Amazing Shot!

Had to post this – in Color as well! – It’s an amazing shot that a friend of NDN recently got visiting Machu Picchu – They were rewarded for their effort to overcome the climb and lower O2 levels with amazing weather! Machu Picchu is just one of those places you need to check out at least once in your life! Totally jealous. I might just photoshop myself on this picture…

Urban Firefighters Out of Their Natural Element

This is a picture from yesterday’s fire attack on a massive brush fire in the urban area of our City. The dry, hot weather of the past few weeks have done nothing to help the situation. Unfortunately more and more brush/forest fires occur today than ever before – climate change is here to stay, and the climate change in relation to fires is that the optimal conditions required for brush/forest fires are more prevalent than ever before, as well as the ‘windows of opportunity’ for fires to occur are longer and more frequent.

That was the ‘short-version’ – for anyone interested in the actual science behind it, have a look at the following research article:

“Pathways for climate change effects on fire: Models, data, and uncertainties” – found in the June 2011 edition of the Progress in Physical Geography Journal

Perhaps our department will have to start certifying us in brush-fire tactics in the near future…

Today is a rest day! Time to get stuff around the house done finally!

 

Yesterday’s protein calculator proved to be quite a popular posting, so we’ve decided to follow it up with an article regarding the main types of protein and how they are processed by the body in regards to athletic requirements. The article also touches on how much protein strength-training athletes should consume. It makes for a very interesting read and anyone thinking about doing our workout or supplementing their protein intake should give it a shot!

 

This article comes from one of our favourite sources of information – the well respected and peer-reviewed Journal of Sports Science and Medicine.  The article is written by Dr. Jay Hoffman, PhD.

One of the highlights of this great article is the following line: As a result, recommendations for strength/power athletes’ protein intake are generally suggested to be between 1.4 – 1.8 gkg-1day-1. If you are doing the Firefighter-Hybrid Workout, you are a strength/power athlete - period!

Thankfully we were able to find the PDF of his Review Article (A Review Article is an piece of research whereby a researcher analyses all the current literature and summarizes it);

 

http://jssm.org/vol3/n3/2/v3n3-2pdf.pdf

 

While we obviously know that our readers are rational individuals capable of thinking for themselves, please let us remind you – and this goes without saying –  as with anything else you read on the internet, do your own research before embarking on any workout and diet modifications.
