Here's the video of them destroying the final workout of the central east regionals.
I'm trying to understand why Crossfit gets such a bad rep compared to bodybuilding and powerlifting. Is this kind of strength and endurance not admired?
This is the show. The spotlight, the final stage for the best of the best crossfitters. Is this not as impressive as a guy shaving his body, getting disgustingly tan, buying a thong and posing in front of people? Or putting on a 2-ply canvas bench shirt, 8 foot long wrist wraps, arching your back for minimal range of motion and benching an extreme weight that nobody has any business even attempting raw?
Dont get me wrong, I admire top bodybuilders and powerlifters. Hell, I've competed in powerlifting and worn gear. The amount of hard work and dedication is nothing to smirk about. The top guys are world class athletes.
What do you think about when somebody says they do crossfit? Do you think of the guys in the video above? Or the average guys who just perform crossfit.com workouts to lose weight and stay healthy?
Anyways, the performance in the video is insane. And please don't flame me for the second paragraph . I have the utmost repspect for athletes in those sports.
