My 1 year Crossfit testimonial

22/5'7/178

So ive been doing crossfit for exacly 1 year.Im not new to working out, for a couple of years previously i was doing a typical 3 days weightlifting(8-12 reps) and 2-3 days cardio.I have played football "soccer" since i was young but i was looking for something different, something better and thats where crossfit came in.

Ive been doing mainpage for a year following a 5/2 split and i added a short strength workout about seven months in(usually 5x3 or 3x3).Im still PRing on every workout!

Anyway here are my numbers:

Fran: 08:22 - 3:45
Helen: 14:33 - 9:43
Elizabeth: 13:31 - 10:24
Cindy: 27rnds - 30rnds
Filthy Fifty: 24:15 - 21:20
5K run: 27:01 - 24:25 (terrible at runing)
1RM Back Squat: 242 - 318*
1RM Deadlift: 291 - 380
1RM S. press: 110 - 158
1RM Bench: ??? - 198
1RM Snatch: ??? - 149

*All numbers are in pounds.

And i just want to say to all the community for everything, so yeah thank you.
