A week in the life of Kelly Friel

A week in the life of Kelly Friel

Nutrition- I try to follow the Zone eating plan based on 14 blocks (3 blocks for breakfast, 3 for lunch, 3 for dinner and 1 morning and evening snack). I introduced this as I find it an easier to keep track of how much and what I am eating. I do sometimes find it hard to fit the snacks in during the day- especially on a Tuesday and Wednesday as these are my the days I work and coach.

I have my lunch and dinner meals from The Meal Box Company. I don’t have much time to prep food, so the convenience of a pre-prepped meals are fantastic and the meals taste great- I highly recommend them. Supplements wise I take Omega 3 (icon nutrition) and GLC 2000 with my break- fast and evening meal.

Pre and during training – Bcaa- (Icon nutrition)- fruit punch is my favourite.

Post Wod- I have a Icon nutrition shake usually Cookies N cream or Chocolate peanut butter- got to be the be the best tasting whey I have ever had!

My programming is provided by Ben Allen (aka coach) a very good friend and owner of Elevate performance. He has a very analytical approach to my training and has collected data from when i started Crossfit in Oct 2012, he knows what works well and how to motivate me!! He also under- stands my time constraints and has adapted my programming with this in mind. My longest ses- sion is normally about 2 hours- within this time I try to work on my weaknesses as well as trying to improve on my lifts, engine etc.
