Re: Pandemic projects (stealing from Schlegel)

I'm a lifelong minimalist (where "lifelong" = "about the last 20 years"). In that time, the base of what I've been doing is KB swings, ab wheel rollouts and some pushups. No gym required for this so I haven't noticed a difference -- I'm now just trying to balance out the swings and pushup volume. I'...

How much weight are we moving?

How much actual weight is moved during a kettlebell swing? Just standing with a 16kg KB for example, with no movement, the amount of weight is 16kg. During a swing, the amount of weight increases during the movement due to momentum and centripetal force and vectors and arm length and speed of moveme...

Re: Hill Sprints

My old high school track coach had a training tool he used to increase speed in his sprinters which was to have them sprint down the hill -- his theory was it trains you to move your feet at a rapid pace. Never really tried it myself.

Re: Do you even lift, bro?

Currently it's all maintenance with no clear goal in mind. I think a lot of people get into "fitness" on the advice of their doctors who say "get some exercise", so they go to a gym and if they talk to a trainer, they'll ask "what is your goal", to which the response is "I didn't realize I needed on...

Re: Take a walk

This has probably been here before: http://www.urbanranger.com/ It's offensive. Work, dammit, and you won't have to play work later. No, you probably can't kill a caribou for dinner, or plow a field, or do most of the useful work that your ancestors did for thousands of generations. But you can stil...
