Latest victims of the BrinkZone Gauntlet, Leah Gifford and Paul Gifford, who get down and dirty with a workout that is whole body training at its best. This is what effective efficient whole body GPP, conditioning, endurance, and metabolic work looks like using the Prowler Sled, sand bags, and other tools. No “toning and firming” nonsense here, just hard work that yields results! BTW, all the tools used in this vid can be found via the “Approved Stuff” section if interested in more info.

    I’d love to get the breakdown of that routine. Unfortunately, my gym doesn’t have a prowler, sand bags or a trap bar ……never mind… 😉

      Everything in the vid is owned by me and I just leave it the gym. So, my gym was not going to have that stuff either unless I put it there.

        And you’re not worried someone will steal them?
        Maybe not so easy with the prowler but I can see someone
        Taking that sandbag. Are they considered owned by you, (considering who you are) or are they
        Considered the property of the gym?

          The gym knows I own that stuff of course, and some members do. Most
          members I’m sure assume it’s owned by the gym. Walking out with 80lbs of sandbag
          would likely get noticed I figure.
          So far so good. More worried about people
          breaking the stuff vs stealing. As a rule, the stuff that gets stolen from gyms
          is small stuff, such as colors and clips and such. I wouldn’t leave my pair of
          Globe Gripz there for example.

            We probably have a more tenacious bunch at my gym; they’ve stolen weights, collers, and the locker room is such a minefield that local police pass out flyers warning members not to leave valuables in the gym. I’d think these fools would dump the sand out, leave it and hide the actual bag in their big gym bag. I wouldn’t put it past them. Oh yeah, last year the custodial staff were arrested as the thieves stealing members belongings out lockers. This is an LA Fitness franchise. So sad

    Hi Will
    I read the article about Creatine which suggests that creatine can be used as a preventative medicine for diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease – These diseases are genetic diseases : with Alzheimer’s for example deterministic and risk genes have already been identified – these gene mutations code for the processing or production of beta amyloid plaques in the brain – the plaques cause brain damage which in turn results in the symptoms of the disease.
    Current research is looking at Stem cells and Antisense RNA as future treatments for these diseases – Antisense RNA has been used to ‘knock out’ ripening genes in tomatoes for decades now – this prolongs the ‘shelve life’ of tomatoes sold in supermarkets – It could prove to be a very effective treatment for Alzheimer’s and may be of use in some of the other genetic diseases mentioned in the article. – My thoughts are that these diseases cannot be treated at the kind of cellular level you suggest and that the author of the article is more interested in selling Creatine than in any of the serious diseases mentioned.

      And did you read the data cited in the article and articles found on this site? I recommend you start there. Creatine has been shown to be help with a number of neuro degenerative diseases, is neuro protective, etc, in a variety of ways, but there’s no claims it’s a stand alone treatment for them. Creatine may improve symptoms, and or, slow disease progression (which the data supports) and may be useful with other therapies. Regardless, creatine has a wide range of other potential health anti aging benefits, well supported by the data. “Current research” is great when looking at future treatments, but many promising future treatments (viral vectors to insert genes, stem cells, etc) are not helping people right now.
