Crossfit Bodybuilder! (Pics) – See the results of bodybuilding on the Paleo Diet!
Crossfit is widely becoming the laughing-stock of the exercise world. Crossfit is now being compared to "the Shake-Weight of fitness" named after that silly infomercial exercise apparatus that makes people think it works, but really isn’t, and is merely apparent that people appear to be stroking themselves. Believing the ‘science’ behind it, its repetitions, and graphs, and the so-called testimonials saying "it worked for me!", and before and after photos, that appear in every infomercial.
Afterall, if all these testimonials and before & afters were true, every single contraption in the TV commercials must be true, right? Because they all have them. They use them because lesser-educated people believe anecdotes (stories of how it worked for them, or their brother, or uncle or friend), or not knowing that they would have lost weight and gained muscle the same or more on ANY diet, not paleo or crossfit, simply because before they were getting none and eating horribly, so just about anything making someone watch themselves and eat less calories plus force them to exercise will do it. It’s not the amazing miracle of the Paleo Diet, which actually has been shown to potentially lead to cancer and heart disease down the line.
The Paleo Diet is the "stone" in stone soup. A man comes to town, he drums up a story of the legend of ‘stone soup’, wherein a special stone boiled in a pot makes an astounding soup. The townspeople fall for it, wondering what this miraculous soup tastes like and how soup can be made from a stone, so they bring a pot, put the big rock in it. Then they sit. Then one says, well maybe it needs some broth, so they add it, another one of the people in the village brings some carrots, another adds celery, and another says I’ll add some of the potatoes I farmed! Another one say, oh, the stone definitely would want some spices and seasonings. The stone boils. And when it’s done, the man who was the outsider to the village comes and fishes the stone out of the pot and says, voila! there’s your soup. And all the towns people cheer and praise the man for how the stone has miraculously flavored the soup! All except 1 child who sees the scam.
The Paleo Diet is the STONE in stone soup. Crossfitters are "the village people" all dressed up like cavemen to exercise, and swearing up and down and praising the men like Loren Cordain for selling them the stone to put in the pot.
True bodybuilders and powerlifters don’t build massive muscles with burpees. To do what Grok the Caveman did would be to run around like you’re chasing an antelope for 40 miles, with a little pointed stick. Cavemen didn’t lift stones. Otherwise we’d see them. They didn’t build, they lived in a cave. Already built. Carrying rocks would waste valuable calories, so cavemen didn’t waste their time. Emphasis was on food so they didn’t starve, so Paleolithic cavemen had spindly bodies, like a Kenyan marathoner. No muscle mass.
Paleolithic man in the colder climates would evolve to be flabby and fat. Witness the Inuit. The body would evolve to GAIN fat, not lose it when it is cold outside. Fat provides insulation, and fat stores in periods of no animals in the arctic.
Grok was flabby where it was cold, and a rail thin runner with no muscles where it was warm.
Herbivores are muscular where it’s warm (the rhino, horse, antelopes, the Gorilla), and muscular where it’s cold (Reindeer, Moose, Caribou, Bull Elk). Carnivores are fat (polar bears fat, seals fat, walruses fat, Inuit fat).
Crossfitters are rather weak, have horrible cardio, and body odor due to their heavy pork and meat-based diet. Animal products produce lipids that are excreted through the underarm skin and bacteria feed on it. Remember, cavemen didn’t have showers, and if grok didn’t do it, in paleo you can’t do it. So if you signup for crossfit, get ready for the meat B.O. smell.
Also present in a crossfit gym is something called a puke bucket, this is to throw up in. Because the paleolitic diet tastes so bad, it makes people want to throw up. Especially after eating a load of meat and then going to lightly exercise like crossfit. This is why crossfit gyms have residual smells of vomit. – And NEVER go into the bathroom in a gym where they have Crossfit people. The feces odors are horrific.
