Use the knowledge to benefit the health of yourself, your families, and those close to you. The strongest, smartest, most diligent have always been more successful. It's not up to government to regulate what is good for you!

This doesn’t have to do with this particular workout but for wod’s that’s require rowing, what setting/resistance should it be on?

July 29th, 2020 at 5:33 pm

William,

It just depends what works best for you. I always use 10, but that’s not always what’s best for everyone. Take some time and experiment, and that can change anyway as you get stronger and fitter. Just make sure your tow form is good. Happy Crossfitting!

I agree with Az. As a baseline, I would say that will depend on your strength and technique. When rowing for calories, on 10, I usually get one Calorie per pull. The less resistance, the more pulls you will need for one calorie. On the distance workoutS, let’s say you’re doing a 5k, I would try on 7 and adjust according to how you feel. Focus on long even pulls.

Commented on: The Toxic Truth About Sugar

I’m of mixed minds on this. The libertarian in me wants to keep the government out of my diet as much as possible. However, it’s hard to observe the health devastation around me and not want to do something. Taxes on sugar sweetened beverages have been tried in a few places. Berkeley, CA placed a 2 cent/oz tax on sugary drinks. Seattle did the same. In both cases consumption dropped by around 20%. Of course, coffee beverages were exempt even though Starbucks drinks can be massive sugar bombs. The argument was that it would place a heavy burden on coffee shops to account for every shot of syrup. Then why not tax the syrup? For soda dispensers, they taxed the syrup so there is precedent for this. I think politicians just like their caramel frappuccinos too much.


Some cities tried to disallow sugary foods from food stamp programs, but were shut down by the USDA. That’s unfortunate. Poor people have less access to healthy options in a lot of areas. If they couldn’t spend food stamps on junk food, I’m sure healthier options would find their way into the food deserts.


A good start might be to stop subsidizing food crops that turn into junk food. Corn, wheat and soy being good examples. We already placed an import tax on cane sugar. But this was mainly just a protectionist measure for our farmers. Corn syrup was an easy replacement for cane sugar.

I completely agree. I don’t think the first step is to tax or ban any products. That could lead to banning or taxing of other things the government thinks is unhealthy, such as red meat. And they do not have a great track record of knowing what is and isn’t healthy for us. But decreasing farm subsidies would be a great first step. Also, actually looking at the totality of the evidence when creating government guidelines (or just decreasing the impact of these guidelines altogether) could move us in a better direction as well. Luckily they are continuing to recommend less sugar, but when you also decrease fat intake to such a low level food becomes bland and people don’t want it. So they end up overeating anyway, and most likely they reach for the sugary/processed foods even though they know it isn’t good for them.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

I thought about this one when I first saw it. I thought about this one while I was doing it this morning. And I'm thinking about it while I look at it now. I am kinda stumped. All I can say is I would love to see how an elite CrossFitter would perform in this workout. Are the 40 doubles a long enough rest for the 20 REPS OF 50 POUNDS push presses?? 7 minutes is an awfully short time for a workout like this, in my view.


WHAT ABOUT THE MOVEMENTS

Push press - jumping, pushing, overhead, open-chain (dumbbells), upright torso demand, external load

Double under - jumping, elasticity, extra ROM (just a little), accuracy component


WHAT ABOUT THE FORMAT

Beats the hell out of me.


TECHNIQUE SCALE

Keep the weight heavy and the reps the same, also keep the double unders, double the time frame


CONSISTENCY SCALE

Lighten up the weight to something that can be done straight through for lots of rounds, adjust to singles if needed, double the time


INTENSITY SCALE

Keep dumbbell weight same and doubles same, adjust reps to something that would not have to be broken up for 7 minutes.


MY STUFF

20# push press, mixed one-foot singles (alternating every 2-4) and doubles, an unknown number of rounds in 7 minutes


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 4
