Dedicated CF Newb
Ill keep it short and sweet
Male, 24 years old 132lbs, 7 percent bodyfat
Im new to crossfit, but have been very active in the past years.
Im inspired by the very intense, short and sweet workouts that bring people to thier knees.
I was a dedicated long distance runner (1/2 marathons), and one day i realized i was too dedicated and started losing weight fast. Recently i started training with weights (hadnt done it since high school with any regularity)
and eating more to support and gain some weight. Im following a very zone diet like eating regimen.
Being a runner in the past years has granted me some good stamina, but im lacking in strength. I can bench press my body weight plus 10 or so for a number of reps. I can do about 10 chins, 5 pullups, 25 or so dips, and probably about 35-40 pushups without stopping. Id really like to develop my pullups and overall strength do i can do some RXed CF wods. I can do some of the exercises RXed, but some are horrible.
Anyways, what would be a good place to start developing pullups? Or just a general "up to crossfit" speed regimen?
