Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

The H10 gets great reviews from all who use it that I actually know. The H7 can have be a bit
noisy for whatever reason.

Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

and really, the ease of use of the OH1 is it's chief strength.

Re: Heart Rate Monitor Recommendations

I've got the H7 and the OH1. I use the H7 for HRV/RHR readings I use the OH1 for training now, since it's a lot less hassle than the H7. The OH1 is an optical on that goes around your forearm or upper arm (or other places)...it's more useful for me for rucking and cardio due to it's more forgiving ...

As soon as this first wave dies down, and N95 masks are available again, you can bet you'll see mask wearing during future influenza and covid19 waves.

I think for a dude with two hip replacements that it seemed pretty unwise.

I mean, how high was that squat, actually? It was like a 6 inch squat

Re: Decline Bench Press

Is there much difference between decline bench and weighted dips? Dips make more sense to me. Have never tried decline barbell bench, but that sounds awkward AF. Decline DB bench is alright but also a pain once things get heavy, specially if you can’t just drop them at the end. Dips are probably a ...

Re: Decline Bench Press

I like dumbbell decline presses for pectoral mass. It's one of the few movements I've seen rapid change with. Aside from that, I also like putting a 25# plate under the end of the bench and doing slight decline 'tilt' benches. It changes the angle just a bit, it seems to take some stress out of the ...

Re: Consistency over intensity

Subclaw Question 1: That happens organically, especially if you aren't a fast twitch monster. It's not necessarily 'better' to do 5 sets instead of 3, it's just 'more'. The fatigue stop can be a 3% or even a 10%...it's part of finding your way, and it's part of surfing the wave of fitness/fatigue fo...

Every million dollars spent killing a terrorist lea...

I wear running shoes or low hikers. On concrete and flat. I am looking at different brands of 'tactical' books that are used extensively in that community for rucking.

Used to do it a lot. I used a classic leather boxer's rope for close to 15 years before it broke, now I have a Boa 2000 I very infrequently use.

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

Also, interesting.

"Slow" twitch fibers doesn't refer to the speed of contraction. It refers to more how rapidly it runs out of fuel.

Ergo there is far more benefit in training the slow twitch fibers to be stronger than there is the fast twitch fibers to burn more fat.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

McCallum's advice was overly influenced in his later writing by Art Joneses nonsense.

As far as his squatting advice, almost nobody needs to spend that much time banging out high rep breathing squats.
