Compared to the average powerlifter they are average, but compared to the average person they are extremely strong. Not only that, but they are strong everywhere else, where the powerlifter is weak. 

To the average person, top tier Crossfitters are elite at EVERYTHING.  Compared to a someone who develops a certain set of fitness, they are average for that group, which is,  remarkable.

See, this is what I don't get about crossfit. With so many athletes being really even and some sightly better than the others in certain aspect it is really easy to "skew" the results by creating workouts slightly more suited for one athlete. I think they had put events where Froning would suck in the beginning on purpose to create "drama". At the very end they have thrown events in which they knew he would excel.

I think there is too much room for politics there.

Sev's poster or the OP?

Take a blind guess. Sev does not even look like he lifted barbell in his life, it could be some vegetarian seminar or scientologic bullshit but I would never figure out it has anything to do with physique development. And these clouds in the background, what the fuck with these clouds.

Why is it bodybuilders are always screaming that everyone uses? Could it be they need comfort in knowing they are nothing without drugs so they rationalize that anyone who is in shape is using. I have news for you. A person can get muscular from just working out without drugs. Maybe not the majority of drug using bodybuilders but there are athletes who can. This "sport" of bodybuilding is based on drug use. Get rid of the drugs and the whole subculture collapses. No Olympia, no expo, no magazines and most of the supplements will go away. No other sports don't revolve around drug use. You have cheaters but it isn't a drug centered like bodybuilding. Are there crossfitters who juice? Of course some do but there is no other sport in the world that has a drug obsession like bodybuilding.


hahahahhahahahahahhahAHA HAHAHAHHAAHHAAWDHASdhjka `er2e3e

I spitted diet soda on the screen of my Surface Pro reading this.

One question: have you ever competed in any strength sport on a national level? XD Or at least know any national level competitors in any strength sport?

I know olympic lifters, powerlifters... Compted in powerlifting. Behind the scenes all they talk about is drugs.

Your jaded view on cf has mislead you.

Pound for pound the top tier cross fitters are impressively strong

They are OK in olympic lifts, I give them that. But then again, I compare them to myself and I could never translate my raw strength to oly lifts. But in squats, deads and presses they are on the level of average powerlifter in their weight class. They are all around 200kg squat, give or take 20kg. This is good for an athlete but nothing supremely impressive.

Mind you, this guy ain't no weighlifter. He competes in bobsled.

I don't think he's juiced to the gills but he's mixing something...The thing about the bench press is it's harder to manipulate than say the squat or even the dead lift. My guess is Norton put a lot of time into his squat because he could use assorted devices and "tricks" if you will, to move the weight. In the bench press, he was left on an island.

hahahahah wat.

You have no idea what you are talking about. There are NO tricks in deadlift. Sumo stance is not a trick, it is better suited for some people, worse for others. Also I have no idea what you mean by "assorted devices". This is RAW meet. RAW.

In bench press there are TONS of tricks. Work on lower back and abs flexibility, better arch = bigger bench. Wider grip = bigger bench, if you have strong pecs, that is.

In squat there are no tricks as well. You HAVE to hit the depth. I would not be able to squat the way he does. I don't use my back as much in squat simply because my quads are stronger. He leans forward because he is back dominant.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG6E6n_W5v8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BG6E6n_W5v8</a>

This is perfect example of extremely quad dominant powerlifter. High bar or close to high bar position and his back stays vertical throghout the lift. His deadlift is 100kg worse than his squat. This is usual for assisted lifts but for RAW lifter it is HIGHLY unusual. It means that his core is strong enough to maintain his position with this kind of weight, his quads are extremely strong but his lower back is not strong enough to pull that kind of weight off the floor.

Norton has long arms, long legs, short torso. Naturally good deadlift, good squat once you learn to use your hip joint more than your knee joint during the lift. Shitty bench.

I've got 140kg bench, 190kg squat, 220kg deadlift. 75kg class. Short arms, long legs, short torso but I am a midget overall. So good bench, good squat (quad dominant) and weak deadlift for me.

In some jurisdictions in the US, the fact that he is a trained fighter would work against him as his personal definition of "reasonable" would be lower. Retardation.

Same here, AFAIK.

MMA fighter would go to prison for 10 years at least in Poland. We have this retarded law that says your defense should be "adequate" to the attack, whatever the fuck that means. It's pretty much open to interpretation and jurisdiction is slightly moving towards letting people to do more nad more in their defense but still, the very idea that one could "measure" how much danger you are in is moronic.

Dude, it's really apparent. It doesn't take phd in psychology to figure this out.

