Talking Summer of Crossfit Results

I decided to drop most of my gym weight lifting and concentrate on Crossfit, Crossfit Endurance and Diet (nearly Paleo...lots of cheating.)

Went from 180lbs/14.5%BF to 157/8.5%BF (measured with handheld meter)

Set PR's on nearly every WOD, except lost some strength on the press and DL.

I may post some of my WOD times and improvements later...

Thank you Crossfit!

Awesome. The difference in your face (ignoring the haircut) is huge, even though you weren't exactly overweight before.

Great job! Could you post your improvements? I am interested. You cheated alot too? Man you've got to love CF when you can cheat a good amount and still be in great shape.

CFT: 1045 (6/29) vs 1075 (5/24)
DT: 12:27 (7/24) vs 16:28 (4/14)
2mi run: 13:48 (8/16) vs 15:00 (6/21)
100ft lunge, 21PU/GHD... 10:45 (8/22) vs 12:44 (4/6)
Tabata SomeElse: 469 (8/10) vs 408 (5/1)
Front Sqx1: 325 (8/15) vs 315 (5/6)
FGB: 314 (8/5) vs 281 (3/29)
Nicole: 163/7rnds (8/1) vs 119/5rnds (3/30)
JT: 6:59 (8/3) vs 7:29 (3/15)

10K: 51:17 (7/30) vs 54:45 (7/1)

My Shoulder Press is down maybe 10-15 lbs(190/200), DL down 10lbs(450/460), Squat is about the same, Bench is down to ? (hardly bench ever)

I'm definitely happy about the progress.

You can thank the Primal Blueprint for the tan. . .I've learned to enjoy playing around at the pool in the sun and chillin' out. ; )

gotta have play time.

Because if you got taller, I'm sold on this CrossFit stuff!



Sorry - I couldn't help it.
