Athlete: Adam Jamieson
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I heart exercise science (though I like to think our ancestors were like the Spartans in 300 - but Anthropology is a buzz kill). I LOVE CHOCOLATE MILK (post workout). Living Well Pressure Cooker makes life better. Puck Faleo (take anthropology), become less emotional towards food (it's really just economics) and simply question everything.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
AM crew with Jay Bernardo (stronger than you and funnier too...and has breathtaking pec control) and the super, world famous Sage Mertz (Coach B's daughter - the cool one) and sometimes with the future world champion at everything, Mike Mertz (currently 2 years old and world champion at cuteness, most ballin' ground-to-overheads and self-motivation). We do Invictus (fml) and I cry a lot.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
Nothing exciting. I played little league baseball until I was 14. I "played" high school football for 2 years and rowed for the last 2 years (hurray). Military shenanigans followed high school (was deep sea for 7ish years yo).
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 story is like game of thrones of crossfit gyms of Hawaii (seriously - the character that best describes me is Dondarrion - that's the one that's just 'ok' and won't die/go away). OG
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I'm an A,B,C kind of guy (makes zero sense if you don't know the 'fun' that is Invictus) and a real sucker for metcons. Thursdays and Sundays I try not to break parallel to emphasize my love of doing nothing on days where exercise is not observed.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Inspired by thinking I could beat comment #63 on crossfit.com's 12/27/08 (thanks OPT). Before attempting I felt like comment #35 ("something for me to look forward to tomorrow :)" and then it quickly escalated to comment #1 ("OH NO, I'm going to die"). Oddly, the "OH NO" has turned into "F YEAH!". Yup, I embody this stuff.
