Bodybuilders vs. CrossFitters: Who’s More Fit? | You Asked For It; In this episode of You Asked For It, Host, Melana Scantlin from “The World Series of Blackjack” checks in with Expert Trainers & Bodybuilders, James Ellis & Courtney Prather, and CrossFit Coaches and Fitness Pros, Madeline Mosier & Nick Phillips to get some of your fitness questions answered regarding the very subjective topic of which form of training will get you to the highest level of fitness, bodybuilding or CrossFit, and what the experts believe each method has to offer. First, the bodybuilders explain the difference in intensity between the two forms, what bodybuilding means to them, and that while they often times look more in shape, they actually consider the CrossFitters to be more fit in some ways where endurance, functionality, and work capacity are concerned. Next the panel discusses examples of marathon runners versus power lifters, and weighs in on the fact that CrossFit training is widely used in law enforcement as well as the military. Finally, the CrossFit Experts explain the unique combination of training styles that comprise the form such as functional training, strength training, high intensity cardio training, power lifting intervals, and even some gymnastics moves, and why they believe it offers such drastic results. Find out why everyone has their own idea of “fit” and which one may work best in order to achieve your personal fitness goals.
