Back on the grind
Just wanted to start my log on here for motivational and informative purposes. Basically I went from a solid 285 pound high school wrestler with 13% bodyfat to a 320 pound college kid with 20% bodyfat that didn't hit the gym at all. Around march I started dieting and slowly began to exercise again. Now it's June and I'm down 15 pounds. I am currently doing a 5x5 routine with heavy weights mixing in some high intensity cardio along with my Jiu jitsu classes. My goal is to build my strength back up and eventually get my weight down and step in the cage for some mma. Here is Sunday and Monday on the log:
Pre workout: Musclepharm assault. (Crazy good stuff)
Post workout: Musclepharm creatine and two scoops of muscle tech protein.
Sunday: chest and biceps
regular bench 5x5 225lbs (struggled on last set)
Incline DB bench 5x5 with 75lbs
Decline bench 5x5 205lbs
Dumbbell flys 5x5 50
Seated hammer curls 5x5 55lbs
Straight bar curls 5x5 95lbs
Preacher curls 5x5 75lbs
Monday: Back and Triceps
Front pull downs 5x5 140lbs
Bent over row 5x5 155lbs
Bench dumbbell pull-ups? 5x5 85lbs
Seated rows 5x5 120 lbs
Tricep push downs 5x5 80 lbs
Weight assisted dips 5x5 60lbs assist
Rope push downs 5x5 85lbs

Bout to go lift with the high schoolers I help coach Olympic lift day and Jiu jitsu right after.... May need a pick me up after the lift
06-04-2013, 07:57 PM
Well I did my Olympic lifts 2 different sets
Power clean 3x5 185lbs
Dead lift 3x5 305lbs
Then my former conditioning coach and good friend threw together a cross fit 3 rounds of 8 medicine ball squat throws with a 45 lb ball followed by 4 tractor tire flips followed by a 40 yard dash... My tank was empty after this I was dead time to get some protein in me and rest.

Anyone reading this ...would doing cross fits hurt my muscle/strength gains? And how often should I do it to burn fat?

You find an extremely small handful of people on this forum that would advocate crossfit. Majority will tell you to not do it.
Don't do crossfit
Sprints, farmer walks, sled pulls, prowlers ect instead

Also people at work keep telling me:

"I can't flip your man tits anymore"
"Arms are looking pretty good"
I love when I see these mass gains like this 2.5 more weeks of hard heavy lifting and beach time!
