4 month update on CF

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have been doing CrossFit for 4 months now and here is an update:

Weight: Was 275 now 246
Waist; 45" now 40"
Max Deadlift: 420
Max Bench: 310
Max Push Press: 255
Max Power Clean: 225

I did the WOD from CrossFit Games 2008: 275 deadliftx5 & burpees w/ clapX 10 in 7min 48 sec.(love to know what the pros did, second thought I probably don't want to know)
I feel great, all the lab work is down to normal. One negative is I still suck at doing pull-ups. My goal is to keep progressing, train with a fellow CrossFiter in the area, get 10 pull-ups and get down to 235 by July. Thanks for all the support and I will keep you updated.

Re: 4 month update on CF

Today i finally got the kipping pull-ups done. I could only do 5 at a time and was so happy I ended up doing 5 sets of 5. This has been my biggest disappointment and now I am on my way.

Matt,Joshua,Ken,-Thanks for the kind words guys. I am just loving CF and Paleo diet. I am finding it very easy to stick to and the CF training is addicting.
