Chances are, if you google any Crossfit workout or diet, you'll see an image of Camille Leblanc Bazinet. That's because CLB has positioned herself as a face of Crossfit after winning the 2014 Crossfit Games. A good looking strong athlete, Camille Leblanc Bazinet is striving to get back on the podium at the 2016 games after a disappointing 2015 games. Let's look at the workout and diet Camille uses.
Camille Leblanc Bazinet has often said that while she relies on her coach, CJ from Crossfit Invictus, to program her workouts, she has never been a fan of traditionally following Crossfit Workouts Of The Day.
Again I have to agree with CLB, a Crossfit WOD is fantastic for a general class but high level Crossfit athletes are different than other people that "do Crossfit" so CLB is smart is designing her own workouts to address her weaknesses. Generally training twice per day with a split session of heavy strength work in the morning and conditioning work in the evening, Camille is sure to identify her weak points first.
If you asked Camille what her best strength is, she would likely tell you kipping pull ups. The entire Crossfit community acknowledges her strength at those movements.
When asked by Dailyburn what the hardest workout she ever has done was, Camille pointed to a workout in the 2014 Crossfit Games called the Triple 3 WOD
The workout included.
3000 meter row
300 double unders
3 mile run
Why was it so hard? Camille acknowledges that the row is a weakness since she’s one of the shorter athletes and while she tries to train the row, there’s only so much she can do.
Camille Leblanc-Bazinets diet is what interests me the most. Unlike other Crossfitters, Camille does favor a more whole food approach to her diet without focusing entirely on a paleo approach. One of the bigger chances that Camile has made has been to include more protein shakes to supplement her intake.
When asked how she manages to say on her diet, Camille points to the fact that if she cheats too often on her diet or doesn't monitor her food intake, her performance in movements will go down. Knowing that keeps her on track.
