Athlete: Evan Haveman
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
Some months my diet is atrocious. Others it's pristine. I vacillate like crazy. For the month leading up to the open I'll be eating paleo-esque (no alcohol, sugars, dairy, or grains) but today, the day before I start that challenge, I am eating a burger with fries & mayo and washing it down with several pints of beer.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
I workout 2-3 days a week at Crossfit Vancouver and once a week with my friends who run Precision Athletics. I follow CFV's programming when I'm there and at Precision we usually do some sort of olympic lifting followed by a met-con.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
Rugby, volleyball, and basketball up until about grade 10. just Volleyball in grades 11 & 12 (mostly because I cut class and went to the beach to play there).
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I usually get in 4 crossfit workouts a week. Sometimes 3 if one of those was particularly brutal.
