Little bit of background, I got out of the Army in 1997 I was in pretty good shape... After basically not doing anything active for 9 years or so I started fishing again, and since I moved to Colorado I tried hiking into a lake to do some fishing (only about a mile and a half hike) after about 6 breaks I finished the hike and reliezed how bad of shape I was in. So as a starter to get back into shape I started riding the stationary bike at work during my break. I also started researching fitness stuff on the net, reliezed that one big meal a day I had been eating for the last 3 or 4 years (I work nights so it was just easier) was probably not the healthiest choice. So I started eating 5-6 times a day and smaller portions on the main 3 meals. The discovery health ran a special (body challenge) where got 8 weeks free at Bally's so I went in and weighed 173 lbs and had 28% body fat. (I'm 6ft) So after the 8 weeks of walking/running and some weight training (actually those machines) I dropped 11% body fat and 13 lbs.
The free membership is up and I had found an article on crossfit a couple years ago thought I'd give it a try... I was smoked after one round of 45lb overhead walking lunges for 50ft and 21 burpees and couldnt go on, I found this site on their messageboard. Looks like a great way to build upto crossfit. Wasnt sure where to start (level wise) since it was Wednesday I did a level 4 day 2 workout, think I will stay at this level for a couple weeks atleast, it took me a while to recover from that workout.
3-21 Day2 Level 4 5 rounds in 6:15 - very, very wore out after that workout
3-23 Day3 Level 4 2:52 - was shocked that the 41 squats really didnt hurt until 35ish
