#51 - Lucas Parker On Emotional Highs & Lows, Hacking Your Training & Impressing The Ladies

Today we have the first of a 2-part interview with one of the great men in CrossFit, Lucas Parker. He hails from Victoria, British Columbia, and is a three-time Top 20 finisher at the Reebok CrossFit Games. He advanced to the Games again in 2016, making it an impressive six consecutive years at the sport’s premier event.

We learn more about how he views training vs. exercise and how integrating outdoor adventures has benefitted him. He shares with us the changes he’s made through the years to become a better athlete. We touch briefly on how he supports himself financially and what he thinks about working on a desk as well.

We then talk more about training, how Lucas adjusts his attitude, his mental practices, and if he has a routine. We then discuss oly lifting and how much time he actually invests to develop this aspect. Then our convo goes into a comparison and contrast of CrossFit and GRID.

Wrapping up we go to the Good, Bad and Science and then a lighthearted turn as our gents share a bit of their embarrassing moments when it comes to impressing the ladies.

Great convo with Lucas Parker guys! We hope you enjoy it.
