Restarting CrossFit

Male, 33, 5'7', 190lbs. There done with the vitals.

I was doing CF solo for a while but due to shoulder and back injuries (way before CF) I stopped. I am restarting after taking over a year off of CF and 8 months of doing my own thing.

I was hesitant at first but after meeting with 2 of the trainers at my local box, I feel I can get back on this horse. Going solo was a great way to start but I didn't have the fundamentals down and that was my detriment.

I'm starting my RAMP next week and I'm going to go from my current diet, calorie counting/eating what I want, to a 40%/30%/30%.

During my last CF I was on The Zone with no guidance and it turned out badly. So I'm reluctant to try it again but I'm not going to give up that easy.

I want to get down to my ideal weight, 155lbs-160lbs, and pass a AF PT test. The last was something I struggled with during my enlistment.

Can't wait!

Re: Restarting CrossFit

Good luck Kyle!

Clear goals and a simple plan...no reason you shouldn't get there.

I'm 32 and just starting to reintroduce CF after a two year lay off due to glandular fever (think you guys call it 'mono').

Stick with it, it's a long long road and your training career is still young!

Re: Restarting CrossFit

So it's been almost a month since I restarted my CF journey. I finished the RAMP program at my box and have done about 2 weeks of scaled WODs. I'm loving it again!!

My coaches are all amazing and have helped me in more ways then I can count. Everyone at my box has been supportive, even from day 1. I remember doing a RAMP WOD and having someone, besides my coach, cheering me on. Still no clue who that was LOL.

I've lost 2 inches from my waist and 18 lbs as of today. I was able to wear a new shirt I bought without fear of popping the buttons off. Maybe time for me to buy a tighter belt.

I wish everyone the best who is starting their own CF journey!

As Coach Chris says, "You don't have to be a masocist but it helps!"

Re: Restarting CrossFit

Good on ya! Just want to encourage anyone getting "back on the horse". Take it one day at a time and you'll hit your goals. They're focused and precise.

Best of luck to you!
