A firefighter who works out so that he can eat desserts without gaining weight. I also work out so that I am ready for anything I may face on an emergency scene. I do not believe in random programing. When life is handed to you at random, you should seize the opportunity to control any aspect you can. I focus on strength, mobility and endurance. My training has little to no Crossfit specific training like DU, HSPU, T2B, high rep snatches, ect because it has no purpose to the demands of my job or life. I am not an amateur recreational competitive Crossfitter trying to fill a void in my personal life, I do not have time for gimmicky exercises.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I workout so I can eat desserts. All other food is natural and unprocessed.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
I train for fun and to maintain a high physical aptitude for my job as a firefighter. I do not focus or train specifically on movements that are useless on an emergency scene and real life (Ie. HSPU, handstand walking, t2b, DU, ect.) If I happen to get better at them, it isn't because I am trying to. My goal is to be a healthy, strong, injury and embalance free firefighter, not an amateur competitive exerciser.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I train other people
My Work/Rest Schedule
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I try and have some form of exercise every day, I don't workout when my body or mind decides it doesn't want to. Training is part of a broader spectrum that is life, training is not life.
