How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
Pseudo-paleo. No dairy and no wheat or grains. Forced to eat within the confines of campus- in the dining halls, so try to stick to the greens, fruits, and protein. However, can't be too sure what they cook with.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
Utilize my own programming as well as Guido Trinidad's at Peak360. Trying to keep up with the big dogs, Noah Ohlsen and Guido Trinidad.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
Football- defensive back and wide-receiver Baseball- 1B and outfielder Played both all through high-school.
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 had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
Introduced to Peak360 by a really good friend. Instantly fell in love, and have been at it ever since. Level-1 certified, and getting the CrossFit Kids Certification in April. Love bettering myself physically and mentally through CrossFit, as well as improving the lives of others.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
With an elbow injury that pretty much sidelined me for about 8 or 9 months, I was forced to do mostly cardio involving no upper-body. I managed to maintain my strength, and although my injury lingers, I've managed to register for the Open and plan on going all out. Unless my arm falls off, expect me to push myself to full capacity.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Less than 6 months
Just about a year and a half.
