Today Marks My One-Year Anniversary of CrossFit!!

Wow! It’s really hard to believe that one year ago today, I was dragged out of my house at 5:45 AM and thrown into the CrossFit world a few, short minutes later. And what a year it has been. 

One Year Ago
Weight: 185 LBs (and that was down 5-10 LBs from earlier in 2010)
Waist: 37.5 inches

What a Difference a Year Makes
Weight: 165 LBs (ok, it might be 166 this morning because I had some desert yesterday :) 
Waist: 33.5 inches

All my other measurements (biceps, chest, etc.) improved as well but I can’t find them right now … not that it really matters! 

To top off my one year anniversary, I got a new PR on a Narrow Grip Bench this morning! But, best of all, I still suck ass at double unders. In fact, I may actually be worse at them now! In fact, that’s my new goal. To always suck at double unders. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Warm Up:
3x
5 Pull Ups
10 Push Ups
10 Pistols

200 Single Jump Ropes - or - 50 Double Effing Unders

Mobility:
Foam Roller with Bar
PNF stretch (hamstrings)
Shoulders with Kettle Bell

Strength:
1 Rep Max Narrow Grip Bench Press
175 LBS (PR by 10 LBs) 

MetCon
4x
10 Ring Dips
10 Clapping Push Ups
10 Push Press (105 LBs)
20 Sit Ups

Extras:
2x 10 Should Press (75 LBs) 

Result:
15:24 

Holy arm workout, Batman! It was a brutal one after the first round. Good, but brutal. 

Anyway, thanks for the first year and here’s to another great year, CrossFit!
