Re: physiology of energy pathways and implications

I REALLY encourage anyone who just skimmed this material over to go back and try to understand it. About fifteen different things clicked into place when I finally understood it, including a ton of training and nutrition ideas that were just floating in a contextless void before.

I'm pretty sure he's in mid-move so that his left leg is the one extended and his right leg is swinging in front, pointed directly at us so that we are seeing the bottom of his right foot as a horizontal white blur just to the lower left of his hip. Either that or he's a unidexter...

There's a lot there, all right; worth rereading a few times. Very interesting, even if I don't completely get it yet.

For instance, the idea of glycogen depletion being beneficial for fat loss (used in a number of diets) makes sense only if you understand the multiple fuel sources to the oxidative system.

Um, you're not exactly the one who should be busting on people's avatars.

Comments like that make reading an over-view of biochemistry much more enjoyable

Re: physiology of energy pathways and implications

So...what do these implications mean for something like CrossFit Endurance? Because from what I've heard it's done the same thing for distance running that CrossFit did for overall fitness.

Re: physiology of energy pathways and implications

Interesting coverage of the energetic systems, although I’m not sure why you decided to conclude a discussion of energetic pathways with the suggestion that people need to get it together and figure out why they’re even bothering to do CF.

And in conclusion.. or something

I am not criticizing the program because I know it has helped a lot of people and believe it will continue to do so; however, I would just like you to ask yourself what exactly are you training for? Like Brandon said in the above thread.. do you really need the fitness that CF gives?
If there is anyone out there CF’ing for three days on/one day off who hasn’t ever considered their goals and who does it on a mere whim, I applaud them openly for having that kind of tenacity with absolutely no purpose or goals in mind.

As a final post, it was good information laced with a slightly condescending tone and concluded with a veiled critique of CF, its ignorant posters, and the blind sheep who do it. Stay classy
