Athlete: Michael Worth
How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
100% Paleo, 80% of the time. Have to allow for the occasional Philly Cheesesteak or Chinese Food Takeout.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
Work out at Crossfit Main Line. I'm lucky to have a great community and great coaching, and my wife and I get great personal coaching from CFML. Been focusing on a lot of upper body gymnastics and ring work... still a work in progress. :)
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I grew up playing basketball and lacrosse. Fell in love with martial arts and mixed martial arts in college. Trained and became certified as an instructor in Jeet Kune Do Concepts/Filipino Martial Arts under Joe Freyman (Senior Instructor, Progressive Fighting Systems). During my early thirties, I fell off the fitness wagon, and last year, used Crossfit to kickstart my fitness. I've never felt healthier, or more athletic. Crossfit is a great method to grow and develop my fitness as I enter my 40's.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I strictly schedule my rest days
I fit my Crossfit in around a pretty normal work schedule. I'll attend WOD's 4x a week, with the occasional 5 day structure. Usually 2 days on/1 off.
