Well an old saying says that (for a regular person) every additional weight you carry may cause injuries and the best is to exercise using only your weight (but we know one has to add weights at some point to stimulate muscle hypertrophy).
I myself would not go for crossfit at all - there are much better tools (safer as well) for specific goals than crossfit. I was taught differently to what crossfit is nowadays. What I excercise is not who I am, it's who I am is what I do and why I'm healthy - it comes from within and don't need a class or others as well. In the end of the day everybody is different, I'm not judging you and if you've done your trials and crossfit works for you then by all means continue but please be careful with it and use proper technique

May I ask what is your current dietary plan?

cheers
Chris

dietary plan is 40% carbs, 30% protein 30% fats rotating in higher carbs or higher protein depending on the day.

crossfit is basically HIT with gymnastic and weightlifting. It's not new...but now it's a brand. football, rugby, hockey, etc. have been using this style of workouts for decades. I say crossfit so it's easy for people to understand how I train. What I'm really doing is powerlifting, weightlifting with HIT circuits. I also run ( just did a 10.2 mile trail race) and row. I'm currently at 335k meters on the year which averages out to about 2 miles of rowing a day. CF also uses a ton of bodyweight movements as well.

is this crossfit or powerlifting? It's powerlifting but crossfit uses it in their programming. Again cf is just a brand but at the end of the day, it's just working out competitively, usually under a time cap.

Got into lifting weights ala Rippetoe a few years ago, have been out of it since we moved to Chicago last summer. Finally starting to get back into things. Always enjoyed the feeling of strength, but now I'm going to work on endurance as well. I've learned that whatever activity you're doing, be it running or crossfit or powerlifting, there's no reason to exclude other athletic endeavors if the mood strikes. Always down to learn something new.

The only veritable truth is if you're not lifting with Yorks, then you're not really lifting.

All about those Yorks huh? They look nice. I'm partial to Pendlay for weightlifing as most of my PRs are with them. Never tried a York. I've used Pendlay, Elieko, and Rogue.

lol I guess I should've specificied old Yorks, pre-1990s. I've a got a few bumpers and milled plates from that era.
But I also have 25kg pair of Eleikos training I found on craigslist, rogue bars, elitefts ssb, and other goodies. I sold a bunch of stuff before the move. it's a shame I don't use what I have left and have joined a gym.
people rave about the pendlays, but i've never used them myself.

That's rad man. So what kind of training are you into now? strength and endurance? That's pretty much I shoot for with emphasis on strength.

just the basic powerlifts. i'm basically starting over after not having lifted for almost a year. i'm starting to row a bit on a C2, and would like to ramp that up for endurance. do you have any recommendations on programs to follow? I found The Pete Plan online and was thinking about using it.

I follow a similar protocol to Gray Skull Linear progression for overhead press, deadlift, and bench. I follow a modified Wendler program for back and front squats. For endurance I just try to row about 4k a day. I may do it all at once or I may do 4 x 1000m. Then I also throw in a CF workout about 2x a week.

geez, sounds like a crapload of work. very nice. do you lift 2 days and CF 2 days?
i'm starting off with a home brew until i get reacquainted with the bar, then would like to do juggernaut. i've never done greyskull. I 've done wendler before but progress/volume were too slow for my liking. my focus for the next 6 months to a year is going to be bench, row, and deads, trying to get them to some respectable numbers.

It is a lot of work but the gym is where I feel the best (or on the golf course or outdoors camping).
So for me it seems like the perfect amount. I lift 4 to 5 days a week. About 3 days a week I do 2-a-days.
That's where I'll usually get in more rowing or a CF workout.

@jackbravo - Also, I recommend getting the C2 ergdata app on your phone and a usb cable from your phone to the C2 rower. It tracks everything for you. Pretty cool! Also updates it to an online log on their website as well.

Thanks. I actually bought a cable and cradle from the C2 website. I've used ergdata but not consistently. The automatic online log update is nice.
