  • I jumped on the 24" box! When I started CF a little over a year ago I fell doing a box jump and I landed in a pile of dumbells that I had put next to my box for the weight sit ups. Needless to say it really shook me up and I refused to try anything higher than 16"...until Monday. Not sure I could do 24" in a WOD, but I am…
  • I created a CrossFit exercise as well. I wear a HRM and I just adjust the time to match the calories burned. So if the WOD took 15 minutes but I burned a ton of cals I will log 20 min since I don't really care about the time as much as the cals. But I also log a bit less than the HRM shows since there is sometimes some…
  • Neigh! I would love some more friends so feel free to add me! I started out riding hunters when I was a kid but I switched to dressage after college and love it. I was having trouble fitting in both my tall boots and my half chaps so I decided I had to make a change. I began CrossFitting and watching my diet. I really had…
  • I started wearing a HRM a few months ago mainly to track calories burned. It varies GREATLY WOD to WOD so I'm glad I have it. What I am finding more interesting lately is my max HR during the WOD. Last week we did Nancy on Monday (lots of running) and later in the week we did a WOD with bear complex and slam balls. HR was…
  • I've been CrossFitting since January. I am typically the largest, slowest person in my "class", usually finishing a timed WOD 2 to 5+ minutes slower than every one else and usually at lighter weights. I find that most everyone is very friendly and supportive, yelling encouragement to me after they are done. I just scale…
  • Thanks guys! Now that I think about it, we usually eat the worst on the weekends and then I CrossFit on Monday morning so that probably has a lot to do with it. Will try to experiment with food this weekend and see how it goes next Monday. I also realized that I stopped drinking the protein shake after workouts because I…
  • I just got a Polar HRM last week so I've started tracking cals that way. I had been logging it as Circuit Training - General. Turns out, the cals estimated on MFP for circuit training are almost exactly the same as what the HRM shows.
  • I started Crossfit in January 2012 going two times a week. I am 39 years old, female and very out of shape. Walking was definitely an issue the first few weeks! LOL! After about 2-3 months I started getting comments that I looked like I had lost weight, was looking good, etc. AT that point I had probably lost 4-5 pounds,…
  • Did it June 18 Back Squat - 130 Press - 65 Dead Lift - 175 Total - 370 Press is so hard for me and my weak shoulders, but I think I can get close to 200 in the dead lift. That's my goal at least.
  • I have the same issue with cardio endurance. For me, I know that I don't perform well in the heat. Since Houston is heat 9+ months out of the year, I decided that losing weight was probably going to help the most, which is how I ended up on MyFitnessPal. My plan for this summer is to just struggle though as best I can, try…
  • Glad to know I'm not the only one! I fell face first into a pile of dumbbells, glasses went flying, I was writhing around on the floor in pain. I am now terrified of box jumps! I will jump on 4 45# plates (approx 12 inches) but but a box in front of me and I quiver in fear. :grumble:
    in box jumps! Comment by FloEd June 2012
  • Ok, those are awesome! :happy:
  • I'd love some buddies too! Today's WOD almost killed me - I think the heat and humidity add a level of difficulty.
  • I too started in running shoes (in January) and got some Inov8s for Mother's Day :-) The main reason I wanted to stop using my running shoes was for the lifting. It is much harder to lift in the running shoes with high squishy heels.. Given all that, I think you'll be fine to start in your current shoes and you can try…
