About Land
After a 34 years of poor nutrition and bad exercise advise I began Crossfit which was good to me for a bit: through tracking macros/micros and 3 days/week CF I dropped from 227 pounds down to 167 and an estimated 15pbf (male). It also allowed me to put on a small amount of muscle, and I no longer spent every day in chronic pain due to weak glutes/hams/etc.

By the time I reached 167 pounds I switched from a cutting diet of 200/148/33 (protein/carb/fat) to bulking. My ego felt great at this point, however I was obviously lacking some very important muscle development.

Where CF was good for shedding fat, it has failed to train any noticeable strength gains / muscle mass. Despite running a bulking diet of 172p/243c/52f all I’ve accomplished in 9 months of exercising at CF is to jump up to 195 pounds and 20-25pbf.

This has led me to forgo exercising for training, and SS is my landing pad.
