Re: Before & After pics - 5 months of CrossFit

This is very impressive. Do you follow 3 on / 1 off?

At the risk of revealing my huge nerd status, those are you erectors. =)
And that is some nice progress. Keep up the good work!

Hi Eric,

For the first month or so, I didn't have a set schedule. It averaged out to be around 3 times a week though. Months 2 - 5 I have been working out 3 on, 1 off. Lately I have been stretching to 4 or 5 days before taking a rest day though. Why do I always feel guilty about taking a rest day!? I know my body needs it, but I just feel like I'm missing something!

Hooray! (throwing confetti) That is EXACTLY why I posted my progress pictures! I'm glad to hear that your wife is going to give it a try. Hopefully she's no longer worried that she'll "get big" from lifting weights.

Make sure she takes pictures so she can see the progress for herself. I sometimes forget that I had a double chin....the pictures help keep me motivated.

Ok...you got me...I am a master of trick photography! Yeah, I didn't even plan on that! The first two pictures there was a lot of natural light from the windows, but the day we took my most recent shot, it was kinda gloomy, so I flipped on the light in the hallway. You guys can use my secret Ninja skills for taking your progress pics too! I promise not to tell! :-)

Re: Before & After pics - 5 months of CrossFit

Jennifer, the 2 ladies in my office were VERY impressed and one said "15 PUs...her arms don't look that big." I said "It's not size we go for, it's STRENGTH." That seemed to make a huge impression.

I can't think of any other "community" that people would A) post pictures like this and B) get such support.

Re: Before & After pics - 5 months of CrossFit

Jennifer,

Being that it seems as though you had little strength to start what did you do as a workout? Brand X scaled?

I am asking because I am hard core into Crossfit and I think this has gotten my wife to say, Lets try this.

She is in the place where you were 6 months ago. I want to start her right without scaring her. She is not athletic and I want to get her going and keep her motivated. If I put too much strain on her immediately I may scare her off.

Your input seems like it would be important for me and her.

And the results you showed us all are very impressive.
