Name: LJ House
Occupation: Civil Construction Field Engineer
Length Of Time CrossFitting: 5 Months
Favorite Lift and Why? Bench Press. I like the way it makes my chest and arms feel after lifting.
Favorite WOD and Why? 10 Min Amrap of: 10 Strict Pullups, 15 DB push press, 20 burpees. It’s a good shoulder workout. I enjoy being able to work on my banded / strict pullups in a class atmosphere.
Goals for the Next Year? To continue to push hard every day I’m in the gym and not hold back. I would like to be able to back squat 300lbs 1 rep max. When I 1st started CFB, I was 220lbs and now I’m190lbs, so by next year I would like to be a strong but lean weight of 165lbs for a total lost of 55lbs.
How has CrossFit Impacted your Life? CrossFit has impacted my life in a fantastic way. I’m able to have self-control over food intake and quantities. CrossFit gives me the push I need, and I love being in the environment. The joy of being in the CFB gym after work is a feeling that you can’t find at just any gym. I enjoy being able to see small progression over time. I look forward to 8pm to see tomorrow’s WOD. Before I felt like I had to work out but now I want to.
