Who's a Candy Freak?

October 01, 2014

As of this writing, viagra 60mg I’m on the last day of the Whole 30.  One thing I would not recommend during the last days of the Whole 30 is reading Candy Freak by Steve Almond.  Now, try if you’ve ever eaten too much candy or enjoyed a book, capsule I would recommend Candy Freak.  Almond is a fun, sharp writer with a candy obsession that decides to write about his obsession.

This may be akin to a CrossFit obsessed person opening a CrossFit gym.

One of the main observations of the book is how the candy industry has moved from many small companies to a few major companies.

What do the small companies that have survived do to stay afloat?  They still produce their bars, but they also produce protein and diet bars during other shifts.  Companies will produce their candy bar 10 days a month and diet and protein bars 20 days a month.  What are protein bars made of?  Candy – and as Almond describers it – with protein paste thrown in there.

I used to be a “bar” guy – a few years ago, I would eat a Builders Bar every day in the afternoon.  I dumped that habit because I realized it was basically candy.  I hear Kill Cliff is making their own bars now…guess what?  It’s candy.

Workout of the Day

Strength/Skill

Deadlift

Heavy set of 5

This is week 1.  You should drop 50-60# from your heavy set of 5 last week – so if you hit 335, this week you’re working to 285.  Use 7-8 sets to get there.  For example, Bar (45), 135, 185, 205, 225, 245, 265, finally finishing with your target weight of 285.

Conditioning

30 Bar Facing Burpees

30 Hang Power Cleans 135/95

If you are looking at this thinking, Is that it?  The answer is yes, that’s it.  Now, go so fast that someone unfamiliar with CrossFit would think you are trying to make yourself spontaneously combust.
