Re: Strong Endurance

Something relatively new in endurance training: MegaRepeats Looks interesting. Cross-post from Smet's site: Awesome, I'm signing up as Guinea Pig #1.

What about some upper back exercises you like? Beyond the usual rows and chins?
Front squats, snatch grip Romanian deadlifts and Karwoski rows FTW!

And scientifically, sex is completely unnecessary to reproduce now. Just a need a turkey baster and a volunteer donor.
In the same vein, scientifically too, legs and teeth are completely unnecessary too. All is needed is an electric wheelchair and a blender. :finga:

Re: Is it all diet from here on in? What's left to learn in training techniques?

The problem is, studying sports methodology is relatively easy: there is no shortage of experimental subjects and conditions are pretty easy to control. In nutrition, on the other hand, any kind of experiments are very hard - compliance is poor, subjects are not as motivated, hunger is a strong det...

Re: Is it all diet from here on in? What's left to learn in training techniques?

I believe Mr. Weck would like a word. JMO, but there's a fair bit of not-remotely-perfected material on optimizing for the over-40/50+ set. I agree. Very little research and material on how to coach/train older folk who want more than average results. All the serious material is for people preparin...

Overall, I like the general direction you are going. The specifics of your particular approach not so much.

Re: "The Boys" on Amazon Prime

Ennis' distaste for typical superhero tropes is well known. Ergo him doing The Preacher and The Boys, and also Crossed. IMO The Boy's is a realistic extrapolation of how the whole super hero thing would pan out, corruption, perversion, etc You should give Marshall Law a try. It's brilliant and clev...

Re: "The Boys" on Amazon Prime

How is it something fundamentally different from Watchmen or some of the other meta-hero works that have come before it? The main difference is that Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Frank Miller and Grant Morrison truly love the superhero genre and, after they deconstructed it, they created some beautiful ...

The problem I have is that in my heart of hearts I do not believe that doing this would lead to much different results than just doing 6 to 10 sets of heavy swings, 10 on the minute. https://media.giphy.com/media/RrVzUOXldFe8M/giphy.gif We don't know whether this Q&D really works or not.

I am not claiming this one hundred percent, but. I think the whole Strong Endurance is based on the work of Viktor Selouyanov.

So. The book is not bad. It is an interesting program with interesting promises. My shoulders don't allow me doing heavy snatches, so I am going to stick with what I am currently doing.