The presence of the puke bucket at Crossfit workout places, should already tell you something about the fitness of the Paleo Diet. And why what they are telling you is not what mankind actually evolved for. Why would Grok go to extensive trouble, wasting calories, going on hunt after hunt, running for kilometers and miles, only to eat a precious meal to avert human extinction from starvation, and then throw it up. That’s a waste of precious food and calories. Especially after only a bunch of burpees and some pushups. These are all light weight exercises. Body weight. It means that the whole Paleo Diet plan they’ve been telling you is Not what paleolithic man actually ate. You’d never ‘evolve’ to adopt a diet where you threw it up, that would lead to wasted calories, starvation, and the human race would have gone extinct. This tells you that "The Paleo Diet" being told to you and sold to you by Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf, and Mark Sisson, in the book, is NOT what archeologically paleolithic man actually ate. "The Paleolithic Diet" is not the same as ‘the paleolithic diet". "The Paleo Diet" is not the worlds oldest diet, it’s a few year old fad diet scheme which they’ve gotten (a few of) you to believe has anything to do with what cavemen actually ate.
For example "The Paleo Diet" warned DONT EAT GRAINS! Cavemen didn’t eat Grain! –Well, it turns out they did. StoneAge man is now confirmed to have eaten grain. Not only some, but multiple instances, all over the place. And this was now shown by real paleontologists, not just a guy with a college degree in gym class who has no degree in paleontology whatsoever (Loren Cordain). Archeologists have now found using scanning electron microscopes pieces of grain right IN the teeth in the jawbones in skulls of man’s ancestors. And these date from 19,000, 30,000, 105,000 years ago, all before 10-thousand years ago.
In other words, CAVEMEN ATE GRAINS! Thus proving that The Paleo Diet is debunked in what it has been telling people, and this is why Paleo Diet nutrition and crossfit workouts are probably the worst combination for a bodybuilder. It would leave you weak, pale, sickly looking, and with tiny muscles. Such is The Paleo Diet.

Aluminum airframe and body with some fiberglass features; payload bay doors are graphite epoxy composite; thermal tiles are simulated (polyurethane foam) except for test samples of actual tiles and thermal blankets.
The first Space Shuttle orbiter, "Enterprise," is a full-scale test vehicle used for flights in the atmosphere and tests on the ground; it is not equipped for spaceflight. Although the airframe and flight control elements are like those of the Shuttles flown in space, this vehicle has no propulsion system and only simulated thermal tiles because these features were not needed for atmospheric and ground tests. "Enterprise" was rolled out at Rockwell International’s assembly facility in Palmdale, California, in 1976. In 1977, it entered service for a nine-month-long approach-and-landing test flight program. Thereafter it was used for vibration tests and fit checks at NASA centers, and it also appeared in the 1983 Paris Air Show and the 1984 World’s Fair in New Orleans. In 1985, NASA transferred "Enterprise" to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum.

Quoting from Wikipedia | Space Shuttle Enterprise:
The Space Shuttle Enterprise (NASA Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-101) was the first Space Shuttle orbiter. It was built for NASA as part of the Space Shuttle program to perform test flights in the atmosphere. It was constructed without engines or a functional heat shield, and was therefore not capable of spaceflight.
Originally, Enterprise had been intended to be refitted for orbital flight, which would have made it the second space shuttle to fly after Columbia. However, during the construction of Columbia, details of the final design changed, particularly with regard to the weight of the fuselage and wings. Refitting Enterprise for spaceflight would have involved dismantling the orbiter and returning the sections to subcontractors across the country. As this was an expensive proposition, it was determined to be less costly to build Challenger around a body frame (STA-099) that had been created as a test article. Similarly, Enterprise was considered for refit to replace Challenger after the latter was destroyed, but Endeavour was built from structural spares instead.
Construction began on the first orbiter on June 4, 1974. Designated OV-101, it was originally planned to be named Constitution and unveiled on Constitution Day, September 17, 1976. A write-in campaign by Trekkies to President Gerald Ford asked that the orbiter be named after the Starship Enterprise, featured on the television show Star Trek. Although Ford did not mention the campaign, the president—who during World War II had served on the aircraft carrier USS Monterey (CVL-26) that served with USS Enterprise (CV-6)—said that he was "partial to the name" and overrode NASA officials.
The design of OV-101 was not the same as that planned for OV-102, the first flight model; the tail was constructed differently, and it did not have the interfaces to mount OMS pods. A large number of subsystems—ranging from main engines to radar equipment—were not installed on this vehicle, but the capacity to add them in the future was retained. Instead of a thermal protection system, its surface was primarily fiberglass.
In mid-1976, the orbiter was used for ground vibration tests, allowing engineers to compare data from an actual flight vehicle with theoretical models.
