Re: Pavhole on Rogan

I don't think Pavel gets too many questions at his seminars. I think asking him about Crossfit at a seminar is the same as asking the Pope on his opinion about Islam. That's the thing with StrongFirst: you don't question things; shut up and do protocol 034. Then report the results.

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

I must say, it was one of the most informative episodes of Rogan's podcast in a while. It wasn't as much of an interview as it was Pavel's presentation. And it was dense and smooth. Their seminar sales will go through the roof after this, no doubt. If I had to pinpoint one useful point in all this i...

Re: Enter the Croissant

A tangent, if I may. Recent adage is that anything flour and sugar is really, really bad for you. Yet on my holiday in Europe couple of years ago I was struggling to get eggs and bacon for breakfast. In France, Belgium, Holland and Austria breakfast equals coffee and the variety of pastry. Yet these...

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

The question is, how strong do you need to be. Barbells are great building max strength, but that's it. Kettlebells are great for building strength to some extent, but they go beyond the point where barbells stop, which is cardio. What's more important, a 250 kg deadlift or the ability to snatch 32 ...

Re: Game Changers - the documentary

The problem with Joe Rogan discussion that neither of these two guys were capable of interpreting research, in spite of Wilks' claims of spending twenty thousand hours (or whatever) digging into articles. I dug out one of the Willet's studies, the one that "proves" that meat makes you die. It is the...

Re: Enter the Croissant

I am definitely a carnivore. Not exclusive, but obligatory. Lately, because of my muscular inefficiency in BJJ and training four times a week I found I can afford to eat a lot of frowned upon stuff, such as bread, white rice, potato etc, without picking up weight. Croissants are on the menu too. Not...

Game Changers - the documentary

I just realised this hasn't been talked about here (or I missed it). I watched it it on Netflix few weeks ago and managed about a third of it. And of course, Chris Cresser and James Wilks episode on Joe Rogan was quite entertaining. Cresser is too soft to face a bully like WIlks, and the latter mana...

Re: Why Aren't You Lifting Barbells?

Depends on the goals, as always. But I don't think you can go wrong with a barbell Easy Strength style. Light squats, deads, presses, increasing the weight only when current one becomes boring. 15 minute session several times a week. Having said that, I think KB ballistics get close in terms of bene...

Re: Britain's secret cyber throwdown with Russia

That's obvious reason. Perfect for the false flag operation. They could have killed him during his eight year prison stay in Russia. Easier and not likely to get a mention in the Western media.

Plenty of other holes. Anyway, the truth is unlikely to surface.

Why doesn’t it make sense? Well, it's been covered many times in many places. Starting with the motive and ending with the means and the way it was allegedly done. Why do you need to kill an ex spy who was convicted and exchanged? Why do you choose such elaborate means to do that? Military grade po...

Re: Brief praise of jogging

Another good resource is Andrew Read's Run Strong book. He goes into debunking a lot of the 'chi' and 'pose' stuff, although you may find that if you are just getting back into it, it's worth it. What the 'on the toes' style of running does is shift stresses. But his break in running program, which...

Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

Double jerk is the lift worth doing Yep, I'm a convert to the double jerk. It just makes me feel like a fucking boss, in a way that the snatch doesn't. And the jerk is easier on my cardio: in long snatch and jerk sets at the same level of performance, my heart rate in the jerk is routinely 20 bpm l...

Re: Mad about walking

I heard lots of stories about walking healing lots of problems. Usually it's people going on really long walks - tracks along the West or East coast of USA, for example. In the first several days everything flares up, then gets itself sorted. My experience with hiking (day walks) is similar. Maybe t...
