    He's not going to get busted for PED's.
    The only people who think he's natural are Crossfitters who are too wrapped up in their horde mentality to understand reality.
    Crossfit are the ones testing, and their testing regiment is bullshit, if they "catch" Froning (or Khalifa or any other of their major athletes who clearly use) then Crossfit are the only ones that are going to lose.
    Aside from that, hasn't he pulled in 1 million over the last 2 crossfit games? 500,000 at each?

    He's natty he once posted a video and he said steroids wouldn't even help for crossfit because he doesn't want to be big. You just don't want it as much as him hater.

    Charlie I squatted within 250lb of you for 6 today, coming at you.

    I know you're being sarcastic. I'm just saying.
    I feel like if you're job is based on being strong/lean/athletic etc then you're basically stupid not to take PED's. Crossfit is no different. The prize is half a million ffs.
    It's not like these guys are lifting stupid amounts or look ridiculously huge, all of their numbers/physiques are achievable natty. But in terms of putting it all together and the gains some of these guys make in 1 year along with the stupid amount of work they do PEDs would be a no brainer from a recovery standpoint.

    Not to mention theyre fucking sick. Lifting on high tren low test was an emotional journey and I always take this piss out of people who say that. Basically crying whilst squatting, shit is intense.

    Found one of my flat mates gross clothes in my laundry pile, threw them out of the window lel fuck him.

    I was so happy recently. A few months ago I decided to move out of my flat because it's a bit shit and because I hate the flat mate whose clothes I threw out the window. Basically in the UK if your a student you need someone with a fairly high income who lives in the UK to guarantee the flat. They're german and polish so they're parents aren't in the UK. I was very upset when one of our friends said he'd move in because his parents could guarantee the flat and part of the reason I moved out was to fuck them over. Luckily he's dropped out like 1 week before we're supposed to move and the one I don't like has gone on holiday so now he's going to come back and have like 2 days to find somewhere to live. His gf was crying, so much validation man it's all worth it. Also new flat has a really cool Issey Miyake poster

    Not really a flat, basically a house, look at that kitchen mang. Even got a garden and I can basically see my uni from outside. Living with 2 americans girls i've never met, one is chub other is kind of fit and from the same county in NJ I go to stay occasionally.

    I think this is good for all strength sports. With non-stick-ball sports becoming larger markets, it will make business sense to cater to these markets. More products, more media coverage, more sponsorship. Already Crossfit has helped expand the market for barbells, plates/bumpers, weightlifting gear, etc.

    Also, Crossfit in and of itself isn't that silly. The fitness concept does work and is useful for a large population of people who have no sport-specific desires. What is silly about Crossfit are the cultish aspects, extremists, and poor trainers, but that is true for pretty much anything--sports, business, politics, etc. It just may be that Crossfit is/was a natural fit for people that associate with those characteristics, people who want to grab attention, do the hot new thing, and push boundaries. I tend to think that Crossfit's nonsense may have peaked, or will be peaking soon. I think a lot of people within the Crossfit community are starting to realize things may have gone too far, and with this sponsorship deal and others like it, there will be pressure to moderate the extreme elements. Of course, I could be wrong.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to die of an aortic dissection on this fun run on Friday but if not I could do after I finish work. Don't want any man anus though.

    There was a discussion about this a couple week ago (if not last week) and the concept behind CF is basically what elite sport and military training have been doing for years and years. I think a lot of the cultish aspect people attribute crossfit comes from people with no knowledge of it and people who need it to get of their ass, I have never experienced it.

    I don't think most of the games athletes actually do CF, Froning "disclosed" his program a while ago and to me it sounds more like rugby strength training than CF, but those guys are beasts, so it makes sense, also he works out twice a day, so his level of fitness should obtainable for anyone with the time and will.

    Rumor has it Nike is entering the Crossfit arena.

    There's too much money in it for companies not to do it.

    Google Jeff Galloway. He advocates a running plan with a short walk break every mile or so.
