Measurements and the Pre-WOD

17 Feb

Yesterday was the lead-up day to the the challenge, which starts today. We started at the pubic market where Melissa introduced us to some of the vendors she regularly visits and we got some great food to get us going. Then it was on to the gym for measurements and the baseline workout. We’ll do the same measurements and workout again at the end of the challenge to see how far we’ve come.

The Measurements

Height: 6’2″
Weight: 256 lbs
Age: 35
Body fat %: 30.8
BMI: 32.4

The Workout Results

Strength: Max effort pull-ups
Results: 8 kipping pull-ups, Rx

MetCon: For time, 12-9-6 reps each of

  • 70# KB swings
  • 115# clusters
  • Burpee Box Jumps 24″

With a 12 minute time cap
Results: 11:01 Rx

So, I’m not thrilled about my body fat percentage, but think how bad it must have been 6 months ago. The workout, on the other hand, I was pretty happy with because I honestly didn’t think I would finish under the cap.

Goals for the end: 12+ pull-ups, metcon time under 10 mins, weight under 240, body fat under 28% as a minimum, but hopefully at/under 25%.

    You forgot one goal: get Ewa to finish the GoDdAMn WOD under 12 minutes.

      True 🙂 Try not ripping your hand open immediatley prior to the WOD and maybe you’ll do better next time. Or, just suck it up. But seriously, you haven’t re-done it yet? I figured your OCD would have you in there the next day trying again 🙂 Don’t stress, it’s not good for you – you’re gonna crush it next time, and then we’ll all accuse you of sandbaggin’ it!
