Athlete: Thomas Abia II
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I cook my own foods each week that are qualitatively designed (fats / carbs / fiber / protein / salt) to support my training and frequent on-the-go schedule. No supplements of any kind are taken. All foods consumed are logged for macros on myfitnesspal and a supplemental Excel spreadsheet. Parameters such as daily caloric intake distribution and calories vs. workout are analyzed to evaluate RX macros on a weekly basis. Bodyweight is recorded daily in the morning as the response variable to caloric intake.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
Work out 5 days weekly. 1 day for the WOD may be substituted with long-distance running.
My Athletic Background
I played college sports
Former NCAA Division 1 wrestler. Also a former NCWA wrestler.
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 typically rest 4 or more days per month
Mondays / Tuesdays / Wednesdays / Fridays / Saturdays. All days are single-days with exception of Wednesdays. Wednesdays are Crossfit WODs in the morning, followed by weightlifting 1:1 training in the evening
