Was visiting over at Ryan’s site and saw another entry where he was discussing some of his lifts and personal records(PR’s). Over the past couple years fitness has become a major part of my life. I am 44 years old and feel like I am in the best shape of my life. Getting older scares the hell out of me and I guess I approach my health like I approach preparedness – I try to prepare to head off the effects of potential disasters.
From a fitness perspective I do Crossfit. You may have heard of it but if you haven’t check out this video below:
Crossfit is tough and challenging. I love it. I consider workout routines like Crossfit to be a perfect fit for those into preparedness as it prepares your body for a diverse number of conditions. I deadlift, clean, jerk (no comments please), snatch (yea…that is what it is called), bench press, overhead press, overhead squat (unbelievably difficult….try it), and more.
From a diet perspective the last 5 weeks my eating has sucked. But, overall I tend to eat very clean. I consume clean meats, vegetables, fruits…..and that’s it.
I would like to lose about 15 pounds – or gain 10-15 pounds of muscle.
Goals? Increase all my lifts – more details later.
Are you concerned with your health and fitness levels? What are you doing to maintain or improve yourself?