On September 17, 1976, Enterprise was rolled out of Rockwell’s plant at Palmdale, California. In recognition of its fictional namesake, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and most of the principal cast of the original series of Star Trek were on hand at the dedication ceremony.
Approach and landing tests (ALT)
Main article: Approach and Landing Tests
While at NASA Dryden, Enterprise was used by NASA for a variety of ground and flight tests intended to validate aspects of the shuttle program. The initial nine-month testing period was referred to by the acronym ALT, for "Approach and Landing Test". These tests included a maiden "flight" on February 18, 1977 atop a Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) to measure structural loads and ground handling and braking characteristics of the mated system. Ground tests of all orbiter subsystems were carried out to verify functionality prior to atmospheric flight.
The mated Enterprise/SCA combination was then subjected to five test flights with Enterprise unmanned and unactivated. The purpose of these test flights was to measure the flight characteristics of the mated combination. These tests were followed with three test flights with Enterprise manned to test the shuttle flight control systems.
Enterprise underwent five free flights where the craft separated from the SCA and was landed under astronaut control. These tests verified the flight characteristics of the orbiter design and were carried out under several aerodynamic and weight configurations. On the fifth and final glider flight, pilot-induced oscillation problems were revealed, which had to be addressed before the first orbital launch occurred.
On August 12, 1977, the space shuttle Enterprise flew on its own for the first time.
Preparation for STS-1
Following the ALT program, Enterprise was ferried among several NASA facilities to configure the craft for vibration testing. In June 1979, it was mated with an external tank and solid rocket boosters (known as a boilerplate configuration) and tested in a launch configuration at Kennedy Space Center Launch Pad 39A.
With the completion of critical testing, Enterprise was partially disassembled to allow certain components to be reused in other shuttles, then underwent an international tour visiting France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the U.S. states of California, Alabama, and Louisiana (during the 1984 Louisiana World Exposition). It was also used to fit-check the never-used shuttle launch pad at Vandenberg AFB, California. Finally, on November 18, 1985, Enterprise was ferried to Washington, D.C., where it became property of the Smithsonian Institution.
After the Challenger disaster, NASA considered using Enterprise as a replacement. However refitting the shuttle with all of the necessary equipment needed for it to be used in space was considered, but instead it was decided to use spares constructed at the same time as Discovery and Atlantis to build Endeavour.
In 2003, after the breakup of Columbia during re-entry, the Columbia Accident Investigation Board conducted tests at Southwest Research Institute, which used an air gun to shoot foam blocks of similar size, mass and speed to that which struck Columbia at a test structure which mechanically replicated the orbiter wing leading edge. They removed a fiberglass panel from Enterprise’s wing to perform analysis of the material and attached it to the test structure, then shot a foam block at it. While the panel was not broken as a result of the test, the impact was enough to permanently deform a seal. As the reinforced carbon-carbon (RCC) panel on Columbia was 2.5 times weaker, this suggested that the RCC leading edge would have been shattered. Additional tests on the fiberglass were canceled in order not to risk damaging the test apparatus, and a panel from Discovery was tested to determine the effects of the foam on a similarly-aged RCC leading edge. On July 7, 2003, a foam impact test created a hole 41 cm by 42.5 cm (16.1 inches by 16.7 inches) in the protective RCC panel. The tests clearly demonstrated that a foam impact of the type Columbia sustained could seriously breach the protective RCC panels on the wing leading edge.
The board determined that the probable cause of the accident was that the foam impact caused a breach of a reinforced carbon-carbon panel along the leading edge of Columbia’s left wing, allowing hot gases generated during re-entry to enter the wing and cause structural collapse. This caused Columbia to spin out of control, breaking up with the loss of the entire crew.
Enterprise was stored at the Smithsonian’s hangar at Washington Dulles International Airport before it was restored and moved to the newly built Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum‘s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at Dulles International Airport, where it has been the centerpiece of the space collection. On April 12, 2011, NASA announced that Space Shuttle Discovery, the most traveled orbiter in the fleet, will be added to the collection once the Shuttle fleet is retired. When that happens, Enterprise will be moved to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City, to a newly constructed hangar adjacent to the museum. In preparation for the anticipated relocation, engineers evaluated the vehicle in early 2010 and determined that it was safe to fly on the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft once again.
