Videos I Liked This Week

I learned about The Barkley 100 race, as I read about running I keep coming across more and more extreme and obscure races and this takes the latest cake. A 60 hour race based on the path of an escaped convict.

 

I love this video. Brooke calls it a bro session in the beginning and she’s so right, by the mid point of the lifts they’re acting like scratching, spitting, high fiving, heavy lifting bros and it’s great. It goes to show that being a good bro is gender neutral, everyone needs to bro out sometimes.

 

A classic Jeff this week

 

And I can’t think of any excuse as to why this is fitness related but there’s something important-feeling about this video about the skills gap and difference between beginners, spectators, and hardcore competitors. Maybe it relates to the Barkley 100 and how some races are for the true greats and other people just want to run short, flat, pleasant races with lululemon gift bags.

Mostly it’s just neat and I love a guided tour of a subculture I know nothing about.

Videos I Liked This Week

So I was doing a lot of research on muscle glycogen this week and here’s 3 good videos on it.

 

 

This third one is great for people starting to go low carb and are feeling negative effects. Ultimately it’s a question of how to have more energy by knowing which fuel sources I’m depleting and how to restock them.

Which brings us to creatine quite nicely as AMOF

 

And respecting rest, fighting the feeling that you should be training all the time and that everyone else is training super great whenever you’re not

 

Then some relief that the Crossfit guys launched their new update show and a philosophy video about the powerful and the sublime that all of us self-important millenials could use
