Stephanie Cooperman has done what I was too lazy to do.
She wrote an article about the Crossfit Culture and the mentality that some people are willing to get fit even if it kills you . And she did a damn fine job of it.
So I am going to make his post required reading for all those wondering if Crossfit is just another routine workout program.
As my friend said when he sent me this article…
“Crossfit is just another Darwinian way of weeding out stupid people.” – Wishes to Remain Anonymous
I don’t know the first thing about Crossfit except, I’ve heard of it, I’ve heard a lot of people who speak highly of it and I would urge anybody who’s interested in it, to really read the site, to take it easy and follow the directions. I’ve got no experience with this particular program as being a bodybuilder of the 80′s, I’m more interested in how I look not how heavy a kettleball I can toss around or if I can pull some weight some distance on a metal sled.
The real issue is the many forms of self-destructive tendencies. It’s just disguised at ‘fitness’ in this case.
Getting Fit, Even if It Kills You
