wearing skimpier clothes, something they'll never allow you to do in their presence. Is this your late rebellious phase? It's not even that hot of a summer this year. Are you doing this on purpose? Do you just love to show off how much your body has changed since you started crossfit, reveling on the way my eyes can't help but wander whenever you knock on my door to complain about something or the other? Well, I don't care anymore. I've had enough, and I've got to do something. It's time I show you a couple of tricks I learned in college. \*\*\* There you were again on the couch, hogging the television, lying down without a care in the world. You looked so relaxed, so chill, so defenseless while you obliviously browse your phone. Jesus, that white crop top and short shorts that show off your toned thighs and midriff will be the death of me. Well, that's fine. I've got a plan to bring my paws closer to your smooth skin soon, and the first step starts right now. "Hey, sis!", I call out to you as I approach, pretending to be as casual as I could, "Look at this." I hold out my phone to you as you sit up, my butt taking up the spot that your head was just resting on. I don't know what you expected to see, maybe a meme or a short video, but I'm pretty sure that it isn't this. On my screen was a collection of collected and interconnected spirals of a myriad of colors, bouncing around and melting into one another, spinning around and around, slowly taking up the entirety of your vision and attention. "Don't look away, sis. Just focus on the spirals", I say. "Don't the spirals look good, sis? They're making you feel good, too. Looking at the spirals is putting you at ease. You're feeling the weight on your shoulders slowly disappear as you look deeper and deeper into them. Take deep breaths, sis. You feel your thoughts slow down and your body feel sluggish as you now focus on my voice. My voice, sis, the voice of your brother, the voice of your new master. From now on, you'll begin to call me sir, do you understand? Deep breaths, my pet. You're now master's dirty little pet. Listening to your master's voice makes you happy, and whatever master says must be right. Whatever master says, you have to follow. Whatever master wants, you have to give. What does master want? He wants you to show him his tits whenever he snaps his fingers. And whenever you do something for master, it feels good. Obeying master feels good because he owns you, and because he owns you, following him feels right. Master's touch brings you pleasure, and his praise makes it even more intense, and this pleasure is the kind you can't resist. And why would you resist? Master only wants you to feel good, so it's better if you just let master have his way with you. Whenever master says slumber, you'll fall back into the spirals again, sinking and sinking until all your thoughts are gone. When master says awaken, you swim back up, slowly recovering your consciousness consciousness, forgetting all but his orders. Do you understand, pet? Good girl." After giving my little speech, one that I've practiced and used a good number of times already, enough to be able to recite it off my head, I finally bring you back from the trance. "Awaken". And as you slowly regain your bearings, finally coherent enough to ask about what just happened, I issue you my first order by snapping my fingers. \*\*\* Hi, all. Hypno prompt again. This time, I want to experiment with a number of different triggers. The snap to show tits, maybe a couple trigger words for separate actions such as when I ask you who's a good girl, you immediately drop to all fours and pant like a bitch in the heat, or when I tell you to present, you go and drop anything you're doing to spread your legs for me and show me exactly what you have to offer, maybe even forcing you to stop all movement when I say freeze, unable to move nor react until I melt you, and a couple more ideas. If you want to roleplay, just send me a chat or DM saying I'm master's obedient slutty pet or some variation of the phrase. Of course, the sis backdrop could just be removed and you could just be my roommate or something else. Prompt's flexible, as per usual. Limits are excessive violence, bathroom stuff, and minors. Have a great day!
anything less than 70% is pretty much just a warmup for training weightlifters. and likely just as useful/less for crossfitters. 70-85% is where most training is often at besides between 80-90%. the bulgarians often didn't care about anything less than 85% and even the chinese don't seem to either from Ma Strength's book.
Hi! I can recommend you try contacting [Fran Pérez](https://franpereznutricion.com/) or [Miguel Ángel Florido](https://eatsmartlivebetter.com/). Both are focused in nutrition for people who do bodybuilding, powerlifting, weightlifting or CrossFit.
