Re: Phil Daru/Daru Strong

The idea of plyometrics is to trick the muscle into contracting at considerably higher power than is possible with the traditional, conscious effort. To do that plyo makes use of the stretch reflex: if a tendon is stretched suddenly the Golgi body activates the contraction of the muscle, at the same...

Re: Where did all the real niggas go?

The best business is to tell people how to make money. Most successful websites, podcasts and youtube channels do just that. Earning money by telling people how to make money. Best fucking thing.

Re: Strong Endurance

I'd much rather do MetCon with kettlebells. Quicker and packs more of a punch
Depends on the goals, as per previous two pages of the thread.

Re: Reload by Pavel

I must say, Pavel's writings are enjoyable more often than not. He likes theory, which connects with the nerd in me. Dick sucking atmosphere on Strong First (on top of PC) is nauseating though. The only more nauseating place for me is Starting Strength forum.

Re: Strong Endurance

True, that place is super secretive. And their free handouts are pretty slim, considering what others put out. At the end of the day it comes to this: 1. Estimate MAF HR = 180 - age 2. Choose 1 - 5 lifts that get your heart rate up 3. Lift until your HR gets to MAF 4. Rest until HR goes down to MAF ...

Re: Meat only, keto etc

Dietary idiocy is strong. I am as amused as you are. Joe Rogan is partially to blame for the proliferation of keto diet: he converted after the interview with Mark Sisson and keeps raving about the effects since. Usual reasoning: "humans were designed to eat _____ therefore everything else is not na...

And how amazing was UFC236? Both main fights kept me on the edge for the entire time. And an interesting result in the prelims, Nikita Krylov beating Saint Preux.

Re: Strong Endurance

I tried this today, except with 20 kg... Snatching more or less on the minute, depending on my heart rate, which I tried to keep under 130. It's quite interesting actually: aerbic system switches on with a bit of a delay, about ten minutes. So durther into the workout the heart rate tends to stay lo...

I've been lurking on Strong First forum and website. Strong Endurance is kept in deep secret, to the point of actually being funny. I guess they will milk everything out of seminars and then come out with the book. In any case, the method is not that complicated. I went once more through Khozhurkin'...

On paper it was! One of the central slogans: Власть народу, земля крестьянам! (power to the people, land to the peasants). Status vs. power is an interesting subject with many facets.

I am not too wound up on that. But since he coined bio-Leninism I guess I am stuck with Leninism.
