Pathways and mechanisms linking dietary components to cardiometabolic disease: thinking beyond calories

1

This paper summarizes the findings of the 2017 CrossFit Foundation Academic Conference, “Diet and Cardiometabolic Health - Beyond Calories.” The conference was convened to consider a specific question from multiple angles: Do specific dietary components have an impact on metabolism and/or disease risk that is not fully explained by their caloric value? The paper demonstrates the inherent flaws in existing evidence in nutrition science and highlights the single strongest conclusion that emerged from the conference: that compared to other carbohydrates (e.g., starch), added sugars lead to greater increases in a variety of cardiometabolic risk factors.

Running was the worst part for me. Broke the first round of bench into 4-3-3-3-3-2 but probably could’ve started more aggressively. Next round was 5-4-3-3, then 4-3-2

Chest to bar L pull-ups gassed me but I could do a set of 6-8 at the beginning of each round and hold sets of 4-5 well. Last round 3-3-3 to try not to get too out of breath before the run. No asthma today but I had to walk the first 100m of the 2nd 800.

Gotta love a little upper-body push and pull combo! Here are some thoughts on this one:


Bench Press: I consider the prescribed weight to be on the heavier side of moderate and very doable, for many, when arranged in this fashion. I recommend scaling the load if my athletes can’t perform over 10 consecutive reps at the prescribed load. If their max capacity is less than 10 reps, it could lead to this being a very bench press dominant workout. With that being said, if they can hit some bench presses with the prescribed load and have a goal to attempt this workout as prescribed, I might let them give it a try. I’ll encourage these athletes to break up reps into small sets, early in the workout, to avoid premature muscle failure. A general rule I’ll coach my athletes, in this category, is to do no more than approximately 1/3 of their max capacity in any single set. For example, If their max capacity is 9 reps at 175lbs, I might recommend they only do sets of 3 reps, with quick rest periods, to achieve the rep goal for each round. For athletes that cannot bench press the prescribed weight consistently, I will have them scale to a load that will allow for no more than 2-3 quick breaks on each round.


Strict L Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups: The volume of reps accumulated for this movement will be very challenging. Many of my athletes will need to modify this movement in order to maintain consistency and its strict nature. As a general guideline, if I have an athlete that does not have the capacity to complete 7-10 reps consecutively, I will most likely reduce the reps. Beyond reducing the reps, I may have these athletes modify the movement to a tuck L chest-to-bar pull-up or an L chest-to-bar pull-up with one leg tucked and the other leg extended. For athletes that cannot perform an L chest-to-bar pull-up, they will modify the movement to either a band-assisted L chest-to-bar pull-up or a combination of band-assisted strict chest-to-bar pull-ups with a 20-30 second L hang variation after the completion of the set. Further scaling will be done on an individual basis.


Run: I will have most athletes complete the prescribed distance. If 800 meters will take longer than 5:00 or if an athlete is not prepared for the total volume, I will reduce the distance to 400-600 meters on each effort.


Equipment Considerations

Bench Press: Attempt to have spotters available at all times, even if this means that athletes need to share a bench. If benches are not available, this movement can be modified to movements such as a barbell floor press, dumbbell floor press, or a dumbbell bench press with the athlete’s back resting on a medicine ball.

INTENDED STIMULUS

.

This is what we crossfitters love. This is a well-rounded classic piece. It just has it all. We have a pressing movement paired with a pulling movement. You pass from lifting weights to gymnastics to mono-structural work. Upper body and lower body are in here, with a heavy dose of core. All in a 21-15-9 schema that really favors intensity. Especially because the run is at the end so you might as well push it like a maniac. Keep a few things in mind. The weight on the barbell is heavy but it should be something you could do 21 unbroken repetitions if you went for it when fresh. Scale the pull-ups so that you preserve the L-sit pulling aspect of it and the full range of motion: chest-to-bar. Keep the number of pull-ups so that you can keep moving at a good pace. If your best 5K is above 30 minutes decrease the distance to something you can do in around four minutes. Fast athletes will get this done close to 15. Most athlete should aim to keep it under 25 minutes.

Globo Scale: Run Sub 1000m row or 50 cal assault/echo bike, 60 cal aerodyne, or 2000m C2 airbike. If using a treadmill use a slight incline. Bench press: Safety first if using a barbell, have a spotter, leave the bar unclamped, or have squat safeties set up. If you do not have a barbell and bench, sub strict ring dips AND Hand Release pushups 1/1 OR 3/1 hand release pushups with feet piked up on a box or bench to increase resistance. Dumbbells sub 70/50lb DB's for the bench. Pullups are self explanatory.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT:

Is this another Just a Workout? Yup, I think so. Again, when I say it’s Just A Workout, I mean that it’s in that in between land of CrossFit workouts: Not a slow, For Quality thing and not a sprint followed by a painful death. This will take somewhere around 20 minutes, will have to be modified in some way to stay in that ballpark, and should be pretty easy to do so. The obvious scale would be regular L-pull-up instead of chest to bar.


I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: I can finish it in the 20-minute ballpark


ORGANIC SCALES:

Strength — as is, keep the run a little slow so the form on the other movements stays good

Stamina — mush everything together into 1 round. You’ll probably need to lighten up the weight here. And possible break L-pull-ups into strict-ish kipping pull-ups and L-hangs or L-sits

Endurance — as is, just lighten up the weight (maybe split up pull-ups like listed above) and hit the run faster than you’re comfortable

Flexibility — make sure you actually go to the bottom of your pull-up. I, unfortunately, got lazy on the round of 21.


NEUROLOGICAL SCALES:

Coordination — kipping pull-ups (add reps if need be). Or just regular strict pull-ups without moving one single millimeter of your spine (don’t worry about height).

Accuracy — chest actually touches the bar, even splits on the run

Agility — quick on the bench press transition, but make sure your shoulders don’t come up off the bench when you’re at the top of your press

Balance — falling emphasis while running. every now and then put a finger slightly in front of your belly button and try to lean into it.


GROUP VERSION: Ricky Reps on pull-ups, floor press for bench press (dumbbells if needed) or push-ups with a wider grip if equipment is limited. Run will be scaled to 600s for most so it can be pretty fast.


WARMUP:

Running jump rope — running prep

Handstand — overhead prep

Pistol — you probably suck at them (as do I) and it’s good prep for running

Ring row — prep to keep shoulders back on bench

[insert thing you suck at]


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 6. Just A Workout with a touch of muscular fatigue that will induce an unwanted (or wanted, depending on who you are) rest.
