Pre-Games events all wrapped up. The real show gets rolling Thursday.
Dani and I hit the Heath Conference, which was pretty interesting overall. Greg Glassman opened the show, then we heard:
The Crisis in Science - Dr. Jeff Glassman (Greg G.'s father actually.)
The Central Role of Nutrition in Our Health, Education, Economics, Politics, Environment, and Beliefs - Dr. Gary Fettke
Character, Self-belief, and the Search for Perfection: Psychology, Human Performance, and Diet - Prof. Tim Noakes
Summary, nutrition has been corrupted by big biz and special interests. Coke is evil, the 7th Day Adventists control everything, and belief makes you a winner. And actually, they all made a pretty compelling case… but 6 hours of talks is a bit much to sum up here.
Then we were invited to the first screening of Ogar: Will of Steel. This is the documentary made about Kevin Ogar, and we met Kevin. You can read Chris Colucci’s excellent article on that whole ordeal here: https://www.t-nation.com/training/crossfit-kevin-ogar-and-questions
The doc is worth checking out. Google it Sept. 1st.
