2018 Reebok CrossFit Games: Continue to Rise

2018 Reebok CrossFit Games: Continue to Rise


Symbolic of the greater community and all its achievements, they represent each drop of sweat fallen, every pound of fat lost, diseases cured and capacity gain. They are the .001 percent, the tip of the spear, the gladiators—our gladiators. Their choices are seen as extreme, their abilities as exceeding nature. Yet their lives are characterized by near constant disappointment, an effort to build a foundation for later success. To be worthy representatives of us all, they must know defeat and humble themselves to its teachings. Continuously, they test and test and test again. For in the testing lies the answer to the question: How will you be better tomorrow? Only those who repeatedly ask and accept the answer, who continue to recognize missteps as opportunity will realize their true potential. Fear and ego will stop many as they mistake failure for weakness. It is through their efforts that we come to understand how our own limitations are contrived, that we come to understand what’s possible. Then we come to understand what we can choose to be: Better. For winning is not defined by metals but actions, by perseverance, by character, by effort. It does not mean you’re unbeatable, but rather, that you’ve been beaten and continue to rise.

    Literally building a sport in this generation can be one of the toughest things ever. But Dave Castro is taking Crossfit to new levels every year. I just wish this sport ends up being of the most viewed sports all over the world. These athletes are on a different league. Guys that deadlift 600lbs are extremely bulky but then look at them. Rowing for 3 hours. Gymnastics, weightlifting, army drills, swimming, running- you name it, they have it under their forte. This year was amazing.

    It is crossfit a caucasian-people only activity or what?

    I can barely see people from other ethnic groups than caucasian, in all videos, the Regionals, or in the Games. Maybe 1 to 3 in each one, maybe none, not only in women but also in men.

    This year's Games for example. Women and Men: 40 participants each group…all of them caucasian.

    Any explanation?

    Never forget that "crossfit" is not a training neither a nutrition systems itself: it is only a trademark and a business.

    I realize I've seen people doing "crossfit" since very, very long time ago without having any idea of what is "crossfit" about. They did "cross training", combining running, cycling, swimming, lifting weights, rope and wall climbing, military obstacle course, and other army-style training, as I did myself wen I was in the army at a unit of high mountain skiers-climbers, and after in the civil life.

    But suddendly appears somebody who put a name on it, and…a new business appears.

    As a disclaimer I'm not knocking crossfit I think its a cool concept. And I have respect for the games athletes they are very fit people. But some things still weird me out and I haven't gotten a good explanation for them. For a "fittest on earth" competition it seems like they include a lot of stuff that requires more "technique" than fitness. Some examples would be handstands, double unders, highly technical olympic lifts. I can kinda get my head around those although they seem way to prevalent, but the kipping pullups is just weird. Part of me wonders if they put all those things in to make it more exclusive so people have to join a gym or so its harder for average people that work out to compare themselves to the games athletes. Anyway would love to hear some good arguments as to why those things are really important to measure fitness.

    It seems very "crossfiter" to me…And it was at the 60's: https://physicalculturestudy.com/2018/01/22/bob-gajdas-peripheral-heart-action-pha-training/

    BTW…could be protein or BCAA shakes, or recovering drinks that many crossfiters consume, considered as a "paleo diet" having in mind that are made either in hi-tech labs or with chemical products?

    Where did the "real paleo people" find that sort of things, inside a mammoth or a bison after hunting them?

    nice that the narrator is expressing the sacrifices of the real warriors who serve our country. Although crossfitters are magnificient athletes, this is over the top exxageration on what crossfit is. Crossfit is definitely about yourself, even crossfit teams its the drive and ambition of ones self to win. Just to humble you Crossfit advocates and not let you get too big of an ego. Gorified athletes are what you are!
