    Our second article of the day is a great example of just how much BS floats around in the world of exercise and nutritional advice. I’d like you all to read it and post your thoughts and questions to comments. I’ll give my 2 cents by the end of the day.

    That article makes my head hurt. There are so many contradictory statements that basically fat people that want to lose “fat” are only going to focus on the point that maybe they can lose weight quickly by not eating breakfast then going for a walk around the block.
    —they will still eat shitty food the rest of the day
    —they will hate exercising because they feel like complete crap due to no energy
    —they will not even comprehend the statement that the only fat loss is the fat between the muscles which does nothing for overall weight loss and asthetics….not to mention insulin resistant fat around the abdomen/chest

    —article mentions nothing about what type of exercise is beneficial
    —article mentions nothing about and reasonable nutritional advice

    this article does nothing but reiterate the fact that we are an obese nation, with a shitty diet, that only wants the “quick fix” without working hard

    worthless at best, dangerous at worse

    on a side note: High Fructose Corn Syrup causes hypertension

    15 + 10 at 35 pounds

    I accidentally discovered a new “technique” for exiting the GHD machine this morning. It was an ugly first attempt, kinda knocked the breath out of me, bumped the back of my head and probably bruised my left iliac crest. But it was awesome, I don’t know what to call it yet…maybe “the flop”, the “dude just busted his ass”. I don’t know…It needs practice but once I improve it I’m sure it will shave seconds off all wods involving GHD situps.

    As Rx’d
    18+2 PJ

  7. Kerri says:

    13 rds even. Probably could have gone a little faster, but I’m still a little trepidatious (that’s for you Tasha!!) after nicking my shin pretty good last week. Always made up time on the PJ, but as always was slow as a turtle on the box jumps!

    Looking forward to seeing you all tonight at:
    The 1st Annual CFHSV CheatFest!

  8. Jason Terry says:

    the warmup was enough for me today
    12 rds +1 PJ 35# and 30″
    The box jump was easy, the PJ not so

    Greetings CFHSV Athletes,
    I just wanted to applaud everyone’s intensity today and I mean everyone. Outstanding job and way to hit the WOD full out.

    Todays WOD as RXd = 17 rds complete and 5 PJs.
    Way to beat the old man young stud Jake. Keep it up. I better figure something out to keep hanging with you.

    Once again great job to all today and Happy 4th of July.
    Train Hard, Train Smart, Train to Survive! Dennis

    PS Aaron in all my years of CF training I have never seen that happened nor could I have ever imagined that to occur. I give it a 10, but let’s not do it again. Way to stay strong and put out an impressive result in the WOD. You definitely make me and others feed off your strong desire to excel.

    I’m not sure what is going on, but I typed a response to the article of the day…. Twice.

    However, I’m unable to see it on the board.

  11. Robert S. says:

    I’m going to try it this way.

    RE: Article of the day

    This is a very narrow view of the science behind fasting and exercise. The key problem is that most Americans do not take the time to educate themselves about nutrition. Like Kevin said folks will read this and all they will take away from it is skip breakfast and kill it on the elliptical = six pack. The majority get their nutritional and exercise guidance from Muscle and Fitness or CNN and this is what they get.

    Many people in our community use Intermittent Fasting as part of the nutrition, and it seems to be successful for many.

    What is the difference in a CrossFitter doing intermittent fasting and what the article describes? The CF athlete will have a much better understanding of what is going on in the body at a hormonal level and finds those responses to be acceptable and/or favorable.

  12. Jason Terry says:

    I’m already fibbing about my workouts…………my box jump was only 24″!
