    Coincidentally, I tried to do Jackie this morning, but I got it wrong – thought it was 1500m row.

    1500m row, 50 thrusters, 30 pullups: 11:46. I guess my Jackie would have been a couple minutes faster.

    For those who don’t want to dig through the scientific gobbledygook of the ASCM Roundtable concerning the physiologic effects of Creatine supplementation, here’s the skinny.
    If you are performing a short duration high intensity exercise, Creatine supplementation is beneficial.
    Lets say the WOD is Front Squats 3-3-3-3-3. High intensity, short duration, full recovery between efforts. Creatine supplementation may very well make the difference between a 3rd rep miss and a PR.
    If the WOD is Fran, maybe an unbroken first round of Thruster instead of stopping to breath half way through. Beyond that first round, your body shifts to using the glycolytic and oxidative metabolic pathways for fuel. Creatine doesn’t effect these types of metabolism.
    If your a GloboGym bench press and curls junkie… creatine will make a noticeable difference. For a CrossFitter… not so much. What we do tends to hit multiple metabolic pathways. Having said that, I use it. Off and on, sometimes. When I’m consistent, it seems beneficial.
    The down side is cramps. I’ve not had this problem, YMMV. The benefit of the Roundtable article is as a handy reference when your childs know-it-all football coach wants to blather on about how it “kills the liver” or “causes kidney stones”. You have ASCM Ivory Tower literature to reference when you call them out on their silly bullshit.

    still sick so no WOD for me today…sucks.

    loved the cooking class yesterday! big thanks to Robert for cooking a non-egg breakfast dish 🙂

    One idea that would help: maybe have a sheet typed up with the meals that are being cooked w/ instructions, ingredients, etc. That way we can have something to follow along with.

    Thanks again to Russell and Robert. I bought some jicama and celery root yesterday…we will see how a jicama/deer mash is!

  7. Scott says:

    Jackie – 7:20. File that WOD under “Gives you Popeye Forearms.”

  8. Tye says:

    6:47 RX’d

    I’m with Scott, forearms were on fire, quads too.

    Thanks for the workshop yesterday, it was great. Looking forward to putting all the recipes to use at some point soon. I’ll echo Emily’s comments, a sheet like that would be really helpful and informative.
