Cut physical activity? You mean work less hours but increase the weight?

No no no, I cheat 3 meals per week. Saturday afternoon after work out, Saturday night or a weekday night and Sunday after noon or night depending upon when my team is playing football.

@Moses: I agree, I just commented the reasons why dropping crossfit, atleast for me, would not be so productive. Please see my comments on 'Marten's' reply and feel free to take a shot at it.

GOAL: Correct me if you see any problem with this or feel free to modify it. Daily Routine in order: 1) Crossfit - for above mentioned reasons 2) Run (0.5 - 2 miles in treadmill - Speed - 6-7 <or Interval Training?>) - I want to hit the belly fat too 3) Work on strength - Deadlifts, Bench, Pull ups(I still can do only 3-5), <Feel free to suggest anything else here> 4) Diet - Yes I will make sure I burn enough before having it. Cheat meals - lets say 1-3 a week. You can tell me if it is going to work or am I getting too ambitious and will get fatigued. Appreciate your thoughts.

1) With my crazy work pressure and 12 hour job per day, I dont have to worry about my work out routine for the next day, I just need to gain enough motivation to show up - thats it. There were times I skipped gym for 3 weeks straight, but now even on my worst phase of a year at work, I would have had atleast 3 good workouts per week - it keeps me going. I agree this is a lame thing to say, but it worked for me. 2) With out crossfit, I would never push my self enough 3) I heard about d-lifts a year ago, how many work out routines you think I would know, who is going to correct my bad posture.

By OCT 2014 I noticed, I wasn't pushing myself enough and I gave too much time in between sets. So I joined crossfit and switched my diet to paleo. It worked good so far. I do understand that crossfit is a GPP program. Here's why I dont think I should stop crossfit, in order.

Hi Marten. I lost lots of weight in last 1 year. I was 195 lbs starting 2013. I started losing weight using proper diet and by the end of 2013 I was 156 lbs. However, I was doing just cardio and diet, so I didnt have much strength. Thats when I started taking personal trainer classes once to month to set up my weight lifting routine. It would be safe to assume that I never heard of dead lifts until the start of 2014 (I was 25 yrs old at that time, 26 now, 27 if you ask me next week). I worked on deadlifts, banded-pullups, push ups, high pull, free-weight shoulder press, squats, lunges.

comment My Current deadlift is 116% of my body weight. My goal is 200% of my body weight, how much time should I give?
No offense taken from Marten, but thanks! I understand your point of view. Crossfit is not a streamlined workout program, so if I have to build muscle mass, I have to work on my own in addition to crossfit. The reason I joined crossfit is 1) I need to improve my technique 2) I dont have to worry about high intensity cardio to keep the body fat to a lower percentage. Still thats an issue, more than strength training, my goal is to bring down my body fat percentage.

Also, I hit my deadlifts on my own after crossfit workout. Same for pull ups, bench, core exercises etc, I understand your point that crossfit does not streamline a muscle group, but with out crossfit it is so hard for me to get a reasonable cardio without weights.

I am male, 5'10", 27, east Indian by ethnicity. I am not that tall. I would have to agree that I might be on pre-good-technique-weight. But trainers seems to be okay with my deadlift technique. I am working on my cleans and snatch technique. But for deadlifts I think my technique is almost right if not right. I can do a max of 225 lbs instead of 215lbs if I really push myself and not fatigued from daily crossfit work out, not more than that. My grip strength is low, yes, I cannot do pull ups properly. I guess I have to work on that.
