Warming up Before Workouts
Alison likes to warm up before her workouts by using a jumping rope. This is one of her favorite forms of cardio, which not only works on her heart rate and reduces body fat, but it also improves her stamina, conditioning, and explosiveness.
“I pretty much use jump rope every day, even if it’s just for warming up. I think it is perfect for improving myself as an athlete because not only is it aerobic, it also works on your timing, coordination, body awareness and explosiveness which are all vital components of my sport. “
In terms of her actual workouts, Alison trains like most CrossFit athletes – focusing on heavy Olympic lifts which make her strong and fit.
She trains anywhere from two to six hours per day, five times per week. Although it’s an extremely challenging training routine, it’s very much worth it in Alison’s eyes.
Alison Scudds isn’t a fan of overcomplicating her diet. She follows a simple rule where she’ll eat nutritious and clean foods on the days that she trains, rewarding herself with her favorite ‘cheat meal’ on the weekends.
“Quality foods on a consistent basis, pizza and donuts on the weekends.”
