Superhuman 40 Transformation: Alan Mcgee
The first thing I have to say is thank you. This started out as a challenge and has now evolved into a lifestyle. My wife tells me not only am I drinking the Kool-Aid, but now I’m mixing it as well, and she’s right. This has been such a huge change in the way I feel.
The first major blessing is that I no longer have any abdominal pain since the start of the 40 day challenge. Ever since my surgery, I have dealt with lower abdominal pain almost daily. Since about day 4 of the challenge, I have been 100% pain free, well except for the fun pain the day after a hard WOD. All my old friends keep asking what’s my secret. I look younger now than I did 10 years ago (and yes I love that). It boils down to eating real food and CrossFit.
Here are the goals I set for myself at the onset of the 40 day challenge:
“I will lose 25 pounds by day 40. I will deadlift 350 lbs. I will do 10 unbroken kipping pull-ups. I will use 100 lbs for overhead squats.”
Now let’s see how I did.
Lost a total of 10.2% of my body fat which equates to 24.95 lbs.
My total weight loss was 16.1 lbs.
Which means I added 8.75 lbs. of muscle “BOOYA!”
105 lb Overhead Squat
175 lb Push Press
315 lbs X 3 reps Deadlift (I know I can do over 350 right now!)
295 lb Back Squat
5 Kipping Pull-ups unbroken
I have already started my second 40 day Superhuman Challenge. Bring on the Kool-Aid!
