Regionals Weekend #1 kicks off this Friday and we can’t wait to see what the athlete’s are going to bring. We’ll be in Albany, New York at the East Regional cheering on Puori athlete Christian Harris. For the first time in the last few years, Christian will be competing as an individual. We chatted with him to see where his head’s at before the competition begins.
Will you be at the East Regional? Make sure to stop by the Puori booth. For every order made over $25, you’ll get a free Puori t-shirt. If you won’t be at Regionals, keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for an exclusive look at our new merchandise, the booth and behind-the-scenes of Regionals.
Christian Harris Interview
What is your number 1 training tip?
Whatever it is you do, do it with a purpose.
What’s your mantra?
Head down, mouth shut, work.
What is your biggest motivator for competing?
How do you define success in terms of Regionals?
Giving my full effort, and controlling what I can control.
How does balance play out in your life?
As someone that wears many hats, its one of the toughest things to manage. Family comes first. I’m fortunate enough to have a team around me that makes the dream work.
How has your training changed since the Open?
After the Open, there’s been an increase in volume, more of a focus on high skilled gymnastics movements, some longer aerobic pieces.
Describe your recovery routine.
Nutrition and supplements play a big role in my recovery. Following an RPStrength Lifestyle and having a meal prep company handle that stuff makes it easy for me. Taking my daily doses of O3, M3, & D3 keeps me feeling at my best, and allow me to recover faster and train harder. I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep as long as the little ones don’t wake daddy in the middle of the night.
First time as an individual in a long time – what are your goals?
It’s been quite some time. My number one goal this weekend is to give every workout my all. Like I said above, I will control the things I am able to, and everything else will turn out exactly how it’s supposed to.
