Had to take a week off with a summer cold. But in the middle of that week I suffered through a couple of workouts:

Complete as many rounds as possible 20 minutes of:
95 pound Thruster, 5 reps
95 pound Hang Powercleans, 7 reps
95 pound Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 10 reps

I cut the weight to 75 and got 6 rounds.

Two rounds of:
Right arm barbell push-press 12 reps
Left arm deadlift 12 reps
Run 800 meters
Left arm barbell push-press 12 reps
Right arm deadlift 12 reps
Run 800 meter

Used a 40# DB for push-presses and 95# on the barbell for DL. This took 26:25. I did a round of push-presses with the wrong side and had to repeat. Probably cost me 45 -90 seconds.

That last one was BRUTAL!

I think I'd likely die should I try any of these! Nice work!!

I've been checking the BrandX workouts to see about getting one in here and there to start moving towards Crossfit. Still short on gear and perhaps fitness. So far I've added kettle-bell swings to some of my workouts :oops: Small steps I guess.

Well - it's coming up on the season of anniversaries for me. Tomorrow I've been a CrossFit affiliate for a year. The end of this month I've been married 10 years. March marks my youngest daughter's birthday and two years as a CrossFit level one trainer. April is 3 years since I started with simplefit. May is my eldest child's b'day and 3 years since I did my first pullup. I am getting comfortable in my skin on all of these. Since this is a fitness site, I'll focus on the things related to such.

I joined this sight after mulling over and being intimidated by CrossFit. I found the community here to be VERY welcoming, supportive and sincere. I can't discount how important that was to my being successful in these endeavors.

I was so naive about where I was. I'm realizing now that I was in deep denial about my condition. Fat, weak and getting dangerous. This place likely saved me from diabetes, heart problems, depression...

One of my early concerns was that, as I began to see real changes in my body, I would let vanity dominate as the motivator. I struggled with this a lot as I went into CrossFit. I wasn't aware why until recently.

I love my body. The before and after pics I've posted are a source of pride for me. I now am looked up to and get a lot of comments about my shape. This gave me a HUGE ego! HA! Since I have moved my affiliation to a new location and am making a go of it as a professional CrossFitter, my focus has turned for the better. I am back to the old motivation I originally got from the people on this board. It does me a WORLD of good to hear someone tell me how good I am as a trainer. This is WAY more rewarding than "damn! look at your abs!" (this still helps tho - ;) ) Lately I have gotten a good bit of reinforcement regarding my ability to teach fitness techniques to elite athletes and grandmas with bad backs!

I am a happy man! Keep it up people!

5 rounds for time:
10 snatches (75#)
10 overhead squats (75#)


Can do better than this and will.
