6 Things Not to say to throwers...

6 Things Not to say to throwers Posted on June 24, 2015 Sometimes when you are walking through the bush you may stumble across a snake sunning itself and minding its own business. A good way to get bitten by the poisonous little fella is if you go and annoy it. Throwers can be much the same. Here are a few tips to prevent all the non-throwers out there from getting bitten! 1. You can just eat whatever you want right? You don’t need to diet. Being an elite athlete requires elite nutrition. The things we put into our systems effect how we perform. So the answer to this is “No!” If you look at the top of the tree in throwing world most of us are specimens of athleticism. We are not diabetic, heart attack candidates who have had a lightbulb moment whilst stuffing our faces at our local fast food restaurant and decided we might try and be the worlds best and throwing things. 2. Please don’t drop the weights! The main reason you don’t see us around public gyms is because the general public don’t know how to behave around us. We sweat, yell, listen to loud music and throw loads of weight around. So if you even see us smashing a weights session and you might think its a good idea to ask us to be quiet or “don’t drop the weights” tweet about it instead. You might get a better response because we aint listening! 3. Throwing training is mainly upper body weights right? This is 100% correct. All we do is bench and bicep curls. We don’t need our legs at all when we throw they are just there to hold up our massive torso! You could pretty...

Lu Xiajion (China) 180 kg at 77 kg bodyweight 4 kilos over world record...

As distance tests a horse’s strength, so does time reveal a person’s real ability (Chinese proverb). Hence Chinese lifters are encouraged to put the elements of close, fast, low, timing, and stable to the test by maxing out on snatch and/or CJ on Fridays in order to assess their ability and refine their future training. Last Friday was no different but still very special when Ma Strength friend Lu Xiaojun (77kg), during his own training camp in the mountains, snatched a massive 180kg (1 blue, 1 yellow, 4 greens, and one white)!!! This is 4kg above the current 77kg snatch record which he holds. So this Friday test your real ability, assess your results, and refine your training over time. And if you are interested in the cotton wrist wraps Lu used for this lift, they are now available here: http://www.chineseweightlifting.com/?p=1199 #mastrength #mastrengthyourstrength #chineseweightlifting #snatch #snatches #luxiaojun #77kg #strong #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting #olylifting #olifting #themountains #crossfit #crossfitweightlifting A video posted by Ma Strength (@mastrength) on Aug 6, 2015 at 6:13pm...

ICEMAN Jul30

ICEMAN

  Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to stay submerged in ice for one hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namibian Desert with no water, and proven—under a laboratory setting—that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will. Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible, but he’s not a freak of nature; he’s a master of meditation. To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach VICE hosts Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson how to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold. But when Matt and Daisy signed up for the training, they had no idea that the so-called Iceman was planning to lead them on a psychedelic journey across Europe that circled the chasm between science and spirituality.  ...

HOW TO COLD BREW COFFEE...

Cold brewed coffee is becoming more popular on the caffeinated beverage scene. Cold brewed coffee is NOT iced coffee. Traditionally coffee is brewed by pouring hot water over finely ground coffee beans. The heat speeds the brewing process, helping the coffee to release the flavor and caffeine from the beans, resulting in coffee as you know it. To make iced coffee, it is brewed at double strength to accommodate for the dilution by the ice cubes. The heat of the brewing process changes the chemical profile and creates the bitter, slightly acidic flavor that coffee is usually associated with. Cold brewed coffee, on the other hand, is less acidic and has a slightly sweet taste. It also contains more caffeine, as the concentration of beans to water is higher than its hot counterpart. To cold brew, you simply pour water over coarsely ground beans and let it steep at room temperature or in the refrigerator for eighteen to twenty-four hours. It is typically double-strained (to remove any stray grounds and sediment), and what you’re left with is a strong, smooth coffee concentrate. To drink, mix the concentrate with equal parts milk, cream or water and add a sweetener of your choice, if desired. Recommendations vary on the amount of coffee, but we’ve found a 1:4 coffee to water ratio works best for us when we’re using AfroBrewtality’s Black Cocaine, since it’s a dark, bold roast with medium, buttery undertones. If you like a lighter brew, use a 1:8 ratio when brewing your coffee, instead of just watering down the concentrate. You can use a French Press or a large mason jar (or other jar with lid of your choice). On the subject of sweeteners, a simple syrup (a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar, melted together...

Dave Castro on … Enhancing Performance...

In this Web exclusive, the director of CrossFit’s Training Department (and the man behind the Games) discusses the use of performance-enhancing drugs in CrossFit. – See more at: http://www.theboxmag.com/article/dave-castro-enhancing-performance-10146#sthash.sDZSYCKv.yshIB3pM.dpuf What is CrossFit doing regarding performance-enhancing drugs? We test a lot. We test everyone who qualifies for the Games from the Regionals. Every athlete at the Games is tested, including the teams, as soon as Regionals are over. And then we have a list of 10 to 20 people who we randomly pick to test throughout the whole year. Rich Froning and Jason Khalipa were on that list and last year they were tested probably 15 times. And it’s completely random. They’re called up or they’re told to be home at a certain time and someone drives out there and tests them. Right now, I don’t think anyone who’s winning is cheating. I guarantee you there are thousands of people who tried to get to the Regionals that are using steroids. Yeah, there are probably people at my skill level who are using steroids to do a little bit better and it doesn’t matter. There are people who are using steroids, trying to get stronger, trying to get an edge, who aren’t even qualifying for the Regionals. And then I imagine there are a few people at Regionals somewhere in the field who are using steroids who we’re not catching, but they’re not the ones qualifying. The ones who are good enough to get there are getting tested and are not using steroids. Are there any of them who are potentially working with companies like BALCO or some of these organizations that have designer drugs and stuff that we’re not able to test for yet? Potentially, but I don’t think we’re there yet. I think...

