How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
Meat and Vegetables all day everyday! Nuts, avacados, extra meat for snacks. No grain, no sugar, no fake protein. All natural, the only thing I eat that's not paleo is milk and potatoes.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
Doug Chapman does all my programming Waxman and Ashley at Waxman's gym help me with all my Olympic Lifts. I try to keep my training as "random" as possible to keep me on my toes and feel like I can "throw down" any place any time. Working out sometimes in the morning, afternoon or late at night, hungry, full of food, tired or full of energy and hype. This way there's no "ideal time" for training, and whether I first wake up or just get done coaching, at the drop of a hat it's GAME TIME!
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I regularly play recreational sports
