Firefighter Combat Challenge competitor David Bowman and nutrition top gun, guru and geek Robb Wolf joined Justin on Episode 94 of CrossFit Radio, webcast live at 6 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009.
Justin began the show by reading an e-mail requesting the input of teachers who are using CrossFit in their P.E. classes. The listener thought information on successful strategies would help other teachers and affiliate owners alike—especially those who train adults who behave like children.
4:39 David Bowman is a trainer at CrossFit Charlotte, but he’s also one of the world’s top competitors in the Firefighter Combat Challenge. The world championships are going on right now in Las Vegas, Nev., and David is currently first in the grand national standings and the over-40 category. In the interview, which was taped before the competition, David describes how the competition works and how CrossFit training prepares him for it.
31:18 Robb Wolf is the owner of CrossFit NorCal and one of the instructors CrossFitters see at Nutrition Certifications. He talked about his new book that’s nearing completion, as well as the On Ramp program he’s initiated at his affiliate to get new members started off on the right foot both nutritionally and physically. Robb provided the low down on grains and why to avoid them, and he spent some time on post-WOD meals and why intermittent fasting isn’t for everyone.
