Josh,
The vids of you are impressive and your peformance is something I desire. So I hope you'd answer a few of my questions...

Height? Weight? Bodyfat %?

Also, what nutritional guidelines do you follow? The Zone? Krispy Kreme doughnuts for dinner? And what does your exercise protocol follow? WOD only? WOD plus some ME work? Or perhaps WOD with another sport?

Thanks for any help.

Sincerely,
Kurt

5'9" 185lbs 5% body fat. I had one of those Dexa body fat scans done as part of a weightlifting study this summer. as it turns out the fattest part of my body is my head. this explains allot.

nutrition: my basic day:
5:30 am whole grain bowl of cereal with a scoop of protien powder on top. Multi-vitamin pack & some fish oil tablets.
9:30am protien bar
post workout: small bar or some milk
1pm protien shake & some walnuts & fish oil
4:30 protien shake
7:30 large dinner mainly lots of meat 10-15 blocks worth, some salad, some nuts
weekends a little less scheduled, less bars & shakes, more PB & J and more meat. ussually some ice cream on the weekend.
I'm pretty close to 40/30/30 overall but never in the zone. but I figured the anger i felt from only eating 5 blocks of meat was worse for my health than the benifits of the zone.

workouts are tougher to describe: currently I'm doing about half of the workout posted on mikesgym.com(just sticking to the sn & clean & jerk portions)followed by the WOD. I do this monday thru thursday & sat. If the wod is a rest day I do all of burgeners workout + agility and sprint work.
if you go to dragondoor.com i wrote an article on "how i trained for the tactical strength challange" this describes what my workout were like pre-crossfit and when i was not serious about oly-lifting.
there really is no magic formula in my workouts. I'm not very physically gifted. The simple truth is I work my a** off at an intensity most guys can keep up for only a week or a month. I've been working out like this for 16 or so years.

I second that, Josh. Your work ethic is very inspiring.

I'd like to follow in your footsteps in the TSC as well. My training log is in the WOD section if you're interested. I'm aiming to beat, at 5'10 and just over 170 lbs., a 400 lb. deadlift, 30 bwt pullups, and 120 snatches with the 24 kg on May, and then go up to the elite division by the next contest.

That is one of the funniest things I have read in a LONG time!

Thanks for the inspiration Josh!

It's always nice to get a glimpse into what the true badasses on this site are doing with their daily routines.

Thanks for that.

Agree with Robb on the quote; I laughed out loud at that one. Well put.
