recently i was on a lift and the topic of working out came up in our group. i joined into the convo because i actually enjoy lifting. when i said that i enjoy lifting though, i got a mini lecture on how lifting (bench, DL, weighted dips, etc) does nothing for my “core stability” and these workouts hinder my skiing. kinda ticked me off tbh, considering that I’m a better skier than OP (hopefully that didn’t come off self righteous)
Dont get me wrong, I know that functional training/CrossFit/calisthenics has its place, I’ve seen crazy transformations because of these too. But when CrossFit people act like weight lifting is some primitive brutish routine it gives them all a bad rep.
