Hello Andrew, Robb Wolff, Dr. Barry Sears (Zone), Dr. James Chestnut (wellness chiropractor) and others, all supply convincing evidence that belly fat in men is an insulin resistance issue. Robb went even further and said if sleep is disrupted 3 nights in row, blood work will look diabetic - resulting in insulin imbalance and belly fat in men (common in shift workers, law enforcement, etc..) Insulin resistance takes time to change. Robb gave an example of an obese female who came into their gym with a long history of habituating her insulin response (high carb/junk food diet). It took 3 YEARS of clean diet and crossfit before her metabolism shifted enough for her fat to finally start coming off. The good news is, insulin resistance can be improved by vigorous exercise and weight lifting. Hang in there, it will come (voice of experience 335 lbs. -> 260 lbs. and still working it)

Pleased with the results and the OHS's. First set 15 then 5, second set also broken up but third set straight through. The A-Team was in the house at 6 am so I was really pushing! Link this this morning's whiteboard (WFS): [url]http://www.flickr.com/photos/93561498@N00/7203105518/[/url]

Two well programmed WOD's in a row by Christina.

5/15

Warmup: 50 single unders; row 500m; plate halos; back extensions, abmat sit-ups, pushups X 2 sets X10 reps

Workout: (BrandX puppies scaling)
Run 400 m
28 DB swings (20#)
28 pulldowns (65#)
28 DB C&J (20#)
28 pulldowns (65#)
run 400m
9:38

Cash out: Clean and jerk 45, 65, 85# X 5
Front squats 45, 45# X5

Can't tell you how good it felt to do an advertised WOD, even though it was heavily scaled. The challenge will be staying patient so as not to re-injure the shoulder while regaining the strength.

Great work Guys!!

Claw - Nice job on the Marathon. You're not the only CrossFitter who's mentioned doing a Marathon with little more than CrossFit (and maybe CrossFit Endurance) training & Crushing it!!

Alden - Hope your shoulders are good!

1st WOD after a party weekend: Fare well party for my son starting Army Basic & 29th Wedding Anniversary!!

[B]WU:[/B]
Partners:
A does Air Squats while B does Plank Walks (~80ft)
then everyone does Samson Stretch walks (~40ft)
10 In and outs
10 Scap pulls
Samson Stretch walks (~40ft)

2 rounds:
10 single leg "straight leg" Dead Lifts (1 Pood KB) on each leg on top of a box.[I] A challenge for balancing & was one of the last things I tried in PT for a pulled Hamstring. (couldn't even do .5 Pood!)[/I]

[B]WOD:[/B]
5 Rounds for time of:
12 Toes-to-bar
200m Row
12 Med Ball Cleans (20# Men / 14# Women)

21:56

[I]Tougher WOD than it seemed. Med Ball cleans were tough due to form. Spent more time on form. Rows were the "rest". One of the slower times, but I did better than those who didn't show up at all!! :D[/I]

BTW, Our Regionals Team, The Afterburners, placed 11th in the East Central Regionals. We Crushed the competition in event 4! Pretty Cool!
