9/09/2008 10:40am, #12The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
The idea that the only difference between a housewife's training and an olympic athletes is just the intensity is downright absurd. But marketing is marketing."Emevas,

definitely a GPP program, but that's what I'm after. For specifics, I'm training in SAMBO. But being 40 and training in a hard grappling&striking style is taking its toll on me.
Having trained in Russia, I was totally impressed with the overall fitness of the atheletes. Generally, Russian kids are put into gymnastics and this forms their baseline. That the crossfit founder was also a gymnast interests me greatly.
So the GPP that Crossfir provides-sans KoolAid- is a good routine for me. Plus they have 6am classes which is the only time I can spare.

And let's assume indeed there were no "new" threads (which is not true), what else would you expect? That people's experiences with it, good or bad would be somehow different then and now, in just a manner of months? Last time I fucking checked, the human body and its capacity to respond to training do not change that much in such a matter of months.
If you can't get yourself to dig the information presented in the threads herein, good **** that has been discussed ad nauseam, then YOU get the **** out. We want posters mentally capable of doing their own homework, their own research. That's the type of people that can get **** done and contribute material of value for the collective good. Anything else is just noise and time-wasters. We don't need time-wasters creating a new thread for some **** already covered in sufficient details, that contributes nothing and that only presents a beaten deadhorse question asked and answered a zillion times.
Thread closed.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
