Crossfitting since: September 2008.
My favorite WOD: Cindy (I love Fran but she keeps kicking my ass!)
My RX-time: 25 rounds.
Why this WOD is my favorite: It hits a lot of different muscle groups and it’s possible to keep up the intensity for a long period of time.
Any obstacles?: I keep destroying my hands on the pull-ups due to bad technique.
Future goals: To keep making PRs and RX’ing the WOD’s.
My favorite meal/diet: I started following the Zone Diet a little over 1 year ago and have no intention of stopping again. Other than that I try not to eat white flour, too starchy foods and only eat a little sugar after workouts. I try to eat food with a low GI value as often as possible. I guess I eat a mixture of Zone/Paleo.
A typical example of a dinner would be as shown on the picture (chicken, apple, broccoli, blueberries, almonds and cashews). I ate this meal when I was working late at the office. Since we don’t have a kitchen to prepare food in at my work all the food was bought in the local grocery store and eaten cold. When eating at home my dinner would normally contain more vegetables and less fruit.
Why this meal/diet is my favorite: I found the Zone to be the best diet for me. By eating after The Zone diet I have balanced energy for performing optimal both physically and mentally throughout the day. It optimises the body’s ability to burn fat for energy which I also think is quite useful.
Any obstacles?: The first weeks in the Zone were quite hard. It took some time to find out in which way I had to adjust the diet for my body.
Future goals: Concerning dieting and meals my goal is to keep learning more about nutrition and optimizing my diet for my body. Also being able to help other people wanting help with their diet.
Nicholas will be attending the FIT AS FU*K CrossFit Challenge 25. SEPT 2010 in Denmark.