We did some renovations and now we're looking to replace some of our posters that hung around the box. We used to have the "meet the girls" poster and CrossFit Geelong's great posters. Would someone care to share what cool posters they liked in their box? Thanks!
given the nature of feroce fitness and she's coming off having a kid, i have seen a lot of women do fitness competitions after they recover from having a child it will likely help her reach for her brand hahah, OLAZ basically said the same thing I did before me. [https://www.reddit.com/r/crossfit/comments/ptbj1l/comment/hdv8qgb/?utm\_source=share&utm\_medium=web2x&context=3](https://www.reddit.com/r/crossfit/comments/ptbj1l/comment/hdv8qgb/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) given her gymnastics background, doing something like Pope is doing with a fitness routine might make sense but I'm not sure Camille hit the same level as Pope and competed through High School (never heard what level CLB hit. I think her twin sister might have been a gymnast as well)
Sure that sounds pretty reasonable to work in PnP. But also, is the way to access the divine different in different existences? You may be aware of them through the local populace, but you may need years of indoctrination to.. idk, become 'attuned' to the local divine instead of what you've lived with and known all your pre-adventuring life. Stupid analogy - crossfitter & bodybuilder doing pullups. If they only knew pullups as kipping or strict, they'd have to relearn the opposing techniques from scratch to get to a comparative skill level.
The founder of crossfit
This is just a general question because I programmed Linda for our gym this week. It is only the third time I have in four years, and we programmed an Iron Triathlon once as well. I honestly love these workouts but only plan them when I know our class load will be 1/3rd capacity at most (this time was a day after Murph). We have limited equipment so I would probably resort to sharing barbells and figuring out a solution but for these two workouts, that’s not ideal. I have just been wondering really. Both workouts require three barbells per person, a bench for each (though we had floor presses as an alternative), and there is a definite required proficiency in bench presses that often isn’t taught in gyms. (Generally, gym rats who join a CrossFit gym already have experience and so beginners usually have enough difficulty with push-ups that bench is too often slotted as an ‘advanced’ skill.
Vegan that does CrossFit? How can you be in two cults at once?
You belong to the CrossFit section
Judo, Eskrima, CrossFit, Gitarre spielen & Mountainbiken. Aber für alles zu wenig Zeit 😕
Authors of Uphill Athlete would disagree with you. They have a whole section where they compare the HR zones of someone with a lot of base aerobic training vs someone who does a lot of HIIT or CrossFit and explain why the former is better for ultra running. And I don’t know if I’ve ever seen someone who hikes as their primary form of exercise and thought of them as “leg heavy.” It’s not a good way to build mass. But I’ve definitely seen people who do CrossFit who have upper bodies that are far more developed than would be useful when running 100 miles.
Not that your box did the right thing, BUT a lot of regular crossfitters are complete idiots with chalk. We regular have barbells and dumbells left completely White from chalk and just put back in their places like that. Seeing expensive eleiko bars treated like that is heart breakening. Also bikes and rower handles are often chalked up. Most People could do what they do with 50% less chalk, and the same way as you always put plates and barbells back, ALWAYS scrub the bar after use and wipe the handles.
He's ready for the CrossFit games 💪😎🤜
No hice calistenia pero si muchos de CrossFit y varios de weighlifting: - ejercicios para calentar todos los grupos musculares tenés saltos a la soga, burpees, plancha ( normal y lateral). También podés aplicar un poco de trote, squats o junpimg jacks... Mi recomendación es que hagas dos tabatas ( 20 segundos de trabajo, 10 de descanso, eso por 8 rondas, es decir, 4 minutos) de todo eso, más sit ups para activar abdomen. - por partes: para calentar muñecas y hombros es recemdable practicar Snatch o fuerza de Snatch con un palo de escoba, si no sabes que es el Snatch podés hacer giros de muñecas y estirar antebrazos. -push ups con puños me parecen una paja, pero bue, primero práctica push ups, hacete un día de rutina para trabajar brazos en push, dónde hagas flexiones, manos abiertas, diamante, y finalmente con una mano, cuando hagas una cantidad presumible de flexiones a una mano diría que estás listo para hacer con puños sin quebrar muñecas ( cuidado con esto último, no te esforces de más que las muñecas no son joda) - para vertical....y práctica primero bisagra en trípode, trípode, de ahí pronta trípode en pared y fíjate si llegas a vertical, de ahí si podés, subir a vertical a la pared, después intenta irte separando de ella, después intenta vertical con alguien que te ayude a sostenerte y ahí ir aprendiendo a no pasarte de fuerza e irte a la verga. Perdón por el mucho texto, lo que te dije fue más una orientación general por si querés empezar a probar en tu casa o una plaza antes de meterte de lleno, sino si querés meterte de una a lo pro, averigua de gimnasios que se especialicen en eso. -Por último: a donde sea que vayas no te compares con otros, eso es una boludez, céntrate en vos y hace una competencia contra vos mismo. Espero que te haya servido, y suerte.
