9 months to add 125 is pretty awesome for a cross fitter. I'll say this the road from 400 to 500 for me was a bitch. I deadlifted for the first time since my 502pr last week and could only pull 455 (beltless). Body doesnt want to keep the deadlift around.

I've been eating a bit less tho, trying to keep my weight right where I'm at

i hear you on the diet thing. i got down to 183 and didn't like how i felt or looked (i am 6'2) so i gained back to 190 and i feel much better. i need to get used to eating so much since it seems like i need to eat a ton to not lose weight which is a new problem for me.

Heh, I'm 28 lbs more than you and half an inch shorter but we obviously carry our weight different as 210 is about as low as I'd want to be leaned out. Any less and I just look like a lanky runner with a big squatters ass lol

I think that I want to be at 200 but I need to add bulk and not fat. Even at 190, people constantly comment that I look a bit sickly.

Squat, press and deadlift every week. Limit your metcons to 6-10 minutes and only 2-3 a week and you'll put on healthy bulk if you eat for it.

I can't press due to a shoulder injury. I do however squat and deadlift twice a week and do 2 normal crossfit wods 2 times a week. As for the food, I am eating strict paleo but I started eating more dense carbs on heavy lifting days which does seem to help,

Just make sure you're getting the calories if you eat paleo. By basically restricting carbs, you cut out a lot of calories if you don't shift them to fats or proteins.

See I'm a big believer in we are all 'configured' differently which means certain lifts will always be a challenge.

You have 50lbs+ on me and have been lifting forever, but my deadlift is ~425-450lb and will stay around there regardless of the last time I did heavy singles.

Now my back squat if I don't back squat all the time? It's a painful process. The worst though is my bench. Most guys destroy the bench. Me at the height of my lifting in college? I benched with 100lb dumbbells, but have NEVER ONCE been able to barbell bench 225lbs.

Compare that to my squat and my deadlift and its broke as a joke.

Yep. I eat a good amount of fruits for the carbs, way too much chicken than I care to admit for protein and I get plenty of fats from nuts, oils etc..

I should probably start eating paleo, or at least in the paleo direction. My mental blocks are that I don't believe some forbidden foods are bad (beans, modest amounts of dairy, modest amounts of good carbs like oatmeal). I'm not a huge fan of eggs, and I don't have to kind of job where I can sit around eating all day. I also get tired of eating the same things over and over, usually after the third time of eating something in a week I'm done with it for a while.

How are you fitting paleo into life, instead of planning life around paleo? Did you go strict paleo or ease into it?

It's really no different than the high protein, complex carb, low fat diet that I was always on when lifting at least in terms of food prep. Now if you're not used to dieting, food prep is going to take more time than just grabbing things and going out the door - but it's worth it. If it means you have to cook for the week on Sunday, then so be it.

I think you'll find that the beans and dairy actually effect you far more than you realize. Can you eat them? Sure. Just as someone who has had a ton of GI type issues, I know how much better Ive been since eating paleo. Everyone is shocked when I tell them that. The only times I have issues is when I don't eat paleo.

What burnout said. Eating Paleo has had a huge impact on my life and especially on my health. When you commit to it, it forces you to actually think about what you put into your body and after a while, it becomes your natural selection. Once you understand how certain things affects you and you know first hand that not eating them makes you feel better, it stops wing a diet and becomes way of life. I used to have tons of GI issues and was actually on daily meds for heartburn and acid reflux. Since switching to paleo, I have been on zero meds and haven't had a single heartburn in over 6 months.

The problem for most people is that they think that you have to give up stuff for paleo which is not entirely true. For example, people always ask me if I don't miss desserts and the answer is that I don't have to since there are plenty of desserts that you can make that are still better for you. I also still enjoy the occasional "bad" foods but i do it in such frequency that it barely has any affect. If I go out with the wife to an amazing restaurant and they have something that I love, I will eat it no problem.

With that said, paleo does require commitment and some extra work but that is easily doable. On Sunday, I cook tons of items that carry me through the week. Eggs, chicken breasts, steamed veggies, etc... So the rest of the week is actually quite easy.

As for the part about certain things being bad for you, people are free to believe what they want but I can tell you from my own experience that grains were extremely bad for me and that cutting them made a huge difference.

Its about knowing what you can eat without adverse reaction (inflammation.) I for instance have zero milk intolerance so I drink it like water but really limit my grains.

Simply stated I try and get as many proteins as I can from meat and avoid processed foods. I survived CFIT pushing zone and I'll survive paleo, but eating clean will always be relevant.

Definitely agree, created equal is the phrase of an enabled generation.

Do you have a short torso and long arms by chance?

Arms are long for my size but I'm not sure how the torso compares for my size.

I have unusually strong lats. Doing reps of pull ups with 100lbs is a challenge but at one point I could still crank out 4-5 reps at 100lbs+

I came back and PR'd on Friday with a 270lb front squat.

Didn't try for the 275 that day.

Chiro tells me heavy maxes and reps are out for a little bit until I get my lower back situation corrected a bit.

God bless you. I refuse to do any of the WODs with such high reps for complex movements even if they are lightweight.

Today was my Navy physical fitness assessment which consist of as many situps you can do in two minutes, as many pushups you can do in two minutes and a 1.5 mile run. I scored 110 situps, 112 pushups and 9:28 for my 1.5er.
I was upset I didn't get maximum points for my run time, I needed a 9:20 to score max for my age bracket. All and all, I did my best for today, but I have a goal to beat 6 months from now. Next challenge is this coming wednesday one hour burpee challenge. I'm shooting for 300 and then some.

LOL!!!

Theres nothing I hate more than backing down from a challenge... And of course I don't like losing...
As much pain as I know i'm gonna put myself through physically, it will be a good mental challenge as well.
I know a guy that did a thousand and said he could not walk for 3 days... I'm trying to not get psyched out!
Anybody do anything similar? any recommendations? suggestions? supplements? lemme know.

300 is one every 12 seconds right? Not too bad, especially compared to the Butler mile. I know I'd take an ice bath after

Unimaginable. This week we did partner burpees for 5 minutes where we were conjoined side by side at the waist with a rubber band. The good news is that I partnered up with a gorgeous girl. The bad news is that said gorgeous girl is in incredible shape. Actually, that was good news too because she pushed my lazy, tin-man butt.
