Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is something everyone doing CrossFit is intimately familiar with.  Here's a nice article about it from Mark Sisson.

    Just an FYI, my shoulder is better but now my hands hurt from the 8 million pull ups I did yesterday…
    I also like to kill sharks with my bare hands!

    Question for all of you Paleo-ers…
    How do you respond to the following scenario:
    Paleo-er: you should eat as our ancestors do because that is how we are genetically built to eat.
    Devil’s advocate: yeah, they ate like that and they only lived for about 30 years (they had a shorter life span than us)… why should we want to eat like that?

    No, they didn’t live just for thirty years. That was the average life expectancy including infant mortality rates.

    First:
    Bethanie, the article was very likely fake. Relax. I’m sure all the man-eating sharks that wouldn’t hesitate to swallow you whole are completely fine.
    Second:
    Life expectancy was indeed roughly 30 years back in the stone ages. It makes logical sense that if healthier living can extend life to 80+ years, then a complete lack of antiseptics, science and any cumulative human knowledge would plunge the life expectancy down considerably. Sure people probably lived to be 60 back then, but we’ve got 100+ year olds now.

    tell your Devil’s advocate to go live outdoors all their life, without docotors or medicine, and see how long they last. Also, David is right…if you have a two parents who live to be 60 and they had two children who died at birth, their average lifespan is 30. Infant mortality was a very common occurrence back then.

    The article being “fake” is exactly my fear!!
    Thank you for all the comments regarding life expectancy.

    An interesting study would be to determine if infant mortality has risen in recent history. I don’t know how accurate pre-agricultural revolution records would be, or that any actually exist, but it would seem that your young dying immediately would be something that evolution would weed out pretty quickly.

    I think all the points have been made on the life expectancy/paleo issue but I want to talk about it anyway. Queen and mike are right with the illnesses and injuries you would receive and may die from without proper medical attention. But I don’t think it’s the fear of bleeding to death or dying from an infection that took the most lives, I think it’s the fact that if you were ill or injured you wouldn’t be able to hunt, gather or contribute to your tribe at all.
    Now maybe, because of our society and density, illnesses and bacteria thrive more than they did when we first began. But I know I have been injured to the point of being unable to help myself multiple times in 24 years. I imagine that 30 years is a pretty good length of time to allow for you to seriously injure yourself to the point of handicapping.

    Embrace death Bethaine like you embrace clean and jerks so says Buddha!
    Also another for you, eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you might die or be eaten by a Tiger Shark off the coast of Florida or Cali…

    I do! Especially because death by car accident is more likely than getting attacked by a shark…especially in this god damn city

    Thanks Erin. Please keep us updated.
    I did 3 rounds of the workout, but since running and wall balls are my favorites, my time was super fast 😛
