Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Take a hint from Alan Thrall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYEVqa4C0yg Really? I think what he is describing as stiff leg DL is actually a conventional deadlift. Correct me if I am wrong, but this is the setup I have been taught by the Starting Strength instructor couple of years ago: start with...

Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Some folk swear by box squats. They hurt my back a few years ago, probly because I overdid things.

Dan John also wrote about squats from a sticking point. Also easy to overdo.

Overhead squats - fry the core with small weight.

Finally, double KB front squat is the league on its own.

Re: Jump rope

I decided to make it simple - multiple repeats until mild fatigue. 15 seconds on/45 seconds off. First workout was only 7 sets: something in the right knee woke top and started hurting, so I stopped. Gradually got it to 10 repeats of 20 seconds. Finished today's workout with 1 minute set. Nothing to...

This mitochondria stuff is an oversimplification. Anything that gets your muscle going makes mitochondria grow. Different load regimes affect different muscle fibers. Also, there is another parameter, besides the number of mitochondria, that Pavel missed: their oxidative capacity. Not every mitochon...

I resent the implication that I, as a clean athlete, would resort to PEDs.
Watch out for Russian "doctors" they have a bad reputation in the sporting community.

Re: hot enough for ya?

Australia is a large red hot continent. Mostly unpopulated. Severe fires occur on regular basis. Forests burn, the grow back, then become very dense. The combination of dry heat and eucalyptus that burns like a petrol soaked torch is very conducive for starting a fire. Once it starts it is very diff...

One of the examples of misdirection of action is demonstrated by the current fires in Australia. It's really bad this year, and most of the days air in Sydney smells like smoke. And so climate activists are screaming for the government taking action to prevent climate catastrophes. Michael Mann was ...

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 n...

Re: 2020 Goals

I would caution against being too enthusiastic with A+A snatches. Snatching without fatigue for 20 minutes allows you to accumulate significant volume and corresponding benefits. The flip side of this is that negative effects accumulate just as well and you can get injured fairly quickly. That's the...
