Overused or Malnourished…What causes Osteoarthritis? Tue, Sep 7th (100 DOB Day 69)

 Congrats to Rob G.  CFHR Coach of the Quarter.
Rob has grown as an athlete and a Coach over the past 2 years.  His persistent research and study into athletic performance have paid dividends in his own abilities and in his coaching. We are proud to have him as one of our top Coaches.

For time:
3 rope ascents (sub is 15 pullups, ring body rows or rope getups)
   30 Wall Ball (20/14)
   30 Ground-to-Overhead (95/65)
   30 KB/DB Swings (2 pood/1.5 pood or 65lb/55lb)
   30 Overhead Squats (95/65)
   30 Burpees
   30 Ground-to-Shoulder (95/65)
3 rope ascents

Level 1 = 15 reps instead of 30.  Level 1 rope climb sub = 10 reps instead of 15)

Lots of elements to this one.
Ground-to-overhead = any type of lift to get the bar up & locked out overhead with full hip extension and legs locked out.  This could be a power clean to a push press, or even a snatch.
Ground-to-shoulder = any lift to get the bar up to the racked position on the shoulders (most likely a version of the clean).

Post WOD Mobility: More Hips

Last week, I posted an article about Osteoporosis, it’s ties to heart disease and the physiological realities of calcium intake vs. calcium absorption.  Today, Mark Sisson takes a different look at bones.  This time, it’s Arthritis and the common perception that age and overuse cause Osteoarthritis and joint degeneration…as opposed to nutrition and other lifestyle factors.
