  • How are new skills/exercises taught in a class ? November 27, 2021
    Most CF gyms in my area offer some kind of beginner classes. I assume there is no way they can teach you every movement you will encounter, so what happens when you turn up or a workout one day and it has movements you have never seen or done? How are you integrated in to […]
  • Stimulus or weight? November 27, 2021
    Been doing CF for a little over a year now and have made some really good gains, by simply showing up and hitting the WOD and am easily in the best shape of my life. But I’m a lifelong “hard gainer” (6ft 165lbs) and strength is a massive limiting factor in workouts. I have all […]
  • N00b here w some Qs. Is CrossFit designed around classes only? Im just not seeing a lot of DIY templates out there. November 26, 2021
    50 yoa lifter. I work out 5-6 days a week, alternating between heavy barbell work and running. Lately I’ve been interested in cycling thru circuit work with Kettlebells instead. I like the compound lifts and the focus on movement under weight. CF seems like it’d make for an ideal home workout with KBs. But how […]
  • Body image/performance struggles: who else can relate? November 26, 2021
    34M here, been doing CrossFit for 3 and a half years and it’s been one of the best things I have done in my life. Used to be pretty heavy and out of shape (almost hit 200lbs at 5’6”, now 165,) and not only lost that weight but am lean to the point where I […]

  • How does the dyanmic Concept2 rower compare to the standard static one? November 26, 2021
    I have the opportunity to buy a used dynamic Concept 2 rower, at what I believe is a good price. However, I'm unsure how it compares to the static rower. Is it still an effective full body workout? Does it similarly retain its resale value? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you. submitted by /u/hello61 […]
  • Should I stick it out? November 26, 2021
    Hi folks, I joined CrossFit a few months ago now but I've not really made the most of it and I'm unsure what to do and looking for some advice. Bit of background, I was very into my fitness and had been doing weights at a normal gym on and off for a few years. […]
