Garage games


The Garage Games are coming to Long Island—Happauge to be exact!  The competition is held throughout the country.  The Battle For Long Island will be held August 25-26th.  There are divisions for Rx'd and Scaled events.  Check out this link to register and get more info.

From CrossFit A.C.T.:

If you are unfamiliar with the Garage Games, here is a brief description of the games:

The Event Series is popping up around the country! This is CrossFit competitions, hosted by YOU, partnered with US to make a series! We will have seven regions in 2012, Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, South Central, West/Mountain, Pacific Northwest, Southwest/California.

Each region will have a series of events from 4-40. The events are a mixture of MAJOR events and MINOR events. A Major event is scored higher than a Minor event, and each region will have a minimum number of MAJOR events that you must compete in, in order to be considered for top placement positions or for prizes.

These details will be released very soon for each region, but are unavailable now as the event schedule is yet to be finalized (nor will it be, as we add events throughout the year, though we will make plans based on best estimations).

Each region will be unique in their requirements, because the event schedule will be so unique for each region.



Testosterone Decline Isn't A Necessary Part Of Aging   "The study subjects were tested for blood testosterone at the beginning and at the end of a five-year study period. The passage of time evidently had very little effect on the sample population in the aggregate; on average, testosterone levels declined about one percent per year. But when the researchers examined test subjects in groups, they found greater declines among those who, at either end of the study, had been obese, depressed, or had quit smoking. What this suggests is that the aging process may have only a marginal role to play in the testosterone decline observed in older men."Brian Fung, The Atlantic


What Really Makes Us Fat   "The results were remarkable. Put most simply, the fewer carbohydrates consumed, the more energy these weight-reduced people expended. On the very low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, there was virtually no metabolic adaptation to the weight loss. These subjects expended, on average, only 100 fewer calories a day than they did at their full weights. Eight of the 21 subjects expended more than they did at their full weights — the opposite of the predicted metabolic compensation."Gary Taubes for The NY Times




For the Brazilian Jiujitsu fans and practitioners:  Color commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Joe Rogan received his black belt last week.  Joe's commentary on Jiujitsu, after he receives his black belt, is outstanding!
