Greasing the Groove Training Principles

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Greasing the Groove (GtG) training principles are based on improving muscle memory and facilitating more efficient muscle contraction, leading to greater strength. The principles include exercising at lower repetitions and intensity with greater volume and frequency
  • Your objective with GtG is to train multiple times each day at lower repetitions and weight to keep you fresh for the next set. It is crucial to rest at least 15 minutes between each set and stop well before you experience muscle fatigue or failure
  • The strategy was developed during the Cold War by strength coach and past Soviet Special Forces instructor Pavel Tsatsouline and has since been adopted by the U.S. Marine Corps, Secret Service and Navy SEALS
  • While there is value to GtG, Tsatsouline incorporates it into a program also involving heavier weights. Kaatsu, or blood flow restriction training, offers some of the same benefits of heavy lifting using light weights and high repetitions

Vitamin C Lowers Mortality in Severe Sepsis

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Sepsis is a last-ditch effort by your immune system to fight an infection in your body; it can lead to multiple organ failure and death unless promptly treated
  • While viruses, fungi and parasites all have the ability to trigger sepsis, bacterial infections are the most common cause. The most common types of infection triggering sepsis are respiratory and urinary tract infections
  • Each year, an estimated 1 million Americans get sepsis and up to half of them die as a result. The reason for its high mortality rate is because sepsis is often overlooked; many are unfamiliar with its signs and symptoms. It’s also notoriously difficult to treat
  • In 2017, a critical care physician announced the discovery of a simple and inexpensive way to treat sepsis using an intravenous cocktail of vitamin C and thiamine in combination with hydrocortisone
  • A 2019 study using vitamin C only found it lowered mortality risk in patients with severe sepsis, and reduced the number of days spent in intensive care and overall hospital stay
