you dont need to join a crossfit gym to do crossfit. and it's a waste of money and not the safest thing. a typical session can have you doing box jumps, kettlebell swings/deadlifts, burpees, wall balls, and some Olympic lifting. that can take quite a toll on your lower back and most crossfitters seem to get at least one major injury a year because they are dumb and are always aiming to hit new PRs.

maybe opt for a combo of calisthenics and powerlifting instead, that'll get you good results and be less likely to cause harm.

I don't think the average crossfitter can do ten strict pullups

I mean if you really want to try it, do it. There is the whole community aspect of it and you'll learn Olympic lifting which is good. Just don't do it more than 3-4 days a week.

Most gyms like 24 hour fitness are starting to stock things like bumper plates now so it's easy to fuck around on a budget

that's probably commonly found in most sups

but I cant think of anything that tastes worse than pea protein, hate that it's in like 95% of plant based sups these days.

hemp has no taste really unless you bought a flavored one, just mix it with something a little sweet and it's fine. I tried masking the taste of pea protein several times with different juices and could not mask it even a little, barf

Is crunch good? It's 110$ a year + they have semi-private programs that I think will be affordable (if anyone knows what they rates are usually lemme know). I'd like to have people to work out with like 3 days a week or something/ need decent instruction for a bit

some Crunch gyms are really large and fancy but some are pretty basic. regardless, that's a great price for any gym for a whole year. might want to also check Groupon as a lot of gyms have deals for 1-3 months to see if you like it without committing to a year contract

guys i'm a bit torn on taking creatine, and have been reading a bunch on the internet trying to understand, and i'm probably overthinking it. all I take supplement wise are protein shakes after a workout. I don't want to get super bulky, but I feel I'm already pretty lean could stand to add a bit. Part of this also is because my diet is as such that I don't eat nearly enough calories, which I'm trying to make a concerted effort to change. I eat really, really well, just not enough.

1) should I be taking creatine? I workout pretty often, i'd say 4-6 times/week, and I'm concerned I'm selling my workouts short.
2) I'm confused as to what to take. Should it be straight creatine like this or like a preworkout w/ creatine?
3) I'm reading differing things of what happens if/when you stop taking creatine. I realize that it pulls water into your muscles, so once you go off of it, do you deflate like a goddamned balloon?
4) are rumors of it causing balding TRUE? I have a luxurious head of tighted cropped hair that i just cannot lose.

sorry if these are rookie questions.

i’m on creatine

i went from lean at 185-190 to lean at 195-200 and sort of stagnated there

my hair is dope

you only need it if you’ve plateaued in strength probably, i’d try eating more first then go the creatine route

its effect is mostly in short/medium term strength improvement

with strength improvement comes hypertrophy

it works, dunno about hair loss never had any on it

not specifically training to do anything atm, still incorporate the basic bodyweight stuff in with my weight sessions. been stuck working a lot so I've been doing 3 hour plus full body gym days then taking like 3 days off. arms have gotten to a decent size and finally have some decent pec development(wasn't really training them right for a while).

every time i go on a cut i lose like 4lbs then get less strict and put it back on. being lean makes calisthenics so much easier and I'm too heavy right now but just doing things like push ups, chin ups, dips when you're heavy makes it like you are training with a weight vest so when i do cut 10-12lbs my numbers should go up a little bit.

been wanting to increase strength too, keep seeing these like 95lb amateur female powerlifters reppin weight that I can barely move and it's weird. i know since they do nothing but those 3 lifts that they're obviously going to be good at it but I should have a bit more crossover strength. i mostly pull sumo and bench 2-3x a week when i do some PL but don't do it that seriously and i don't do heavy squats cause of some minor knee issues.

wouldn't mind being able to nail a backflip, maybe I'll start the progressions on that.

how bout you, speakers? what are you working on?

still working on holding a straight line handstand and a full front lever

the dream is an l-sit to press handstand/hspu and full straight body 360 on the rings (pull into front lever, rise to inversion, lower to back lever, lower to german hang, all with straight arms, under control)

i'd also like to start seriously training for a planche but i think training two skill at once is enough

there's a new class at my gym that is focused on gymnastic style calisthenics and it's great fun, i imagine we'll get to back flips eventually (been lots of tumbling stuff so far)

but yeah what you said re: not strong enough/too much body weight

nice, looks like you're making some decent progress.

forgot to mention that my right heel needs to get checked out, haven't been able to run or do any kind of jumping in about a month, which has made cutting weight a little harder.

i did buy some fat gripz and was doing some strongman stuff with it, it makes things like farmer's walks really hard, gotta use weight 10-15lbs less than normal.

I was talking to this dude about supplements and he said glutamine is essential. I'm not reading much that supports this being a wonder boost, and I don't need anything more than what I'm doing, but am curious if anybody does it
