Crossfit versus traditional weightlifting


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Crossfit versus traditional weightlifting within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Hey everyone I was in the process of deciding which gym I should join and wanted to see what your opinions are to this subject. I want to get back into shape again having been a couple years out of training and have seen the surge of crossfitters in the world who seem to be getting real good results. Would you recommend it? Or should I be lifting weights in the gym to build my way to that level of intensity?

    Re: Crossfit versus traditional weightlifting

    crossfit is expensive while a normal gym is way cheaper

    the advantage of crossfit is they are more lax with compound lifting, like cleans and jerks etc. a lot of gyms don't even let you deadlift cause meatheads break shit when they do

    also if you need peer pressure of doing group training xfit is actually advantageous and you will meet people that way.. it is more social..

    a gym is more put your ear buds in and go solo and talk to nobody

    personally a good quality gym (not planet fitness) is my preference

    There's no comparison really. I'd say if it's just 'being in shape' then crossfit (cough cough|) is fine

    Re: Crossfit versus traditional weightlifting

    Controversial response here:

    Crossfit is the answer to the following question:
    "What is the best way to get a newbie injured when they first start?"

    You are starting out after a few years: You lack the coordination needed. You don't have the necessary joint proprioception. Your joints have not been built up sufficiently.

    Yes, you can be successful and many are but injury rates are very high. Start with the basics and if you want to try it in 3-6 months, then go for it.
