Chris Spealler bio:
Started CrossFit: November, 2006
Training Facility: CrossFit Park City
Coach/Trainer: Me, myself and I. Some great resources within the CrossFit community as well
Athletic background: wrestling
Supplements Chris Spealler Uses:
Progenex Recovery protein – I don’t get nearly as sore after workouts and I’m able to have more productive training sessions day in and day out. Especially when I am getting closer to competitions and working out more than once a day I notice that I feel more “fresh” for the next training session, allowing me to work harder and reap the benefits of the work I’m putting in.

I take PROGENEX Recovery after every workout that has some sort of met con in it. If I’m at home I use the mix with water in a blender bottle and when I’m on the road I use the super convenient travel bottles. Just screw it on a water bottle and done, easy day. I’m going to start taking the Progenex More Muscle product after heavier days and see what benefits it provides me with.
I find myself inspired by those who refuse to quit. It can be anyone from a top games competitor to the newest of athletes. The will to continue and never give up is one that you cannot teach people. I think it exposes true character and is part of what I hope t be identified with. My fuel for this attitude personally is that I believe I’ve been given a gift. I want to use it to the best of its potential and my training and performance is a way of giving back to my Creator who has given so much to me. My wife and little boy also make it difficult to not work hard when you so much support behind you like that.

Training Workout Regime
Typical Training Week:
Two on, one off, three on, one off. I use some Westside Barbell methods, and 5,3,1 to work to continue working on my weaknesses. This time of year, I’m hitting up anywhere from 3-4 met cons/week on top of this.
Mon: DE upper body followed by a met con of choice
Tues: 5,3,1 back squat followed by either accessory work or a met con
Thurs: ME upper body followed by accessory work or a met con
Fri: DE lower body followed by a met con or accessory work
Sat: Met con
I try to eat clean and generally well-balanced meals. I don’t weigh or measure my food but do try to eat frequently. with good quality macronutrients. Chris is working on gaining weight for the 2012 CrossFit Games and using several weight gain methods.
I take fish oil and PROGENEX for recovery. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my training since implementing this.
