Re: Did people in the middle ages exercise?

So, warriors/knights/soldiers exercises

Joe Average Middle Ages didn't. He starved and worked manual labor to keep his svelte figure

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

How many times has this argument played out? Barbells, dumbbells are the most cost efficient, movement efficient way to get stronger, build muscle, etc. I mean, given an orthopedically sound body, a barbell is all you need, you just need to get creative. That being said, some folks like other shit. ...

Re: Another Saudi Terrorist

Yet burning witches and shit, and the rabid wahabism suppression of any type of individual freedom or rights is ok? Last time we had known pilot training for Saudis it didn't end well, did it?

Re: Game Changers - the documentary

Re: Brief praise of jogging

Another good resource is Andrew Read's Run Strong book. He goes into debunking a lot of the 'chi' and 'pose' stuff, although you may find that if you are just getting back into it, it's worth it. What the 'on the toes' style of running does is shift stresses. But his break in running program, which ...

Re: Home gym thoughts

I don't even know if you need plywood.

1 horse stall mat is enough to lift on.
2 horse stall mats lengthwise will give you padding for your rack and probably a place to deadlift from.

Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

The SF/HS style of kb work leaves a lot of grip endurance on the table.

If there is a real 'functional strength' it has to do with the strength, endurance and resilience of the hands. Long set styles of lifting build a ferocious grip endurance.

There is another axis on that graph I can't really describe it more that 'putting your eggs in few baskets'. In third world countries? Kids and babies die.

Re: H-town flood

Yeah. No worries.

Other folks aren't as lucking. Imelda caught everyone off guard as it'd moved north and east a bit, then some bands of rain came around and just dumped a bunch of water.

Not as bad as Harvey, and a lot drained quickly but still quite a bit of floodign.

Re: NOT Born That Way

The happiest societies are those without sexual hang ups.

The most miserable are those who have them. And they are distinctly interested in fucking up the happy societies vibe.

See Pacific Islanders and Missionaries for a great example of this.

sigfrith777 or something like that.

Glenn was a lifter's lifter and coach, and I too will miss him. His stroke diminished him somewhat, but he recovered. But the whole thing with Muscle Driver USA was weird, here he was, Pendlay bars, Pendlay bumpers, Pendlay DoWin shoes, then nothing.
