Crossfit's biggest fallacy: It's super hard, so it gives super results. No no no no.

Just because you bodybuild or powerlift don't assume you are in condition. Many couldn't run around a block without gassing. Top shelf cross fitters are in condition.

It reminds me of the two personal trainers at the local gym who were told by management it would be good for the gym if they entered the town 5k for charity. The talk was they knew they couldn't win against real runners but it would look good for them to enter and finish with a decent time.  Both of these juiced mirror athletes looked like the picture of health with their muscles.  As the last 10% came shuffling in toward the finish line where all the chubby soccer moms were finishing was the body gods looking like they were a minute away from having a heart attack. I'm sure they lost a lot of clients.

do you honestly think olympic level weightlifter could run 5k without appearing to be a minute away from having a heart attack?

same way when you put a 315 barbell in front of a long distance runner they wont be able to deadlift it without appearing to be a minute away from a rectal prolapse

fat chicks and twinks on my facebook  really like sharing how they just 'demolished' the 'WOD', along with a photo of a broken nail or scrape on their shins to show how Hardcore they are.

for that alone I hate it

somehow crossfit brainwashes these losers into thinking snatching 200lbs with attrocious form is a vastly superior performance to benching 315 with good form

we sometimes have a few guys come to the gym i go to who love to do high rep cleans and often clean and presses. always make completely over the top loud noises and yell and use 0 legs in the entire lift with a shitty weight. better just to do some high rep squats if u want a good cardio workout. high rep squats are awesome and kill ur lungs.

I really enjoy bodybuilding and have gotten into the CrossFit sport aspect and really enjoy it, so I'm biased.

It's funny to hear "bodybuilders" complain about CrossFit, it's two completely separate things, one is not like the other.  On top of that, complaining about form?  Go to any gym, CrossFit or Global or Local, and take a gander around the barbell area.  There's bad form with nearly everyone.  In fact, it's so bad that when I, and I'd imagine most serious lifters, see good form it stands out.  To knock a sport because some people who follow it have bad form is ignorance.

CF preaches FORM FORM FORM, over and over again, as well as mobility.

Spot fucking on.

I heard this gem in the locker room the other day, "If you're really good at CrossFit you're probably really good at most other sports too."  Roll Eyes

 Actually, there are a few of us that really can run half marathons and deadlift over 300lbs but it has taken a lot of conditioning to get there.
 
 Crossfit, meh. Just run, lift, do pushups and chinups and quit fuckin complicating everything.

You are arguing my point. The topic is crossfit and how many of the posts by bodybuilders and powerlifters are putting it down.  Most top crossfitters could run a decent 5k and easily deadlift 315lbs. Being in condition is such an important part of being in shape.

but neither running 5 k nor deadlifting 315 are remotely impressive

Anyone can run a 5k. It's a matter of time. Quite a difference between an 18 minute and a 30 minute 5K. Yes 315 isn't impressive either. Just making the point with the weight that was given by you.
