His best score in his rowing prime was 5:56—an all-out effort that left him in a physical shambles, he said.


“I would be lying there recovering for two days after a 2-kilometer test,” said the former college and national-team rower and current owner of CrossFit Coeur D’Alene in Idaho.

All high-level rowers can relate to Burns’ experience. It’s incredibly difficult to recover from a 100 percent rowing e...

Is Your Blood Sugar Undermining Your Workouts?
By Andy Hendel


Eating a diet high in sugar and processed foods could dent our long-term health in part by changing how well our bodies respond to exercise.


























People with consistently high levels of blood sugar could get less benefit from exercise than those whose blood sugar levels are normal, according to a cautionary new study of nutrition, blood sugar and exercise. The study, which involved rodents and people, suggests that eating a diet high in sugar and processed foods, which may set the stage for poor blood sugar control, could dent our long-term health in part by changing how well our bodies respond to a workout.


We already have plenty of evidence, of course, that elevated blood sugar is unhealthy. P...
