Re: Just sinister. Database for masochists.

Another way to get blasted in under 15 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVEmayyn8-M&t=650s Going to try adding one or two sessions like this instead of doing Q&D/A+A snatches ...seems like a much better use of 15-20 minutes Are there people who just train like this all the time? ...just free...

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...

Re: Q&D vs basic GS for fitness?

Why do you need a program? Showing up a 1/2 hour a day and doing what you're doing is great. Try it for 4-6 weeks, you're not going to get dick cancer by not following a program. Congrats on your baby. Thanks Guess I just mean some guidelines - like with S&S or Q&D of how a simple GS-based workout ...

Q&D vs basic GS for fitness?

Our third kid was born 8 weeks ago just as the Q&D book was coming out, so being curious and critical of what it seemed to be I bought it and started the program to see. Turned out I was right and IMO the swings and pushups plan = a lot of time spent not doing very much. The snatch plan appealed to ...

Re: Kettlebells for Running

Well... now that we have established that S&S sucks at being a standalone program, let's discuss what would be a nice all-around KB centric program. My choices would be: - The Armor Building Complex (2 cleans, 1 press, 3 squats) on the minute plus pull ups. - Left of Passage: 3x(1,2,3) of some clea...

Re: 2017, new shit?

Running.

Started running again in January. Done an 8k race and two half marathons so far since. Recently started adding a bit of trails too.

For a good chunk of this year been doing around 100 push-ups a day.

No rowing, no kettlebells.

Re: My Experiment

Fwiw there is absolutely no benefit to using a high drag on the erg. Drop it down to somewhere between 110-125 (130 max). Even Olympic pros wouldn't train higher than that. Keep your stroke rate low 18-22 Biggest problem I had with using HR on the erg is temperature/airflow. Unlike running or cyclin...

Re: Working legs without squats or machines

Yeah goblet squats.

No you can't do them heavy but awesome for full rom squat movement and I have always found them very good for lower back problems - stretching everything out in the bottom position.

And you can do them every day since they're light.
