I am absolutely LOVING these Transformation Tuesdays. I guess you don’t realize how much people change when you see them often until you see their before pictures! Keep them coming!

 

Today our transformation(s) are brothers Mason and West, both extremely hard workers in the gym, and it definitely shows! WOW!

“Prior to starting crossfit, the only exercise I got was basically from the football season. I would eat pretty much anything because I thought since I was doing football I burned off enough to make up for it. I was severely wrong, and my weight showed for it. I started going to crossfit after seeing mason slimming down pretty fast and I was impressed so I decided I would start as well. Since December I have started eating really healthy and really watching everything that I eat. In the time that I have been going to crossfit I have went from  250 pounds to 180 pounds, a total of 70 pounds lost. Huge S/O to everyone at Crossfit who has helped to push me all the way through!”

–WEST MAYER

“Back in November I was 250 pounds. I’ve been working with CrossFit Lodi for about 8 months and have gotten down to 178 pounds. I’d like to thank all of the trainers and people that got me to this point and motivated me to keep going.”

–MASON MAYER

Mason has cut out all fast food, candy and “anything that wasn’t going to benefit him” since starting CrossFit. Now he has added in occasional cheat meals and is more lenient on what he eats.

 

That is something I try to tell clients constantly that are battling weight loss and wanting better results. In the beginning you HAVE to be strict, which means NO cheating. Yes, it sucks. Yes, it’s hard. But you CAN do it if you put your mind to it. It really comes down to this: HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?

 

Skill Warm-up:

8 Minute EMOM:

Even: 5/3 Muscle Ups

Odd: Max set Strict Handstand Push-ups

 

WOD: (courtesy of CrossFt Invictus)

Every minute, on the minute, for 30 minutes:
Minute 1 – 15 Heavy Russian Kettlebell Swings (use the heaviest bell you can find, or switch to Double Kettlebell Swings if you don’t have adequately heavy bells)
Minute 2 – 10 Walking Lunges with Kettlebells or Dumbbells (you choose the load)
Minute 3 – 12 Burpee Box Jump-Overs (24″/20″)

*** Notes: this workout does not have an “Rx”…you choose the weight of your KB swing and lunges. Post weights used to score. Challenge yourself! Choose a weight that is heavy but that you can complete the entire EMOM. Try to scale weight, not reps.

 

**THIS IS ALSO THE CROSSFIT MELT WORKOUT! :)
