Today at CrossFit we 1RM on back squat. I’m not sure if I have ever done a 1 RM before. I got 185 which I was pretty stoked about! I think that is a pretty good starting place and I’m interested to see how my numbers go up as I get stronger this summer. I’m hoping to focus a lot more on lifting so I think they should go a lot :)
"Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all."
I have gotten behind on posting my workouts but after finding the picture on the left I felt like doing a little side by side comparison. For the entire decade of my 30’s I had a gym membership, bike, you name it but it was not until my 40’s and finding the crossfit community that provided me with support, motivation and accountability was I able to regain my health.
Further proof - CrossFit does a body (mind and soul) good.
14 years ago, I was in a medical facility preparing for a routine foot surgery. I was weighed just before heading to the operating room and the scale read 199.9. I was 12 years old. I had no idea what that meant at that age, I just knew I was different from my friends. I never saw a number that low again.
Until this morning. I weighed in at 198.8. It’s been a long 14 years. But after 10 months of extremely hard work, both physical and mental, I’ve not only reached that, I’ve beat it.
