Re: Biggest Dude Doing CrossFit

I think I'm a big guy.
6'3" 268#s
I started crossfit a month now. Down from 277#s.

The biggest challenge has been the running. I don't have a
robust skeletal frame so the runs are hard on me.
Otherwise, the strength work, skill work, and intensity training
are awesome.

Re: Biggest Dude Doing CrossFit

5'11" and 235 at 47 years

I can get 21 pullups without a break most days and 23 if I am rested and motivated. My weakness is running (recovering from broken leg and 10 screws courtesy my mountain bike).

I'm right there with you.

Started CrossFitting last August at 274 lbs and 39% body fat. Sick. Embarrassed to have to even type those numbers.

Had a an assessment last weekend, down to 247 lbs and 27% body fat.

Next goal is to get down to 200-205 lbs and <15% body fat.

It's a process. A damned-worthwhile and difficult process.

Yes it is difficult. There is a great article called Former Fat Boy Handbook by Chris Shugart on T-Nation. I won't link it, but it is easy to find.

Us FFB's have a long, tough road ahead, but ultimately it is worth it! You keep up the hard work and I will.
