Re: Max recoverable volume - thoughts?

I used the working theory of 5:4:3 for ratio of bench to squat to deadlift. I now approaching 60 am more 4:3:2. I have an extensive training history and am over 200lbs. Using Alex Viada’s stuff, I am challenging my beliefs in order and frequency of lifting/conditioning done frequently. Doing someth...

Re: Cluster set training

A much smarter fellow than me went through the research..... https://athleticlab.com/cluster-training-by-ivan-jukic/ All in all, we can say that if minimizing fatigue-induced changes in velocity is not of paramount importance, cluster-set structures can be designed to use greater loads for a given n...

Re: The Rhino on Recovery

BD, what do you think about this: https://www.strongfirst.com/daily-dose-deadlift-plan/ To me, seems like a reasonable lifting program to follow on top of doing other sport, in my case BJJ. Right? Wrong? I know, anything from Dragondoor or Strong First is irritating by affiliation, but this seems o...

Re: The Magical Rest Week

Most rest weeks in strength and power sports feel like dog shit. The week after often does as well. I honestly see no rhyme or reason to them other than, they are needed....but they are to be endured at best.

Re: The Rhino on Recovery

Find stronger people and do zone 2 cardio. A Lot. Train at something* every day. Let the volume do the work. If you have a question about how much volume is enough, you're not doing it. When in doubt do another good set over doing a heavier but suspect set. Ossicilate between periods of 6-8 weeks of...

Re: The Rhino on Recovery

More specifically, this will handle your base if you don't have one or the "base" you need for your sport is somewhat minimal. If that's the case....you need very little "base," you probably don't need to build size. If you do need to build size, this doesn't cut it unless you're ON or you're new. I...

As with 90% of these types of nuggets, the factor no one seems willing to apply consistently and thoughtfully, is time (or most specifically context).

Re: Only endurance exercise slows down ageing

Weight lifting in what I’ve seen in older folks fixes many of the visible aspects of aging. Seems like the endurance work fixes the actual aging.

Good argument for both.

Re: This is a thread about increment plates

My experience... When I incrementally add a little bit of weight (or little bit of distance on a MTBike ride, or etc.) it feels like the same weight but heavier. When I make a jump, it feels like a different weight. My relation to it has changed. The weight moves me differently when I move it. Does...

Re: Interesting Critique of Maffetone Method

The big issue I have with Maffetone's recommendations is everyone else's, an hour at 130-140 bpm heart rate is fucking tedious. I can't get there by either walking or rucking outside. I top out in the 115s with moderately fast rucking with a 20# pack, and fast walking is under 100. There are no fre...

did you ever monitor your hr? Initially, yes.

Last question, and it relates to the "everything is fun for a while" idea.

I.e., when any ill effects will make themselves felt? This is a hard one...
