VO2max testing and a BODPOD reading. The VO2 Max determines your body's maximal consumption of oxygen and the efficiency of your muscles. During the test, we're measuring oxygen consumption and CO2 production to determine your heart rate max , VO2 max and estimated lactate threshold. The BODPOD is an Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP) that uses whole body densitometry to determine body composition (fat vs. lean). Similar in principle to underwater weighing, the BOD POD measures body mass (weight) using a very precise scale, and volume by sitting inside the BOD POD.
Do you have a gardening bucket list? Does it include saving carrot seeds? Mine does. This obsession germinated last fall. Just once. For the experience alone; I’m less obsessed with the turnout, but more interested in the process. I’m not an avid seed saver; I prefer to support seed companies. Carrots are a biennial and in our climate you are suppose to keep the carrots in a cooler all winter and then plant them out the next year, far far away from it’s close cousin Queen Anne’s lace. There’s more magic to it, but when I reached for one of my locally grown storage carrots in the fridge last week, the opportunity had presented itself to me. I feel like these carrots chose me, and this is my year to pursue this silly goal. #carrots#seedtofork#minnesotagrown#homegrown#growyourown#seedsaving

It’s what the Army teaches you. If you’re going to be a leader, you have to set an example and follow it yourself.
