The official unofficial FAQ of CAVEMANforum
From what I have seen Crossfit favors speed over form and function. In the real world of weight training, if you can't hold your form, you failed the lift and should stop. Crossfit has you keep going regardless of the form and that causes injury specially to the new lifter. That is why I am not a fan of Crossfit.
Hey all,New to crossfit, about 6 weeks in. Did deadlifts on Sunday morning, and now it's Thursday and my back has been killing me since Monday. I am positive my deadlift form got more horrendous as I got tired, and I know this is why my lower back has been very painful. I saw a chiropractor on Tuesday, who attributed my pain to being a new weight lifter and said it should go away soon.I'm wondering how all you experienced cave people have handled a similar injury.Thanks!
As for repping out on the deadlift, the more tired you get the more your form suffers. And the last thing you want to be doing is having your form going down the toilet when you're doing an exercise that for the most part allows people to move the heaviest weight they can.
In my younger days, I competed in several strongman competitions. The event I always dreaded was the deadlift for reps event as it would wreck my body for days afterwards. Highly technical lifts like the barbell clean and jerk, snatch, and deadlift done for high reps is just asking for injury and is darn irresponsible to be urged to do in my opinion.If you still wish to train in this manner, I'd recommend switching to sumo deadlifts over conventional. It's a lot more forgiving on the body to bang out reps in sumo than conventional.
