Re: TheHappyBody.com

I think it depends on hip structure (genetics) and dose of the activity (martial arts, running etc.) over your life.

Re: Strong Endurance

You could use 1 arm long cycle. You would do a few reps (not more than 5),then rest until the top of the next minute. Repeat for however many rounds you plan on doing. You're training your aerobic system with the rest period, not during the exercise. You train the alactic system with the short power...

Re: Strong Endurance

Their poster boy for A+A training, the guy by the name Harald Motz (you couldn't make up this name if you tried!) posted his progress with 22 repeats of 5 snatches with 40 kg from 36 minutes to 29 minutes, at the same heart rate. This is increasing density. I think we are arguing the same thing. Th...

Re: Strong Endurance

It's much different from EDT. The whole point is to avoid using the glycolytic/lactic acid energy system. You use short alactic bursts and then recover using the aerobic energy system. If you feel a burn, you're doing it wrong. You reckon? I think it's somewhat similar. You progress from many short...

Re: Game Changers

Like the Mcgill Big 3, Andrew Lock (Australian physical therapist) has the shoulder Big 3 that I have found quite helpful. This is the only video I could find of them.

The aortic root is mildly dilated.
Keep an eye on that. Another possible byproduct of high blood pressure/ valsalva during lifting.

Re: Weight Training, Heart Attacks, and Strokes

I would say light enough so you don't perform a valsalva maneuver (holding your breath and trying to push out). Ryan, thank you for the info. Is what you're describing the same as Pavel's teaching about, when in the strain portion of the lift, releasing the breath through pursed lips and emitting a...

Thanks Ryan. So it's not an either/or, both resistance training and aerobic training have their place.
Exactly. They each have a role.

Re: Weight Training, Heart Attacks, and Strokes

As someone who works in cardiopulmonary rehab, weight training can improve heart function, but the adaptations are different from aerobic work.

Re: Weight Training, Heart Attacks, and Strokes

I would say light enough so you don't perform a valsalva maneuver (holding your breath and trying to push out). That blood pressure response could possibly indicate a lack of aerobic development. You might want to prioritize Maffetone style aerobic work for awhile. Holding my breath and pushing out...

Re: Weight Training, Heart Attacks, and Strokes

My cardiologist has recommended that I not lift heavy any more (if I was honest I might admit that this caused me to shed some tears on the drive home). I've got some "mild" stretching of my aorta. Who knows if this is from lifting heavy or just generally having mild hypertension. My blood pressure...

Pavelizer - definitely crap, but I mentioned it as an example of Pavel's knowledge of detail: contract the hamstrings - abs get activated better. Its the adductors, not the hamstrings.

Re: Check this out...the "Tank"

Here's a cheaper alternative for pulling, especially if you don't have room for a sled/prowler. You might be able to rig something up for pushing. For some reason, I can't get the youtube video to post.
