Re: Wu Flu

Few random thoughts and thing I’ve learned from ‘the internet’ the past few days: Kids seem to either not get it or have very few symptoms. But also the less symptomatic you are the less contagious you are - so maybe kids aren’t super spreaders at all? As a dad of two primary school kids and a baby,...

Re: Coronavirus - the new hoax

Let's not lose track of what's important here: How to profit from this? Shorting companies that are especially vulnerable? Buying out of the money puts? Trading on volatility? I want to cash in before we all drop dead. The government is looking to bail out hotels. Anybody in the government own any ...

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

Wait, doing getups doesn't improve your press? I can't imagine wasting a solid year doing getups up to 32kg and not being able press the 24 more than twice. https://www.strongfirst.com/community/threads/s-s-press.15878/ Holy fuck I am amazed these people manage to get through each day without an ar...

Re: Decline Bench Press

Is there much difference between decline bench and weighted dips? Dips make more sense to me. Have never tried decline barbell bench, but that sounds awkward AF. Decline DB bench is alright but also a pain once things get heavy, specially if you can’t just drop them at the end. Dips are probably a ...

Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Current favourites are reverse lunges with dumbbells or kettlebells - much friendlier on the knees than regular lunges, and airborne lunges with bw or with a tiny dumbbell in each hand for counterbalance (2-3kg)

RDLs for high reps with a pair of dumbbells also, after squats

Re: Hip Strengthening

Lay down on a hard EVA roller, one leg at a time, starting right up the top by the hip, roll, rest your weight on it, then lift your foot up and down while applying weight, and work your way down to close to the knee. Pain on a scale of 1 -10? Somewhere between a laughing 6 and trying not to vomit

Re: Hip Strengthening

Have you done any work on your quads? I had knee pain for years when squatting, running, kicking and just about anything else. A run would leave my knees in agony all night after. Then one day I foam rolled my quads, and that was the end of two decades of issues. Lay down on a hard EVA roller, one l...

Re: 2020 Goals

I have to admit, with great shame, that I started S&S (-ish) workouts to supplement my BJJ. I don't like TGUs and my workout consists of one arm swings, one arm KB presses and double KB front squat. The goal is to get to at least 24 kg for 100 swings and press 28 kg with one arm for 10 reps (still ...

Re: 2020 Goals

keep progressing with bodyweight stuff, no big goals but just measurably stronger. Ultrarunning/walking has waned a bit, very few races in 2019 (on purpose) but will step up the game just a little - at least 2 50ks, 50+ miles in a 24 hour event and toe the line for a 100 again possibly. Also racewa...

Re: Jump rope

It’s self limiting. When you get tired or sloppy you fail and can’t carry on anymore. Practice for a short time then stop as soon as or before you start failing then come back to it later and only practice doing it well. I prefer just to rage quit and not come back. I worked up to being able to do ...

Re: Jump rope

Like I said above, there’s no point doing it beyond the point where you want to smash shit. It’s not like say kb snatches where you can carry on muscling through with bad form and smashed forearms. It’s not about strength or endurance (when you can only go for a minute at a time) it’s just coordinat...

Re: Home gym thoughts

On the bike, get a Concept2 BikeErg and it will last forever and be cheaply maintainable and the resale will be close to new price if you ever come to sell it.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

Translation:

Use a heavier bell for some sets sometimes.

Rest longer between sets sometimes.

Do longer sets sometimes.

Stop before you fail sometimes.

Push harder sometimes.

Go lighter sometimes.

Re: Two-Arm Jerk in GS: Really Worth It?

Is the double rack position really an ideal posture to want to develop though? ...particularly for average people with no goal of competing who probably spend most of their time sat at a desk or looking at phones etc

Iirc the original VF WKC fitness protocol was all single bell wasn't it?
