CFT Decline

An observation that I have made regarding my CFT numbers is that every time I do a CFT I am getting a lower score than the last one.
I have been crossfitting and zoning for approx 10 weeks now. My initial score ten weeks ago was 700 at 207lbs body weight. Today I scored 655 at 189lbs body weight so the biggest variable is body weight. I have lost nearly 20lbs in ten weeks and gone from 23%bf to 18%bf.

Have other people made similar observations and when do you start to bounce back in strength?

Re: CFT Decline

Sleep - averaging around 8 hrs

Rest - Chill out quite a bit when not working.

Diet - Zone around 19 blocks, pretty strict.

Re: CFT Decline

Your strength to bodyweight ratio has improved from 3.38 to 3.465.

Assuming you're not kidding . . . divide the total weight in your CFT by your bodyweight.

If you were kidding . . . sorry. I'm severely impaired when it comes to recognizing sarcasm.

Re: CFT Decline

With the amount of weight you've lost, I think a loss of strength should be expected. Doesn't mean that at your current weight, you can't get back up to where you were.

Edit: congrats on the weight loss!
