I may misunderstand something in this competition. How can it be fair for smaller athlete to lift barbell?
SeIKo BLaCk DiVeR Hace un mes
@pinter123 Regarding to body weight, I think all athletes are equal, because they train based on their weight. It still seems unfair to me when it comes to free weight. Whether they are big or small, they all lift the same weight.
pinter123 Hace un mes
SeIKo BLaCk DiVeR they aren’t trying to set weight classes. It’s just about can you do the work. Those smaller guys are going to have advantages in other places like body weight and run or anything they are dragging their body. Then it’s intended to average out and find the best all round regardless of size.

Cross fit sucks

It should be based on pound for pound strength so you see a little different demographics involved
MasterYourBrain Hace 2 meses
Cian Dunphy lol no I mean the weight used for the lifts. Using a standard weight for the movement eliminates anyone really under 175-180 pounds because the strength to weight ratio is off. I would kill these movements but only weigh 155 and a snatch of 185 for sets is out of reach for me right now. But if they base it off of other wod’s that are used for CrossFit like .75% of body weight or some other metric you would see different types of competitors in these games.

I imagine that had to do with CrossFit pulling the plug on social media and TV contracts diffusing due to poor partnership with CrossFit. The unprofessional-ism of the company is profound. Then again, this is what happens when a bunch of gym rats get a massive following and don't have a proper corporate structure to handle it.

JustaRandomGuy Hace 2 meses
​@Vox Daze Do you honestly think that proves me wrong? Boxing isn't really a sport were genes matter the most, it's strategic too. Funny how if you look up the top 10 best boxers ever the blacks still dominate that list Black people dominate sports that include physical activity like running being the best example Usain Bolt running 100m in 9.58 seconds Eliud Kipchoge running a marathon in under 2 hours

SnifferSock have a look at the injury rate with CrossFit. It is actually less then many other sports such as strongman, powerlifting, running etc
Brendan Tomlinson
Brendan Tomlinson Hace 5 meses
Lol straight nonsense about CrossFit Games being dangerous. The only danger in this sport is that people cut corners on technique to get the work done (and letting a bunch of noobs into this competition for the sake of globalism). This isn't any different than Kevin Durant playing against the Raptors with a slight AC tear. It turned into a full one eventually. I'd like to know why the only arguement we have against CrossFit is that it's "dangeous" when we have more popular sports like UFC, NFL, NHL, Boxing...etc.... that cause far more injuries at a higher rate.

@Chris Hebner CrossFit is in a whole different league of dangerous compared to most sports...
kefkapalazzo1 Hace un año
Chris Hebner are you really trying to equivocate right now lmao you’re not supposed to do heavy compound movements for reps in the damn sun. This is with cardio pushed in and calisthenics. I saw one competition they had people doing squats I believe in a slick surface. And just because there’s stupid dangerous shit doesn’t mean anything. The NFL has to change a lot of rules for their players health. Even the NBA is finally league wide taking action on mental health.You don’t get it, and you need to stop
Chris Hebner
Chris Hebner Hace un año
kefkapalazzo1 dangerous is relative. It’s dangerous for me to enter a skateboard competition on a half pipe. It’s much less dangerous for a professional skateboarder. Is crossfit dangerous? Sure. So is baseball. So is football. So are many other sports. I’m not arguing that it doesn’t have its risks. But the risk drops significantly when your talking about professional athletes, the top crossfitters for example, versus less prepared, more inexperienced athletes.
