    I've heard about crossfit from a few people now, as a viable solution for increasing muscular endurance.

    I dont know what it is though, or what makes it work.

    Do any of you have any good articles on crossfit, or indeed a good explanation of it?

    If you like Bill Hicks, you can't possibly be interested in C-untFit.

    It looks like a good workout. Everyone here seems to hate it for some reason.

    Every white belt who hasn't been banned knows there's a search feature.

    What colourful responses. I took some advice and went to google for some answers. It led me to crossfit's website. I read through a PDF document and it told me dick all about it.

    I am already skeptical

    Cling to this skepticism for the rest of your life. It's a gift and it will keep you out of trouble.

    CrossFit forges elite athletes. It works better than natural bodybuilding:

    Just stick to playing piano.

    Or you could do a search, learn the potential amount of fail associated with crossfit, then read the FAQ instead.
