Boxing vs Crossfit? - Page 5
Will you people please stop naming heavyweights as if that's some kind of counterpoint to the fact that 99% of boxers who've ever been competetive in a weight class didnt carry around much chub?
Op should take up boxing. It's a skill, nay, art that will improve your life in ways that go far beyond fitness. Just make sure you find a proper gym and trainers, not some kind of 24-hour-jazzercise knockoff.
Crossfit- at least the formula programmed on their webpage- may get you results for a month or two, or a bit more if you are detrained. After that, pushing through to the next level of athleticism requires a more focused brand of training than they offer.
From what I've heard, CrossFit is not the best Training method for longevity and health. Its the old circuit training from the 80's coming into fashion. Many high profile trainers that's been featured on Tim Ferris and The Joe Rogan show, talks badly about CrossFit. You'll excel at Crossfit if you're genetically gifted.
I would have done boxing if I were you. You'll also get the benefit of learning how to defend yourself which is always a great skill to have.
