How did you discover crossfit / olympic lifting?
I discovered crossfit while watching videos online a few years back, but I didn't actually try it until a great friend of mine convinced me. I went to his Crossfit gym, did a workout, and I've been hooked on it since.
I like to get my mind right before I train so often when I get to a gym , I'll spend about 15-20 minutes getting my mind right as I warm up, and essentially visualizing everything I have to get done.
Contrast showers have been my go to lately for recovery, about 5 minutes hot, 5 minutes cold, mix it up, and go by feel. I usually finish off with the cold cycle.
Favorite conditioning movement or lift:
Deadlifts are definitely my favorite lift. The carry over to other Olympic lifts and such is tremendous.
Favorite Arrowhead Tape:
The thin flex
How do you use Our Tape in Crossfit/Lifting/Training?
Will use to support wrists
What are your competitive goals in 2017?
I plan on getting better each and every comp that I enter this year and so on. I've been doing Crossfit for less than a year, but in the short period of time that I have been doing it, I have learned a great deal. So each competition I go into, I want to be better, and better.
Favorite music for training and competing:
It depends, some days I'm listening to 50 cent, and some days I'm training to Mozart
What is important to you outside of training and competing?
God, and family
