Dani Speegle Training Regime
When it comes to training, Dani Speegle likes to mix it up. You have to when you are a CrossFitter. She prefers heavy compound weights that push her body to its growth potential. Dani also likes isolation movements and being able to condition specific body areas at a time. She also works out to build fat without losing muscle.
It is said that she works out approximately 5 or 6 times a week, and has one rest day for recovery.
Like many CrossFitters, she also likes to hit the outdoors and use that as a gym. In one post on Instagram she reported a mountain climb that had the following specs:
Elevation: 11,207 feet
Distance: 16 mile-round trip
Elevation Gane: 3,920ft
With a 23% grade for the last mile
Total time: 6.5 hours
Dani Speegle also posted on Instagram that she was recently asked how she uses her beam on days when she is not at the gym. This is her normal routine that starts early in the morning:
- 6:30 a.m.: Clarity powder in my morning coffee
- 7:00 a.m.: “the one” tincture dropped into breakfast bowl
- 7:30 a.m.: a little bit of the boost gel on my ankles and knees while I stretched a bit before starting the hike!
- 3:00 p.m.: end of the hike! Time for my revive capsules!
- 5:00 p.m.: “the one” tincture again in my afternoon tea.
By 6:00 p.m. she is bathing her lower half in the “fixer” so her joints “don’t feel like trash tomorrow.” She also uses nighttime dream powder in the evenings.
Diet and Nutrition
Dani Speegle is a staunch proponent of the clean diet, much like many other CrossFit athletes. She doesn’t cut too many foods from her diet, but focuses on healthy eating that nourishes. She does have a few cheat moments here and there as well.
Dani Speegle also uses a variety of supplements:
• Whey protein isolate
Dani Speegle does not post much about her personal life, but she is always crediting her coach Asante Richards who started it all for her. She has also been known to be inspired by fellow CrossFit athlete Brooke Ence who she has described as inspiring in multiple ways.
What she may not know is that others describe Dani Speegle in exactly the same way.
She is a woman of worth, a fitness icon and influencer, and inspiration to many.
