Re: Thinking In Bets

Gambling is for degenerates. Gambling attracts degenerates and because of that seems to be dominated by them. However, like with any other activity, it's how you do it makes a difference. Everybody gambles in one form or another. Starting a business, changing a job, investing, getting married (1:1 ...

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

I am currently doing 10 x 10 swings with 20 kg, as per S&S. Not hard, but a workout for me. I like the idea of staying on the same weight for a while. The plan is to slowly progress in increments of 2 kg and staying on the same weight for at least 10 sessions. Maybe longer if it still doesn't feel l...

Re: Brief praise of jogging

I just read this book https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41v3CAKbsGL.jpg Very good and in full support of jogging. You have to build your aerobic base with slow long activities, and it is a long and very gradual process. Building anaerobic capacity with intervals brings results quickly...

Yellow 16 kg kettlebell I bought years ago from Sataev. That one is adjustable with lead shot. Too much work and messy.

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 ...

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

One guy is asking on SF forum about the progression from 16 kg to 24 kg bell, which he can barely press with two hands off the floor. What's the advice? Keep going, it's gonna get easier, check your form etc. A suggestion of getting a lighter than 24 kg bell gets a frown from Mother F whose reasonin...

Re: Consistency over intensity

Columbu never ever used RPE. He used steroids instead. That's what allowed him to work out at the limit every time. I have some bad news for you. Everybody at the highest levels of every sport use PEDs. That said, having read a couple of Colombu's books, he did not train to his limit every time. Bo...

Re: Consistency over intensity

It does in absolute terms, but not in relative, as in RPE scale. What I feel at 90% effort is not different from what you feel at your 90% effort. And, if you want to continue xeno-racist slurs at least start using vocative commas.

I was browsing Dave Dealer's forum and came across this post by Dan John. I think it was an article on Dragondoor. Worth reposting. Found it! Years ago my friend Dr. Jim Wright said something that got burned into my brain: “consistency and moderation over intensity”. Not nearly as sexy as “Do ...

Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Some folk swear by box squats. They hurt my back a few years ago, probly because I overdid things.

Dan John also wrote about squats from a sticking point. Also easy to overdo.

Overhead squats - fry the core with small weight.

Finally, double KB front squat is the league on its own.