If he scales that as he gets older it’s no different than CrossFit.
I love the bike bootcamps!! I am really noticing toning over all in my body because of them! I used to do crossfit and the bootcamps give me more of a structured cardio and weight training workout.
Please don't take any of the advice you get here at face value, almost all of it seems genuinely terrible. It sounds like you need to work on yourself. I don't want l mean to sound harsh here but I'm guessing you've had a lot of trouble with girls in the past because you're dull and far too eager to please. What makes you stand out from your friends? Do any of your social events rely on you to organize them? If none of this applies to you then awesome, but if it does then you might need to do some introspection on what you need to change to make yourself someone women will make themselves available for. Either way I think you should join a gym, because you need to expand out your social circle so you can actually meet people. And I'm not talking a planet fatness or a golds or anything like that, but one that's a little more out there and has instructor led classes. Those tend to have tighter communities where you can actually get to know each other. Go for something like rock climbing or (Allah forgive me) crossfit 🤮🤮🤮. Avoid things like spin or zumba, you don't want to be that one creepy guy in a class full of girls. Go play nice with whatever guys you make friends with through whatever hobby you take up, and you should just start naturally meeting more women.
I joined a CrossFit gym. Workouts are always different and love that a coach does the programming. I just show up to class and do what I’m told. It’s a great community with folks of all ages and abilities.
We would love to chat with you! 🥰 kik us @crossfitlvr
>I’m not really into the idea of being recorded while I’m trying to focus on a workout, even as part of a group. Thoughts? Am I just being uptight? It's definitely super common. As a potential client - I love it. I can scope out gyms/classes - see how big classes are, see what sort of diversity/demographics there are, see how it all looks etc. One of the big things that made me confident to sign up with my current Crossfit gym was seeing people on their IG stories doing box step ups instead of box jumps and other modifications. Made me feel that it would be "okay" to show up and not be amazing at everything. As a person in the class - if you're not comfortable with it then just say something beforehand so that they know not to capture you.
First off- know this feeling doesn’t last forever! Rest of you need. Complete easy exercises like yoga, walking, cycling based on how you feel. I used to CrossFit 3-4x a week and had to stop. Was lucky if I got 1 in a week for a bit, but I did push myself to walk the dog a lot. Now I’m back in my gym 4x a week and feel great! You will most likely feel better at the end of your first trimester, just do what you can til then and don’t be too hard on yourself!
It would be like sitting next to a vegan, or someone who does crossfit.... They would let EVERYONE know their opinions.... (Before you vegans, or crossfitters get all froggy, calm down I'm just teasing, at least your choices can actually be backed up by some science, and not just scienticians on FB)
CrossFit before it was CrossFit
Former HIT coach here (yes, some crossfit, I was young). It is absolutely unsettling the switch that some people can throw. The difference between the freaks some of my favorite students become, and their normal selves, is mind boggling. I can't reveal to much about the dude, but he had *the most* unassuming occupation in the world. Think "librarian" and then double it levels of "no fucking way". Nicest guy in the world...an absolute psycho with a undefeatable battery when the clock was on. Like if just talking to this dude somehow gave you Rhabdo, I would be like "yeah, that checks out." In. Sane. And then had that furnace inside him turned instantly and completely off when the clock ended/told him is time. In. Sane.
Not overweight guys pls. Craigrichey19 no face no add
Depending on how old you're looking for and how loosely you use "competition," the Rogue vs Again Faster series is a classic most crossfitters dont seem to know about. An interesting look into the older days of CrossFit and its progression
Is this a CrossFit thing? Shaming members on Instagram and social media? My box has done that a few times where they post pictures of one dumbbell left on the floor on the social media and make it into a big deal. Personally, I do my best to clean up and be courteous however, my box costs around $200 a month. I don’t think I would enjoy being chalk-shamed.
Most ultra runners barely tap their aerobic thresholds and not for long when they do. CrossFit does build aerobic strength. I’d take the well balanced athlete over the leg heavy hiker any day.
