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...

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.  ...

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...

Stone Cold Stunner On Stage During Graduation Jun16

Stone Cold Stunner On Stage During Graduation...

Graduation ceremonies can be brutal, especially during the summer months in Florida. You’re sweating your ass off in a shirt and tie underneath your oversized gown, listening to an infinite list of names of people that have zero effect on your existence being called until you eventually have the pleasure to go up on stage, shake the hand of the college dean you’ve never met, and receive an empty leather folder. Then you park your ass back into your seat, and the list of irrelevant classmates continues. Occasionally you’ll get some kids who try to spice things up, failing more often than not. These graduates at the University of Miami, however, delivered. “BAW GAWD, STONE COLD STUNNER!” Got to love when someone sticks with the classics. You kids can keep your RKO, I’ll take the Stunner every day of the week. If you couldn’t get down with WWF and the “Attitude Era,” you didn’t have a childhood. Nearly perfect execution by these two, but the guy on the receiving end needs to sell it better. Clean that up and throw in a few beer smashes and this would have been an all-time graduation power move. The dean never saw it coming....

PRIVATE RESERVE SINGLE ESTATE LIGHT ROAST COFFEE...

PRIVATE RESERVE SINGLE ESTATE LIGHT ROAST COFFEE FLAVOR Onnit Colombian Amber is a light roast with mellow acidity and a strong caramel sweetness. It has a medium body with a smooth, complex taste containing citrus notes of orange, grapefruit, and lemongrass, with a very clean finish. SOURCE Introducing Single Estate Light roast coffee made exclusively for Onnit by Caveman Coffee Co. After working closely with the master roasters at Caveman Coffee Co, we are proud to present this first edition private reserve we call Colombian Amber. Finding coffee that’s from a single source is great. Our unblended coffee beans can not only back to their geographic region in Colombia, but the individual farmer and family-operated farm responsible for growing them. In other words, our beans are even better than single source, they’re Single Estate. The beans are hand-picked only when they are ripe, then washed and dried to ensure the highest quality and purity.   OUR PARTNER We partnered with Caveman Coffee to create this signature roast. Our Colombian Amber coffee uses beans that come from a single estate in Columbia. We’re a part of this world and believe in sustainable farming practices, both to respect and protect the environment. Likewise, our coffee is raised and harvested employing ethical labor practices. We are proudly certified by both The Rainforest Alliance andThe UTZ. After being picked and cleaned, our beans are sent to the high altitude and dry climate of New Mexico. With a little help from the “Dean of Beans” Keith Jardine, Caveman’s award-winning Master Roaster perfectly roasts the beans, ensuring they never burn. Each batch is then quickly shipped to provide the freshest product possible.   CONTENTS AND PURITY Caffeine: 1.12% Chlorogenic Acid: 2.34% Purity: This coffee has been tested to be below...

Max Adrenal Review

Sometimes we are all our own worst enemy… we know how to make the right choices for our health, performance, etc but let other things get in the way.    As many of you know, I spend most of my day working for a small biotech company in New Hampshire, trying to develop drugs for cancer and autoimmunity.  I also coach multiple Crossfit classes a week, consult people nutritionally for Crossfit, marathons, weight loss, life as a Navy Seal, etc.  Needless to say it’s a lot but no more than most people deal with in reality.  We’re all busy and all have stress in our lives.  Where I become my own worst enemy is when I try to train like a freaking pro-athlete on top of all the other work.  I can handle it for a while but the overall stress has run me down a couple times in the past to the point of needing a complete break from training… I’ve tried some supplements in the past to extend how far I can push.  BCAA’s and creatine were a big help.  Adding in dense starchy foods was another step in the right direction.  Overall, I still wasn’t feeling quite right though, so I started to play with adaptogens, which are supplements that are supposed to help correct hormonal imbalances related to stress.  Ultimately I decided to try a new supplement from Dynamic Nutrition called Max Adrenal.  The purpose of Max Adrenal is to help the body maintain the appropriate response to exercise by helping the body to produce the correct hormonal response to exercise.  In a person who has pushed the gas pedal too hard for too long, the body sometimes stops making the appropriate amounts of cortisol, DHEA, testosterone, etc…  Max Adrenal’s goal...

