Re: Carnivore diet post re: Dr Shawn Baker's bloodwork

I don't know that insulin is necessarily the issue. But I absolutely agree that modern life makes calorie control insanely difficult for some people. And it is clear that some bodies have an easier time with this than others. Counting calories is one way. But if you do not have standardized cooking ...

Re: Carnivore diet post re: Dr Shawn Baker's bloodwork

Are there any well researched benefits to a ketogenic, actual blood markers that have moved in a positive direction, disease reversal, etc? I know tons of people are having good results with weight loss with the diet, but is that simply due to it being a diets that eliminates most people's trigger ...

Re: Been eating 95+% Meat, Fish and Eggs for 8 months

"You know...I did this last year. I essentially did a meat only diet during most of the week most weeks. This was solely for personal not diet reasons.

Re: Been eating 95+% Meat, Fish and Eggs for 8 months

What kind of martial arts? It makes sense. Repeated explosive power efforts..... Judo and Muay Thai, mostly. I can see both of those being really difficult on a serious low carb keto diet. Any significant cardio-esque effort is hard. At least for me. Yesterday I was at the gym and I hadn't had a ca...

Re: Been eating 95+% Meat, Fish and Eggs for 8 months

When it comes to meat only/keto low carb diets and exercise. For me - Low level cardio (think 120-130 beats per minute) doable, but tough. I will get winded and tired on the elliptical. Jogging for any distance is hard. Running for distance is impossible. Maybe it takes longer adaptation times, I d...

Re: Pavhole's new book is out today

I haven't bought any training material in a long time, besides Furman's AoW, but I might pick this up. I wouldn't. This book is complete bullshit. 1st - I've got not problem with the idea that "sprint" training of some form is a good idea. I think it's a great idea actually. 2d - I've got no proble...

If you don't mind -
What is the central argument for why this is something that is for advanced trainees as opposed to a beginner protocol?
What is the basic gist? What's your takeaway? The good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful?

Re: Insertion into handle: Rudnev vs. OTW

Thanks, I'm starting to get it. I found I had to open my hand more when I start the drop, and then I can catch the handle on the fingers instead of the palm. I no way did VF teach to catch the handle on the palm. You caught/catch the corner of the handle with an "ok" type catch. The whole descent w...

Re: Insertion into handle: Rudnev vs. OTW

I think the difference between VF and Rudnev is the former is a physically gifted specimen, while the latter - very high level athlete - had to figure out lots of detail and is also smaller. That's why I think he is more specific in his instruction, while for VF many things are a given. I spent two...

Mon 7/29 Jog/run - home to 1st bridge, normal rest breaks, short accelerations during long stretch Great jog/run. Probably my best yet of the "season." Legs felt strong.
