There is a lot of education to be made here. I see so many parents bring their kid to a sport meet with Gatorade or Powerade. They don't do it to hurt their kids, they do it because they are convinced that it is the "best" for them.

It will take some time to undo what these giants with lots of $$$ decided to push in order to maximise their profit.

P.T. Barnum was right and I'm living proof of that. When my children were sick, out would come the Gatorade to replenish those lost electrolytes. Like Dr. Gillin so aptly points out, it's merely a sugar solution, not a balanced salt solution. So, guess what? I only succeeded in spiking their insulin. Not quite the effect I was looking for. So, thank you Gatorade for adding to the "mess" and proving my foolishness.

Here is my thought: When I see this piece from Goya, I cannot help seeing it through the lens of his more symbolic pieces like "Saturn Devouring his Son," or "Collossus," both of which evoke a far more visceral response and are more expressive of his worldview. Taken alone, for someone without a sense for the history or at of this age, this work seems more begnign, a simple portraiture. Everyone will see this work through the lens of their own context, and context is how meaning is constructed and understood. I don't know why Goya painted this work. Whether his motivation was commission or just something he had to get out of his head is part of the story. I'm compelled to dig deeper.

Question.....I’m looking to get the 5.11 vest. Any feedback as far as getting the cast iron or laser cut plates? Not sure of which one to purchase with the vest.


Many thanks,


John

@johnkianka Pay $15 extra for the nicer plates. This is a one time purchase bc you won’t need another pair. Read the reviews. I have them. There’s a difference in how it feels. You’d like the others just fine but, IMO if you’re spending $200 on a vest, spend $15 on the best plates.

Hi John-

I have a 5.11 with the "regular" plates and I love it. I have not tried the "laser cut" ones so I can't really give an honest comparison though. It is very comfortable-as much as a weight vest can be:)

Gatorade has marketed to make even us doctors think that it has electrolytes. But it doesn’t. The sodium content in blood is 135-145 mEq per liter. The sodium content of normal saline is 154 mEq per liter. Although Gatorade’s bottle lists sodium as 450 mg...that’s mg, not mEQ. In fact Gatorade has only 20 mEq/L of sodium. So essentially sugar water. And the sugar just gets people drinking more and more and more of it.


Anyone who has children knows that work still needs to be done regarding Gatorade. Every sports field has young children, some 5 years of age playing maybe 5 minutes of soccer, fully equipped and ready with....Gatorade. Fluorescent colored sugar filled Gatorade. Why? Because the kids drink the sugary drink, parents have been led to believe they need electrolytes, and that Gatorade provides it. It’s Brawndo.......every “idiot” thinks they need it, but all it’s doing is killing what should be growing.


I love the solution “drink when you’re thirsty, don’t when you’re not.” Here’s another simple solution: “Don’t drink Gatorade. Don’t give Gatorade to your kids.”

Coach, this is a great thread from the archives. So many gems in the old discussion boards.


I'd like to comment on your oft-repeated challenge: "For years I've been challenging the exercise science community to name a single contribution coming from academia that has changed the way any athlete or coach trained for a sport."


As a member of said community, I cannot name one such contribution. And regarding your current focus on training for health (as opposed to sport), I can't say we've made much progress there either.


As a field, we couldn't even define fitness in a useful or scientifically defensible manner. The current generation is becoming increasingly aware of this and our many other shortcomings.


But what I can say is, the tides are starting to change. Academia is catching on to the fact that we've had it wrong, and there is a movement afoot.


Advice to 'just move more and eat less', to get 10,000 steps a day, to accumulate 500 MET*min per week of activity etc. etc., is increasingly regarded as inadequate or even useless by those of us working in the field, and perhaps even more so by our students. It's bullshit.


Moving forward, I would be very interested in your opinion on what the research priorities should be for modern day exercise scientists who understand what fitness is.


What is the role for the academy in the broader mission to bring the concept of work capacity across broad time and modal domains to the masses?


If, as I suspect, there is a growing number of trustworthy scientists participating in the peer review process, and we can restore our collective trust in the evidence base, what new evidence would you like to see emerge?


And where do we seek funding for this sort of research, if traditional/federal funding sources cannot be trusted as free of bias and corruption?


These are the questions that scientists on the cutting edge are grappling with in 2019.
