  1. So today I did the PRT. Yesterday I weighed in for it and was pretty pissed off for the rest of the day. Last November we did the PRT and I weighed in at 280 with 22% body fat. Today I weighed in at 250... with 22% body fat! I guess while doing crossfit I've lost 23lbs of muscle/bone and 7lbs of fat. Needless to say I was rather pissed.

    The PRT today went better though, I got 94/98 sit-ups, all 80 push-ups and did the swim in 8:38. The only part I remember about last time was that I intentially didn't max the push-ups in order to do better on the swim and it still took me 10:30. The next step is to get my shoulders to the point that I can do the entire 500 in freestyle after the push-ups and the time will drop some more. Total was a 265 (Ex High), so a few more sit-ups and I'll be into the Outstanding catagory.

    Now if I could just get off the body fat ledge I'd feel much better.

  2. I did the squats and deadlifts - Teresa and I will do the filthy 50 tomorrow.

    5x3 back squat - 315, 365, 385, 405 (pretty sweet), 315

    7x1 deadlift - 315, 365, 385, 405 fail, 405 fail, 385 fail - decided I was too tired to keep going

    60 min soccer


  3. Chris, that is amazing progress. You dropped 15 percent body weight, that is great.

    Please don't worry too much about the stupid body fat stuff. At 73 inches I need to weigh 206 but last year I was at 208. When they roped me they claimed I was at 17 percent body fat, which is total crap. I couldn't have been higher than 10 percent at the time. There is no way you can accurately calculate body fat across the board using neck and waist circumference. It is like using BMI to gauge health across a population, it doesn't work for anyone with any muscle. I only hope I can get excellent high on my next cycle.

  4. What's the PRT? Haven't done one of those in like 3 years...I'll have to get a refresher on how to do it.
