I had to quit our box. Too much crappy drama going on, my wife and I got dragged in to a situation that we had nothing to do with despite staying out of it.

No idea what to do now.

Vostok, whatever you do, try to find another box to go to. One can do CrossFit on their own but it's much better to be on the group setting and with a coach. If you live in a good sized metropolitan area finding another box should be fairly easy.

I started with that and will soon be up to 405lbs so I can do my heavy deads at home.

I agree, try to find another box. I work out of town M-F, so I can only hit my local box on Fri nights or Sat. I *try* to do the workouts during the week, but things like box jumps, wall balls, kettlebell, etc, can be a challenge at a "normal" workout facility.

Great job...just not quite good enough.

Your 355x1 = 1.7574 times bodyweight

My 265x1 = 1.7666 times bodyweight




(but seriously that's a hell of a lot of weight)

ARRRRGH, something to reach for. 405 is my eventual goal, like every other fatty I guess.

edit: Wait a minute you weigh 150 lbs? Frigging twig. I must break you.

I know, right? 405 would be 1.8x my BW. I'd like to see 450 to get to a nice round 2x BW before the end of the year. We'll see - that might be ambitious...

Yeah...lol. I want to gain weight but can't, so I hover between 150 and 153 @ 8-11% BF. I'm 5'9".

My current PRs on weightlifting:

Shoulder Press = 145
Push Press = 155
Push Jerk = 125 (It's a mental thing)
Weighted Pullups = 110
BP = 210
DL = 265
Back Squat = 195
Front Squat = 155

You aren't a shift worker. Working a regular 8-5 job, your sleep and eat schedule is static. On top of that you do them "sometimes." Do them all the times, rotate your schedule and eat on the run and we'll talk

Although looking at their recent program it does look like they've been reigning it in a bit, however you still need to have your eat and sleep dialed.

There is no fitness workout that is out of reach to anyone. You just gotta have the discipline to do it.

We'll agree to disagree. Robb Wolf wrote an article on the very thing, give it a read. Eating and sleeping are every bit as important as the workout itself.

my dad was a shift worker for years and he found time to win a few regional bodybuilding championships. Even up until he left the plant and started his own business about 12 years ago(he was about 44), he still found time to workout regularly. People will find time to work out if they really want to.

I'll actually lean towards ETD's side if we are talking strictly SealFit and not just CrossFit. Most of their workouts tend to be at least an hour long if not more, and that's without the warm-up.

So let's just say it takes you 15 minutes to get to your gym/box, another 5 to change, 10 minute warm-up, 1 hr workout, 5 minute cool down, 5 minute shower, 5 minute change, 15 minutes home/back to work. You are talking about 2 full hours.

That's tough for anyone to do, regardless of the schedule they keep.

Flip Side:

Sealfit is pretty hardcore so if you are doing it then you know the time commitment and physical commitment and it won't matter if you are a shift worker or not.

10 rounds
135 deadlift x 15
pushups x 15

Pushups were difficult for some reason

Here's today's SEALFit WOD:

Baseline: Run 400M. 4 rounds Bar Bell Complex 75 - 105#. Run 400M

Work Capacity: AMRAP 30 minutes:

5 x Squat Clean (95#)
10 x Double Under
15 x KB Swing (55#)
-----(segment)-----

Strength: Work to 1RM Thruster

Stamina: 4 rounds, not timed: 3 x Thruster @ 85% 1RM, 3 x rope ascent, Sand Bag carry 200M

Durability: 3 mile run at moderate pace. 4 sets of 50 4-count flutter kicks. Eccentric stretch.





That would take me the better part of 2 hrs to complete, I'd wager (not counting changing/showering/etc).

Should have been pretty quick though. Sub 20 minutes?

I'm guess the first 5-6 rounds were done in 8 minutes or less?

actually yeah that would take a while to do. That's one of the longer ones Ive seen in a while. What takes so long is when a workout has you working to your 1RM, and then do rounds with that and then something else.

Our WOD today is:

3 rounds
15 Hang Cleans with 135lb
15 Burpees

Should be a nice cool down workout to end the week.

Actually, looking at that again, I'd bet that would take well over 2hrs to complete.

The AMRAP is 30 mins. Figure 24-25 mins for the run (if not more by that point of the workout) and you're at an hour already.

Then you have to add the baseline/warmup, the work to 1RM, the 4 rounds of thruster/rope ascent/sandbag carry, plus four sets of 50 4-count flutter kicks and THEN stretching/cool down.

Lunacy.

Yeah, I will agree that SealFit WODS are sometimes too much. you do so much work and expend so much energy that the last half of the workout doesnt benefit you much because you're already exhausted and you lose intensity. The SealFit WOD's Ive done have been in the 45 minute to 1 hour 15 minute range, and IMO, those are awesome, because you can stay intense through the whole thing.

First five rounds averaged slightly above a minute each. From there my pushups fell off, haven't been doing them but I flew threw every dl set. Timer goofed up when I picked it up to look at it, but yea sub 20

Hamstrings are like baseballs right now.
