Today's Weigh-In: 219.4 lbs.
5-Day Average: 220.2 lbs.
My average went up, but my weight itself went down (by over 2 lbs). I did my body fat measurement today and it was between 21% and 22%. That makes me happy to know, because I haven't lost any weight for a while now, but the last time I measured it (at the same weight) it was between 24% and 25%, so I'm still losing fat, just not weight. I'm almost out of the "danger zone" of body fat percentage (anything over 20% is considered unhealthy/dangerous).
I feel like I'm leaning out quite a bit as well. My arms and pecs especially, as I can now see definition when I flex, and I can move my pecs using only my mind :-)
Today's workout was fun. It's called Lynne, and it consists of:
Body-weight bench press and pullups, 5 sets each for maximum reps
Basically you do a set of as many bench presses as you can do of your body weight, then as many pullups as you can, for 5 rounds. It's not for time, so you can take lots of rest. I had to scale down the weight because I can't bench press 220 pounds more than once or twice at most, so I went with 185 lbs. (a more realistic body-weight for me). I also used the assistance band for pullups, but I used the smallest one, so I'm almost at the point where I will be able to do the exercises with unassisted pullups. Here are my rounds/reps:
The bench press was hard, but I pushed it and did my best. I felt great afterwards, good and strong. I love the variance of the CrossFit workouts, and I really liked the break from intense cardio as well. Can't wait to see what they've hatched up for tomorrow.
