Depending on her coach to program and design her workouts, Brooke generally trains at least three times per day a few times per week according to articles. That’s a lot of volume and work. It’s also why Crossfit competitors are, generally, leaner than figure competitors. Obviously, Brooke needs to really prioritize her recovery and she strictly schedules rest and recovery days.
Brookes recovery advice is pretty basic yet very powerful. She relies on getting more sleep and just spending time in the sun, where she no doubt naps, at the beach or in a pool. Brooke favors just living a normal life outside the gym which is a great tips as way too many people either obsess about their results or, in the Crossfit community, people feel the need to always do something active.

On the diet front, while Brooke doesn’t follow the generic Crossfit plaeo type of diet, she does employ a high protein, moderate fat, low carb diet. While I generally favor gluten free approach, they aren’t 100% essential for burning body fat. In The Physique Formula, I talk about needing to find the right amount of nutrients for your body type. All too often competitors in Crossfit just blindly follow a paleo diet without any reasoning behind it and without realizing how it can potentially increase your cortisol and reduce your recovery.
In a recent Pure Pharma video, Brooke Ence discusses her diet and saying that while she did try a strict paleo diet, she found it was not for her. Instead she focuses on hitting daily macronutrient numbers and finds that to be a more effective way to build muscle and burn fat. It allows her to have just enough food coming in to all ow her to push herself.
