Bio

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat strict Paleo

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

I am a huge fan of the Paleo philosophy on overall health, wellness, and longevity. However, recently I wanted to start experimenting with upping my carb intake, incorporating white potatoes, oats, and rice. Sweet potatoes are still my go-to carb source. I keep it clean for the most part. I tend to have a couple cheat meals (and beer) on the the weekends.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I regularly play recreational sports

Football, Hockey, and Lacrosse in High School.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I followed the CrossFit.com workouts on my own religiously for a summer. A year later (with bouts of .com programming) I joined CrossFit Explode September 2012 and haven't looked back since.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Working 12.5hr shifts 3 days a week I am forced to work out at home often. I recently acquired a barbell and bumper plates that I have been using in my apartment living room. As soon as the weather warms up, the parking lot will be my gym on work days, CrossFit Explode on days off.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

CrossFit Explode since Sept. 2012.
