Re: The argument over the merit of CF on bodybuilding.com

I tend to look at everything from a logical standpoint, why is it that bodybuilders always hold to the mantra of "getting big" or "mass"- the question you MUST consider is "what is fitness?" "why workout", when I hear bodybuilders or especially their blissful girlfriends talking about how in "shape" themselves or their boyfriend is, it is mindblowing, YOUR NOT IN SHAPE- your big, you can't turn around to wipe your a@# for godsake, how are you in shape??? Crossfit is general fitness like it says- I tend to equate bodybuilding to sport specific training, a marathoner and a bobybuilder are the same- training one dimension,

Whoooo! felt good to get that little rant of of my chest

They're not really that big from a total mass standpoint.

CF will pack on the pounds.. about as much to your optimal weight as possible. For many people that are/were underweight when they started it can be significant amounts, and they can look big at the end. But it's not going to be "BB huge."

Re: The argument over the merit of CF on bodybuilding.com

I actually found them to be pretty receptive, from my initial read. Sure, some had some cockiness, but they're were more than enough proponents of the CF methodology over there to fight the good fight. Even most of the initial naysayers seemed receptive to the idea that CF works, given our goals, just as we are accepting of the idea that BBing works for their stated goals.

A shiny little nugget of goodness, gleaned from the aforementioned discussion:

I thought that thread went pretty well. There's always a few idiots on the internet, but that's the nature of the beast.

You "best take" another look at about 90% of the Crossfit population. Despite what the "hierarchy of muscle building" in the FAQ may say, CrossFit is not superior to bodybuilding for pure hypertrophy.
