Thanks guys. No one here in the rocking chair yet.

Worked with my head coach and devised a training schedule to blend some strength trainging with the crossfit: 3 days strenth and two days WOD w. group.

Dusted off my old Wendler cycles:

Deadlift day: 3X5 @ 290, 345, 390
5X5 Goodmornings @ 95.
3X 10 box step up w. 45# in each hand
3X10 combo of GHD+situps.

It's officially a bad flu season, though fortunately, it is not a high fatality flu. I've never had a flu shot, don't believe in them and have not had the flu in 13 years, Maybe I'm due, but I'm hoping not. Taking my C, D, minerals and fish oil.

BTW, all, I started carb backloading the last few days. Will let you know how it works for me. I have been Paleo or semi-Paleo for a few years now, got very lean this past summer through fairly strict Paleo. Trying the backloading as it makes some sense with the anthropological grounding of Paleo—longer periods of calorie/carb restriction, punctuated by brief periods of gorging immediately following strenuous physical activity.

The way "backloading" works is you limit your carbs to like 30-50 grams a day on days when you're not working out and on workout days—up to the point you workout. Then post workout, on workout days, eat whatever the heck you want, including pizza, cake, corn chips, ice cream what have you. You gorge and get a huge insulin response for immediately following and a number of hours after working out—ostensibly pushing lots of nutriients into the muscle cells for growth/strength. But only then. So you don't get a huge insulin response any other time when you might store fat.

Some guys swear by it and it does make sense intuitively. Also nice to be able to pig out a few times a week with impunity. Going to try to still adhere somewhat to Paleo in terms of the types of food I eat—especially on the carb-restricted days. Will let you know my progress.
