Re: Just reached my goal!! Before and after pictures

Got my bodyfat measured for the first time. The method was a skinfold pinch method. Pinched in 7 locations.

It's not the most precise method but I thought I would give it a try since I just started my 30 days paleo challenge. Gonna do it again after a month to see if there is any change.

The BF was 12.8%! Surprised me alot atleast....

Most fat on my belly(20%) offcourse(I had a big belly)

Re: Just reached my goal!! Before and after pictures

Been a long time since I've posted here... things got very busy after I started the University here in Iceland (studying Law) but I've kept on CrossFit-ing like a maniac.

Here is a recent picture, taken in the rope climb / clean Team WOD at the CrossFit Games.

Oh yeah... I COMPETED AT THE CROSSFIT GAMES!!

Results have been pretty good. Since I'm a bit heavy I've been focusing on getting stronger because I'm not able to keep up with the lighter guys when it comes to BW stuff. So I'm working on doing strict pull ups and dips and stuff like that. I'm nowhere near as good as I want to be, I'm still struggling with muscle ups and hand stand push ups.

Did Fight Gone Bad the other day though and I scored 385rx which is pretty good for an "ex-fatty"

Also did CrossFit total not to long ago and scored just over 1000lbs. It should be even higher now, I will do another test soon.

In my opinion I have two options now... get lighter and lose strength so that I can compete with the 80-90kg guys or try to maintain my weight and get stronger. Current weight is 102kg and that's abit heavy. To be this heavy and still be able to keep up with the lighter guys I would need to be Rob Orlando strong

We will see.... I would like to get down to maybe 92-95kg in the next few months.
