    Hey guys! Just saw this thread and figured I might as well get in it as I am a lifter myself. Just going to throw some info out there about me. I am 22 years old. I have been lifting on and off, mostly on though, for 8 years. I'm sitting at 203 as of this morning at about 5'7 or so.
    Pr's are as follows:
    Bench-365
    Squat- 500 with knee wraps, 465 w/o
    Power clean- 315
    Deadlift- 465

    My bench and squat have been in the past year, PC and deads were set when I was 18. I haven't had the opportunity go PC that heavy, though I have done 275 for easy reps about 1.5 years ago. Deads I did 405 for a few just a few months ago too.

    About assult, I have personally loved it. I've tried a bunch a pwo's and that was one I always found that gave me a great pump.

    Just curious why your deads are low (for someone with a 365 bench and 500 squat)?

    In high school, I was taught by a power lifter who didn't really like deads. He was my mentor for years and I listened to him greatly. I still talk to him whenever I need advice about power lifting. He was the reason my PC was so high. I had nearly perfect form. My clean and jerk was 285 and snatch was 245. I used to do all sorts of crazy exercises to increase those numbers. But because he was never into deads I never got into them. Once I get a new job(hopefully soon), I'm going to get back into them and I want to raise it a good bit.

    Why is that? Everything has its purpose if done right. I wouldnt perscribe kipping to a body builder. But for someone wanting to add intensity i think there awsome (if done right) everyone hates on kipping stuff. A kipping pullup is an exercise and its completly diffrent than a pullup just like theres a diffrence beetween a pullup and a chin up. People need to stop saying shit like "fake pullups" or "cheating pullups" there a completely diffrent exercise compared to a pullup. End of rant.

    After reading back on everything I missed while at the beach, THIS was the best thing of all!

    There wasn't a gym where we went, but I rented a bike and rode a few miles a day. I've got some ass-busting to start on Monday.

    Keywords bolded. Most "crossfit" is a bunch of crap IMO. Now for the true people who do it, I'm jealous. I can't put my body through that because I don't know how to do it right. I won't take classes that teach me how to because most crossfit people have no idea what they are doing. I personally never do kipping. It looks painful to me. I do believe there is use for crossfit and some of the techniques if you're into that. There's just a lot of idiots out there teaching people wrong. I saw a video of a crossfit gym teaching people to deadlift a power clean. You held it reverse grip, and power cleaned it up to your stomach or as high as you could, then change your grip to overhand and pulled it up. Makes absolutely no sense on why to do that.

    Once again, for the serious people (such as the competitors) crossfit is great. Its a great workout and awesome for burning fat. But most gyms/people don't understand it.

    I agree with most of that. Its too easy to get ur level 1 which allows you to coach a crossfit class. When i got mine it was kinda a joke to obtaine, $1000 dollars and a weekend seminar gets you one. Granted the test ur required to pass i thought was harder than any nasm, acsm or issa CPT exam iv done but they teach u everything u need to know for the test in the days prior. There followup course which is another 1000 bucks ofcourse is 10x better it actualy is the coaches prep course class and i dont think people shuld be allowed to train others untill they do that course. I think crossfit trainers shuld also have to have a CPT cert but thatll never happen. I do crossfit compotitions, coach, and i love it but i hate Crossfit HQ and reebok and how all they wana do is turn crossfit into a brand to make as much money as possible, i have freinds that competed at regionals this year and they didnt get payed, insted they pay to compete. Crossfit is a great program when done correctly with good coaches and when people dont post about it everyday on there facebook page, but with bad coaches and the cult following its easy for people to hate it. And i usualy dont blame them
