cant do no meat. I'd rather die a couple years early than give up meat

I havent given meat up; just the documentary scared me. lol
i'll still eat the hell out of some Tamales.

the documentary linked some health problems with meat, although they were a little excessive, it still made me question meat fats and protein. for example; alzheimer's. plaque or proteins destroy the brains in alzheimer's paitients.
animal fats and proteins

I can eat "clean" all I want. It's easy to do. But when I'm out with family FML.

Wait, fried chicken isn't good? Protein bro, protein.

I can't do quinoa, it wrecks my stomach and gives me the shits for a few days. Kale tastes horrible too. I stick with lettuce, peppers, hummus, etc...

CF is not unsafe provided you have a good coach and know your limits. You can hurt yourself with anything if you try hard enough and the competitive nature of CF really pushes people to try harder and therefore go past their limits.

I am aware of this, but much like yoga studios and everything else they blew up in a boom, and its very hard to find a gym that pays attention to form and proper movement. So, with my back issues, I dont subject myself to it. Syphus is very different, and while there is also form to it, itís much easier on the body, while also being set up in as competitive manner. And itís really nice because no work out is ever the same. Its a different set of parameters every time.

a scientific paper was released yesterday stating that a failing kidney can let excess amonia and urea build up in the body and wreak havoc on the brain, leading to alzheimer's.
Whew, I just gotta take care of my kidneys

When I did HIIT, the instructor never personalized the workouts and thus a lot of people that were long time members remained looking the same. When they put on weight he'd blame their diet but even so your body adapts and you have to put in more work just to maintain. One great thing I liked about CF was named workouts so that you can log your times and push yourself to improve on it rather than throwing together a bunch of random exercises. It's why lifters see gains too because it's like ok last year I benched 200 3x, this year 5x, etc.

What is syphus training anyways? I tried to read on it and it's blocked at work

then you got wrong. You donít HAVE to compete. I donít. But it can create a little friendly competition or give you a way to track your own progress.
But the idea is to be encouraging and help your fellow work out peeps. And they do. Itís all very positive. No one is acting like their shit smells sweeter.

Sarlacc, did you quit lifting weights entirely? I watched the video and the other where he compares to CF. Basically it's a very different and I will say creative circuit/HIIT. Some of those movements looked tricky so be definitely be careful. Plus an hour of HIIT is pretty intense. I shed like 40lbs with 20 min HIIT but obviously not all programming is alike. You definitely will shed fat/muscle initially. If he mixes it up enough (I like how WODs are named after Mountains), hopefully you can sustain that weight loss and then mold it to an athletic shape rather than a guy who's just not fat. Also your BP, heartrate, etc should improve.

No, my friend is a camera guy like me and he is always on a show, so he can only run this on the weekends or weeks when he has off, so unlike the other typhus gyms that run everyday, I only do this once a week. I use it to try and supplement bike riding and the gym. But I have backed off from lifting a lot...with the exception of certain exercises.

And I'm always careful, and the nice thing is every exercise has modifications if something isn't right for you, but thats only happened to me once. The other nice thing is no "mountain" is ever the same. The owner is obsessed with this and spends hours everyday laying out each days class, nothing is ever recycled. Your muscles are always betting tricked.

And I'm terrible at it, I just dont have the lung capacity. I can ride bike for 30 miles no issues or rock the elliptical...but this winds the fuck out of me. I come in dead last every time. My friend's mom in her 60's blows past me. But I dont sweat it, its a fucking hard workout, and my legs are always shot for the rest of the day after. Apple watch says I burn 5-600 calories every time.

I'm also in a heavy period right now. I fell off the wagon a bit this year and got a little bloated. And my workouts are inconsistent. I try and go at 3x a week. Kids and home life get in the way of going more. And if I'm working forget it.

Is what it is right now, at least I'm trying to do stuff.

A good crossfit coach is worth their weight in gold. I go to a fairly cheap Crossfit Box with limited equipment, but our head coach is amazing, and has done a lot with what we have

That one was actually quite fun. Now begins the shitty part of upping my game for the new year. Trying to get a 200+ power clean, 315 DL, and some bar muscle ups this year. I know I'm strong enough to do them, it's just the coordination of the movements that's tough for me.

You'll hit that 315 DL very easily. Most novice lifters accomplish that within months. Just keep practicing that form and watch some powerlifter videos for proper DL form.

I know I can do it, it's just in my head at this point. I tried 300x3 last week and couldn't lift it off the ground. Took off the 2.5's and picked it up no problem lol.

The bigger one will be the power clean. I'm stuck at 175 and have been for a bit. I almost hard 185 last week though.

I think most basic 5x5 programming on a normal lifter and maybe someone in their 20s can squat 315 and DL 405 in around a year. Now Sam does CF also so he has extra work and needs extra recovery so he might not get to 315 as fast as someone doing a regular 5x5. Having said that, if you're getting 295 for 3, you can probably already get 315 and it's mental/form. Lord knows you got the strength since you're already doing 234124 burpees a day

It's totally a mental thing on several fronts. I know I can get 185 on power clean because I can easily get the bar high enough, just need to be more comfortable with getting under it. Ditto for squats and DL.

And burpees are the worst...until they program in box over burpees. You can't imagine the pain until that happens.

Also, no longer in my 20's...
