CrossFit, neuroscience, surviving the zombie apocalypse: Is your workout a fraud?

Excerpted from "Learning to Breathe Fire" “Every functional exercise contains an essential bit of human capacity.” – Greg GlassmanGreg Glassman, the guy who invented CrossFit, was a gymnast who’d gone feral. He’d grown up in the San Fernando Valley, then a cradle of world-class gymnasts.His high school sent a 16-year-old, Steve Hug, to the 1968 Olympics. What made the official programs so good – what created a deep and brilliant pool of gymnasts for coaches to draw on – was a bunch of kids teaching themselves and competing against each other. In the days before draconian consumer protection codes and liability scares, there were stainless steel high bars, parallel bars, and rings in most of the Valley’s public parks. Kids would roam like packs of wild dogs from park to park, to conduct informal workshops and challenges.Intensity was the foundational element of CrossFit. This came from gymnastics. Gymnastics demands absolute physical commitment in the moment of effort. You have to stick the landing. There is no half vault. Part of what makes CrossFit distinctive as a fitness movement is this idea that life, the universe, could swerve in unexpected ways and make daunting physical demands. The CrossFit mantra of “constantly varied functional movement executed at high intensity” is about mental and physical preparedness to move quickly, do work, bear weight – to be a clutch player in the game of life. Every CrossFitter secretly believes that the people in...

Germany's quality is 'oppressive' - Herzog

EXCLUSIVE: The USA assistant believes the style and cohesion of the squad makes the team a formidable force and says there is little wonder to see interest in Toni Kroos Former Austria attacker Andreas Herzog says Germany boast an "oppressive" level of quality thanks to the way they have combined the very best of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Die Mannschaft have impressed with their displays in the tournament so far, most notably the 4-0 victory over Portugal in their opening game and the stunning 7-1 demolition of Brazil in the semi-finals. Herzog has been impressed by how well Germany have controlled the matches they have played in, believing that the number of players from Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich has helped to add cohesion to the style within the squad. "They have up to seven players from Bayern which leads to a team who very well understands each other," the former Bayern man, now assistant coach with USA, told Goal. "It is more like a club team. And they have the perfect age. Almost no very young players, and everybody already has lots of experience and has been successful in the Champions League. "Joachim Low managed to merge the style of Bayern and Dortmund. If they can put that on the pitch, their quality is oppressive. "They don't always play magical football, this depends on the opponent. Against well-organised and aggressive teams like Algeria or France they were in trouble. Brazil, on the other hand, could not cope with the huge pressure and Ge...

Don't give mobile phones to kids: urges Rohit Roy

Mumbai, July 13 : Mobile phones may have become an integral part of people’s life, but the facility comes with hazards, says actor Rohit Roy. He requests parents to keep children away from the device and use it with caution. The actor, known for his TV shows like “Swabhimaan” and movie stint in “Shootout At Lokhandwala”, took to Twitter to talk about the cons of mobile phones. He also wrote that his posts shouldn’t be interpreted as “preaching” rather they should be treated as “information”.  “Cell phones are dangerous in a way that u don’t realise… It’s a debilitating device which will affect ur skin n nervous system if used excessively or incorrectly. Keep it away from u while sleeping,” wrote the actor who himself is a parent. “Hold it far from ur ear while talking… At least half an inch. Better still use a headset, not bluetooth but corded one… “And definitely don’t give ur kids the phone… Not even to play… They are most susceptible to radio waves as their skins are thinner,” he said in his posts. The actor, who directed a film called “Rice Plate”, feels that speaking on mobiles has become such a habit that landlines are “almost extinct in homes”. “Please, please take a few simple precautions as it’ll help u stay away from the ill effectsȂ...

6 ways climate change is ruining summer for everyone

Those of us living in North America made it through a confusing winter, during which some people had a hard time believing that global warming could actually lead to more snow. (Although it’s true. Really!) Now that it’s officially summertime, things get a lot simpler: The world is undergoing global warming. Ergo, it’s going to get warmer.A lot warmer, even — to the point that Americans could start seeing from 45 to 96 days over 95 degrees Fahrenheit, two to three times as many as we experience now, by the end of the century. Climate change, the IPCC predicts, “is likely to be accompanied by an increase in the frequency and intensity of heat waves” (prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather) that, coupled with a concurrent rise in humidity, will pose a major health risk.But we don’t only have to trust scientific modeling to know that summers are getting hotter: A trend of increasing high-humidity heat waves has already been documented over the past several decades. According to the National Climate Assessment, heat waves in the U.S. are already occurring at triple the historical average. Look back at the data, and it’s clear that summer temperatures have been rising since the 1970s, for a total average gain of 2 degrees Fahrenheit.Can’t stand the heat? Well, too bad, because sweating it out in hotter temperatures is only the beginning of what a warmer planet will mean. Below, six other ways that climate change will — and has already begun to â€...
