Don’t be skinny fat!

They have a saggy appearance with no muscle definition but think they are healthy because the scale says so. They are generally proud of their weight loss yet still ashamed to be seen in public without clothes on to cover all the saggy body parts. But good news! There is hope for skinny fat people! Its called weight training. Its not easy, but with just a little weight/ resistance training, the skinny fat can be turned into a lean, mean, healthy machine! – from HIT CrossFit

Strength is the foundation of all athletic activity.  The typical metabolic conditioning workout CrossFit is most famous does little to develop strength and only in untrained athletes does it increase muscle.  This is apparent when you compare CrossFit affiliates that build their programs around solid strength conditioning to the ones that lean towards the sexy metcons.  Heck, many CrossFitters are skinny fat…  a condition easily caused by the elevated cortisol levels the met con workout can cause.  It is not dissimilar to the atrophic look of the long distance athlete.  Low testosterone and elevated estrodiol levels further fuel the skinny fat man’s predicament.
It seems I’ve started a trend amongst the CrossFit affiliates in Wilmington (being blatantly copied is flattering) by posting articles by Coach Charles Poliquin.  Poliquin loathes weaklings, so it only perfect to post his take on skinny-fat kids…

Ten Sure-Fire Steps To Stay a Fat Skinny Whining Twerp – by Charles Poliquin
1.   Be delusional about being fast-twitch, despite the facts that your forearms can clean a pipe, have the calf development of a parrot, and I can barely slip a credit card under your feet when you do a vertical jump.
2.   Do the plank as your primary core exercice.
3.   Do three total body workouts a week. Stay away from split routines, you will gain size and mass on them.
4.   Fear training more than once a day.
5.   Eat carbs & casein while you train
6.   Stop lifting the bar as soon as it decelerates.
7.   Worry about getting enough carbs in your diet.
8.   Assume that every strong athlete who trains more than once a day is a steroid freak.
9.   Piss and moan that good supplements are expensive.
10. Read everything on strength training but keep debating successful strength coaches on why you keep following the given above nine steps.

Don’t be skinny.

Strong is the new skinny.

    Tony, bro, pal, amigo – I would never judge you! lol The difference between Judgement & Expectations. I don’t Judge other people (it’s not my job & I’m not qualified); however I do have Expectations for other people. When you EXPECT something out of someone else it means you have respect for them & you think they should have respect for themselves. Expectations can result in disappointment but they can also lead to great accomplishments. EXPECT MORE; JUDGE LESS!
