    They were advertising the oktoberfest games on the radio in Nashville yesterday. Sounds like it will be a fun event. Good luck to everyone competing.

    thrusters, 5 reps
    hang power clean, 7 reps
    sumo dead lift high pull, 10 reps
    AMRAP in 20 min
    8 rds as rx’d

    The restorative capacities of a high carbohydrate-protein (CHO-PRO) beverage containing electrolytes and a traditional 6% carbohydrate-electrolyte sports beverage (SB) were assessed after glycogen-depleting exercise. Postexercise ingestion of the CHO-PRO beverage, in comparison with the SB, resulted in a 55% greater time to exhaustion during a subsequent exercise bout at 85% maximum oxygen consumption (VO(2)max). The greater recovery after the intake of the CHO-PRO beverage could be because of a greater rate of muscle glycogen storage. Therefore, a second study was designed to investigate the effects of after exercise CHO-PRO and SB supplements on muscle glycogen restoration. Eight endurance-trained cyclists (VO(2)max = 62.1 +/- 2.2 ml.kg(-1) body wt.min(-1)) performed 2 trials consisting of a 2-hour glycogen-depletion ride at 65-75% VO(2)max. Carbohydrate-protein (355 ml; approximately 0.8 g carbohydrate (CHO).kg(-1) body wt and approximately 0.2 g protein.kg(-1) body wt) or SB (355 ml; approximately 0.3 g CHO.kg(-1) body wt) was provided immediately and 2 hours after exercise. Trials were randomized and separated by 7-15 days. Ingestion of the CHO-PRO beverage resulted in a 17% greater plasma glucose response, a 92% greater insulin response, and a 128% greater storage of muscle glycogen (159 +/- 18 and 69 +/- 32 micromol.g(-1) dry weight for CHO-PRO and SB, respectively) compared with the SB (p < 0.05). These findings indicate that the rate of recovery is coupled with the rate of muscle glycogen replenishment and suggest that recovery supplements should be consumed to optimize muscle glycogen synthesis as well as fluid replacement.

    The Zone diet is a daily recovery supplement.

  5. Craig Herr says:

    Russell I love that you are so short and sweet–it saves so much space and typing time.

  6. Emily D. says:

    I had a coworker tell me today that Crossfit is dangerous and it going to hurt me. This was all completed with a hand drawn diagram of the future destruction of my back and spine.

    He also told me that eating paleo isn’t healthy.

    Good luck this weekend!

    Oktoberfest Event One Results:
    1st place: Brandon Phillips (score 138)
    2nd place: Russell (137)
    3rd or somewhere around that: Kevin Lowe (131)

    Followed by Zak at 110 and I think Daniel at 95. Not sure about the others…and these results were heard thirdhand over the phone. I will be more accurate tomorrow when I am there.

    Sounds like everyone did GREAT!

  8. Katherine Berger says:


    I think Brandon may have gotten 148.

    Also, Clint got 97.

  9. Tricer says:

    Wonder what would happen if they added fat to that recovery drink….? Probably end up with Chocolate Milk which is the ‘new’ sports drink


    Reminding me…. made a 40-30-30 4 block meal out of starbucks cafe mocha + chocolate protien powder. Fantastic.

  10. Tricer says:

    Way to go CFHSV! Kick ass!

  11. Robert Montgomery says:

    Did Octoberfest WOD:

    Deadlifts: 83
    Thrusters: 16
    Power Cleans: 24

    Total: 123

  12. Patrick says:

    Dude with everyone yelling and cheering, you’d be one of the front runners. Too bad you couldn’t compete. The CFHSV crew is looking strong.
    I got to Nashville early and stood at the registration desk watching Russell and Kevin fill out the forms. Having an internal debate between my ego and good sense. “Hell your here, why not just sign up and give it a whirl…so what that everything hurts, my hands are ripped to shit, and I haven’t taken a rest day.” In a rare moment of clarity…I walked away.
