“The only people who need to make a point of avoiding soy lecithin are those with severe soy allergies or chemical sensitivities, and of course, those who notice that they personally react badly to it. And if you don’t have a soy allergy, almost all of the remaining concerns about soy lecithin (pesticides, solvents, and GMOs) can be completely eliminated by purchasing products that contain organic soy lecithin.
But for the vast majority of the population, even conventional soy lecithin isn’t worth worrying about one way or the other. If it’s just as easy for you to avoid it as it is to consume it, then do so. (For example, Enjoy Life is one popular brand of chocolate that is soy-free.) Ultimately, I think most people can just enjoy their occasional chocolate treat without worrying about whether it contains soy lecithin.“—Chris Kresser, Medicine For The 21st Century

Predator Conditioning Chris Shugart of TNation.com describes a conditioning program that seems like it could have been inspired by CrossFit. Go figure. The exercises he describes have been around before CrossFit, but it was CrossFit that made them popular to do under the same roof, in the same workout. Shugart states that if one cannot do their conditioning work in the morning, in a fasted state then the next best thing is to do right after strength training.
Don’t we know a training methodology that does strength training followed by conditioning work?
Oh and in case if you haven’t had the opportunity to train with them yet, we have Battle Ropes, a Prowler, a pulling sled, Atlas Stones, heavy sandbags, Tires (for flipping), sledge hammers (for hitting tires) and a harness for pulling cars.—George
