Athlete: Jesse Ward
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
My wife is a saint and she measures out 15 blocks paleo/zone for me each day. I add to that with a breakfast of meat and heavy cream tea. At night I eat another protein meal with 15 blocks of fat.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I record my workouts
I do the main site WOD Monday and Tuesday each week and do a modified Dynamic Effort Squat day on Thursday and a modified Dynamic Effort Bench day on Friday, if I travel on the weekend I will train with the crew teaching otherwise I'll take the rest.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I played soccer in my youth and moved onto and placekicking in high school and college. I also rowed for 1 year in college.
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
We started doing the workouts, got certified in '08 competed in the games that same year and never looked back. This has revitalized my life, and my families' future!
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
Sometimes I rest 3 days a week, sometimes only 1. I don't have time to do a double day, although the second workout would be recovery work, not another WOD :)
