“Attention Kohl’s customers. We’re hiring for the Holiday Seasons! Are you active? Can you lift things? If you fit this description, then see any store associate for an application!”
Words on a Blog cannot express our gratitude for those still “downrange” taking the fight to the bad guys and to those who have fought and will fight for this great nation of ours.
There is a very meaningful statement in CrossFit:
The Magic is in the movementsThe Art is in the ProgrammingThe Science is in the Explanation
Shoulder press 1-1-1-1-1 reps
Push press 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Push Jerk 5-5-5-5-5 reps
“Type 2 diabetes is more common than type 1 diabetes. In both types of diabetes, the body has trouble controlling blood sugar due to problems with insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar.”
“The cause of the increase in diabetes incidence is likely related to changes in obesity and lifestyle,” write Fox and colleagues. “Obesity and weight gain are the leading risk factors for the development of diabetes.”
How can we be missing this? In a pharmaceutically driven health care industry, we’d rather coddle people through and give them drugs to treat symptoms than open our eyes to what we already know is the true root of the problem. Diabetes is not caused by obesity. Diabetes is a symptom of a greater ill: metabolic derangement–chronic insulin resistance (hyperinsulinemia) brought on by too much sugar (read refined carbohydrates). Obesity is a symptom of hyperinsulinemia (remember Syndrome X and the “deadly quartet”) but it’s not the cause of diabetes. Too much sugar=hyperinsulinemia = Diabetes (and more)…a public miseducated and killing itself.
A sincere thank you to everyone who attended Saturday’s Free WOD and Nutrition Seminar. Everyone put out an INCREDIBLE effort. A special thanks to the large Ft Eustis turnout and the Navy representation (including a HARDCORE veteran Navy SEAL). We saw huge performances by Jean (first ring dips!), Will, Jalpa, Jesse, Sandi, Sheetal, Carol and Brandon. We even had 15 year-old Beth, who on the day of her high school Homecoming dance, decided to spend the morning working hard with us instead of primping all day…good on ya Beth, great job!
