Found this site while reading about Crossfit and this looked like a very good place to start.
About me…35, 190lbs, 5’10” and vastly out of shape…would like to lose weight, lower my body fat % dramatically, and get into better shape. It would be nice to fit into some of the size 32 jeans I still have…
There is some work to do along the lines of diet as well, not so much a quality issue as a portion size issue and habitual snacking on sweets.
Starting on L1D1…20x using reverse push-ups as the substitution for pull-ups (3:1). Not sure how to feel about this as reading the workout it didn’t seem that bad but after doing D1 I felt it all over…even my quads.
A little worried about the push-ups, found my wrists were quite sore. Hopefully this will improve.
9mins 15 secs with slow controlled movements and reverse push-ups at 3:1 for pull-ups.
Was very surprised that the workout left me as sore as it did…maybe it means it is working.
Will have to look for resistance bands for assisted pull-ups as the pull-up bar is the least used item in our work gym while the squat rack is probably the most (that is where I have been doing the reverse pull-ups).
