Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Max power, and willing to compete to prove it, with aesthetics as a benefit, not the other way around. I never said bodybuilders are weak, I never said its easy, only that its not the same dynamic,...

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Look, I don't have a problem with differing opinions, especially in an area as subjective as any form of physical aesthetic or function, but if you're going to call names and tell me I'm an idiot, at...

That neither should be compared to Sandow.

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Dude, not a single one of you has actually addressed my thesis. All you have to do is compile a significant list of BBers who are also competitive power/weight lifters or strong man competitors....

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

I didn't finish reading this post earlier, because your first paragraph was off topic, but I see you later offered support for my thesis:Thanks!


See, after this post, I'm not sure why you're saying...

That sounds like the sort of idea that'll end up with a visit to a Tijuana jail.

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

I read your post, but without knowing your body weight and the rep ranges you're discussing, it's hard to judge relative strength. There have been posts on this board in the past, basically saying...

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Sweet, you pointed out a few 1%ers. But you also included Frank Zane, who was lighter than Sandow, even though he was taller, and who was notorious for his light lifts.

You can keep talking in...

In the Colonies, a whiskey sour is just that, whiskey & sour.

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

If you can't see the similarity between that quote and my statement of Sandow training for power, then you're not discussing the same topic.

Drew, I compared Sandow and his methods to current trends...

-comparisons of volume
-the difference in aesthetic...

Ok, now it sounds like someone's going to have to start the whole average CF box goer vs Games competitor, runner vs olympic runner, but it won't be me. I stand by my statement that what Sandow...

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Nah, just because you're upset because the bodybuilding trend isn't defined by the top 1% of the sport doesn't mean I'm wrong, it just means you're blindly defending the masses.

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

You're using anecdotal examples to try and prove that 99.9% of the people who 'bodybuild' are strong and work hard? Yes, there are people that work hard, but the programing Sandow wrote or advocated...

Re: Crossfit vs. Bodybuilding

Ugh, I hate the comparisons between the old strength men and modern body building. Guys like Sandow, Maxick, and the Saxons were strength athletes, who got ripped and strong as hell by lifting as...

Re: Marijuana effects on the body

It seems like multiple posters are going out of their way to try and convince others as a way of convincing themselves.

BTW, there are multiple ways of injesting THC that don't include smoke.

Re: Seen in Public today
