Athlete: Matthew Walrath
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
I weigh and measure once in a while to recalibrate my eye for what "1/4 pound of beef" or "1/2lb of sweet potato" looks like. From there I control and balance, but don't measure, the amount I eat.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
Paradiso CrossFit Outlaws
My Athletic Background
I played college sports
Inside Lacrosse MCLA Player of the Year 2012 3x All American and 2x Scholar Athlete
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 had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
CrossFit took my fitness to another level, and then I started to see its flaws. So, I did what any problem solver would do and decided to become a coach to fix its flaws.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I do outlaw programming and walk/bike everywhere plus prioritize surf when the swell is around.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
On and off, but I started in 2009 using CrossFit as preseason strength & conditioning for lacrosse, eventually creating my own programming after my L1 cert in 2010.
