Uh oh, Bobby, you lost 2 pounds since the last weigh in 5 weeks ago. What happened?
Bobby: It was a fluke. I was sick that week and woke up vomiting several times the night before. I would estimate I lost about 15 pounds before the weigh in. It will make my win more dramatic.
Sounds like morning sickness. Did you, in fact, get pregnant yourself?
Bobby: I can neither confirm nor deny at this time.
Although Bobby sucks at putting on body weight, he has been putting up some very impressive weight at CrossFit 515 lately: 500# Deadlift, 415# Backsquat, 300# Front Squat, 275# Bench Press, 255# Clean & Jerk, 185# Snatch. Something (-------->) is obviously working. So Bobby, how nervous are you about testing positive during this year's Games season?
Bobby: The only thing I'm worried about testing positive for is too much awesomeness.
Pretty cocky for someone that lost to a pregnant chick in a workout just last week.
Enough about Bobby. How is this extra 20 pounds affecting my workouts? Body weight movements, especially pull ups, have gotten a lot harder lately, and my workouts are just a lot slower all around. The longer, light weight, grunt through it type workouts were my strength pre-pregnancy, so it's a little frustrating that those are the workouts I struggle with the most now. But, 25 weeks in and I'm still feeling great and doing most everything rx'd. Hopefully that will continue for at least 6 more weeks through the Open.
