Hi Brian:

I am new too. I am struggling with 5 pull-ups, and 12 push ups. When I started about a 1 1/2 months ago, I was at 3 and 8. I think the WOD's are great, and I feel great. I have lost about 8 pounds with a minor change in my diet.

My recommendation is just stick with it, go easy to begin with. I think in a months time you will really be amazed.

Hey, I'm new too. I've been training for a long time with martial arts, calisthenic, the Total Gym, and medicine ball and hit a plateu with my workouts. I didn't even break a sweat with my workouts. I just kept added reps and doing other stuff, but I was so bored with everything. But crossfit help me break that plateu. How? Motivatioin and Creativity are probably the largest strength of crossfit.
Good Luck on your training! And don't think too much, just train.
