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?

2-4 years

I have been doing crossfit for four years with intermitant breaks during basketball seasons.
