What’s your favorite thing about CF?
Great coaches and a great community that make working out enjoyable and motivating⁣

What’s something most people don’t know about you? I despise ketchup, literally can’t smell it without gagging⁣

What PRs or accomplishments are you most proud of? 225 hang clean, 325 back squat⁣

What’s on your CF bucket list? Muscle ups and overall mobility improvement⁣

What advice do you have for new (or experienced!) CrossFitters? Attend classes as frequently as you body will allow you, you’ll know when you truly need a rest day. Also pace yourself during the metcons and don’t burn yourself out right in the beginning.⁣

What are your favorite numbers and why? For time-capped metcons I prefer descending rep schemes, and for AMRAPs I prefer more movements with lower rep schemes for each as I enjoy cycling through multiple movements quickly.⁣

custom workout: AMRAP 10, 5 hang cleans, 5 front squats, 5 S2OH, 10 burpees over bar, 10 T2B. RX 95/65
