Re: Fitness professionals in their 40s

Was Bell this annoying and pretentious when you met him? I used to think his podcast was pretty good and usually fun, but the last few months he's been insufferable with few exceptions. In person he's a solid humble guy. I think the BB thing might be challenging his humility reflexes....I can sort ...

Re: If you know how many guns you own, you don’t have enough guns

But it grates on me to get lectured on this subject, especially with cutesy-talk, by a fat slob who has apparently never been there or done that. This is my problem too. Same with any self-defense instructor- many of which have never even seen a real fight between grown men. Watching videos does no...

Re: Wild Wild Country on Netflix

The book, Cults in Our Midst by Margaret Singer (referenced in the article) is fascinating reading for anyone who wants to understand more about this fuckery.

Re: Is it stupid?

To join a BJJ school at the age of 55? I marvel at the agility of wrestlers, but is it reasonable to try to do it at my age? Advice? I started at 54. Just got back from an intensive training camp in Costa Rica. I’m still a very new beginner, though I have 40 years experience in martial arts (previo...

Re: What's volume training?

Oh and Rip blabbers on about training athletes...I'd chose him over Defranco any day. That was sarcasm. That's one thing that irritates me about Rippetoe. He knows exactly how to fix all sports (it's squat, bench and power clean three times a week) without ever training athletes. A while ago I made...

Re: What's volume training?

Speaking of which... About a year ago (I think) I was listening to the Mike Matthews podcast - Muscle for Life. The guest was Mark Rippetoe and the topic - training for older lifters. His opinion - as always unshakeable - was that older trainees don't handle volume well and that sets of ten is abou...

Yeah, power ballads and all that crap, but I remember delivering a car from Norfolk to San Francisco back in 1982, and all I had other than the radio, was a cassette tape of them with this song on it. Awesome driving tune, stumbled onto the old video. Guitarist could shred. https://m.youtube.com/wa...

I know they used to be friends, but I saw a post on wendler's instagram referring to PC as a "fitness fruit" and made reference to an Ashley Madison profile, which got a few laughs. Int...

Agreed. I laugh under the assumption that no one was seriously hurt.

That woman was something else. The spotters deserve a medal for not losing it.

Seattle was Patient Zero..CF AFFILIATE #1 (now defunct) was CrossFit North.
