Tall and thin is a shape....but not for long

Hello, this is my first post. Quick details-I'm 6'5", 160. I'm a psychiatrist in the military, currently in Mosul, Iraq. Getting in shape is how I'll make it through this deployment with reasonable sanity. I've been doing crossfit for 2 weeks, and can already tell a difference!

Cross fit Total from two days ago
-Squat-185
-Shoulder press-115
-Dead lift-195
----total of 495

Workout from yesterday-Thrusters at 95, all else as rx. 19:15

Todays workout-Cleans, 95/105/105/115/105, all else as rx. 19:30

My condtioning is outpacing my strength.
I hope I can keep this up, even after I get home(columbus, GA).

I'm open to communicating about crossfit, drop me an email if you want.

Re: Tall and thin is a shape....but not for long

Welcome to Crossfit! Dang, 6'5" and 160#? You must have a metabolism like I had when I was young!

Metabolic conditioning comes a lot more quickly than strength gains, but you will get both from doing crossfit. There are other options if you want to concentrate more on strength and gaining mass, but there are also other people on the boards with a lot more knowledge than me who will probably be happy to help you out. Search it out of you're interested, though, there's threads for just about anything you can think to ask...

Anyway, good luck with you efforts, and thanks for serving. I have a stepson over in Baghdad right now, hopefully he won't have anything happen that'll necessitate coming to visit you.

WOD on 3 June

Weird exercise, took me a couple tries to get the form right.

1-75#(bad form)
2-85#(worse form)
3-75#(better form)
4 through 10-65#(good form)

Didn't like this one. Today's should be better.

June 4 WOD

15 pullups(jumping)
30 pushups
45 squats

I like the timed ones.

Looking forward to the squats today.
