    And JJ is a punk. 8, goddamn it.

    At least Craig wasn’t there to see 🙂

    I was feeling frisky. I thought I was good for 7, but that eighth one was right there.

    Then I did another run with the sand bag.

    145lbs in bag – 800m, 8:40.

    Originally I was going to see how far I could get in 10 minutes, but my back started to hurt in a bad way so I decided to throw in the towel at the 1/2 mile mark.

    Energy Bars:

    70% carbs seems high to me, and that is the bar that did the best? I would hate to know what the other bars are.

    When I reach for an energy bar (I try not to), I look for a few things on the label:

    Preferable 40% carb, 30% prot, 30% fat minimum. Even better if I can get one with more protein and fat and less carbs.

    No Soy.

    No corn syrup and no sugar.

    About the Energy Bar link
    Did I miss something? I did not see any other energy bars listed. I was expecting a list of energy bars with their corresponding energy value. The only name I saw was Clif Bars. I am sure Clif Bars are adequate, but this study sounded like it was funded by Clif Bars. Sounded like a big Clif Bars Advertisment. I don’t even know if they tested the energy bars that I like to eat.

    8 muscle-ups J.J. you are a Frankenfitter, one day, one day

    Burton, the article was in reference to a conversation we had on Tuesday night. We discussed different “Energy” bars (although I think the term “meal replacement” bars is better).

    What type of MR bars do you reach for when you need a quick healthy snack?

    First set of ring dips okay. Only a couple of ring dips after, the rest jumping. Locked them all out but sort of fell out of them at the end instead of lowering to bottom. SDHP’s with 75 lbs, much easier than the ring dips. Might have done a little better if I hadn’t done the Tabata Airdyne workout in the am along with KB swings and knees to elbows. Really fried, had a hard time getting to sleep.

    Forgot to mention: great watching JJ extend his DCF muscle-up record to eight! Good form too, made it look easy.

    “Most sports nutritionists agree that about 70 percent of a person’s caloric intake should come from carbohydrates,” he said.

    For extended cardiovascular exercise, I think that is a fair ratio to fuel performance and aid with glycogen replacement (recovery).

    For life, it is way off base.
