V'rap - No-one needs to do Cross-Fit. Ever! :-O ;-)

Seriously I don't get it. And the photos I've seen of people doing it are all topless people in just shorts (the blokes) and the women just have bras and shorts on? It's not quite normal? I don't get why everyone's into it at the moment.

I suspect it's just the latest craze and in a year's time, all the *cool* kids will be trying something else.

Think I'll stick to Hockey, Running, Orienteering, Cycling, Swimming, Triathlons, Duathlons, Aquathlons and maybe a bit of cricket and badminton every now and then. That enough?

No-one wants to get sweaty with women in shorts and bras ;-)

I only wear shorts and a bra when training indoors.

Trying not to think of that in an "Eats, shoots & leaves" sort of way.

The idea of Vrap doing her outdoor training without a bra or shorts would obviously be too much for the males around here :-p

CrossFit seems perfect if you want to be fit but not specialise. I agree with pretty much everything they say in their what is fitness article. Nutrition I'm not sure about

Shame everything has to be a brand these days, although I understand why.

Pfft. Shoot my proofreader ;)

I don't think Cross-Fit has made it to Spyatri yet. The closest thing we've got is Moky Fit, which I think may not be quite the same thing.

This is the article btw: library.crossfit.com

There's a summary on the right of page 1 of what it basically involves.

Spyatri?

It's not really new, I wouldn't be surprised if people have looked into the individual elements of training are doing things similar to cross-fit already. Eg. I knew the stuff about weightlifting already, and most know that marathon training isn't going to help you move quickly when play basketball or other sports that require speed and quickness.

Obviously I have the same proofreader as Vrap.

Got something to say?
