It is the manner in which the opinion was expressed:

Being that negative, condescending, and sexist is crap. The objectification of women, and the negativity in general just doesn't belong here. This is a thread about accomplishments. If your comment isn't supportive, then don't say it.

If you're aren't being positive, than don't say anything.

back on topic.

my penis deadlifted 245 last night for my first try.
not huge (the weight) but it's a good starting number to go off of.

Will be crosfitting tonight.. I hear it's 3 rounds of 30 pullups.. another activity.. and 800m runs in between.

I've only been going for 2 weeks now but I can already say it's doing something. been hovering around my lowest weight since college and that includes a weekend in WV where beer and food were key.

running is the one thing I could do coming into this.. given my running starts to fall apart when I do it mid everything else.

I'm all legs so the lifting activities may go pretty well for me as I get better.. my form is already pretty good it seems. decent flexibility to get low enough to be correct.

the body weight stuff kinda kills me right now.. need to lose some of it. I was 225 around my wedding 2 years ago.. 200 for a while following, now at 190+~.

last night while finding the 1 rep max I forgot to breathe and saw stars.

I was impressed.. very very bright points of light swirling around.

but regardless of that he said I still lifted it ok.. and threw on more weight for another try.

wasn't thinking I'd get it up, but it happened.

FWIW, seeing stars after a heavy deadlift is pretty standard.

You should not be breathing when doing a heavy deadlift. Or squat. Or any lift, really. Take a deep breath into your belly and hold it, keep your back, ass, abs as tight as you can. If you are exhaling whilst moving heavy weight your core is not as tight as it should be.

ok another random question: how many of you CF'ers are on the Paleo diet? i know that a lot of CF'ers swear by this diet but honestly, after doing a lot of research on it, i decided against it. i am quite happy with my current diet/lifestyle and i think that Paleo is not the right thing for me but i am also worried that i will not get the full benefit of Crossfit if i don't do Paleo. am i retarded or over thinking it?

Overthinking. The benefit of one has little to do with the benefit of the other. Although I do think the diet is solid.

thanks guys. i have done a few diets over the years and what i found is that if i am doing a diet which has a lot of restrictions and feel like a diet, i normally start hating it and then i have a hard time keeping it. for the past few months i have been on what i call my current life style which is pretty much 2500 cal a day (what i need in order to lose weight while still being able to have energy) and a 20:30:50 ratio. i only eat healthy food with no junk food, candies and other crap and i eat 3 big meals and 2 small meals in between (raw almonds, tuna etc..). i feel great, i lose weight and it still doesn't feel like a diet since i can pretty much find something to eat anywhere and i have plenty of options even with my hectic schedule.

I think the main problem is thinking of it as a "diet" as opposed to a general way of eating. The overall goal of the Paleo way of eating (only eat things that were available to the hunter/gatherer peoples of our ancestry) is a perfect ideal to shoot for when deciding what to eat. That's the key: you should think of it as a golden ideal to strive for, not a strict, black/white diet that must be adhered to without fail.

Now there are some things that are in contention, like dairy for example. Dairy is something that should be approached on an induvidual basis. Some people can handle dairy with no problems, some people can deal with it in small amounts and some people can't handle it at all. Dairy is almost impossible to avoid in our society, so it could be that you have been eating dairy your whole life even though your body doesn't tolerate lactose well. The best thing to do is to cut dairy out for a few weeks, then start eating it again and see if you notice a difference.

There are other "grey areas" in the Paleo diet, but again, it should all be approached on an individual basis. Experiment and read about it, and figure out what's best for you. Like you said, the way you eat shouldn't be handled in a strict, iron-fisted manner. That's the best way to fall back into bad eating habits. Just try to adhere to the general "paleo" guidelines with your day-to-day meals, and don't beat yourself up about eating something bad occasionally. It's really your daily meals that matter the most. Plan and prepare for the meals that you have direct control over.

good feedback and you are right, the problem is that i can't help but think of Paleo as a diet. here are my main problems with Paleo:

1) dairy- i eat a lot of non fat greek yogurt and i do drink about some non fat milk in my protein shake and a tiny bit in my once a day cup of coffee. i am also having a real hard time accepting the idea that dairy is no good for you even after reading tons research on paleo.
2) grains- i count on grains for a big part of my diet. my breakfast consists of granola and i am used to eating wheat/whole grain for some of my carbs since this is what i did for the past 2 years and also as part of my p90x.

