Re: How much Zone 2 cardio for health?

BPM is deceptive. If I walk at a brisk pace v. light rucking (30 lbs) at a brisk pace, I will a majority of my time in both activities in zone 2. Rucking takes a lot out of me while brisk walking doesn't. I think Shaf's had some great results lowering his RHR with lots of relatively easy cardio. I ...

Re: How much Zone 2 cardio for health?

I think easy cardio is seriously neglected. Probably because of the popularity of interval training. The idea of achieving better results from training eight minutes as opposed to three hours a week is very appealing. High HR for too often for too long is harmful for the myocardium, especially for t...

Re: Flow State Triggers

Jiujitsu is made for shit talking but I learned over the years that having good relationships with training partners is one of the few a...

Re: Flow State Triggers

When I was a kid growing up in USSR chess was very, very popular. In the park next to my house there was a spot where benches were occupied by chess players. Lots of them played for money, and among those guys there were lots drunks with the ranking of of Master of Sport or higher. Most of them talk...

Re: Okay nutritional gurus, fish oil is now bad?

Liquid is the easiest way to get the dose. When I was a kid, at kindergarten every morning they would line kids up and stick a good sized spoon of fish oil into everyone's mouth. One spoon for the whole crowd, of course. Tasted like crap, but that was the routine. I am guessing it was a non-standard...

My predictions about almost anything are usually wrong. My feeling is Trump is going to get it. Which means he is likely to lose. As the side note, I find the outrage with Trump fascinating. From the first day in office whatever he said or did was interpreted as bad by the majority of the media. I t...

Russia wasn't a democracy then. It's not now, either. Democracy doesn't seem to get along with Russians. They like their authoritarians.

There are plenty of European countries that are democratic and progressive.

Re: Training the Fingers and Hands

What are the movements finger extensors take part in? Most lifts involve finger flexors, and I am not an authority by any means, but it seems the significance is of extensors is limited. It may be that they get enough training from secondary signalling from flexors. I get the idea of training opposi...

Well, so much for the amazing striking skills. Khabib was on level with him, and the takedown leading to that exceptionally executed triangle - which Gaethjie clearly didn't see coming - that takedown was poetry.

Re: UFC 254

Strangely enough, despite of Gaethjie being a champion wrestler his grappling in the octagon is less than impressive. There are more than a few youtube clips dissecting it. I think Khabib will go his traditional MO: take the back, maul him like a pitbull, submit. Gaethjie is a good puncher, and ther...
