Teamwork and mateship, there is nothing better than pushing yourself in a great environment like the cube
What does your average daily diet consist of?
Breakfast: 4 eggs, turkey, spinach in a wrap
Lunch: Protein (chicken etc.) and salad in a wrap
Dinner: ideally protein and salad or veg (although I do have a weakness for chicken wraps from the local shops)
How important to you in training and life is your diet?
In regard to training diet is extremely important, if I eat bad for lunch or throughout the day my training lacks energy and stamina and my whole attitude is flat. To me the most important meal of the day is the meal pre workout, for me mainly lunch. A good, solid, wholesome diet helps every aspect of my everyday life, from my physical job, to training and my heavy social life, and let’s not even go into the dating game!
Any final comments?
I have been training in this environment for a couple of years now and have found everything is a progress, like double-unders (skipping), toes-2-bar or power cleans, when I started I couldn't do any of it, but over time I have progressed now I can string together 50 Dubs, can T2B easily and power clean 90kg. The key is to stick with it, learn, be patient and take on all the advice you can get from the guys who know how!
