How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat whatever is convenient
I attempt to eat quality foods as much as possible. Paleo was great for me on paper but when I tried it i simply couldnt get the caloric intake necessary to obtain my goals on a regular basis. On a typical day my caloric intake is between 8,000 and 10,000 calories. In order to get to that same intake level on paleo required me to eat almost constantly. Becuase I have school as well as basketball practice and crossfit, i wasn't able to do so.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I workout at Crossfit Redding 4-5days a week with Justin Cascarina as my trainer each day.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I have played basketball since age 8 and I am currently a Junior College basketball player at Shasta College, my background covers a variety of sports such as soccer, baseball, and track and field.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I have had an ongoing struggle with weight gain, meaning i cant gain weight! Crossfit for me did what none of the other programs i tried could. I am motivated to go by the coaches and the fact that i just love the sport, and in my first year i gained almost 30 lbs going from 142 to 170 lbs.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
My workouts at the gym involve some sort of heavy lifting, followed by a met con. Afterwards I go home and do more body building focused lifting in an attempt to gain weight.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I have been doing crossfit for four years with intermitant breaks during basketball seasons.
