As far as the old guy on steroids...I guess each to his own. He didn't look that great to me. He'll probably end up like [URL="http://espn.go.com/classic/biography/s/Alzado_Lyle.html"]Lyle Alzado[/URL]...WFS... and that's too bad. IMHO if you have to use drugs to alter your appearance you must not be happy with who you are.

gee, I thought it was the way he felt not so much looks, and there I wouldn't blame him.

There are times when I just feel TERRIFIC! GREAT energy! not depressed! GREAT mood! nothing hurts! not anxious! love everybody and everything! EVERYTHING's positive! Hum and whistle! HAPPY as a clam! Unfortunately I only feel this way [B]12 hours a month![/B] I can actually FEEL the lift, when the hormones swing. rest of the time's a crapshoot - sure I can be "ok" deb a lot of the time, but then there's also anxious deb, empty can deb, crabby deb...

BUT if they could make my hormones stay at the 12 hour levels, I'd REALLY be tempted, I'd be happy with just a week. In fact I'd asked drs. about it when I was like 32, and they said - no. How about antidepressants? Classic! & no thanks.

Today - 01/20/10 - Rest Day

My two-cents on the old guy:

He doesn't sound like A CrossFitter at all to me. He works body parts on machines and does "cardio". While he may lift weights, he doesn't weightlift. And he has a heck of a racket going - On his website, you can schedule your "Executive Health Evaluation" for a mere $4,975! And you can order his "anti-aging supplement" for the bargain price of $4,000! The whole thing sounds like a crock to me.

I agree with Terry on "to each his own", but I personally oppose HRT. In the 1970's, I watched my mother nearly lose her mind while taking a combo of estrogen and librium (enthusiastically prescribed by her OB-GYN). I vowed then that I would have a drug-free menopause and I've never wavered from that position. Other than a few "hot moments", I've experienced very few negative symptoms over the years and I attribute that to CrossFit, a healthy diet and an attitude that embraces aging. Of course, some folks say I'm just "lucky". Maybe I am.

[QUOTE=Jim Cordes;726473]What do the guys, especially those in their 60's, think of this?

[url]http://www.latimes.com/features/health/la-he-jeffry-life18-2010jan18,0,187461.column[/url] (WSF)

This is the guy from the Cenegenics ad. He basically eats Zone and does Crossfit, although he doesn't name them by name. He also did human growth hormone, but stopped, but does take additional testosterone.

I'm 47 now, but mid-60's right around the corner. What do you guys in your mid-60's wish you would have done, but didn't, at 47?

Thanks so much! :thanx:

The Claw[/QUOTE]

There is so much wrong with all that it's hard to even start. I'm in NY and don't have a lot of time otherwise there's points in that article I'd like to highlight. Bottom line, He's juiced. Plain and simple. I can't see why this is not going to catch up with him. Ever since I saw those ads it was clear that it had to be HGH and other cocktails. I believe in a proper diet, exercise and maybe a short list of supplements. I might not hold to all of that myself, but it's the objective. $2,500/ month!!! Holy Cow!

WU, 1/4 run, 40 squats, 30 situps, 20 Push ups, 10 Pull ups 2x

Well the HRT for menopausal symptoms - now I keep reading studies that suggest symptoms are from TOO MUCH estrogen. I'll have to see once I get there what happens. No menses, no more 12 hrs before.... I could turn out to be someone totally different who knows!:D

Mon. 1/18: OFF/TRAVEL DAY (did some jumping pullups in the AM)

Tues. 1/19: OFF/TRAVEL DAY

WED. 1/20:

WARMUP: None, except for some stretching (stupid)

STRENGTH: Dead Lift 1-1-1-1-1
225, 275, 295, 305, 325-F
(Back felt really suspect when I engaged the weight at 325. So I decided to not try it. I am sure this is due to not properly warming up. I am officially a dumba$$)

WOD: "Angie"
For time:
100 pushups (all clean)
100 pullups (jumping)
100 squats
100 situps

24:56

(Did the squats first, then did 20 pullups, then alternated everything about 10-15 reps each.)

Yeah, he's definitely enjoying better living through chemistry. Doesn't he essentially espouse/promote taking HGH?
