Hi everyone!

First of all, i have to congratulate the creator of this website...i was reading about Crossfit workouts for the last couple of months but couldn´t find a way to start from the bottom.

I´m 31 years old and in the last couple of months because of stress related factors i´ve reached 231 lbs ( i´m 5ft 7)...

Well after this short intro..straight to the workouts.

Week 1 -

April 16 L1 - D1 ----> 22 rep (with a lot of pauses and of course without being able to do a proper pull up, so just jumped up the bar doing chin ups and slowly fell down)

April 18 L1 - D2 ---> 16m 33 s

also trying to walk further and further every day.....

Hi Luis, welcome !

I also walk every evening back from work and it feels great.

I think it's a good complement to this workout.

Have fun !

Welcome! Be patient and take your time. Strength will increase and weight will decrease. Read up on intermittent fasting in the Nutrition forum.

Thanks for all the support!

Week 1

April 20th L1D3 - 10 Chin-Ups (just jumping up and slowly falling)
21 Push-Ups ( 6 in proper form, 15 with knees)
21 Squats (using a large pilates ball)

all done in 2m 33s

Felt really good but also quite tired (i think i have to adjust my sleeping patterns)

Concerning the diet , i´ve been trying the Paleo/IF for the last week...and it goes ok but every 3 days i have a relapse and have to eat some kind of bread or pasta.....but i´m trying to understand why and go back on track..

i was a vegetarian for a few years and always loved a good pasta and its going to be a slow path for me.....
