    After looking into what a "continental lift" is, this video is another example of what's wrong with crossfit - too much weight, poor form, and poor coaching. It actually hurts to watch....how about learning how to do a lift before putting weight on the bar? These are young people who's life is going to be forever altered by injury if they keep this up.

    I am more concerned with them dropping the weights! That is a lot to land on your head or foot if you lose control....which it looks like they have little of as is.

    I don't get why they wouldn't drop the weight and work on proper form? There are a number of issues with alignment in all the people in the videos......ankles, knees, thoracic spine......ack! I could barely watch this without covering my eyes.....OW!

    This video has got to be a joke. There is no way people actually try to lift like this.

    I've been to a few crossfit classes at the gym here, and what we do is nothing like this. The trainers are great about making sure you have proper form and technique..

    I seriously think this video is a joke. At least, I really hope so!

    I think that the way they do pull-ups is a joke...

    I'm so glad that when I did crossfit, form was the highest priority. This is awful!

    :eek:mg: That looked painful. I had a crossfit guy as my trainer. He was good on form and it was really important to him that we did it right. He was just a little too much for me though. Sometimes I felt like I was on The Biggest Loser. I kind of think that is what they think people want. Not me.

    I so totally agree. I have seen many CF videos and my co-worked has been in one CF "club" and nothing like that happens there.
    If you check u-tube reebok CF olympics you know then that it's legimit stuff. No nonsense.

    They all dont do that swing thing... Check Mikko Salo (Finnish guy) does pull-ups good old style and still he was 2009 CF olympics champion.
    You should check this out. It's little long but shows little something into our Finns mentality:

    I have and do crossfit and I know most people on here hate it but I just have to say NOT all gyms are like this..Our trainers would never in a million years allow that..All areas of fitness have the good, bad and ugly when it comes to training..There are also those like this group and Erik who excel in what they teach and train....Just sayin
