Hi everyone, I'm Dan. I found this site a couple of months ago and I think it's great. I'm an 18 year old student who is going to university next year to study theoretical physics, but I also have a great interest in health and fitness!!
BF %: About 10-11%
I do as much sport as I can, I played national league basketball until a year ago and have been competing in triathlon for a year or so, I also like to strength train and do lots of calisthenics, and I have recently been experimenting with Crossfit.
My goals for the challenge are to keep daily carbs under 150g, keep protein intake daily over 200g, while sticking to the Primal Blueprint nutrition guidelines, and keeping calories at about 3000 daily.
I want to carry on with my exercise regime with a mixture of swimming,biking, running, weights, calisthenics and crossfit.
I'd ideally like to be a bit more 'ripped' but performance comes first, if I keep hitting PRs, I'll be pleased.
My PRs are:
Max pull ups: 10 (12)
Max ring dips: 6 (10)
2min press ups: 43 (60)
2min sit ups: 39 (60)
Max deadlift: 160kg/352lbs (170kg)
Max squat: 137.5kg/303lbs (150kg)
Max overhead press: 65kg/143lbs (70kg)
Max bench press: 102.5kg/226lbs (110kg)
400m run 1:13 (1:10)
1 mile run: 6:48 (6:00)
5k run: 23:52 (22:59)
10k run: 53:00 (50:00)
Half marathon 2:09 (2:00)
10 Mile bike 28:43 (28:00)
Fran 18:18 (15:00)
Grace 10:47 (8:00)
Goals in (brackets)
In a week I'll be going wild camping to the lake district, can't wait for that! So I won't be logging obviously, and my diet might take a bit of a hit, ie, not as many fresh veggies as i'd like. On the plus side, hiking through the mountains and sleeping under the stars for a week will feel pretty primal, and it will make a good oppurtunity to get some great footage for today's challenge
