What do you think about the BS in the post above yours?
I don't think it's BS, Crossfit isn't bad. The problem I had with crossfit is that your routine is based on the WOD that someone else chooses... if it's not one you're into it's easy to take the day off or lose motivation. Also, some of the WOD don't take very long so I was inclined to do extra afterward... which I guess is ok.
I hear you on the WOD. For now, the next month anyway, I'm ok with doing whatever is prescribed, but I think once Mid Feb rolls around I'm going to want tailor the WOD specifically for my goals. The one thing I'm noticing is the lack of lateral movement exercises. I have been incorporating them into the warmup. I like the fact some are short, but still intense. However, it feels a little like cheating. I think it's just a matter of upping the warmup.
Once the season kicks off my days and weeks aren't going to allow for Crossfit. Which is ok, I want to be better at disc golf, not Crossfit.
The BIG thing about crossfit is I see ALOT of bad form. Pumping out 75 of anything and you're going to have some bad form. I have zero time to be injured, so I'm being pretty cautious. Right now I'm doing everything at home, but worry about going to a box and having to keep up with the group. We will see, I'm going to give DM Crossfit $100 for 12 sessions and go from there.
BTW, Russian Kettlebell throws HAVE to be GREAT for putting.
