Facebragging and the art of the Rx...

A friend of mine mentioned the other day that people who post their workouts on Facebook are taking part in something called "Facebragging". If that's the case then I've been Facebragging the sh*t out of some workouts lately. I'm about 6 full months into a Paleo lifestyle and have been setting a ton of new PR's for myself. Here are a few:

"Karen" - 7:08 (1 min PR Rx)
"Jackie" - 7:42 (50 sec PR Rx)
"Murph" - 40:48 (14min PR Rx)
"Annie" - 5:57 (1 min PR Rx)
"Nancy" - 17:19 (1:30 PR Rx)

Olympic Lifting
Snatch - 145# [5#PR]
Back Squat - 275# [30#PR]
Clean - 185# [10#PR]
Jerk - 190# [15#PR]

After the last WOD somebody asked me what I was "taking". I told them "Bacon but only from pigs that are raised in a humane environment and are given HgH injections..." 

I guess every one is looking for a shortcut or can't believe that a 43 year old fart like myself could change his diet enough to improve performance. Enough people have asked so I figured if any of you really want to know, here is what I am doing:

1. Food = Equal parts meat, green veggies, water
2. Stretch more and sit less
3. Hot salt baths (Candles and mood music optional)
4. Beer

I swear to God that is it. Also I have stayed relatively injury free by making sure that I scale properly. I've gotten so good at choosing a proper weight my buddy Rigby calls it "Wooley Weight". You have achieved proper "Wooley Weight" if the people Rx-ing around you look like you are about to sh*t themselves while you look like you don't have a care in the world. If you are continuing to get injured because your ego wants you to lift with the big boys then drop down the weight. Besides, if you are lifting at the women's prescribed weight it still counts as Rx.

Don't judge me. I don't make the rules....
