Yes, I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum, but I searched in broad terms for this topic and the results were usually "custom" or "shoes" or "suits," etc.  I'm just looking for options other…Continue

I've said here before that the Stronglifts program is basically a mishmash of intermediate and novice programming packaged up as a beginner program, though I didn't say it in such kind words.  I'm…Continue

"Only if the vendor maintains a brick-and-mortar presence in the state (any state) where you live are you required to pay the sales tax.  I do not doubt that a national sales tax will come but for today that is the law."

Muscles accommodate to a specific type of stress ("habituate" or "plateau") when you continually apply the same stress to your muscles over time, so you must constantly vary exercises, sets, reps and weight to avoid accommodation – Fred Hatfield describing Joe Weider’s “Muscle Confusion Principle”

    

     Look at what the author is saying: “Muscles accommodate to a specific type of stress when you continually apply the same stress to your muscles over time…”  So let’s…

General vs Functional

Posted on October 28, 2010 at 2:27pm 2 Comments

There’s a lot of talk about functional training. In fact, this whole thing has been debated to death, and I’m about sick of hearing about it. However, I’ve never really put my own thoughts on paper so here goes.

Not Impressed...

Posted on September 28, 2010 at 3:22pm 4 Comments

The levels of strength to which modern day gym-goers aspire to is terribly pathetic. Having a 315 squat, 225 bench press, and a 405 deadlift are starting points – not feats of giants. Even still, most guys can barely handle half those amounts. Well, maybe not on the bench where everyone seems to be a stud. Anyways, who decided to set the bar so low? I see 13.1 stickers stuck to the back of soccer mom’s minivans on the…

Programming

This article is geared towards the novice trainee; someone who is wondering why programs can be vastly different yet supposedly yield the same results. It’s about what works and why. It’s what I wish I’d read several years ago.…

Cool, what is your fav. part of weightlifting? Mine is the feeling I get when I win over my body.

No not competive, Three men from my church and myself formed a weightlifting club, it is to encourage each other. I can only bench 300 lbs right now. 53 Inch chest, 19 arms, so still fairly new.

Indeed, it is urgent that we act and so we must lay theoretical matters for other situations - and keep hope that we will do good. But our actions are informed by principles of political conduct that force us to safeguard those situations where we can ponder.

Hunting Big Game if you Could?

So imagine a world where elephants and rhinos and tigers and other big game of the 1800s HADN'T been hunted nearly to extinction.  Imagine we lived in a fictional world where all the big game animals of the earth were not endangered -- they were all of least concern.Holding this vision in mind, would you find it appealing to go hunt them?  It's interesting reading all the Allan Quatermain books because at times, he tells of the hunt with great thrill and excitement and at other times he talks…See More
