Got 10 more lbs to go to 190 then gonna work on cutting the fat I've gained. My gym just built a new crossfit section and I think I might start trying out some sessions once I get to my goal, I figure it will help with the fat loss. Anyone ever mess around with crossfit?
Nah, I looked into it, but just not my thing. I love the competition aspect as I'm insanely competitive... but it's just, weird.

Thankfully, no. But these people have.



As you can tell form is really important to Crossfit. These people will both get great gains and never hurt themselves.

FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH!!!

What's up with the 45 pound looking plates that apparently weigh like 5 pounds each? Never understood that... especially since they recklessly toss them around, wouldn't they want smaller plates anyway?

I guess it helps make the bar even instead of having it cascade? IDK.

I personally like having uneven weights. When you do something like deadlifting, it's nice to just throw two 45s on and then the rest 35s and less. Makes unloading the bar much easier.

Keep a constant range of motion for <135 through your first set of plates and above

Working on technique. If you are new to it obviously you don't want to be having 45lb plates on each side, but the dummy plates the bar is the same height off the ground etc as normal plates.

Just the same as how you get technique bars etc.

Ah, gotcha, that makes sense... hadn't considered that.

Although technique and Crossfit in the same sentence?

For real Olympic lifting, they also use those kinds.

They're called bumper plates, and they're rubber-coated so that you can drop them from above your head.

If you've ever seen those huge athletes doing clean & jerk or snatch, they drop the weight once they get it up. Metal-only plates would damage the floor when you're cleaning 400-600+ lbs.

Gotcha... makes sense. Never thought about it much, and rarely see anyone doing those kinds of lifts at the gym.

I'm guessing power lifters might use bumper plates for squats, too. I don't know if it's even possible to spot a 1000# squat lol

Fatigue from working out is really starting to affect schoolwork. Do things like Muscle Milk really help re-energize after a workout?

Something sounds wrong with your overall diet and/or sleep pattern. Usually I'm so focused and fired up after a great workout.

Are you eating properly/enough? Getting enough rest? Also, what is your workout?

JayP- I have to agree with ColePens and Unaffiliated.

People are always asking what else can I add to my workouts, when they should be making sure they are not working too much. As has been said get enough rest, and don't work too much.

And I am big time anti supplements. If you're eating the right foods (and eating real food) you shouldn't need them.

Remarkable. I applaud you good sir.

Incredibly inspiring and I don't have any weight to lose.
