I should have just pressed delete, but I had this pithy comment from the Charles Poliquin Biosignature Review:
Charles Poliquin’s Knowlege and experience makes you guys seem like kids with trainer wheels. “Just listen and learn”
Well! That is certainly telling me! The originallity is right up there with the stock art from your Website “DM”. The picture of the Jerry Seinfeld look alike under the “Home” Tab is particularly popular! 3 chiropractors in our little ‘ol town alone have used that same image…very original work.
Now…if you are trying to be a dick, you need to try harder than that. If you are trying to stimulate some kind of debate, you will need to actually be able to “think”. If you notice, when I reviewed Chuck’s seminar I did it with reverance due a man who is successful and well respected in his field. His claims do not meet his results, but this was no character assasination or similar tactic. In short “DM”, go fuck yourself. If you want to have a discussion of techniques, let’s have at it. Want to do a dick measuring contest to see who has produced better results, lets do it….but for the love of God, if you are going to spam my fucking Blog put something of value on it, ok?
Not all aussies are dicks……I hope 😉
I was trying to link your site and some of the other CF’ers in Renouf’s neighborhood so y’all could play….unfortunately I ran out of time.
The whole crossfit thing has been pretty interesting for me. When we started NO ONE had a clue who we were or what we were doing. Now there is quite a bit of notoriety, we have 2 globo gyms in town who are running “CrossFitness” classes, one of whom we helped to buy gear, get set up and now they are essentially stealing via copy right infringement…I suspect this is just the beginning. CF is popular and controversial…as it takes market share form other coaches and organizations it will gain in haters. Interestingly however, you will see less and less attempts ate legitimate discourse or debate. It will be straw-man attacks and skirting the central issue of results. Oh well.
Jason- RedBridge and NorCal margaritas Baybeee! We have the NorCal Margarita on the menu of 5 restaurants in 4 states now. Word is getting out!
I love it when robb talks dirty! =)
Did you see their trainer’s page? Bunch of chubby-speedo wearing-wankers-on rocks, looks like a homosexual photo shoot for under armor. These dingo ate my baby-dundee-bloomin’ onion bastards have some nerve. “listen and learn” to what? The steroid using, buy my supplement taking joke with the paper hat? I think not. I support robb, maybe not for president, but at least mayor…… I would vote for that…..as long as he cooked.. I can imagine is campaign slogan “free red bridge for everyone!”
Brian M. says
Come now. What fun would the world be without a pissing contest here and there? Robb, you’re the man – keep it up.
Sean B-H says
I’m glad that idiot pissed you off enough to post it front page because I got a chance to check out that great post.
It’s interesting reading points against CrossFit. You provided excellent counter arguments. There’s eventually going to be more and more people speaking out against CrossFit as it takes over. It is good to have well thought out counter arguments. Although, I think people with a basic knowledge are capable of producing great and valid rebuttals.
Serious and intelligent people trying to “prove wrong” the program would attend a level 1 certification. I would pay to go to another certification if I knew there would be someone like that attending. The conversation and debate generated would be interesting and informative.
Have you seen this to a great degree during your career as a trainer?
hah. fucking stick it to him man!
show em who’s boss,
I don’t think that’s a Jerry Seinfeld look alike.
It looks like the real Jerry.
As we all know Jerry is an icon for physical excellence…. not.
Zach @ CFLV says
I actually splurted my almond milk through my nose and choked on my PWO sweet potatoes when I read this. Fucking awesome, Robb!
Matthew Beaudreau says
Gotta say, amen to that. Well put Robb.
Oh well Robb, lik my partner at our box will say, theres only one response to thes sort of comments, “D M, you-are-the-best”. No one will have comments about it.
BTW I’m kinda upset of this kind of behavior but at the same time I can’t stop the suprise laughter from your response. AWESOME!!
Ben W says
Wow! Going to “DM’s” website was the biggest waste of 10 seconds in my life
Just noticed that your coming to Toronto in October! Nice! I will definitely be there!
***note to self…don’t drink fosters (even if it is Australian for beer mate) prior to attempts at web design as it could lead to the posting of embarrassing pictures of trainers in speedos, maybe worse
wow…go robb! you are da man! and, i just wanted to say, as i sit here drinking my norcal margarita in san diego, that sweet potatoes as a PWO snack are “fucking rocket fuel”…who knew?
If only I could package sweet potatoes…perhaps a shake? A whole sweet potato supplement line…hmmm…
Drink&Dial, sloshed-typing and hammered-programming are all dangerous activities. There has been much remorse after benders+ any of these activities. Be fore-warned!
padraic colhoun says
hey robb.. great post.. just had a look at their site.. tut tut eh! i always like to check out the testimonials on these kind of pages.. and surprise surprise… they’ve repeated about 3 of them about 3 times… great blog bro. keep it up.
padraic( cf noob)
Ha ha! Funniest. Webpage. Ever.
“Constanly varied poses, executed at high embarrassment across broad beach and rock domains”
Nicely called out Mr Wolf.
that was pretty fucking awesome…
Also, you’re gonna have to at least share the basic idea of of NorCal Margarita even if you can’t give out the exact recipe… educate me!
hey Ben W, I’m in the GTA too, I’ll pay him a visit with to. You know as “trainers on wheels” we have no problem getting around. lol!
no one in Australia drinks Fosters….no shit! is f**kn cats-p##s!
Brad Hirakawa says
That dude wears slim fit jeans.
Dani Aldred says
Robb, I also read the review.
Some of it was over my head but I find the different hormone states leading to different fat deposition very interesting. I have started taking Zinc and Magnesium before bedtime … as well as Vit B Complex and Fish Oil in the morning. I will be looking into HCl … not sure if I will choose to take it as I think it might not be necessary for someone in their early 20s. What do you think? Does age play a huge role in determining whether HCl would be beneficial or not?
A ink Tally test is helpful in this case. Google it…it’s a blog post someday but not today! If you are stressed, underslept etc something like Nowfoods:super enzymes may be of huge benefit. Start with 1-2 caps, if you feel heat from that dose (always with protein containing meals!!) dial it back a cap.
nancy boy fellows says
a well balanced Australian ? A person with a chip on both shoulders ?!
Roberto after looking at forecast it’s looking likely i won’t be coming to Seattle…might leave as late as Sat afore finally deciding but nad soaking rain riding is no fun.
Incidentally do you know why a Zone higher carb diet makes you leaner than a paleopbollocks diet please ?
At some point calorie restriction is it. Keeping insulin controlled+cal restriction is even better! Hope to see you but if not we will be in BC later in the year.
Robbie – I love the “Go Fuck Yourself”…that is why you were one of the few recipients of the infamous “GFY” shirt.
In response to Robb’s “kind” words, yea! I suppose I deserve that. God dam you’re harsh :). Seriously, this forum was not the place to write a piece of blabble and I wish you well in your endevours.
Thanks DM, we will share drinks and BBQ when I make it down-under next year.
Thanks Robb, look forward to it.
If the Renouf lads want to come and play with some real fitness, we’ll see them down at The Cell!! NB: Our training doesn’t include a fkn pose down!!
Robb, when are you heading down under? We’d love to have you at The Cell for the XFit Nutrition Seminar.
Jason! We have been working on the logistics…I’ll shoot you an email and we can hash out some details.
That’s awesome Rob. Just had Tucker over, will have HQ over in July and the CFE boys in a couple of months so we’ll definitely be up for yourself and Rip for next year! Will wait to here from you.
