    So I started on a zone diet on march 1. I weighed 216 lbs and BF was ~21%

    I got on the scale this morning and I am down to 198 lbs and BF ~19%

    The BF’s come from “Mastering the Zone” and would seem to be fairly accurate (based on having the BF done previously)

    The clothes that i was wearing 2 ms ago are pretty much falling off me. I was wearing a 36 waist, but now my 34’s are loose.



    Great job James. Keep it up!


    Nice work!


    another update

    scale this morning read 196 😆

    i did nancy last night

    5 rounds for time


    15 OHS w/25#


    I did this same routing on may 2nd

    at that time i used a fence post that weighed about 15lbs

    that time 16:05

    so 1:04 faster in 19 days, that after a some really good workouts over the past 4 days.

    for those just starting out, keep going, the progress will come quicker than you think can happen and you will really begin to feel the benefits in all that you do.

    i also wanted to add that when i started this i had an extremely bad case of bicep tendonitis in my left shoulder. at this point, i have very limited pain in that shoulder and it doesn’t bother me during or after a workout.




    So right after the last post, I had to have surgery on my left shoulder. Tore the labrum playing ice hockey. I have spent about the last 2 years in varying amounts of pain, most notably with arthritis in that shoulder. I spent last year cycling and lost about 25 lbs. Over the winter I only gained back 10, so this year i am ahead of schedule.

    I found an old crossfit article that I had saved about ROM and shoulder injuries. I started to follow it and I have not felt this good in 2 years. Yesterday I was able to do 60 wall ball throws with a 20 lb ball. Not too shabby.

    So that is what brings me back here. I am going to start with L1D1 and just take it easy. I need to be able to get this shoulder strength back. So hopefully this will help

    Glad to see this site still around


    I admire your determination.

    I hope I never have to come back from an injury like that, but if I do, I hope I come back as strong as you!


    Thanks Matt, hope you don’t have to go through that either, not fun.

    So, Weds I did L1D1 and did 10 rounds in 10 minutes. Starting slowly, just trying to nurse back into this. I also did 30 knees to elbow.

    I played hockey last night and this morning I did the following


    400m run, 20lb overhead squats and burpees. Man that was rough. Plus 30 knees to elbows.

    Feeling good. Tomorrow I am going to go with l1d1 and see if I can go for 15 minutes. I hate having to go slow, but I know it is for the best



    I tore the labrum in my left shoulder doing Judo years ago, take it easy and let it heal well.
