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

Commemorating the Labor/Birth of First Child

So my wife tells me the other day that it is expected of a husband to give a gift to his wife shortly after the birth of their child.  I like giving her gifts, and this is as good a reason as any. …Continue

Stronglifts 5x5

Started this discussion. Last reply by jameson Dec 6, 2010. 74 Replies

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

Right now I'm re-reading "Never Let Go" by Dan John. Next up, is "The Once and Future King." I'm constantly referring back to past read books for insight and inspiration.
My two favorites are "There Will be Blood" and "No Country for Old Men."
This is a wide topic for me. I listen to a lot of very heavy metal, jazz, and talk radio. I also am in love with the blues - the grimier the better, bluegrass and ol' time country.

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...

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…

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.

You are south of Nashville? Really? GTFO here! I live in Antioch (between Hickory Hollow and Lavergne). How far south of Nashville are you? Franklin? Columbia? Spring Hill?

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.

Kilts, yea or nay?  I'm of Scottish descent, I'm proud of it, and I know from a fact, by wearing a highland great kilt, that they're comfortable and functional.  What do you all think?See More
