I guarantee you if you ask a crossfitter why they do crossfit, most will tell you it's to be functionally fit. Those same people also have no idea what "functionally fit" even means.
Sure, if you're in at least decent shape, not competing seriously, not aiming to build optimal muscle, free from all injury and postural issues, as well as being competent at barbell movements, then knock yourself out. But the reality is that it is detrimental to those who have specific goals they want to work towards, which is my main problem with crossfitters, because they think it's the best way to train when it's nowhere close to it, and will tell anyone until they are blue in the face that newbies, or even those who are fit already, should take crossfit up.
I'm not saying crossfit doesn't have gruelling workouts, but the fact is that they are always high intensity with the aim of pushing yourself to your absolute limits, which will almost guarantee for injury occurrences, not to mention going against any specific goals you have. If you have one, train with that goal in mind, and stop doing crossfit because your mate or trainer recommended it, because that's only for people who don't have goals - most of whom that don't care about having bad technique, either.
