Re: Question about following a "Power to the People" routine at higher weights?

Somebody Ping Jack to unfurl his Box Periodization model....It's an elegant way to describe holistically something we have been intuitively doing for years. If you cannot win by one means, win by another- DVS* (*probably stolen but cannot for the life of me find the place to attribute it.) Jack, pl...

Re: Is foam rolling a meme?

A lot of naysayers drank their contemporary pain science Kool Aid and said it's unproven or effective for different reasons, whereas it's oppositely astounding how the industry will still talk about knots etc. when it's patently false! People do seem to get something out of it - as do I - so I do it...

Re: Is foam rolling a meme?

Fat, has the discomfort come back? The issue I've observed - and many others too - is that relief is simply fleeting. The "conventional wisdom" for why they work has been scientifically disproven for awhile - there's no such thing as knots, and they don't roll them out. The theory is they work on ba...

Are the people being looked after or do you think it will get ugly? I think about some of those suburbs in the outlying areas of Waikiki.

Re: Presidential Debates

All I caught was Trump lashing Biden for not mentioning cops in Portland because his radical left support would dissipate. I thought it was pretty spot on.

Overall, hasn't made me more relaxed about the future though.

Re: The Social Dilemma on Netflix

In 2010, someone told me verbally, in person a relative was doing Krav Maga. Within 10 minutes I got a target ad for a local Krav school. I had never searched for it, or even had an interest. I thought it was odd, but kept happening over the next 4 years. Everyone I knew told me I was paranoid and t...

That Greg Doucette dude is just calling out liars like a juiced angry Gilbert Godfried and it's pretty entertaining. Saw one of his videos calling out the Athlean-X dude using fake plates. Gilbert Gottfried sprang to mind immediately. It's so abrasive to watch and listen to him, but entertaining al...

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.

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...

Sound advice in here.
