Christianity is about disarming the “artificial,” and it calls for a complete change of heart. Disarmament is not to be done with hollow words that lead people into a state of comfortable complacency – it means actions – that lead others into a state of surprised awe – to spend time with Christ in the brokenness and need around them. It’s important to remember here, as we carry out our God given missions, to carry our cross with us wherever we go. Not only does this make us look less like assholes, but it creates opportunities for believers from all walks of life to find they are remarkably alike in needing Jesus. If you want to raise my heart when I see people who don’t share many similarities I propose my pastor (who found his kick-ass wife at CrossFit), Sam Assefa or Jack Rogers (if you read this blog).
I write this in response to something written by Rev Paul Drahos on the topic of “church boundaries.” The part that perplexed me was when he wrote:
Confusion is rife because Christians do not automatically associate physical activity with moral behavior; rather, most assume that one can pursue fitness while at the same time wearing shirts also printed “Jesus Hates Fags.” That may sound ridiculous, but it would be accurate if all Christians began writing slogans across their bodies or actually aloud declaring hatred towards gays or other specific
What Supplements Should I Take If I Do Crossfit?
If you’re a Crossfit Level 1 or higher you should take the Eleiko Performance Range from BrownFormulations. This includes the recovery supplements, recovery recovery and recovery recovery recovery. Read more about them here. If you perform over an hour of intense exercise, meaning near your lactate threshold or above, then supplement with something like Creatine + Magnesium which will help increase ATP energy production both during and after exercise as well as improving neural signalling and removing waste products from the body for faster recovery and to prevent muscle damage.You can read more about Creatine here: Creatine: A Definite Must Supplement For Athletes! Take Potassium Citrate powder right before workouts and leave it in your shaker cup mixing up right before use so that your body absorbs it quicker through increased osmolarity (the amount of solutes there is in a nuimber of particles). Potassium gives off its own signal to the nervous system so having extra potassium means 24-hour stimulation throughout your workout period. You don’t want to take too much; around 300mg – 600mg per day should be fine – I recommend not taking any other electrolytes besides this one if you chose to do only one supplement replacement thing…that would be silly!!