3) the main problem for me is that i think that i will struggle with paleo due to money/time/availability. with 2 kids, 12hour work days, i needed a lifestyle which will allow me to eat healthy while still allow me to be able to find quick meals on the go without breaking the bank. if i don't have a chance to make a big breakfast at home, i just grab a greek yogurt, a granola bar and fruit and bam, great breakfast in the office. if my day is super crazy at work, i run to fridge, grab 2 slices of while grain bread with a slice of turkey and i got myself a lunch.

and btw, i am very comfortable in my diet/lifestyle right now because it also allows me to do anything/ go anywhere to eat with my friends and family. no matter the restaurant or the occasion, i can always find something to eat that matches my needs

Give up the big portions of "grains" and your performance will increase. It's shocking. I didn't notice much of a difference after dropping the dairy. Lot's of people go paleo+dairy with great results.

btw, "low fat and whole grains" is doing it wrong. Very wrong. From the bits of details in that last post, it looks like your current diet is much worse than you realize.

I know it can be tough (and expensive) to find good food or prepare good food. But you gotta at least try. Don't just say **** it, I'll eat like crap all the time because i usually don't have the time.

While you're at it, stop buying the kids cereal and granola. They'll thank you in 15 years.

Yeah, I do granola and milk for breakfast on a pretty regular basis. I could probably cut dairy out completely, but it does make a really convenient compliment to the granola for cereal. Like it's been said, lots of people include dairy in their "paleo" way of eating. Just don't overdo it.

As was also stated, definitely don't worry about "low fat" products...your body needs fat. In fact, you should be getting more calories from fat than you do from carbs.

Cutting grains is key. You should be getting the bulk of your carbs from veggies and fruits. Some granola here and there isn't a big deal, but bread, pasta and most starches should be avoided if at all possible.

Random tips:

- make rolls out of sandwich meat and cheese instead of sandwiches, or use something like lettuce as the "buns"
- if you do have to make a quick stop for fast food, just throw away the bun (and skip the fries of course)
- when potatoes are involved, opt for sweet potatoes if available
- don't be afraid of fat
- if you're on a tight budget (as most people are), going for frozen veggies and meat can be a great way to save money...of course, that means you still have to take the time to prepare them

One of the main reasons it's so important to prepare your own meals is gaining control of the quality of your ingredients. Being able to avoid the hormones and steroids that are found in so many meat and dairy products is vital. Buy local veggies and fruits when you can, and stick to organic when available. Unfortunately, it is more expensive to eat healthy...that's just an unavoidable fact. However, the long term benefits greatly outweigh the costs, IMHO.

like ellys said, avoid the low fat stuff. All companies do is replace fat with sugar....it's much better just to eat the full fat stuff.


As far as paleo, I do NeoPaleo, which is for me is keeping some dairy in my diet(you cant convince me that drinking a glass or two of 2% milk is a bad thing), and I dont completely cut grains. However, the most I'll eat of grain is maybe a slice or two of wheat bread a day. I usually have one piece with my eggs in the morning and then one piece with a can of chicken or with some peanut butter on it as a preworkout snack.

that sounds almost like what I am doing right now exact for the whole low fat crap which I can change.

edit: i will also increase my fruit intake and lower my grains to maybe a tiny amount per day (breakfast).

60 sit-ups
50 double unders (or 150 singles)
40 kb deadlifts
30 push ups with hand lift
20 kb sumo high pull
10 kb walking lunges (really 20 since it was 10 going, then 10 back)
5 burpees facing the bar

I did it in 11:18 which was crap. I did eat since noon so I was getting a bit dizzy and nauseous half way through. My own damn fault. My coach did them in 7:38 I believe which was lightning fast. The class average was about 10:30 with some in the 9's and others in the 11's.

Pulled of a perfect 400 LB deadlift tonight! Super pumped about that! The WOD called for 3-3-2-1-1 but I did 3-3-3-2-1 since I never went for max weight before and kept putting up whatever was on the bar. I definitely think I can do more than 400 but not tonight when there's sprinting involved ! lol

Then we did 3 rounds of:

200 meter hill sprint,
9 hang power snatch
9 presses
(65 LB for both, Rx was 75 LB)

Finished in 7:12 which was way better than I expected since running and I don't get along.

We recently had a long Saturday Team wod which included 400m team runs carrying a 45 lb plate. It was POURING. To make it worse, the trainers had a bunch of water balloons and if during the run anyone on your team got hit by one, the whole team had to stop and do 5 burpees.