In a world where just about anyone can call themselves a “trainer,” Louie Simmons reigns as the “Godfather” of strength training. As a world-class powerlifter, Louie made a name for himself breaking numerous records and innovating strength through his Eastern-bloc training methodology. His “invite-only” gym in Columbus, Ohio (Westside Barbell) has has become the mecca for elite athletes looking to become the best in the world. But behind this 1,200 square-foot room where elite athletes undergo extraordinary physical transformations lies extreme training and non-stop action with Louie Simmons guiding them through it all.

Overcoming Injury Jun22

Overcoming Injury

I’ve watched my injury video hundreds of times at this point, and every single time, I find my mind trying to undo the events that happened January 26, 2014. I remember everything so clearly about that morning: my breakfast, the drive to the Expo, thinking that “even though my body was tired I’d give it my all” (remember this point for later), I remember seeing all the excited lifters and fans. I mostly remember being happy. Things didn’t work out in my favor that day, or really, for a lot of days after, but that’s part of life. It doesn’t “kick you when you are down,” or “pick on you.” Life happens. Period. What you do with those circumstances is entirely independent to you, your willingness to work through problems you face, and more so, a willingness to accept that in almost every scenario, the choices YOU make impact your life. I’m not going go on a tangent, but it’s one of those “if you hate your job, change it” kind of mentalities I’m talking about. Accepting an injury is just like that; you can’t undo it. You can wallow in self pity, or you can be proactive and research, work, and contact anyone and everyone possible to guide you in the steps to not only come back from the injury, but come back better. Now, before some jackass points out that not all injuries are able to be overcome, there are certainly steps to be taken that can ensure no matter how minor or traumatic the injury, you come back the best you possibly can. I’m going to list some ideas that have helped me, and also share some pitfalls. I hope you take the time to understand that I’m not perfect, and my...

Understanding Your Central Nervous System Jun20

Understanding Your Central Nervous System...

There are many factors that go into the equation regarding strength and conditioning, along with a physical therapy plan of care. The key to solving this equation is your central nervous system (CNS) and understanding your own unique recovery needs. Throughout this post, I will discuss some of the science behind CNS fatigue and overtraining, along with a number of factors behind understanding your own nervous system.   Many of the patients I treat as a physical therapist are involved in high intensity training like CrossFit or are firefighters and police men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day. These realms are so diverse. With increased diversity comes greater demand of the CNS since there is greater adaptation required. These individuals are similar in many ways including the constant change of job and environment related stressors like training programs, inconsistent sleep patterns, poor diet, and psychological challenges. However, each group still requires their own unique recovery needs.   These types of individuals are usually Type A or highly active most days of the week (either due to training schedule, job requirements, or both). What I try to convey to these patients is the understanding that unless you are properly recovered, training over and over again only slows down the whole strength gaining process. People come to me complaining, or boasting sometimes, about training heavy complex movement patterns day after day with some of these training sessions occurring less than 12 hours a part. They wonder why they are getting hurt or not making any progress. The answer resides within a complex interaction between our brain and body.   Many of us also forget that there are other stress influences in our lives other than exercise (money, kids, lack...

UNCOMMON & UNSTOPPABLE: CHANNELING THE FOUR ATTITUDES OF GRIT AND GRACE Jun16

UNCOMMON & UNSTOPPABLE: CHANNELING THE FOUR ATTITUDES OF GRIT AND GRACE...

This blog series has been about developing emotional resiliency—the internal firepower that instantly pops you back up to your feet no matter how many times you get knocked down. We have explored emotional awareness, how to detect and transmute negative emotional energy into a positive correlate, and discussed at length the four demons of anger, anxiety, arrogance and absence of self-respect. I would like to close out this series of articles by discussing the four positive attitudes of grit. Grit is like a metallurgical alloy combining emotional resiliency and emotional strength, the rarest of metals that U.S. Navy research identified as the defining quality between the .04% who are the last men standing in the graduation of a BUD/S class. If you have a burning desire live an uncommon life, the four attitudes of grit are mission critical. Burn these four traits into your character and you will find grace in the most trying of circumstances.   The Four Attitudes of Grit Self-esteem. This is the first attitude of grit. Self-esteem is the emotional state of feeling worthy and respected by others, the polar opposite of the fourth demon mentioned in the last post. As discussed, low self-esteem can originate from early traumatic experiences like childhood abandonment and similar volatile environments where your voice is not heard. Or it can be an unfortunate case of outright abuse. In any case this needs to be tackled head on and replaced with a healthy sense of self that will provide a foundation for internal resiliency. With this foundation secured, the inevitable blows of life will simply roll off of you because you will find your internal sense of worth unaffected. The stoic within comes to the battle, turning adversity into opportunity and challenges into learning. The...
