Crossfitters in the house?

I'm at Crossfit DuPage (North Ave and Main St. Lombard) at least twice if not three times a week.

I am a huge fan of cross fit and have started a thread about it. I am an active member @ Bulldog Crossfit in Forest Park (North of Cermak between Des Plaines and Harlem)

I just did the 9/11 throw down today. It was a great workout and very rewarding to finish.

I thought it doesn't cost anything. You go onto the crossift website, there's a workout of the day, and you follow that... I know there's gyms around, but crossfit itself, you don't have to join a certain gym to do it.

Great stuff. My coworker's brother runs a gym in Chicago, and I know a few friends in pd that swear by it

Crossfit in general or the 9/11 workout?

Crossfit in general costs approx 10~15 dollars a class
I pay 160 a month for an unlimited membership.

The 9/11 workout isnt designed for those that don't have Crossfit experience as it requires movement patterns that require some training and Practice

If you feel comfortable with the movements listed regardless of the weights (those can be scaled to your ability) and are interested in participating I encourage you to call bulldog cross fit tomorrow morning around 8 am
I don't know what it costs for non members. I do know it is for charity so what ever charged is passed on to an appropriate charity.

You are correct
The wod (workout of the day) is posted and if you are familiar with all of the movement patterns can be done with almost no equipment in a fairly small space.

However fi the movements are new to you than I encourage you to look for a Crossfit box (gym)

Thank you!

Expensive as heck though, family membership at Lifetime costs much less and I every few weeks I can convince some milf to jack me off in the hottubs.

These are great workouts for overall conditioning, strength, flexibility, and endurance. If you are not training for any sport in particular, this is a great way to stay/get in shape.

I agree.

I know a lot of people who do crossfit and they love it. I'm usually working out for something specific so never really got into it.

I'm a huge fan and getting my garage set up for WODs, all I really need to finish is a plyo box and some plates and weight bar. I've incorporated CF into my regular lifting and have noticed a big difference. I'm down 14 lbs since April while gaining strength in just about every power lift. But damn if overhead squats and muscle-ups are still a work in progress.

I assume you are kidding. If you are not, than you are just a complete dick.

This is to remember the fallen. The charity that is collected goes to a charity that is for the first responders and the family's of those responders that gave everything.

I just think its tasteless to use a death count for an exercise. There are more respectful ways to name exercises.


And they already have a first responders charity.

so instead of donating money, time, or any effort of any kind, you would rather belittle the effort of those that do?


Did you go to Afghanistan for 10 years? If you did maybe they will take you back. I doubt it however; nobody wants you here, but you insist on coming back.

If you can't add anything constructive please stay out of my threads.

i can tell you are a liberal just by that question. The ones that all liberals type. Making up things that were never said in question.

oh btw, I'll answer your question

"NO"


Quote:

another liberal tactic. Repeating the question instead of answering it.

As an American, you posting up exercises that refers to a death count of American citizens is sick and tasteless. And I'm sure other people feel the same way too.

So quote me where I typed helping rescue workers is bad? you can't can you?


You must be born yesterday too, when you don't think people are profitting of off 9/11. Hence, my reason to donate to the original charities or red cross.

would a regimen such as crossfit (or any strength training) help with your back?

several people at my gym have started using these and the New Balence Minimus shoes.

I went there to see and while I was in pain for days, any kind of Core Strength training will help to take the strain off the lower back

I was planning on going to pick up a pair of the Minimus after work today because I've heard/read such good things about them.

The one thing that people complain about is how slippery they are to run in when wet.
