Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

I have no problem with that. However, if a guy can barely hold the KB overhead and it is wobbly - you reckon an increase is a tad too large for that lad? Off topic, I am surprised there is not much choice in regards to adjustable kettlebells. I have one made locally, it goes from 9 to 32 kg in 1 kg...

Whenever things become ideological they become a problem. Pavel said LARGE INCREASES, bitches!
To be fair, Dan John and Jack Reape among others have been advocating large jumps for a loooooooooong time.

Re: Consistency over intensity

- You work up to a top set of 500x5@9. Then you follow the -5% guideline and start doing sets with 475 until @9 is achieved. And, for the sake of the argument, let's say you did just three sets until the prescribed fatigue level kicked in. Wouldn't it be useful to try and increase the number of -5%...

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 f...

Re: Consistency over intensity

Here is how it works: 1) The lifter works up to their initial top set. Let’s say 500×5@9 2) The lifter then subtracts 5% from this number to get 475. 3) The lifter will repeat sets at 475 until he hits an RPE 9. This may take one set or it may take ten sets. 4) Once an RPE 9 is reached at 475, we k...

What's the difference between RPE and RIR? I mean, they look like exactly the same thing, reversing the math.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

I don't even think S&S sucks. 100 one arm swings with 32 kg is fairly strong. It's just not marketed for what it is: just it's another fucking program. Not the solution to every fitness need on the planet. Because that's what Q&D is! But you have S&S covered first. 2.0 version, not the hopelessly o...

LOL K...I was watching videos about the belt squat setup so I'm warming up to the idea, although it will cost me $300 or so to get up and running.
Or, you can always swallow the bitter pill and do BBB for a few months. Those 5x10 assistance squats are enlightening, trust me. :finga:

Take a hint from Alan Thrall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYEVqa4C0yg Really? I think what he is describing as stiff leg DL is actually a conventional deadlift.

RDLs. They work the posterior chain well without the strain on the neck and spine that comes from GMs.
That's my go-to assistance for the deadlift. And stiff legged ones too.