Stop Doing Box Jumps Like A Jackass May22

Stop Doing Box Jumps Like A Jackass...

Here’s what you need to know… Box jumps potentiate the nervous system for gains in strength and size, assuming you do them correctly. If you’re not getting full hip extension, you’re wasting your time. Those young geeks you see doing 50-inch box jumps just have fantastic hip flexibility rather than great jumping ability and explosive power. Quality is more important than quantity. Maximize the hip extension and land with sound technique. Perform box jumps as a potentiating exercise before you lift, not as a conditioning tool. Get Faster, Get Stronger No one cares how strong you are if the speed at which you produce force is best described as glacial. You need speed to bring your strength to new levels and the quickest way to get explosive is with the box jump. Jumps are an awesome display of power, athleticism, and relative strength with directly applicable qualities to nearly every sport. And yes, they’ll get you more jacked, too. The problem is, they’re often over-prescribed and performed with atrocious form. Let’s fix that. Let’s examine the muscle and strength building benefits of box jumps, along with how to do them properly, and how to program them into your workouts for rapid gains in explosive power. The Benefits of Box Jumps Most of the impressive box jumps you see aren’t what they appear. That 14-year-old kid hitting a 50 inch-box jump is impressive, but it’s a product of a pretty good jump and fantastic hip mobility rather than pure explosive power. Related:  How to Train for Power Even worse than some of these phony-baloney jumps, people set themselves up for bloody shins, dangerous wipeouts, and faulty landing mechanics due to inappropriate prescriptions of jumps. Like every exercise, box jumps are a tool that must be...

8-Step Daily Routine for Hip Mobility May21

8-Step Daily Routine for Hip Mobility...

What you’re getting yourself into: 1300 words (4-6 minutes read time), plus a 6-minute video tutorial Key points ahead: Tight hips make everyday activities more difficult. Trying to force a stretch will just lead to more pain and stiffness. Don’t do it. Practicing these 8 exercises consistently now will mean less of a need to practice them later. Our hips and the muscles that surround them are the base for most of our movement. They propel us in walking and going up stairs, as well as supporting us in kneeling and squatting. And in pretty much all sporting activities, good hip strength and flexibility is one of the keys to good performance. Unfortunately, the necessities of daily life can make our hips less functional than we’d like. Sitting most of the day stiffens the hips and can make them weaker from prolonged positioning. This is not ideal for us, and not ideal for the workhorses of our body. It’s important to spend some time each day remedying the issues many of us have with tight, dysfunctional hips, which is why I created the stretching sequence I’ll describe below. The hips are an area that need a lot of consistent exercise to keep mobile and healthy. The following series of 8 stretching exercises hit the major muscles that are tight on most people. I originally designed this sequence a few years ago as a warm-up for myself before working on more strenuous lower body exercise and stretching, but I soon realized it’s a great mobility practice on its own and can help people to improve restrictions efficiently. Hip Flexibility Sequence for Lower Body Freedom of Movement In this video, Ryan will demonstrate each of the 8 stretches involved in this sequence. Below, I’ll describe each exercise in detail. The key to practicing...

Building a Tiger starts in weight room May21

Building a Tiger starts in weight room...

