      You said none near you offer this, I could have posted links to all the gyms in my area that did and you would have just still said none near you did. So by actually going and showing you that specifically ones in your area do that was now wrong.

      Didn't ask for your help or anyone elses..

      Fact is you were wrong, they do offer it.

      If we can't assume that they don't practice what they have on their website then we can't assume that they practice the CF programming either.

      You are just the type of smug ahole that needs a good punch in the face to bring you back to reality.

      You may as well just post blah, blah, blah, blah until this thread gets locked.

      I always do push-ups in the middle of a crowded bar. Right before slamming a Zima and puking in the urinal of course.

      It's weird that you can do pushups in a bar without someone kicking your ass.

      I couldn't make this **** up, but we are on a meeting at work right now and one of our sales guys hobbeled in on crutches because he tore his quad last week after starting CF. He posted pics a couple weeks ago to get some guys motivated at one of our sales meetings of him training.

      I can explain this...

      I tried CF for a nearly two months, just because I finally had the free time and a group of people who wanted me to start with them. After being taught how to do olympic lifts, all of which I am proficient in, incorrectly... and coming in near the top of the board frequently... I quit. There's no reason I should have had the energy or strength to go do a CF workout and then stop at the gym on the way home to do a real workout.

      I also declined doing anything retarded like deadlifts/cleans/etc. for reps.

      More boxes + less quality control = more injuries

      If you need to get motivated and that is what you need- I would recommend getting the workouts down and then GTFO. HIIT isn't that hard to learn and figure out on your own, without the ego centric attitude to accompany it.

      Very cool discussion are going on aboveReally the only people that don't hate crossfitters are the crossfitters themselves and I'm not convinced that they don't really hate each other. It's a cult and a dangerous one mentally and for some, physically.
