I am by no means the person to imitate when it comes to form and Crossfit know-how. I still have so much to learn.
I’ve only been crossfitting for just over a year now- but in comparison to myself previously, the strides I have made with strength are HUGE. I mean, almost unbelievable. I truly wish I had some video of me “working out” at crossfit when I first started attending in January 2012. It was pretty sad to say the least.
My muscle tone was very poor due to several years of chronic illness that made it so that I couldn’t be active. This was not to say that I didn’t have much muscle- rather it was that my muscle hadn’t been USED the way it should in a long time.
I have been consistently attending crossfit 3-4 times a week now for 14 months, with 2 breaks for 2 human chorionic gonadotropin rounds- one round of HCG Injections was 3 weeks long and I was gone from crossfit entirely for 4 whole weeks that time, and the second time was for 6 full weeks, which I was gone from crossfit that entire period as well.
Here’s a little clip of doing overhead squats last week at crossfit- I’m kind of proud of it because overhead squats are typically pretty difficult to do with any significant amount of weight since you’re holding the weight IN THE AIR and it requires quite of a bit of stabilization to be able to do it.
I post these clips to show 2 things:
1st that doing this diet protocol did NOT “starve” me. I’ve kept off almost ALL my fat loss from HCG this past year while getting stronger at crossfit and eating a healthy amount and variety of foods.
2nd that so much can be accomplished if you pursue not just weightloss but fitness. And there isn’t just one fitness path for everyone, I get that. For me, Crossfit is just awesome. For others, there may be something else that really makes you feel good.