LSU is known for having one of the country’s top strength and conditioning programs, and the man behind it all is Tommy Moffitt. When Nick Saban arrived in Baton Rouge back in 2000, Moffitt was brought in to lead the Tigers’ charge in the weight room. Moffitt had been part of national championship teams at Miami and Tennessee. He was tasked with helping to turn around a Tiger program that had suffered through eight losing seasons over an 11-year span. Moffitt is entering his 15th season with the Tigers, and over that span he has been a part of the most successful run in school history that includes a pair of national championships. The recipe for success is hard work and dedication during the off-season. “It is a gameday,” LSU coach Les Miles told Chad Sabadie from Fox8 New Orleans. “You walk into that weight room. Don’t walk in there to hang around. Don’t walk in there to hide. You walk in there to compete.” Intense is one of the best ways to describe Moffitt in how he approaches his job, one that he truly loves. “I feel like I have the best job in the world because of how hard and how committed our guys are to working day-to-day,” Moffitt said. “They give us themselves unconditionally, and it’s an amazing thing to watch on a day-to-day basis.” “You know they come here as boys, really,” Moffitt added. “They’re 18, 19, 17-years old, but they all leave as men, and not just physically stronger but mentally and emotionally stronger too, and that’s the most rewarding thing about what I do.” And his players have bought into it in a big way. “He was tough-nosed, he was hard on me, but now to fast forward, we’re pushing each other,” Vadal Alexander said....

Consciousness Technology & Plant Medicine Journey FAQ May21

Consciousness Technology & Plant Medicine Journey FAQ...

Utilizing the world’s ancient and modern technology to help figure things out, overcome fear, and elevate consciousness continues to be invaluable in my life. I have spent over 16 years exploring these methodologies, and finally feel comfortable sharing the specifics of my discoveries. While some of these technologies such as floatation, holotropic breathing, meditation, and yoga should be integrated into daily life and carry little to no caveat, medicine plant journeys have great potential only when mixed with the right intention, and the proper timing. They are not a panacea and everyone’s actual experience will be wildly different. Because of this reason, I am not recommending any medicine or location for you, personally. You have to trust your own voice of wisdom and calling to the task. There are many places that offer work with plant medicine, and while some of them are doing great work, others are not carrying the same integrity and can be dangerous. Below is the information I have to the best of my knowledge.  Remember, I cannot endorse or recommend anything specific for YOU.  These are the following centers I trust for myself. Huachuma (San Pedro) Huachuma is an inherently pleasant but very challenging medicine. The primary active ingredient is mescaline, but in the Huachuma preparation the whole plant is used in accordance with an ancient recipe from Chavin. It’s specialty as a teacher lies in spiritual growth through immediate experience, adherence with one’s mission, and healing psychological mal-alignments. For the detailed accounting of my personal experience with Huachuma, click here. There is only one place left in the world I am aware of that follows the ancient Chavin way of the medicine: The Spiritquest Sanctuary.

The Sport Psychology of Goal Setting May20

The Sport Psychology of Goal Setting...

http://www.jtsstrength.com/articles/2015/05/06/the-sport-psychology-of-goal-setting/   You’ve gotta set goals and achieve them to become the best athlete you can be. Duh, everyone knows that. And you know what? It’s completely true. Goal-setting is an absolutely indispensable part of the sport training process. Goals can keep you both grounded and focused at the same time, which is one hell of a combo for enhancing your dedication to training and competing. The formal study of sport psychology reveals that there are several different classes or types of goals (three, in fact). And what’s even more interesting is that these three different goal types are not all equally powerful in their effect on sport performance. In fact, they are quite unequal, with one being dominant, the other being important but less so, and the last being a relatively minor detail. By taking a look at these three different goal types and examining their relative effects, we can make sure we’re setting and achieving the right types of goals for the best outcome in our sport performance, no matter which sport it is. Because of our (the authors’) own personal background, we’ll use mostly examples from strength and combat sports, but these principles apply to absolutely all sports and all forms of competition. THE THREE TYPES OF GOALS: In sport psychology, there are three types of goals: – Process Goals – Performance Goals – Outcome Goals Luckily, their definitions are quite simple and straightforward: PROCESS GOALS: These are the goals of executing the actual training process it takes to improve your performance in sport. Here are some examples: – Making it to the basketball court at least 5 times per week before a citywide 3 on 3 tournament – Taking all of your supplements without missing any for a bodybuilding show...
