Nike Metcon Flyknit 3 Cross Training Shoe (BRAND NEW FOR 2019)

Nike has just released their latest refinement to the Metcon Flyknit line. Let’s talk about the Nike Metcon Flyknit 3.

How does the Nike Metcon Flyknit 3 stack up versus the very popular Nike Metcon 4? Which is the right CrossFit training shoe for you?

The Nike Metcon line are intended to be cross training shoes – and more specifically these are CrossFit training shoes (even if they aren’t legally allowed to brand them as such.)

And as you know that means lifting heavy weights – both of the Olympic and powerlifting variety, running, jumping, rope climbs, and more.

These shoes have all the great features of the Nike Metcon line – plus FlyKnit material.

They’ve added synthetic overlays in high-wear areas such as the toe and lateral side to enhance durability.

It has also borrowed a bit from the Nike Free X Metcon. It’s got an even more bootie-like fit and appeal as compared to it’s predecessor.

Study shows low carb diets increase calorie burn (LATEST RESEARCH 2018)

A new study published in the medical journal The BMJ shows that low carbohydrate diets cause people to burn more calories as compared to medium and high carb diets.[1]

The study showed that those who eat low carb diets may burn an extra 230 or more calories per day.

The purpose of this study was to test the Carbohydrate-Insulin Model.

Diet Concept, Healthy Lifestyle, Low Calorie Food, Low Carb Diet

This model theorizes that the increase of the hormone insulin after eating carbohydrates predisposes the body to store body fat rather than using the nutrients for energy.

Many foods high in carbohydrates such as simple sugars are known to greatly increase insulin levels. The impact these foods have on insulin can be estimated using the glycemic index and glycemic loads.

Foods with a high glycemic load will increase insulin more compared to low glycemic load foods.

Study Predicts Minimal Life Expectancy Improvements for US


Study Predicts Minimal Life Expectancy Improvements for US

A new study published in the medical journal The Lancet shows that US life expectancies will improve minimally between now and the year 2040.[1]

The average life expectancy of a citizen of the US was 78.7 years in the year 2016.

In the year 2040, the average life span is expected to be only 79.8 years, for a meager 1.1 year increase.

This improvement is especially small compared to other Western nations.

In contrast, life expectancy improvements globally will average a gain of 4.4 years in the same time frame.

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that people with the highest levels of aerobic fitness have the least chance of death.

The study shows that lacking aerobic fitness is greater than or equal to traditional health risk factors such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and smoking.

In the study over 120,000 participants were tested for cardiorespiratory (aerobic) fitness on a treadmill. This is a significant improvement over other studies that have used self-reported exercise activity.

The bottom line that the participants who performed highest on the treadmill test, tended to have the least chance of death

The GORUCK GR1 Backpack for Business Travel

The GORUCK GR1 backpack is not just for “rucking” – it’s a great bag for laptops and business travel.

GORUCK is a company that makes several products targeted to “rucking” – which is walking or hiking for distance with a loaded backpack.

The GORUCK GR1 backpack is their main product. It’s a tough, versatile, and good looking backpack that is considered a premium product.

Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces (SF) physical training, so you’d expect this backpack to be too “tactical” for Every Day Carry (EDC), but that’s actually not the case.

One of the things I like about my GORUCK GR1 backpack is just how versatile it is – and it fits into nearly any setting – whether on the ruck march, in the field, or in the meeting room – or any other business setting.

Let’s talk here today about using the GORUCK GR1 for business travel.

Functional Trainer (Cable Machine) Reviews (BEST EQUIPMENT 2018)


Functional Trainer (Cable Machine) Reviews (BEST EQUIPMENT 2018)

Let’s talk about functional trainers, also called cable machines.

What’s a functional trainer? It’s a cable machine that uses two independent weight stacks, pulleys, and cables (with handles) to provide unique workout benefits.

The pulleys and cable handles are height adjustable – and this lets you work from any angle.

The weight stack is normally selectorized, such that you can choose the desired weight quickly and easily by inserting a pin underneath the weight load.

Is the cable machine superior to free weights such as the barbell, dumbbell, and kettlebell?
