I hear a lot of you say “I didn’t do the real workout cause I modified it” or “I can’t even do a real pull up” and my favorite “well I can’t do it like you”. I thought it would be fun to show where your trainers and other members started and where they are now. Let’s start it off with Marcus.
First WOD: Fight Gone Bad, made it through two rounds. 130 reps. Now: All 3 rounds and over 330 reps.
First time with Fran: Did 50lb thrusters and jumping pull ups. Time: 14 mins. Now: Rx’d at 4:39.
Pull Ups: It took 8 months for him to learn the kipping pull up. Now: he floats like a butterfly.
Deadlift: 185lbs twice. Now: 405lbs
Clean and Jerk: 135lbs. Now: 257lbs(117kg)
Snatch: The only snatch he heard of didn’t involve a barbell. Once he learned he could do sets of 3 at 65lbs. Now: 191lbs(87kg)
