I started getting into Crossfit in May 2012. I have been training with weights since I was 13. I have been into bodybuilding for 10 years and competitive stair racing for 4 years. I am training now just to build Olympic Lifts and improve overall mobility, movement and gymnastics. I am working to become a more rounded athlete, that looks at long term overall health rather then competing at some "open competition" or making the games. My main goal is to train well into older age My secondary goal is to make the games by the time I am 40. However I am in no rush to compete and I look for long term progress instead of trying to place high in a competition and risking injuries and psychological burnout.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
I eat every two hours - paying strict attention to protein/carb/fat ratios - I dont weigh anything but make sure to include 20-25 grams of protein per meal
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I train for movement, power, strength and flexibility. my main focus is on olympic lifts and gymnastic movements that build suppleness and whole body strength
My Athletic Background
I regularly play recreational sports
10 years of bodybuilding and 4 years of competitive stair climbing
My Experience With CrossFit
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I am always learning and growing - I am learning proper training methods that last my whole life, rather then just being a competitive athlete that gets burned out in 4 years. I will be around for a long time, competing in masters events well into my 60's and 70's
My Work/Rest Schedule
I strictly schedule my rest days
This always varies. Due to work schedules Saturdays are my days off. But I pay close attention to everything and make sure to rest when needed
