As we drive on through these tough WODs do you ever wonder how nutrition contributes to your performance? It’s something to definitely think about as we burn a lot of calories during these WODs. Proper nutrition will not only provide fuel for your day and CrossFit, but also aid in rest and recovery. What if you were guarenteed to hit new PR’s, lose more body fight, build strength, and improve your overall health markers with some adjustments to your diet? Would you make the adjustments? Stay tuned for more information as time goes on regarding nutrition and CrossFit.
Speaking of nutrition, we recently asked CrossFit NWA athlete Denny Hawkins what he does for nutrition and if it’s any different now that he prepares for the 2011 CrossFit Games.
CFNWA: So, Denny, are you a paleo guy, zone guy, or other?
Denny: Probably other, but leaning toward Paleo as I eat lean meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. I don’t measure though and try to take in what my body feels like it needs. Althouh, I do take in a lower amount of carbs than most CrossFit athletes probably do. I’m going to keep eating the way I have been.
