What do you think of this crossfit video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=BDDyxXyf6UU
The lift, in theory, i suppose is actually legitimate.
However, the subjects in the video, in my opinion, have no reason to be doing this complicated lift. I see no functional benefit to this whatsoever. Not only that, this really is a display of gross negligence. If this happened in my gym, these “coaches” which I’m not entirely sure I saw anywhere in the video anyway, would be gone, and they better not ever list me as a reference! There is no way that someone didn’t get injured in this “charade”
This was like some kind of a circus. The injured dog just wandering off in the background in one segment of the video speaks volumes as far as an unsafe and unsecured lifting environment. No way this particular situation would ever have any base in reality with anything that I will ever be a part of, not ever.
Yes I saw it. My first question is Why? My second question is What’s the point?
Cross Fit is NOT a fitness program in my opinion. Cross Fit is a Competition, it thinks it’s a Sport and it’s a huge money maker.
What I found most distasteful was they way the “trainer” stood by, I also found the chiding by other patrons really obnoxious.
I cringe when people tell me they do “crossfit”
