Athlete: Logan Jenkins
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat whatever is convenient
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
With the amount of volume that I am currently training, food is food to me. However, I am absolutely in love with grilled chicken, greens, and brown rice so this makes it easy to eat. I would encourage anyone that is just starting to live by 2 legs or less for a fitter and healthier lifestyle. Then after 6-12 months of hard training you will need to make adjustments to fit your style of training and lifestyle. All in all, listen to your body!
How I Train
I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I record my workouts
I am a die-hard TOW follower (the outlaw way) and would not look back. I currently follow: catalyst athletics for the extra oly work, Julie Foucher's book about her 1 year training for an overall volume work in both strength and conditioning, Jim Windler's 5/3/1 for absolute strength, Smolov/Hatch for extra squat work and leg development, and finally Outlaw to remind myself that I cannot snatch the world just yet.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I crossfit and oly lift. Life is perfect.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I typically rest fewer than 4 days per month
I try to get in the garage and do something every day. I feel better when I move. However, this works for me and may not be okay for everyone! Just listen to your body and you will be okay.
