Is there a tropical storm scale for the run?
36 minutes tabata burpees.
…or row sprints.
I’d rather run through a hurricane.
The scale for running 800m is 800 jumping jacks.
For any whiners who think a 2k row is long or looking to skip on the 800′s – check this out. World record concept 2, max maters in one hour, almost 19k. Most of us are miserable when the HR gets to 160 for more than a minute. My man held 190 plus for almost an hour and touched 201. insane. Who doesn’t love Kiwis?
K-rock – is this guy fit?
i think thats where it gets interesting. i dont think k-roc ever actually mentions fitness, only strength.
I may be crazy, but ill take rowing over running any time!!
Thank you Chad for planning such a great week!
Q: How many crossfit instructors does it take to run a competition?
A: 1 to write a WOD, 1 to judge, and 10 to make and sell T-Shirts.
Adam, notice also he is using the Dynamic machine, even harder than the regular ones we use.
Fit for what?
Cardio-respiratory fit, yes. Insanely so. To maintain that cardiac output, combat respiratory and metabolic acidosis while keeping focus, form and fortitude is a marvel of physiology. However, would he probably have just as astonishing physical strength/power? No. He is a gazelle, not a rhino in the evolution picture. Obviously his goal was marathon oriented, so it’s a different platform from my interests. But pretty cool non the less from a biological standpoint.
Correct Chad, ONLY high degrees of strength ( strong heart, high bone density, muscle mass, thick tendons) will carry us into old age with grace.
well played. Question: what would you rather be:
Also, what is your favorite marsupial?
Gorillas of course!
Factoid: My other nick name from long ago is “Vanilla Guerilla”..
Thylacinus cynocephalus is my favorite marsupial.
Yo Pearson, pay for domain name
I’ll tell you who carried grace into old age- my grandmothers.
On Dad’s side she lived beyond 95 with crippling scoliosis.She was the kindest woman I have ever known. She carried life without a complaint, planted flowers and raised 9 kids in a 2 bedroom house without a lot of help.
On Mom’s side, grandma is 97. She was driving into her 90s and living independent until a few years ago. She. Is full of wit and still. Delivers punch lines from the Old folks home.
Damn I Pad. Anyway, to put fitness with health into old age is fine. I’d personally put physical health behind mental. Lifting weights certainly does not equal longevity. Balanced life, stress, physical activity, sex, food, enjoyment….all of these and more.
To say strength equals longevity is a farce. Lyle Alzado. All pro wrestlers. Many footballers.
DM: Anecdotal evidence.
Much of what you expound upon is based on genetic gifts. Your grandparents lived and worked an active lifestyle, therefore contributing significantly to physical attributes of strength, happiness and good fortune. Unfortunately, our future mental status can never be predicted, only hoped for. Lyle Alzado was a cancer patient (genetic coding gone awry). Many pro wrestlers and footballers suffer repetitive “car crashes” essentially, to their body and abuse multiple categories of pharmacological agents. No amounts of strength can overcome decades of structural abuse to the body. Continually building on strength levels does leaps and bounds for creating longevity. Outside of the impossibly “unknown and unknowable” (disease, cancer, freak accidents, genetic abnormalities) everything is cause-effect related, of which we can manipulate.
According to some reports, Alzado was using natural growth hormone, harvested from human corpses, as opposed to synthetic growth hormones.
Sure, genetic gifts. I’ll not delve into Male vs. Female in my immediate situation. Stress=#1 factor, in my mind, for life and longevity. Physical fitness will certainly stave off The Deads ™ and sure, there are tons of studies that point to the benefit of hypertrophic gain into old age.
Now, the FACTS!
Walter, life long cigar smoker lived to 114…
Fred, lover of whiskey….
John, lover of greasy food, smoke and drink…
PS, Wrestling (and football) are fake.
Yes, anecdotal. The few statistically insignificant reports of those individuals pale in comparison to the huge data bank of actual science. They do occur, of course, just as other “freaks of nature” happen. Much more an exception than a rule. However, if we look at the whole, those cases are relatively non-existent. Wrestling may be fake, but the stress on the organism is not. Thats what counts. Stress is indeed fatalas you mentioned.
Yes, during Lyles time, the only source of HGH was from the dessicated pituitary gland of humans. Conclusivity of a link between HGH use and cancer has not been shown.
The use of various dessicated glands for human benefit has been in use for a very very long time. For example, Pig thyroid, marketed as (Armour Thyroid) has been used for hypothyroidism for well over 100 years; very successfully, even when compared to the new synthetic (levothyroxine) replacements.
