This will be my 7th year competing in the Master's division (the first Master's regional and 6 Opens). I've been fortunate to make it to the Games twice. I won in 2012 at age 58 and placed 9th last year in the 60+ age group. I'll be the first to admit that the thing that motivates me these days is the prospect of competing with the guys in my division. That's what makes all the work worthwhile!


How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Mostly paleo. Cheat a little with dairy and have a cheat day once in a while. I LOVE dark chocolate!!

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I record my workouts

As I said above, I've been power lifting regularly since 2013 using Westside Barbell's conjugate system, Wendler and other programs. I believe you can never be too strong and hope it pays off across the CF spectrum, from met-cons to power lifts.
