I used to hate CrossFit. But recently I've started to really enjoy that type of training, I think it just has an element of athleticism that bodybuilding doesn't.

On the flip side, why would bodybuilders be bothered about athleticism, it's about packing as much muscle on as possible.

Personally, I like to be athletic. I don't see how saying 'I follow bodybuilding' should automatically equate to me being musclebound and unfit.

All throughout my competitive career, I maintained a high degree of flexibility and fitness, even while training as a bodybuilder.

I have nothing against crossfit... but, personally, I don't like how it separates fitness into 'them' and 'us'.

I also don't automatically agree that the average crossfitter is more fit than the average bodybuilder.

Advanced crossfitter v.s. Elite bodybuilder is a different story though... cus an IFBB pro, Kai Green aside, can hardly wipe his own ass IMHO.

I feel like crossfit truly captures the type of working out I've always wanted to do.
Pro's: Its varied, challenging, can involve other people, dynamically progressive and fun.
Cons: Expensive as hell and I've seen some of the craziest form in some videos.

Its something I would like to do, but I'll have to do it by myself in a park. The cost over here is a little ridiculous.

p.s. I have to say though.. I like the way the crossfit athletes look in general, they tend to be bigger and more 'human' than bodybuilders/figure athletes at competition.

My fav of all time Elisabeth Akinwale :

I had this conversation with someone about this the other day I think of cross fit a little like fad diets but also I don't get the point its just reinventing the wheel. I feel like its just another product of the world we live in people wanna be entertained and join the latest fad. What gets me is cross fit says its working out for the real world ....what a bunch of bs your gonna tell me if I can squat 400lbs I can't climb a damn latter shiiiiiiat

I think crossfit is good training but they basically just took the way wrestlers and mma fighters train and made it popular.

Now with people like Orlando and his strongmanWODs etc I think "crossfit" has become so broad as to not even be definable anymore.

The thing that turns me off from crossfit is the elitism and bullshitery cranked out by the HQ. Building muscle better than bodybuilding, building strength better than powerlifting, yeah right . That seems to be mostly Glassmans ego speaking through his ass though.

I love that crossfit has made weight training popular for women, has shown that women can look good with some muscle and that it has made olympic weightlifting more popular again.

Johan I agree BTW is that u in your avatar? If so congrads I'm not sure what's more impressive the squat weight or the fact that you can squat without a mirror. Lol I know that sounds funny but litter ally every time I squat without a mirrow I have balance issues idk why haha

Thanks mate, its me all right :) It's only 140 kg on the bar though.

Funnily I am the exact opposite with mirrors, I like to focus my eyes on one spot on the wall and keep it in my eyesight the entire time. If I have a mirror in front of me it really screws my concentration and distracts me completely. If I try to clean or snatch in front of a mirror its even worse.
