Re: Fair to middling

Thanks Odin, sounds interesting. The proof is in the pudding, glad to hear it gives you something tangible. I have never done anything from the western tradtitions - I find it daunting to try to immerse myself in yet another tradition. Chasing two rabbits at the same time and all that. Do you find i...

Re: This is the Fountain of Youth. Prove me Wrong.

Just a copy-paste from my log to further discussion/critique and illustrate where I am coming from: ------------------------------- The overall goal : Feel good mentally and physically. Be bodily unburdened enough to do whatever I want (or need) whenever I want (or need) to. 1. This means being able...

Re: This is the Fountain of Youth. Prove me Wrong.

Fats: Fountain of youth was tongue in cheek way of expressing bodily wellbeing, not to point towards a child or youth like mentality. Your point regarding the lack of cardiovascular loading for long enough is spot on. The reason for trying to get the cardiovascular health benefits through these oth...

This is the Fountain of Youth. Prove me Wrong.

Knowing next to nothing about anything, I am curious as to what you guys and girl(s?) think about the following routine. What is lacking? What is superfluous? How would you do it different? What is stupid? The goal is to check as many boxes as possible regarding allround health, well-being, inury pr...

Re: Fair to middling

Sorry to hear about your old man, Odin. I hope you are doing well under the circumstances. Your training seems to cover all the bases one could wish for so good job on that! It seems that the meditation/pranayama aspect of your training has a central focus. Any specific reason for that? What do you ...

Re: When We Eat

Until then - I will spend my attention and energy on fasting. What sort of fasting protocol do you think find to be most optimal (scientifically or n=1)? Intermittent, prolonged, fasting mimicking diets, keto protocols etc? Do you find (enough) value in any of these beyond maybe being an easier way...

I am in the process of moving some of these old posts to my new blog/website: https://indrestyrkeblog.wordpress.com/

This is also where I will post new posts, observations etc. in the future instead of here. So if you found any of this useful, that will be the place to follow me from now on.

Re: Enchiridion

The S&S template seems to be working very well for you. Congrats! I've noticed that you been doing "body flow" as part of your training for a while. Is it the Sonnon exercises you are referring to, or some other equally tactical shenanigans? And what made you shift to this from the JM? Also what are...
