How I Eat
I'm on and off the Paleo diet. I'm Filipino so naturally we love rice and getting off the stuff is pretty difficult. I've gotten better in not eating but I can't resist moms cooking. So when it comes close to performance time or events, I'm on a strict Paleo diet as much as possible, but on the off season I have my rice and grains but more sparingly than before.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym
I usually stick to CrossFit but once in a while I head back to my old gym to get in some weight lifting. I try to add in my other fitness hobbies such as rock climbing and kick boxing but recently, I've been CrossFit 100%
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
Been the chubby kid my entire life. It was only until 2009 when I reached my heaviest weight of 299 when I decided to make a change. Played intramurals in college when I could but didn't get to play in high school.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
CrossFit is awesome and I love it. The End.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
Because of my work schedule it's hard to CrossFit every weekday, but if I can I will go to my box and WOD everyday. I work 3, 12 hour shifts a week then get 4 days off. I usually rest Saturdays and try to workout every day whether it be running, WODing, or at my old gym.
