Re: Rucking Thread

What do you guys think about calorie burn doing this kind of thing? Someone said their appetite was through the roof so that might negate any benefits. IME, it's all about heart rate: I get hella lean (despite being naturally chubby) as long as I stay well inside the Maffetone formula (180 minus ag...

Re: Rucking Thread

I’ve tried a 10kg weight in a backpack and two 2kg dumbbells in my hands on a treadmill at Max incline. Good stuff. What do you guys think about calorie burn doing this kind of thing? Someone said their appetite was through the roof so that might negate any benefits. Do you think it’s a valid tool f...

Re: Pizza Oven

Built one in the backyard. Like building one of the pyramids, it was serious work, but it’s pretty @#$-ing cool. While it takes a while to get the oven up to full grunt at 800 degrees, once there, it takes about 90 seconds to cook a pizza. It’s this design. Recommend it. https://www.brickwoodovens....

Re: Kettlebells for Running

Well the mountain that I do most of my running on, the one I just posted pictures of in my log, is where they hold the HURT100 so it's on my mind but I would need to vastly increase my mileage before I would ever consider doing that. That said, I can do the course--or any leg of the course--any tim...

There was also major tension when French police got on a train in the same area (in Italy) and arrested some people.

The last one as good as this was Italy 90 imo.

Goal for the week: avenge wildbill and smash Croatia in the semis. If England win I will renounce beer for a year. If they win the final I’ll make it four years. Best World Cup since Mexico 86. Russia has excelled.
Odin, I think I’ll copy your goal minus the giving up beer part 😁

So if everyone jumps on the close your border bandwagon Italy will explode sooner or later being the gateway to Europe from Africa.

Just saw this. In my mind this place has been in a coma for a few years now. The good days are gone, unfortunately. It's funny you all mention it being slow but it's always fine for me, I'm in Italy though.

Re: Time pressed endurance training

Disagree on ditching the hill repeats, especially if Odin is over 40. They have been shown to improve running economy and speed. What I would do is rotate what you do on your medium run. One time do fartlek, another time add in some drills like mentioned previously and also progression runs are great.

Re: Why simply comparing U.S. gun laws with Australia's is bullshit...

Trying to simplify things a little might help. Could the reason these things happen a lot more in America than elsewhere be the fact that you're a bunch of fucking loons?
