Gotta love a good Snatch and a Clean Jerk

 What an amazing weekend Darian and I had at the CrossFit Olympic Lifting Seminar.  The seminar was held at Real Fitness A CrossFit Gym in Naples, Fl. on Sat. & Sun March 26th & 27th.

Coach Burgener lead the seminar which was an amazing treat for me. I've watched dozens of his coaching videos and always admired his coaching skill and wealth of knowledge. This was a real treat.

Even though I've been performing and teaching the Olympic Lifts (Snatch & Clean N Jerk) for many years I was still able to learn from Coach Burgener and improve my own form and technique. That's the beautiful thing about exercise is that you never stop learning and practicing. You can always learn something new if you keep your mind open.

If anyone is interested in Olympic Lifting and has thought about wanting to coach it or just improve their own form and technique I highly recommend taking this course. You can go to www.crossfit.com and click on CrossFit Specialty Courses to register for this and many other incredible courses.

Oh yeah, I also learned the Junk Yard Warm-Up & the Burgener Warm-Up this weekend from Coach Burgener.

So get ready CrossFitters. We'll be starting this Monday morning.

You're going to LOVE IT!
And for those that don't. Well, we can always replace it with Burpees!

Have a great night and I'll see everyone in the gym,

Jeremy Barnett

Mike Burgener, owner of Mike's Gym (a CrossFit affiliate and USAW Regional Training Center), is a USAW Senior International Coach, former junior World team (1996-2004) and senior World team coach (2005), and strength and conditioning coach at Rancho Buena Vista High School in Vista, Calif.





































Should you decide to attend the CrossFit Olympic Lifting Seminar this is what you'll have to look forward to:

The Real Problem with Soy


The Real Problem with Soy

By Rocco Castellano







Soy has become the new bumper crop for the United States. Companies like Monsanto, Cargill and Soylife are getting very wealthy spewing the so-called health benefits of Soy and Soy based products on an unsuspecting and uninformed American public. Soy in being ingesting at an increasing rate and seems that there is no limit to how many processed products contain this supposed health food. The facts on the other hand tell a different story.
Some of the apparent “health” benefits of Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products:
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products are high in phytic acids which results in low absorption of certain minerals and vitamins.
  • The level of phytoestrogen is high in soy milk, which decreases the testesterone present in the male body. It also affects the production of sperms. Phytoestrogen also leads to early puberty and early developments of adolescents. These are a few of the soy milk dangers for men.
  • In females, soy milk can lead to abnormalities in the reproductive tract, which can give rise to infertility. These soy milk dangers for women should be taken care of,  or else, they can become intense.
  • Isoflavones present in Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products cause diseases like leukemiaand breast cancer.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products can also cause thyroid disorders like hypothyroidismand thyroid cancer. People who consume soy milk very often can suffer from autoimmune thyroid disease.
  • The presence of toxic aluminum in soy milk can also affect the nervous system and the kidneys in a negative way.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products can also contribute to endometrial cancer in women.
  • In some cases, it is also causes dizziness, diarrhea, nausea, colitis and may increase or decrease the pulse rate.
  • Very often, soy milk causes runny nose and nasal congestion.
  • Some of the Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based product dangers for children are learning disorders, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, etc. It can also cause pancreatic and growth related problems.
  • At times, the amount of manganese present in soy milk is large enough to cause damage to the cortex.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products can also develop allergies like congestion, coughing, sneezing, etc. in some people.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products also contributes to skin problems like sudden andsevere eczema, acne, blisters, canker sores, swelling and hives.
  • In severe cases, it can also cause a problem in swallowing and can also cause anaphylactic shock.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products can also affect the energy levels and sleep.
  • The protein enzyme inhibitors present in Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based products, block the action of trypsin and enzymes which are required for protein digestion.
  • In some cases, it can give rise to chronic pain. Mostly, people suffering from asthma are prone to these kind of disorders.
  • If soy milk is consumed in large amounts, it can lead to stomach and digestive problems.
  • Soy, Soy Milk and Soy based product estrogen is harmful for babies.
Any one of these “health” benefits would make me run away from Soy… which I did.

