If you have ever wondered why we recommend to greatly restrict the amount of fruit in your diet, whether or not you are trying to lose weight or if you are trying to eat healthy, here is one reason why.  Studies like the one cited above have shown repeatedly that the sugar in fruit (fructose) is more likely to get turned into fat than other forms of sugar.  The study showed that de novo lipogenesis (the creation of fat) was significantly higher in those individuals who were given fructose sweetened beverages vs. those given glucose sweetened beverages.  This is especially true with fruit juices, which are basically 100% fructose with no fiber.  Many other parameters were measured in the study and researchers in fact found, “This data suggests that dietary fructose specifically increases de novo lipogenesis, promotes dyslipidemia, decreases insulin sensitivity, and increases visceral adiposity.”

Warm-up
CrossOver Symmetry Activation
30 calories on Assault Bike easy pace

Workout of the Day
Since we can’t do two hero WOD’s in a row, in belated celebration of our own Aaron Chonder Dewey Taylor’s birthday, I give you his favorite hero WOD:
“Jason”
For time:
100 Squats
5 Muscle-ups
75 Squats
10 Muscle-ups
50 Squats
15 Muscle-ups
25 Squats
20 Muscle-ups

If you cannot do muscle-ups, you will do equal number strict pull-ups and hand release push-ups.  This workout is completely capped at 40 minutes.  In order to not rip on the muscle-ups, start with small sets right off the bat.

S01 (SEAL) Jason Dale Lewis was killed by an IED while conducting combat operations in Southern Baghdad July 6, 2007. We name this workout “Jason” in honor of his life, family, and courage. Donna, Jack, Max, and Grace, we’ll forget neither your husband and father nor your sacrifice and loss. Fair winds, Jason.
