Strength: Wendler-Deadlift/Strict press 5-5-5 /65-75-85% WOD: 3 rounds for time 400 m run 10 HSPU 10 Deadlifts 225/155 Great Job Matt Morrison you are a perfect example of the CrossFit community! Testomonial: I started Crossfit on 10/3/11 with the intent on simply losing some weight for an upcoming vacation so I didn't have to have to look through another photo album full of fat pool pics. I knew very little about CF and hadn't seen the games on TV either. I basically knew it was varied workouts in a class setting and liked the concept as I wasn't big on traditional globo gym workouts. The first few weeks were pretty brutal but I scaled the workouts and tried to make sure that I got a grasp of the lifting forms. I was doing jumping pull-ups and couldn't dream of doing a hand-stand push up. After those first few evil weeks I was amazed at how my body started to respond. Jumping pull-ups slowly turned into kips and box push ups eventually turned in to big boy HSPU's. Since that time, I have lost around 30 pounds and have completely turned around my body structure. My old jeans look like MC Hammer pants as I have dropped 4 pant sizes. The best part is I finally feel like I have found a fitness solution that I can stick with. The combination of weight training and cardio work is the best combination for me and with some modifications to my pathetic diet the results have been great. I would recommend CF to just about anyone. Jared and Andrea do a fantastic job and you don't have to RX every workout to get great results. Just focus on form first, and the weight will eventually come. Matt Morrison 6am WOD'er

    Thanks a bunch y’all. Not proud of my old pics at all but thought the pics were a good testament to Jared and Crossfit 417. Hopefully these will help others push themselves to reach their own fitness goals.
