I am NOT a big supplement person. In fact, I believe most people shouldn't take any supplements until they have changed their diets and have begun to workout consistently (consistently means 3 months ore more). It is only after those changes are made, and people are still having trouble getting good daily nutrition, that I’d recommend supplements.

As someone who wears many, many, hats, it is not always easy to keep fit when having to juggle everything. Diet is one thing that I have always struggled with. I'd also say that it is probably the main area that keeps most people from reaching their fitness goals.

I am a prime example of someone who gave it their all in the gym and didn't see true results until I changed the way I ate. The problem is that most diets are not sustainable. In my opinion, most diets are so restrictive as to what you can and cannot eat, that they actually make you worse off than if you had never started them.

Why?

Simply, you starve yourself when following them, then when you can't hang in there any longer, you quit and binge eat to have everything you couldn't eat before.

I am so guilty of this.

I've tried strict Paleo and have been hardcore about it. I've done the detox, cleared out the cupboards. Followed it to the letter and have seen great results, but not the ultimate results I wanted. I always felt a little sluggish and tired in the gym. This was especially true when I upped my training for competitions.  The solution given for being tired was always "eat more fat". Avocados were my go to source, and while this seemed to work a bit, I never felt super energized. 

Then to feel full I would eat way more than I should have. Because of this I never got rid of those trouble spots on my stomach and sides.

I believe in telling things like they are. I am not a fluffy rainbows type of guy that tells you what you want to hear, instead I believe in telling you what you need to hear. 

Why?

Another successful FTF Affiliate Challenge is in the bag and this year didn’t disappoint. The WOD’s this year were a unique change compared to previous years. Not a pull-up in sight the first day, and no shuttle runs, but plenty of deadlifts, shoulders to overheads, plus a couple crazy twists.

The workouts were a break from the norm and forced athletes to use their heads. On workout two, there was a 1K Meter row buy in before the real WOD began. After your row, you began an AMRAP of 5 deadlifts, three pistols each leg, then twenty double-unders. The time for the workout was set at 10 min, so it was short, but you had to have a game plan.

Athletes had to use their heads here, because if they went to strong on the row, they’d be gassed for the AMRAP. If they went to slow, there was no way they’d get in enough rounds to get a great score.

This last year I saw Casey compete at the FTF Affiliate Challenge and knew right away she would be an athlete to watch. I caught up with her several months back while doing an article about CrossFit Nipomo (where she happened to be training), and somehow convinced her to do a future athlete profile for bilderz.com

This past weekend I got my chance.
