How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I am big on nutrition and eating right. I eat a combo diet of paleo and zone. My cheats to stay sane are sweet potato chips and very dark chocolate. Then, occasionally I will eat some ice cream when my weight dips a little from extra volume training. Supplements I take come from Competitive Edge Performance.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
I train at the fantastic Crossfit Brevard with programming from Rudy/Outlaw. The past few years my programming came from CrossFit Wilmington. Thanks to all who have helped me over the years.
