Athlete: Jordan Finlayson
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat eggs, bacon and fruit every morning. I eat lean meats and veggies the remaining meals. I try to consume 3,000 calories every day.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I train 3 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off. I don't workout on Sundays becauses it's the Lords day. Over the last year I've done my own strength programming, my coach has programmed my strength wods. I have someone program endurance/gymnastic skills/wods for me a few times a week.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I train other people
Head trainer @ Crossfit Hickory. I found crossfit while reading a Men's Health Magazine. Did Helen as my first wod and never looked back. After 2 months I began training with the owner, my current coach, and decided to compete.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I believe that rest days are important. When I first began crossfit, i wouldn't take rest days and I found myself fatigued both physically and mentally. Rest days are equally as important as nutrition, they both allow your body time to grow, adapt and recover from the various intensity levels it is put through.
