    Post your fitness milestones & personally significant PRs here!

    Primal Fuel
    Example:
    Today I deadlifted, with good form, 225lb (102kg) x5. That's two "big wheels" per side, for the non-lifters.
    Oct 1 I started the dead at 135 lb, first time in my life doing it.

    Immediately after that I nailed Marks PB fitness pushups level 6: uneven pushups (hand on basketball) 15 per side. One year ago I could not do ten standard pushups.

    Brag on!

    I was actually able to hit 135* on a pistol squat on my right leg. My ankle hated me for a week afterward, and my left ankle still refuses to let me go past 120*, but I did it.

    I am close to having all of my lifts at bodyweight or above *stupid military press*
    My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

    Last night, I set a new best in the squat at 300 (at age 48)
    I tied my best in the military press (125) - a lift I've started doing recently.

    My deadlift is sucking right now after doing 355 a year ago, but I seem stuck at 325 right now.

    If I could military press my bodyweight, I'd be amazed lol.

    My milestone was squatting my bodyweight again (last night!) after shattering my knee cap 15 months ago. Didn't know if I'd be able to squat again.

    We have our 1 rep max week coming up next week. It will be the first time I have gone after all my 1 rep maxes since I started back to doing crossfit. I've kinda picked up one here and one there as we go through the lifts but this will be the first time to REALLY get a good handle on where I'm at over all. Then there will be some goal making!
