IKSC Weekly Link Blast: August 15, 2019

IKSC Weekly Link Blast: August 15, 2019

Video of the week. This gives a good perspective on the getup, but really, just getting up and down off the floor is good no matter how you do it.

Another study, a randomized controlled trial (not just a food questionnaire), demonstrating that high protein and low carbs helps fight diabetes. Why do none of the restaurants and food companies that claim to donate to causes to fight children’s diabetes mention this? This is not new information, just another study confirming what we already know.

Carnitine for strength! FYI: Beef has a ton of it.

Mark Sisson calls these “microworkouts.” This is something I’ve done my whole life, and are the basis for most of the exercise challenges IKSC has encouraged for many years now. I first started doing “microworkouts” well over 25 years ago on different jobs I’ve had and have always done this in some form or another. It is good for your brain, too.

This article gives a good breakdown of what fats are good and which ones aren’t. The ones that are most commonly found in snacks are soybean oil, canola oil, and peanut oil. But, any kind of processed seed oil is basically a poison and damages every cell in your body, right down to the mitochondria.

Here’s an interesting article (more just a testimonial) that I saw among the headlines today. Something to know is that PCOS is caused by insulin resistance and high blood sugar. Taking long stretches between meals is one way help with insulin sensitivity, but eating a very low carb and higher protein diet is more than likely going to be the best strategy.

Muscles sore from training (Delayed Onset Muscle Sorenesss)? Sorry, there is no “gold standard” way to prevent it. Sometimes you just have to tough it out. Note: More exercise is apparently effective (my advice for as long as I can remember).

This chart from the NCSF explains it well.
