You can't help nor should you care what they think Frances.

I tend to keep my shirt on but I have taken it off in the heat of the summer, I felt a lot cooler (as in temperature) when I did.

Re: Why do people dislike Cross Fit?

I think many crossfitters who were athletes as a youth understand the desire to work out shirtless or in a sports bra. Most cheerleaders do in their cheer gyms as they rarely have AC in their nonventilated industrial space gyms that are tiny.

However, some people who never were athletes take issue with it. Or modest or fat people do. It varies.

If your gym doesn't have good air flow or some big ole fans or airco, taking your shirt off is the easiest way to cool off besides dumping water on yourself.


Discrediting mainstream science is funny when they bring others who spout Science as SubjectMatterExperts or when Glassman had his dad, a well noted scientist write or comment. Louie is always spouting off Russian sports science.

One of the coaches I worked with recently had a funny notion about most American Sports Science and would say "you Americans are sometimes 10 to 50 years behind the Russians". Very rarely would he see any research being done that he found new or interesting or would just counter on whatever I would bring him and explain it better. He trained in the Ukraine and had some experience in training in Russia as well as a kid.

To note a lot of the sports science being done here in the States is done with untrained participants versus elite athletes.

Re: Why do people dislike Cross Fit?

Honestly who cares if people workout with or without a shirt on! This shirtless thing is dumb! How could anyone dislike a sport because people go shirtless. I beat is some if not all the Pro CF women worked out shirt less you guys would not care as much? Get over it !

Re: Why do people dislike Cross Fit?

Honestly?
Because of arguments like this.
And arrogance.
And narrowmindedness.
And *********gery.


But that's in every sport.
Thing is that a lot of koolaid drinkers discredit and disrespect the hard work someone puts into their chosen specialty. And, koolaid drinkers scoff at the idea of someone else's goals.


Meh.

You do you. Stop worrying a tinker's damn about anything else.

Edit: I didn't realize I was looking at a post from a good 4 pages back.

Carry on.

If you think you're a badass for taking your shirt off, you aren't badass, and you probably are ridiculous.
