Re: Consistency over intensity

I think the anecdote about Arnold and Columbo intuitively knowing when to hold em and when to fold em, is the end point in that learning process. Mike T, by fleshing ouT RPE, gives a micro view into how you self monitor. Gym goers everywhere skip workouts, knowing which ones to skip takes a long tim...

Re: Consistency over intensity

FC, I'll try to frame an example. A lot of people have had success with 531, a system which relies on an autoregulated top set. When you initially start the program, the tops sets become somewhat variable. I find many people are surprised by what they get in terms of reps..This top set is really one...

Re: Consistency over intensity

I do think you’re missing a little bit of the main thrust here. It is really very subtle. All we are talking about is the practice of systematizing self reflection. You bring up the pain scale as an example of something you think lacks value. The scale is used in a clinical setting every day and is ...

Re: Consistency over intensity

I'm saying you will need to understand the principle in order to keep advancing on your own...which at some point is where every athlete lands. Whether they are elite or they are just focused. We all know how to gauge effort. What RPE does is give you an arbitrary scale to begin observing your obser...

Re: Consistency over intensity

Discarding RPE is setting aside probably the one tool that separates people who exercise and people who train with a purpose. The "thing" of RPE, however you couch it, whether in a number scale or other methodology, is that you systematically learn how your body reacts to a given stimulus.... and th...

Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Jack and I ran one idea to ground with great effect.

Deep relatively hi rep hip belt squats with weights near or slightly above working weight for a back squat. Incredible results in terms of leg mass and overall strength. Easy on back and knees.

Find stronger people and do zone 2 cardio. A Lot. Train at something* every day. Let the volume do the work. If you have a question about how much volume is enough, you're not doing it.

Re: Only endurance exercise slows down ageing

Weight lifting in what I’ve seen in older folks fixes many of the visible aspects of aging. Seems like the endurance work fixes the actual aging.

Good argument for both.
