5/3/1 is no joke. I did that when I was deployed and got incredible gains in strength over the year. It doesn't require spending hours in the gym either, which was great for me. I hate to be in the gym for long, considering I put some long hours in at work sometimes.

our crossfit coach is going to be one of the judges this year so I think a bunch of us are going to def try and go. I think it would be really cool to go see it live. are you planning on going?

and yes it does feel like a cult but I really enjoy the workouts and the people. the box I goto is still new but its growing every month which is great.

^^awesome! If you end up going we will def have to meet up

My goal is one day to atleast try out at one of the qualifiers, i think it would be cool to see how I stack up against others. however at this current time I am not even close but who knows what I will be like in a year or so

Crossfit

I love doing it, Ive shed 25lbs since I started last year. My waistline use to be 34 and at 180lbs, today I'm 31 and at 155lbs. I'm so addicted to it that I tore my Miniscus four months ago from over exertion. lol Be careful!

For anyone who is looking for a pre supplement I got a batch of the Progenex FORCE the other day and finally was able to try it out today and wow. This stuff is really good. It taste great (lemonade taste) and made feel completely different. I felt like I had a ton more energy and my muscle fatigue was barely even existent. I am going to try the whole 30 day supply and go from there, but as of now I am very impressed

I goto the gym regularly and recently just joined cross fit! Right off the bat i am already sore from the intense workouts and quite frankly i love it! Bought a 6month pass so going to keep this as a 2-3 days a week regular + 2-3 days at the gym for weight training a week.

You guys notice big differences in cross fit?

^^Awesome! I would be interested to see your outlook on your results after 6 months when you are doing both crossfit and weight training. You are going to be a beast!

So far none that I can see. I will say that I have never taken anything else to compare the progenex force to before but I will say this stuff rocks. I use it last night for the 3rd time and love it. I also use progenex Recovery and More Muscle. All three products are great IMO

I hope so! I was a regular at the gym but always doing the same weekly routine (major body part + another part) + 30 mins treadmill jogging 4-5 days out of the week. I am already broad guy right now, but want to get more ripped. I noticed i hit a plateau and i noticed i have a small stomach that for the life of me cannot get rid of. I've incorporated skipping, full ab workouts, etc.

When i got into crossfit first two days, i was already out of my element and my body was not used to it. I was out of breath , sweating like pig, very sore in places i've never even worked out on before. However, I Loved every single minute of it! I noticed lack of core strength, flexibility strength , endurance, stamina that normal gyms couldn't give me. Another big thing i noticed was alot of techniques i needed to improve which is huge because they will let you know right away when your doing your WOD's.
