Article: Stress and depression worsen childhood asthma.

“. . .The study involved 90 children with asthma, aged 7-17. Forty-five asthmatic children with symptoms of depression were compared with 45 asthmatic children without symptoms of depression. Both groups viewed scary, sad (death) and happy scenes from the movie E.T.: The Extraterrestrial.

All children wore electrodes to collect data on heart and respiratory function, which showed the level of activation and reactivity of the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions. The researchers assessed airway function before the movie, after the death scene and after the movie.

“The depressed group consistently showed greater parasympathetic activation along with decreased sympathetic activation in response to the emotional provocations – a pattern that would have a detrimental effect on the airways,” said Miller. . .”

    Saturday is always a fun day at the gym for me, I get to share my passion for the art of Muay-Thai, in my 9 o’clock class, by the way, I found another lady fighter, Shiva, she’s got what it takes to be a great fighter, Tami is so happy that finally she’s got another woman to train with.
    My 10 o’clock Crossfit is always full of people, it gets so crazy in there on Saturday, with so many athletes doing the WOD, it’s a mad house, but a lot of fun, today Stav, Adam Nick and Carry, killed the WOD, nice work
    And then I get to train people in the Oly lift, and it’s great to see the look on people’s faces when they figure out how to perform the movements, nice job to Paula today, you are on your way to a great clean form, just keep working on it.
    So if you’re not doing anything on a Saturday morning come on in and have fun with us.

    Four peeps braved for heat for today’s 3 o’clock class. We warmed up with three of the exercises from the final WOD of the CrossFit Games– squat cleans, burpees, and overhead lunges.

    After that, the WOD itself was a breeze. Miles & Jeff (the other Jeff B) knocked out the broad jumps with 3 jumps apiece, with Tristin & Dennis getting them with 4 jumps per. Miles finished in 4:01, just one second shy of Carry’s mark. The rest of the group was close behind, everyone finishing in less than six and a half minutes.

    After everyone cooled down from the WOD, we finished up with 30 double unders for time. Good times.

    Hey all, I am here in Rhode Island for officer development school. It is intense, a lot of marching, loooong power point presentations and only 15 min to eat in the mess hall. The PT has been light, but we had our PRT which is the physical test and I ran the 1.5 mile with a time of 8:59, did 99 situps in 2 min, and 76 push ups in 2 mins. I found a small gym on base which is always empty but has a sweet O-lifting setup with bumper plates, so I did “Grace” the first day I was here 4:23 which is a great improvement for me. Going to hit up a “Fran” tomorrow, see what happens. I miss you all and hope everyone is doing well!!

    Lt. Locke…great to hear from you! Glad you’re doing well and running laps around the others, which doesn’t surprise any of us. Who else but a DCF’er would be in the middle of boot camp, and still want to find time to do Grace, Fran, etc. It’s pretty sickening actually, well done brotha!

    BTW- Filthy Fifty on the CF main site tomorrow, just reading the list of exercises makes me tired!
