Yesterday we did CrossFit totals, and I was nervous going into it since I havent deadlifted heavy since my back injury. I was able to hit 250 with no problems! I tried for 270 but started to feel a slight pull so I figured I would rather be safe than sorry, and just kept it at 250. I will have 300 before the summer ends! I did get a nice 25# pr on my back squat! Did my first 200# squat!
Crossfit Totals score: 555
I was in Washington D.C. for work and stopped by District Crossfit for a few sessions when I could run out of my conference. They were extremelly nice and supportive, but also kicked my butt! I must say that the athletes up there are in very good shape! Time to get back into it and start hitting it hard! It's almost summer and I dont have my beach abs yet! :-)

Hello All! I know its been a long time since I have posted! I hadn't really felt like posting since I have been only able to do between 50-75% of my max weight due to my back injury, but I am feeling a lot better and thought I would start my first post with the training I did over the weekend! I went to CrossFit Austin to attend the gymnastics seminar hosted by Carl Paoli. We learned how to do proper hand stand pushups, pistols and muscle ups! I am a long way away from being able to do a muscle up, but now I know the steps that it takes to make it happen, and the way he put it all together makes it seem very do-able in the future! If anyone has the opportunity to take this class I would suggest it! Hopefully they will post our class picutre soon so I can post it here! http://nakaathletics.com/naka-pros
