Re: Joel Jamieson article How Conditioning May Save Your Life

Syaigh, I'm going to print out the Jamieson article and read it later. I went to the Jamieson article and did a "Cntrl-F" (i.e., "Find" function) for variations of "Stephen Seller", wanting to print and read that one as well on your recommendation. However, "Stephen Seller" didn't come up...? (Admit...

Re: "Weighted Walking" - Ruck/Weight Vest Question

Cayenne, that looks cheap enough that I'm tempted to follow suit. As I don't have much experience with weighted rucks (other than hiking/backpacking) or vests, may I ask why you want to try a ruck if you already have a vest? Probably because I'm a sucker for testimonials :happiness: As I wrote in t...

"Weighted Walking" - Ruck/Weight Vest Question

I have been enjoying regular weight vest walking for some time. I have a 50lb model from WeightVest.com. I would like to give using a back pack a try but I don't want to spend as much as Go Ruck asks for products. (BTW, in searching webz, I came across the "Load Trainer" which seems like a great ide...

I own a C2, believe erging is just amazing for me, especially given recent knee issues and inability to jog/HH Walk as I'd like. I have used the WaterRower and, as much as I appre...

Spiller,

I just glanced at your post.

I am going to print it out and digest it thoroughly, probably in the morning.

I might even take you up on the follow up question(s).

In the meantime, thank you very much for taking the time to help with that post.

This is what is most alarming to me: "I have improved a great deal but I have plateaued at an unsatisfactory status .
