Re: Anyone have before and after crossfit pictures?

Can't wait for an affiliate to open up here in Birmingham. Looks like we have a few on the horizon, but none just yet

Re: Anyone have before and after crossfit pictures?

This is a little embarrassing.

One year into the journey. Not done yet.

Re: Anyone have before and after crossfit pictures?

Mine are at w/f/s: http://public.fotki.com/Photoferret/fitnes/

This is after 12 weeks of Zone. The last 7 of those weeks I have been working exclusively with kettlebells. Following Pavel's Enter the Kettlebell, using this work book (w/f/s): http://www.artofstrength.com/OnlineS...7/Default.aspx

The first 4 weeks are swings and turkish get ups

The final 8 weeks are C&P/pull up ladders, snatches, and swings.

I have been pretty strict about food, but still drinking too much guiness. I have 5 weeks of ETK left, and will not drink during that time.

BF calculator here: (w/f/s)
http://www.drsears.com/ZoneResources...4/Default.aspx

weight - 199 -->> 179
BF% (zone calculated) 31% -->> 22%
LBM 138 -->> 140.4

Inches:
Chest -4.5"
Belly (around umbilicus) -5"
Waist -3"
Butt -2"
Bicep -.5"
Thigh -.5"
neck -.5"

Once the 12 week ETK cycle is over, I am taking a week off, and starting WOD's.

Crossfit led me to kettlebells. I am so grateful for that.

Re: Anyone have before and after crossfit pictures?

Yeah, I limit myself to one night of drinking per week. Usually consisting of white russians, guinness, black and tan (w/ guinness), and Irish car bombs (w/ guinness). Guess we share the same taste for fine beverages. Hopefully I can share in some of your awesome progress, GOOD JOB

Re: Anyone have before and after crossfit pictures?

I'm in the same boat. I've been 1-2% leaner but didn't like the strength loss.

I keep about 5 "lifestyle pounds" with me most of the time. It's like GPP for nutrition; what if the water supply suddenly goes bad and the only thing left is cold beer? You have to be ready for anything.

Good work guys and gals. Looks like everyone that puts the time in is getting results.
