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.

 

Pre-training ritual:

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. 

 

Recovery ritual:

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

Featured Athlete: Diane McKinney of CrossFit North Fulton

Posted by Jonathan McEuen on

When I turned 50 years old I had my first bone density test which showed osteoporosis.  My doctor told me to go do some weight bearing exercise. I was a power walker at the time. A friend of mine told me about Crossfit but it looked hard and scary. It took me over a year but in 2010 I finally went to the local Crossfit, Crossfit North Fulton, and never looked back!
