4/18/2016

Cynthia and I had a solid workout.  It was good.   I truly love to workout!  But i need to keep perspective and I need to challenge myself to eat healthier.

We walked 1 mile:

Cynthia learned the form for the front squat and back squat.

I did 5 X 5 of back squat of 185

Metcon: no time, 5 rounds

Row 250 meters

5 KB snatches Nick 53 lbs. Cynthia 24 lbs

cool down 1/2 mile

Overall good workout.  I am really proud of Cynthia!  She is making great progress especially on getting the form down on the lifts!  Great Job Babe!  i just hope some day you grow to like training!

A new beginning: Day 1

4/16/2016

First I want to apologize for stopping the blog without notice.  Life has gone down a road that was to say the least, intense and this dropped off the radar.   I trained hard over the last three years but about 4 months ago I had serious numbing in the fingers of both my hands and about 6 weeks ago I decided to stop doing crossfit because I wanted heal up properly, and the high impact was not working. So I chose to step away.  However, I have continued to train doing stuff that was less impactful. 

Plus, I am workout with my girlfriend Cynthia.  She is a person who does not like to workout, but she knows she needs to workout for health reasons.  She was bullied as kid by ‘jocks’ and she never really worked out, so training is a totally new experience that she is not really sure about.  The intimidation factor is huge and is a process we are working out.  Any encouragement would be great!!!!!!!!

We started this process over four months ago with a lot of start and stops but during that time she has lost 30 lbs. already, and I am extremely proud of her for this accomplishment.  But she is unsure if the process is really working.   I can see the progress.

 Also, l need to get back in the flow of training and better dieting.   So I asked Cynthia if we could start blogging our training to make us accountable.

I love tabatas and this was fun.   Both areas I need to work on.  Double unders are just difficult and hands stands are a really tough movement for a big guy like me.

Guess you’ll have to come in to find out what it means.I enjoyed the runs and the moements were solid!
