More snatch

I hit 125lbs x 3 earlier in the week.

So obviously I have to go for 135lbs x 3, or a new PR or something.

I hit 125lbs x3 again, not clean, but did. Then I went for 135lbs x 3. Lost is forward on the first rep. Then two good reps, then I came short/weak on the pull on rep four.
so, 135lbs x 2. New PR.

I tried to hit 145lbs, but my ass wasn't havin it. Didn't try the third pull at all.

So in review; Good week. Losing weight/fat, hitting PRs almost every day. IF ain't so bad.

Hello,
I'm tryin' to lose more weight. I am 5'10 and 1/2 and currently 238 lbs. I have already lost 60 lbs but am at a plateau. My idea weight I believe is about 190 lbs because I am already a 36" waist. I do use 25 lbs free weights 3 x a day. What else should I be doing? I ride my bike an hour each day too. Should I eat 6 small meals a day? Also do I have to give up sweet tea? Put me in code I'm ready to play!

first;

that's an amazing success story right there... 60lbs is nothing to sneeze at.

Second, if you are accurate in what you are describing, you workout out 28 times a week... this can't be right, right? If it is, that's the first problem.

Exercise doesn't have to be long to be effective. It needs to be intense; that word is relative.

some great resources...

that's a free PDF from Crossfit explaining why we believe variety and intensity gives you strength, power and endurance, as well as metabolic health.

Thanks, and thanks for the information. I don't believe I "work out" rather exercise, but I have done most of that in the summer. I lose most of my weight over the summer- about 20 lbs or so. But then by fall seem to taper off. Does this have to do with loseing water and salt through sweating more in the warmer weather? I will check out the link
Thanks.
