I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: CrossFit is not a sport.
It’s a training regimen replete with flatiron flinging and shoulder-murder, but no amount of Reebok or rep-counting can change the fact that it is a workout routine.
Nonetheless, I enjoy a good compilation of lifting failure as much as the next guy, which brings us to the latest and greatest in CrossFit(ish) bloopers caught on camera.
The video, compiled by Fail Army, shows what happens when keepin’ it Cross goes wrong.
Warning: Video contains NSFW language and toxic levels of kipping.
Granted, all of these individuals aren’t CrossFitters—or they don’t appear to be, at least.
Some of these guys and girls seem like wannabe power lifters, lifting alone or at an L.A. Fitness. Take old man Winklevoss, for example.
Whatever this is, he’s not posting “500 x hump rows” to Facebook, thus breaking rule No. 1 of CrossFit: Tell everybody about Crossfit.
So, which is your favorite? Mine is Shirtless Sean. Sean's favorite movie is Sleeveless In Seattle. He enjoys kipping out of the tub after a long bath.
Can one kip out of a bubble bath? Bro, you can kip anything.
Thankfully, it appears no one was seriously injured in any of these incidents. All forms of lifting, CrossFit or otherwise, are inherently dangerous and should be done with supervision.
So remember, kids: If you’re going to the gym, have a spotter and don’t be a hero. Otherwise, you might find yourself choking down dental Chiclets or getting a visit from good ol’ Uncle Rhabdo.
