Re: Planche. I did it at last.

That tatoo... I did not want any tatoo. Wife wanted to, but was afraid, so she asked me to go with her and do it together. Asked about month long :) I chosed place on body where nobody will see it. And now people in Hawaii know about it. Hahaha! Well done, Wild Bill! That's very impressive.

Re: Wu Flu

I spoke to my doctor this week. He's Chinese so I asked for his take on what's happening. I didn't know that he was practising over there in emergency units during SARS. He said COVID is definitely not as deadly, but with SARS, it never escaped because people died so quickly. He told me he'd show up...

Re: Suggestions? Stuck at 50 lying leg raises for months. Want 100 (yes it's a dumb goal).

Sound advice in here. If this has become psychological for you, or you're really hammering the exercise to no avail (although a 10% increase like nafod said is progress!) - you could try a conjugate approach - flutter kicks for time? band-resisted raises? Ankle weights like you suggested... There w...

True all that. As far as anaerobic infections are concerned - honestly I don't know. There aren't many cases in Australia, and I am yet to see one.
Crazy you're in medicine and you haven't crossed paths with Covid here yet.

Oh, I just put Haviland out there as an example of the types of lists I mentioned - as Bryant writes his training. Definitely not natural. And yep, that's the book, Fat Cat.

Yep, from cluster fitness NZ. Took 14 weeks to arrive as they order a container once a month from China. There’s a few options for buffalo style bars in Aus, the Goliath one is really good If they get back in stock. The cluster I think is a the same as Titan Yukon, knurling is pretty soft, and ring...

Re: Powerlifting USA Library

It is very interesting to read some of the very old late 70s and early 80s issues. It's got a charming, homemade naivete mixed with an all-in gearhog, more is always better fanaticism. And it's obvious that it was the gear, the money made from gear, and the advertising that drove it all, that made ...

Hearn, while I doubt is natural, is a definite freak of nature. He has held that condition for like 25 years. This is the funny thing right, the concession I make is he's been on top of his game for such a long time, those results are probably less down to juice than haters think. A 25 year old sup...

Reading early-80s editions and have picked up some pretty cool things to try. Dudes my age seem to have idealised this era though as being all bare bones, pure and raw. "They just laid down and benched, no arching!" But even when you look past the bombardment of gear advertising - you still see lift...

New in the Generation Iron franchise is Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life which hilariously features Mike O'Hearn saying he's all natural forever.

Re: Titan Safety Squat Bar v2

I'm about to take my SSB to the gym and let it live there for awhile. I've always liked them + bought a 2nd hand one before lockdown. The last time I used one regularly was 2013 and it just seemed like my numbers were always on par if not more than regular bar; which struck me as odd because I swear...
