Winter Sports

Is anyone into winter sports? I snowshoe, XC ski (Nordic back country), downhill (alpine ski), snowboard, and skin (AT ski). I just got into skinning recently, and I have the hardest time staying warm on the way down. I find my body temp drops very quickly when my activity level decreases. I have to...

Cut muscle

Hi all, Last Friday, I encountered two stray dogs fighting and they ended up nearly on top of some children. I pulled the dogs away from the kids, but managed to get bit in the bicep really bad. They actually had to stitched the muscle together. I was told it was 80% torn. I am actually surprised at...

Thin Shaming

When I was fat, the only people to fat shame me were some members of my family. At the time I accepted it as simply their misguided concerns for my health. Now that I am thin (thinner then almost all of them now), they actually thin shame me. I also find a lot of thin shaming in society in general. ...

Re: Heard about the super banana?

Of course most deficiencies are because of low caloric intake and a very variety of foods in poor countries. This is because most of their land is being used to grow food to feed to animals for meat. If they can't afford food in their own country now, how is another food they can't afford going to h...

Re: That 'Protein' word again....help with some diet stuff

First thing I would suggest is to never compare yourself to anyone. They might not even be natural. You might be surprised at how many guys do some sort of enhancement drug. Also, genetics and hormones are a huge factor. The highest recommendation for protein for bodybuilders I have seen is 1.7 g/kg...

Re: Heart rate would not rise then suddenly went out of cont

I wouldn't trust those HRM's built into the machines. I have seen them very inaccurate. You probably should get something with a chest strap and also that records your HR over time. Then you will have a better idea what your HR is doing and can show a cardiologist or other health professional.

Re: Heart rate would not rise then suddenly went out of cont

The first thing I would do is try a different heart rate monitor. Did you manually take your heart rate during your exercise?

Re: Rest days?...

Hi Jeremy, We are inundated with the concept that our bodies constantly need food to grow and repair. However, our bodies actually maintain a large reserve of nutrients to recover and repair during fasting. Digestion and metabolization require a large amount of energy and biological resources, so wh...

Re: Rest days?...

I think a lot depends on the intensity of your training, your age, your diet, your genetics, etc. Some people's bodies recover faster than others. I know some very intense people that only work out every other day, because they need the rest in-between each workout. I know other people that workout ...

Re: Who takes Vega?

I just tried Vega again this morning. The first time I tried it, I developed so much gas, that I was literally doubled over in pain. This morning, I had a smoothie with it, and so far so good. I am skeptical of these products in general, so I will let you know if I notice anything in my performance ...

Re: Zoos

I detest zoos as well. However, I would have actually liked to see someone like you working there over others who don't care for the individual animals. You could have been a force from the inside to illicit change. Although, I think that would have made your job very difficult. Also, you would be a...

Re: Organic Dairy

Organic diary still has large amounts of hormones and antibiotics. That is what it does for the calve. It provides the mothers hormones and antibiotics while the calves endocrine and immune system are still developing. It has animal protein which is shown to leech calcium from the bones. Countries w...

Re: Insanity

Well into month two now. The works out are very hard, but so rewarding. I still take longer breaks that the video allows, but then again, I am older than most of the people in the video. I was hoping I could train up my max heart rate, but it seems to be stuck in the high 160's. My resting heart rat...

Re: Too much high intensity training could hurt you!

Another thing to consider is that atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia. Millions of people who have it don't even know they have it and aren't diagnosed. I would suspect the people most likely to recognize it are those people who engage in high intensity exercise. So, there may be the s...

Re: Too much high intensity training could hurt you!

In regards to the first study. it stated: "But the most active group, those who did daily strenuous physical activity, also had increased risk of dying of heart problems than people who were active only two to four times a week, according to the study." Heart attacks aren't caused from a b...
