As part of my CrossFit Games training, I need a nutritionist. I need to bulk, and I want to do it the right way. Well, I’ve heard great things about the RP (Renaissance Periodization) Diet. They offer a free 14-day trial, so I signed myself up.
I quickly realized this diet plan is not for me. Essentially, you decide what you want to eat. You scan and/or input what you want to eat and then the app tells you how much to eat based on your previously inputted dietary goals (losing weight, gaining muscle, etc.). This did not work for me. I did not like not knowing how much I had to eat.
You could swap out nutrition needs if you ate too much or too little at a meal. You could also pay for a professional nutritionist to help you meet your goals. In short, the RP Diet App was really complicated, and I don’t like having to scan my food. Finding the food if you didn’t enter it sucked, too.
I’ve been mainly doing the Zone Diet for the last few years, which you know ahead of time how much to eat. It works for the most part for me. Still, I will be partnering with a nutritionist to get me to where I need to be.
In my last blog post, I mentioned the fact that I had to do the first phase of the Turkey Challenge, an upcoming CrossFit competition, at home using the WODProof app. This is an app that allows you to record your CrossFit or other workouts easily. It has a clock in the screen, which is one of the main reasons why the Turkey Challenges wants us to use it.
I’ve done CrossFit competitions before using this app
See example video here:
The key is testing it ahead of time.
3 TIPS FOR USING WODPROOF APP
Use airplane mode. They are serious about using airplane mode. I had to redo an entire 20-minute workout because I got a phone call during my taping. It causing the app to stop recording. This royally sucked.
Test the export method. Make sure the video will be recorded to your phone, as well as in the app. This will make exporting it to YouTube or other video streaming platform easier.
Have someone film you. I’ve set WODProof up before in the corner of my garage, but if you are moving around a lot, it’s worth it to have someone follow you around. Starbucks bribes work for my kids.
OTHER USES FOR WODPROOF
WODProof app can also be used to record your movements when you are working on technical CrossFit or weightlifting moves, such as bar muscle ups or snatches. They have an online community where you can post your workouts, too. Learn more here, or download it in your PlayStore today!
I first tried Born Primitive‘s products a year ago. I ordered a bra and a pair of shorts. I wasn’t a fan of the shorts that weren’t as tight as I liked them so I didn’t visit their website again.
However, I received an email from them recently and purchased another bra from them.
I liked it. I bought the Vitality Coral Sports bra. I had purchased a Moxie bra a year ago.
I highly recommend the bras. They fit snug and are super cute and are awesome for CrossFit workouts, especially the long ones. I only bought one pair of shorts a year ago and they just ride up a lot during workouts. That being said, I haven’t purchased any since then so am unsure now of the fit.
I am looking to purchase another bra once I can justify the expense (over $50 with shipping) again.
Great product. A military company that proudly supports our troops. Check them out today!
