Rasmus Wisbech Andersen

CrossFit Pro Athlete

Born and raised in Odense, Denmark. Rasmus Wisbech Andersen started his CrossFit journey in 2012 with no prior athletic experience. Aiming to improve himself both physically and mentally, he embraced the challenge with both hands and started training like never before.

Less than a year later, Rasmus made his first appearance at the Europe Regionals where he took 13th place. His love for CrossFit was born, leading him to move to San Diego CA to join a CrossFit Invictus team.

Since making the leap, Rasmus has helped the team to win the 2014 Affiliate Cup Championships, as well as making his own impact at the 2016 CrossFit Games where he took a solid 25th place.

Nutrition

Rasmus Wisbech Andersen mainly eats a high-protein diet, but he’ll also add in carbs and fats when he needs them. Most of his carbs come in the morning and after workouts. This maximizes his insulin response and prevents any carbs from spilling over into body fat.

He doesn’t restrict himself too much and eats what he can, when he can. For an athlete like Rasmus, it’s crucial to keep his calories high when training several hours per day for CrossFit. His diet will consist of slow-acting carbs, some healthy fats, and plenty of lean proteins throughout the day. Although, if he feels like eating a burger or an ice cream, he won’t hold back.
