I am just getting back into the swing of things with crossfit. Without going into all the details. I am able to workout twice a day while at work. I work from 6a-4p Monday through Thursday. I have been trying to do WOD in the am as soon as I get to work and the last hour of the day doing work on my strength movement.

Do you all think I am doing to much in one day??? Do you see any major disadvantages of working like this. Thanks in advance for you help and opinions!!

Hi Travis. It depends on the workouts and how much/hard/intense the workouts are. You could work out several times a day if the workouts are easy enough. Most crossfit workouts are fairly intense. Even if a new person scales some of the workouts, they are usually going close to their max. If I do a crossfit wokout as RXD, I am never able to do another workout that same day. But I'm just speaking about myself here. Let us know what your workouts consist of.

Thanks a bunch for the reply. I am pretty squared away with how crossfit all works. I was down last year this time to 5-6% BF at 5'8" and 160lbs. However, my wife and I have had our 3rd child and a promotion at work has forced me to have a little different priorites and I fell way off the band wangon. I currently am at about 15-18% BF and 180lbs.

My workout facilities where I'm at now do not compare to what I had available to me at my other fire station. However, I try to make do. I have to do alot of subs for the different excercises.

My goal right now is just trying to get the weight off and just get back into better shape. I feel last year I went a little overboard with the weight loss and BF. I would be happy just getting back down to around 8-10% at around 170lbs.

Todays workout I did a modified Murph starting at 0630.
Mile Run
100 lat pull downs at 120lbs, no where to do pull ups.
100 push ups
200 squats
Mile run
Right around 48 minutes

I did a similiar workout yesterday so I was pretty sore that is why I backed it off today.

Then today at 1500 I did
Deadlift High Pulls 60%of max x 6 x 6
Push Presses 60% of max x 6 x 6
Push/Pull circuit for 10 minutes. Bench press/Seated Rows

Anyways, I don't think I want to stay with this forever, just trying to get a jump on the intial weight loss. We have a new workout room being built which will have a pullup station which I cannot wait for.

Anyways, thats how I have been going at it the last 2 weeks. WOD in morning. Strength traing in the afternoon.

Travis, those workouts are amazing. I realize you want to get a good start coming back to the X/F workouts, but If I may quote you here you said "last year you went a little overboard with the weight loss and fat reduction." Are you doing the same thing now? I'm not stating that you are doing that, its just a question, because to me that's a real tough schedule you have there. But maybe again you can tolerate that level of exercise. Best Milton.

I see what your saying my friend. I guess I should have said that I'm not going to try and be so strict with the diet. I got to the point at times last year if for whatever reason I couldn't make a meal or snack. I really felt it. Guess body didn't have much to pull from.

I should have stated my main goal is better overall fitness. I know the weight loss will come with the hard work. I'm am probably a little over anxious to get started again. My biggest fear is not giving my body enough time to recover. I haven't had any recovery problems yet so. We will see how things go.
