Re: what 12 weeks of CF did to me.

After the pics, I'm even more jealous. Good work man!

I started off looking almost just like your 1st pic. After a year, I'm somewhere in between... but I've been more focused on getting strong than leaning out. Blowing up all my lifts.

Keep it up! What are your goals at this point?

right now I guess getting my 500m swim under 9 min same with my 1.5 mile run. to be able to do 35 strict pull up before kip. currently doing 27. I haven't tried bb snatches. my shoulder (left) was giving me trouble so I was afraid to really damage it.

Guess that explains the tan

Great results, pics look very impressive.

How did you do in the transformation contest? I doubt many people have the drive to manage that in 12 weeks. Looks like you aren't shorting yourself on the goals either, good luck with those, finishing the Kalsu will be painful

Very nice work. I'm with you on doing Murph, but you can have Kalsu. I'm not touching that one.

DOH! tarting

Tyvm everyone!...I finished 4th in the 30-39 age grouping. I'm happy with the results. I just wish it was 15 week challenge. I look better than I did 3 weeks ago.
