Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

N=1 but I’ve seen BB focused guys in the field lose it fairly quickly. Things like accidents & fires that require more work capacity left them gassed and at the recovery wagon fairly quickly. Hell, I’ve had to carry one guy out on a house fire because he dropped. The guy was pretty damn strong in t...

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

I basically gave up on barbells because I do hate commercial gyms and I'm strictly forbidden to put a cage in my living room (I live in a small apartment). So KB and rings it is. That being said, after a few years of experimentation, I found that I don't really need anything else to keep me strong e...

This looks good, but it’s basically advocating a 45 year old starting out keep HR to 130 BPM. Even going super slow that seems challenging.
Doing the whole nose breathing only seems to do the trick nicely. No heart rate monitors needed.

Re: Kettlell sport for fitness and pulling

I am now can tell as i tested that sad truth on myself. GS good at developing pushing strength (even without barbells), but sucks at developing pulling strength :( I distinctly remember Dunn saying GS training with 32s doubles were enough to maintain a deadlift over 400 lbs.

Re: Downsizing

How about a low-rep, low-fatigue, low-volume barbell program? All that wiry-strength Pavelisms... Would that work to maintain a decent strength base while downsizing? At 58, for me, the combination of a minimalist PttP/GtG/easy strength abbreviated routine coupled to Maffetone-esque hill hiking and...

Why doesn't anybody swim? I don't know if this is a regional thing or not but here even the cheap gyms over a given size have a 25 yd pool.

Re: Q&D vs basic GS for fitness?

I personally like the idea of A+A training scheme. I can't afford doing it on top of BJJ, the volume will kill me, unfortunately. What I would do though is to add variety - in addition to a set of 5 on the minute I would do, say a double cluster (5 reps, 15 seconds rest, 5 reps, then long rest), ch...
