Inspirational and Motivational Quotes from The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Week #5

Here are the Top Motivational and Inspirational Quotes from NBC’s The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Episode #5

OK, time for two little rants.

First of all during this episode, Bob Harper took the contestants through a workout called Fran. Fran is a Cross-fit workout. I don’t like Cross-fit and here are my reasons. The Cross-fit exercises when performed properly are all perfectly fine exercises. The problem with Cross-fit is that rarely are the exercises done properly. The emphasis is on completing the exercises as fast a possible or completing as many reps as possible in a pre-determined amount of time.

That approach promotes poor technique. And poor technique with maximal effort is a recipe for injury. Cross fit workouts are very difficult and they require maximal effort. So technique will falter. I know that Cross-fit coaches will disagree with me, but I don’t care. They are wrong!

There is decades of research from credentialed, and respected educational institutions from around the world that offer scientific proof on how to exercise properly. There have been thousands, probably tens of thousands, of peer reviewed, double blind studies done that follow accepted research methodologies that offer proof on how to develop structured exercise protocols. We already know how many sets and reps to do, how much weight to lift, how long to rest between sets and at what speed to move durnig exercises to reach any fitness goal.

Cross-fit doesn’t follow any of this science. I don’t recommend it for anyone.

On a slightly different note. Bob Harper has been giving Dolvett a hard time about stealing workouts from him all season. Here’s the deal, you can get the Fran workout from Cross-fit online. He’s being hypocritical. He didn’t come up with Fran. Anybody can simply google it. The “great” American trainer didn’t even come up with his own workout. He got it from the web!

OK, rant #2

You’ll notice that the quotes from this weeks episode are scarce. That’s because there were very few good quotes. The cast this season is boring. None of them are very interesting. None of them really seem to be buying into the program. All of them seem really superficial, selfish and trivial.

Now maybe it will get better as they begin to experience what it feels like to really make positive changes in their lives. I hope so, because so far this is the worst cast in the history of the show.

Here are this weeks quotes

“I’ve never reached my goals.”

“I’m here to do things that have never been done before.”

“Let’s do some good stuff.”

“Lets’ do it.”

“I’ve learned to really enjoy whit it is that I’m doing.”

See you next week!
