Remember that body comp I mentioned in my last post? (Here’s a refresher in case you missed it.) I’m happy to say the results were positive.
I don’t have the exact numbers in front of me right now, but I remember the highlights.
Weight: Lost 6lbs
Body Fat: Lost 5%
Inches: Lost many places — most dramatic loss was in the hips
Gained inches in my shoulders
I’ll blog my exact numbers when I get a copy of the assessment. All in all, I’m really happy with my results.
I’m going to take a few days to look at everything from this challenge — body composition, strength, speed, nutrition — and set new goals. It doesn’t end here. And I don’t plan on waiting for another formal challenge to start going for them.
In the meantime, I have just a couple more days left in the I AM CROSSFIT EPOC Challenge. On Wednesday, Steph, Beth and I got together for our last strength and met-cons.
3 x 16 weighted lunges (Dumbbells M 45# / W 30#)
I used a 65# bar for the first set of 16, then switched with Beth and used 30# DBs for the last 2 sets. I had trouble getting my knee to the ground. These were very hard.
Ugh. This was really hard. Andy reminded me as I was in the middle of it that they were the last burpees of the challenge, and they all cheered me on as I struggled through rounds 2 and 3. It felt really good to have such support, and I don’t think I would have done as well as I did if I didn’t have my cheerleaders.
I’m pretty sure this WOD and the lunges affected my performance on Thursday morning. But more on that in my next post.