TEN WAYS TO BLUNT YOUR ATHLETIC POTENTIAL


TEN WAYS TO BLUNT YOUR ATHLETIC POTENTIAL

By Freddie Camacho Owner of CrossFit One World
  1. Not having goals, both short term and long term. A fitness regimen with no goals is like driving to a destination you have never been to before without a map or directions. Goals keep you on track. You seek out guidelines and information on how to achieve them. Make those goals!!!
  2. Avoiding your weaknesses. Why is it everyone and their mother shows up on the days we do some crazy workout, but when weightlifting days or running days come up, people suddenly don’t feel so well??? Weaknesses stem from a series of issues. Suck at an Olympic lift? It is probably tied into deficiencies in the strength and flexibility department. Can’t get through that whole 5k run? You need to eat better and build up your cardio/respiratory endurance. Attack your weaknesses and your strengths will improve.
  3. Poor nutrition. Food completely controls how your body functions throughout the day. It is the gasoline for your engine. An engine needs gas to run, and it runs better with good gas than it does with crappy gas. Start simple. Make changes in the quality of what you eat then fine tune it from there.
  4. Alcohol consumption. Alcohol is good for only one thing: getting buzzed. Unfortunately, getting buzzed causes a bunch of bad things to happen, mostly lack of control. You don’t sleep well (despite possibly even passing out). It dehydrates you. You tend to succumb to eating crap. You are damaging brain cells and your liver. But did I mention that alcohol is really good for getting buzzed??
  5. Lack of sleep. You can never get “too much” sleep. Our bodies are actually wired to go to sleep when it gets dark and wake up at the crack of dawn. Electricity has jacked up our internal clocks, so no matter who you are and how much you sleep, it is never enough. Sleep is a huge component in the body recovery system. Get more of it!!!
  6. Not taking proper rest/recovery time. Rest is different from sleep. You need to let the body rest from your training regimen. Take a rest day every few days. I would even recommend that every few months you take at least a week off from high intensity training. Your body needs time to heal, along with your brain. You will come back rip roaring ready to go both physically and mentally. Recovery simply means listening to your body. Pain is different from the discomfort of training. Pain needs to be respected. Pain takes time to heal. Turn your ego off and let your body heal up proper. The dumbest thing I ever heard anyone say was, “It hurts to train, but I have to workout.” (That was me by the way….)
  7. Poor hydration. Water is often an overlooked ingredient in a good training regimen. Water makes up about 60% of the human body. Lean muscle tissue is about 99% water. Bone is made up of about 22% water and even your skin contains water. There is not one system in the entire body that does not depend on water. You will be hard pressed to drink to much water in a day. Drink up!!!
  8. Lack of consistency. It’s not easy to stick with a workout program. You can get very positive results working out only two to three days a week if you really work hard and follow a solid nutrition plan. Start small…commit yourself to two days a week and build up to three. Once you start training three or more days a week, you will make leaps and bounds in reaching your athletic potential.
  9. Lack of a proper warm-up/cool down.  Sure, argue all you want that when the shit hits the fan in life, you don’t get the chance to warm up. Very true, but a training session is not life. You are attempting to improve your athletic ability. You can’t do jack if you get hurt. Warm up those muscles, joints and connective tissues by doing active stretching in full range of motion. Take the time to do some good static stretching when you are done working out. Flexibility will increase. Injuries will decrease. Your workout performance will improve dramatically.
  10. Not listening to your coach. An experienced coach knows what he is talking about. For the most part, I know I can judge a person’s athletic ability watching them perform a few simple tasks just within a warm-up. Why is it when I tell someone they should scale a movement or a rep count or the load, they don’t want to listen to me? The road to better athletic performance is a path easier traveled when you listen to an experienced coach. Trust me.
