Re: A Must Read - 70s Big Style!

It was a fairly good article. I think Justin hewed pretty close to a balanced look at CF. I agree with many of his conclusions, and understand how he came to many others.

I think the fact that this article came out right around the time FIT came out is interesting. I'd buy his book though.

Who knows? And for what it's worth, look at this site's Anthony Bainbridge, he is an active CFer and just pulled 640 lbs in a meet in the 165 lbs class. I knew Anthony way before he ever tried CrossFit and I can tell you his deadlift has gone up a lot since he has been practicing it. Not saying that is proof of anything, but an interesting fact.

In the end, the idea is hardly something to be concerned about in my book. If you look at the totality of CrossFit and what Mr. Glassman has generated that is one very small thing. Why worry about it?

The author of that article? Why would you buy a book from him?

Fit came out about 6 months ago, the article came out this past week.

Look, I know it's not by using conjugate method, but the guy has motivated lots of people to get stronger. He pushes every reader he has to compete at something, anything. Just because he writes a blog post on a very trending topic in the area of things he writes about doesn't mean he's trying to make a dime off it.

He runs sheiko and 531 at various points while squatting every day.

Where's the old chris? ;D. I miss your polarizing posts calling everyone out to get stronger

He raised $$$ for cancer and ended up cleaning 300lbs 31 times. After that he moved it down to 255, and finally 235 I think.


Squat clean by the way, or olympic cleans, not power cleans.

Interesting, I guess. But look at Anthony's log. He definitely isn't doing mainsite.
And why give so much attention to this one thing he said? Because Glassman's outlandish claim (if you don't mind my saying) about pulling 750lb and absolute resistance to changing/rewording what he has said kind of characterizes his public image. It is, from what I have seen/heard of him, more the trend than the exception for him to say and act that way.
Also, being the spokesman/founder of Crossfit, I think Glassman would be wise to do whatever he personally can to shed (at least somewhat) the image of "overly-zealous to the point of delusion and foolishness" that outsiders often see in the Crossfit crowd. To be honest, I think he kind of hurts the image of Crossfit.
I must admit though: the way business is seemingly booming for Crossfit right now, my statement doesn't really sit well... perhaps more people like his personality than I am guessing, in which case, keep on keeping on. But I'm not a big fan of the guy.

Right, but be also does CF. If you think about it, CF incorporates strength training. Does HQ not offer Olympic and powerlifting certs?