I always admired this guy, even more after I heard how liberal Hollywood c*nts brushed him off.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dan Bilzerian Howard Stern Interview on: July 26, 2014, 11:21:31 AM
If his life was as cool as he is trying to project it on facebook and instagram he wouldn't be such an attention whore and we wouldn't even fucking know he existed. I get it, seldom jokes and trolling about your income with your friends is fine. You may be perceived as a pompous douche bag if you push too hard but that's OK. But shit, this guy is a fucking nut case.

Of course I wish I had his money. I wouldn't even give a fuck if I earned it or inherited it. But from my limited experience the more you want to be seen as "happy" the worse you are "inside". And shit, in this case it must be something really serious.

Cmon, if he was doing squats... I get it. But fucking machine curls? SERIOUSLY? Hahhahahahahaha
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jason Blaha 17.25 inch arms on: July 26, 2014, 08:13:57 AM
He's got Ménière's disease. Not sure how that affects his lifts or physique but OK. Also 1300lbs total is PATHETIC for a 220lbs lifter, especially considering the fact that it's in non-IPF sanctioned lift, monolift and non-stiff barbell. I've got around 1200-1220-ish total @ 167lbs and it's still average. Anything under 1400lbs in 180lbs+ class is shitty total.

It turns lifting weights into an epic gladiatorial battle between the forces of good and evil. Cheesy

Yes, like you have accomplished anything in your life of even such small magnitude. I bet 95% of morons here don't even have bachelors degree, let alone phd in any respectable field. And he is fucking strong. Like you know, best in USA in his weight class strong.

So yeah, keep on posting that sarcastic shit.

I don't believe they come off. Get on TRT dose and you will be fine T:E ratio-wise.

Remember as a kid i got this Thomas saltzer Chemistry kit for Xmas.. I did like the Microscope.. but did not know what the fuck i was doing Grin Still...lucky i never swallowed some of the chemicals.  



Shit man, I remember that, it was called "zestaw malego chemika" which means something like "chemistry set for kids". That was THE BOMB back then. I remember begging my father to buy me this but he thought it was juvenile and stupid. He bought me real microscope instead Wink

Why do you think you need to hide it from her? Why not explain to her that when you feel better, she also benefits?

Well, what if you dumb the whore and she decides to inform police that you are major drug dealer in return? They go through your shit and find gear and boom, you are in major trouble.

Of course this only applies in countries where posession of gear is illegal.

You are twisted, insecure, crazy weirdo Sev and posts where you attack those who dare to say anything negative about your work clearly show that. Personally I stopped taking you seriously long time ago, mostly due to your posts concerning reptilians, aliens and that kind of shit.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Suffering - Being shredded is for those that want to be miserable on: July 16, 2014, 06:02:32 AM
What is the point of dieting for a show when you don't have any muscles? Does he even bench 100kg or squat 140kg? It won't happen overnight, if he is skinny little shrimp now he won't get bigger in a matter of weeks.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Suffering - Being shredded is for those that want to be miserable on: July 16, 2014, 03:09:17 AM
Radu 7 weeks out

Looks small and weak, how about more calories, more carbs? Because whatever you're doing clearly isn't working.

The Germans are going to roll over Argentina like they did Poland in 1942.... Grin

1942? Please, brief me, what exactly happened in 1942? WW2 started in 1939. Warsaw Uprising - 1944. Just so you know.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: World Cup Soccer - Who Will Win? on: July 09, 2014, 08:10:59 AM
There was no Brazilian "team" to speak of. Just 10 players running around like fools, playing in their "spectacular", cocky sort of way until they got their asses handed to them.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: World Cup Soccer - Who Will Win? on: July 09, 2014, 08:05:55 AM
Do you guys remember the story about referee stabbing other player and getting quartered by mad players and fans DURING the game? I hope no harm comes to German players but they are in serious danger right now.

In the UK, its illegal to sell but legal to take. So you can openly admit to using juice without any concern of getting into trouble with the law.
I remember Van Bilderass and Mensa Bob saying how ridiculously intolerant Sweden is towards steroid use.

Well, I heard horror stories about strongman competitors being chased by police for posession or people going to jail just because they failed drug test. It baffles me every time one intelligent, sane person destroys other person's life just because he did something "wrong" with his body. Same country where muslims and gays are tolerated to the point where nurses can't call parents "mother" and "father" but "male protector" or some other shit just because it "discriminates" gay people... Because gay people can do whatever they want with their bodies but bodybuilders don't. Come to think of it, given how many of us have tight bonds with gay community we should use that as leverage to legalize steroids. Like, you know, steroids are used to please schmoes so if you ban them you discriminate gay schmoes.
