Bro at the gym came out today as a weekend crossfitter. Invited me to go crossfit with him this weekend. Tried to sell it with, "Dude, it's the only workout that's really kicked my ass."

Like that's a fucking selling point. I like my workouts to be 2 hours long, slow paced, and be comfortable enough to chat it up with the boys and check out the cardio bunnies. Fuck you and your 45 minutes of wanting-to-kill-yourself workouts.

Crossfit is like the Primerica of fitness

In fact, I salute them for creating a successful model that didn't involve referral fees.

In any case, nelsonhaha.png

The problem was FILA's lack of compliance with IOC requests to make the sports more entertaining. The IOC is right. Current freestyle and Greco scoring encourages passivity rather than action: score a one point takedown, lie on the other guy for 15 seconds, restart and look like you are wrestling for the time so you can take the period. College is worse when you throw in riding time. A lot of 1-0 victories because one guy kept a guy down longer than the other.

It's pretty much unwatchable to me, as someone who doesn't know the rules.
post #33818 of 49510
Wrestling changes so far include winning by accumulated points instead of by periods, two three-minute periods instead of three two-minute periods, stricter rules for passivity, and takedowns worth 2 points instead of just 1.

The takedown and accumulated points rules are good since they make sense (most points win) and are more like folkstyle.

Edit: I'm glad they didn't get rid of the singlet. There was talk of going with fighter shorts and compression tops.

Despite being uncomfortably snug on me, I like my Power Perfect 2's. I don't use them for back squats though, even though I can lift more, I feel like the heel lift is a crutch that isn't going to help my mobility.
post #33822 of 49510
Do you really need amazing mobility if you're not going to be doing olympic lifts though?

Even beyond that, is it really possible to increase ankle mobility?

This is an olympic lifter so you'd assume his mobility would be as good as he could possibly be after years of lifting for a young age, but he's pretty much wearing high heels. I assume that's to compensate for (relatively) poor ankle mobility.

I think there's a limit that's different for everyone of how much mobility they can attain; for example my daughter can squat atg with a v.upright torso because she has awesome hip + ankle mobility and because her proportions make it easy for her, while I on the other hand have awesome ankle mobility yet average-low hip mobility meaning I lean forward a lot when I squat.

People say you can get better ankle mobility by stretching your calves but I've never seen a difference.

I agree with this. There is a mechanical impingement that prevents further mobility.

Besides, you shouldn't be bending your ankles that much when you squat.
