Rhabdo, Pukie.....

What's the point in competing internationally when you can go to Aromas, CA and have people pay to watch you vomit after a "wicked chipper" workout of light deadlifts, hammering fence posts, swinging a KB above your head, (because after all, who needs healthy shoulders?), spinning around on a whiffle ball bat, and drinking your own sweat before you pee yourself on camera so it can be posted on the internet?

Once you can offer what sounds like an intelligent answer, at least until someone listens to the actual words, in favor of the second option, then you'll have been conditioned psychologically so that you can begin your physical conditioning.

Its a good thing they got a picture of them circle cleaning their balls, and not circle jerking their balls.

Ah, I guess it's true, then. The internet is for porn.


Seriously weird porn, though . . .

When you win your next fight just be sure to give me credit for it.

The Chadgarian program is a revolutionary system, you lift heavy twice a day, squatting everyday you workout and alternating clean and jerks with snatches. Speaking of which I also invented the clean and jerk and the snatch.

It will probably make you tired as hell, but you can tell just how elite you are because no one else will be following the program but you.

225 for 15 reps resting only overhead, in the rack, or in the hang in a decent time does sound pretty intense, and that's the seductive thing about CrossFit: it sounds vaguely logical and it sounds like they're suggesting awesome stuff. Saying something awesome, though, is really cheap to do. All you have to do is string some words together and, bam, you've said something awesome. How many of the people at the CrossFit Games could do that feat? Probably could be counted on one hand.

Orlando or Lipson, but that might be giving anyone too much credit. They had an Olympic lifter with a 400lb CJ try it, he got like 12 if I recall?

that was Max McDormott? from @FFootball I believe. there is a huge difference between hard and effective. I too have fallen victim to the @F protocol for a while in the past, as fun and exciting as it was brief, all I really gained was diminished strength and skill, and probably a butt ton of anxiety

You need to couch that more in technical terms. Maybe

"Chadgarian programming is revolutionary. It's based on the metabolic leveraging of daily heavy squats. Combined with alternated clean and jerks and snatches you achieve a level of elite fitness thanks to the synergistic effect of the two lifts on your aerobic-anaerobic work capacity development."

That's got Chadgarian Level I Cert written all over it.

Hey, you can be elite by beating everybody, or be elite by just narrowing down the field. Either way.

Those two were on my mind - I've seen some of Orlando's strongman videos. I really don't know anything at all about anybody else associated with CrossFit, except that, as a result of this thread, I looked at the stats of some random competitors and confirmed that they would have no shot at all of making it.
