Re: 1 arm chinning advice from Brad Reid

Second, you won't be able to complete a one-arm chin unless you are able to hang with your chin over the bar with one hand statically like an isometric -- up at the top of the chin range. I got to isometric holds back in my climbing days, but could never pull from the bottom. Did you ever try eccen...

1 arm chinning advice from Brad Reid

I've had this saved for years. I have a ton of shit that I've always meant to get around to, but just never did. Maybe you'll get some use out of it. You probably need to have a decent "base" of two arm chinning under belt first, though not necessarily 20 or 30 reps, but at least able to chin "casua...

Re: The Destroyer

Several thoughts... 1. It ain't no bodybuilding contest. 2. The heavyweight division is riddled with some of boxing's most shocking upsets (Spinks/Ali, Douglas/Tyson) simply because those boys hit hard and one punch can make all the difference. Joshua looked like he never recovered after that left ...

Re: The Destroyer

If it’s Destroyer v Wilder next who y’all got? Wilder may not have the belts for too much longer. Wilder's fighting Ortiz next. Ortiz has less of a chance of winning than in his last fight due to his age, but he's still dangerous and if he's a smart boxer will adapt his game plan. He could take the...

Re: Meat only, keto etc

I've done periods of keto, all meat and cyclical low carb ever since Mauro DiPasquale put out the Anabolic Diet back in the 90's. It was always for fat loss. I'm a natural born fatty and have been overweight since I was a kid. Adherence was not too bad, but eating meat all the time is no fun. I neve...

Re: cbd oil for inflammation

I see lots and lots of anecdotal evidence that it works. I don't know what the actual research says because I just never looked into it. A vendor at a seminar I went to (i'm a chiro) gave me a free sample of an oral and topical dose. The topical was pretty good at relieving moderate to severe muscul...

Re: Visualizations for Chemo?

That's terrible news. I hope he pulls through.

Why can't he use the same visualization? If it worked for once, who's to say it won't work for him again?

If he wants something new, how about the chemo is like a legion of vikings storming across a field to kill the enemy [the cancer cells]?

Re: End of an Era

Truly sad. I saw Motorhead for the first time in Grand Rapids MI in 2008. Just fucking unbelievable. I had the opportunity to see them a few more times after. I think the last was 2013 or 2014. Not the original lineup, but a bunch of maniacs nonetheless.

Re: GGG/Alvarez

I was OK with the draw I guess. Canelo did land a lot of good shots, even if GGG walked through them, they still landed. Couple uppercuts, couple overhand rights. I think GGG controlled the whole fight, landed his jab consistently and landed some good power shots. All the while backing Canelo into ...

GGG/Alvarez

No one's talking about it?

I had GGG with a slight advantage, but it was so close I wouldn't argue too much with people putting Alvarez on top.

The judging was horrendous however and highlights the corruption in boxing.


Can't wait for the re-match.

Re: Lets talk boxing

GGG/Canelo - tough call. I want GGG to win, but he's getting old(er). Alvarez has been in a huge number of fights since he turned pro. At 27 he's had 51 fights. That's a lot of shots to the dome. TBI's being what they are I wonder how slow he is from all that beating? He's still an animal and his yo...

Re: Lets talk about the opioid crisis

To me this topic brings an interesting parallel: guns. Pretty much all the arguments can be used for both opioid and gun control. Guns kill, opioids kill. Both can do good if used appropriately and responsibly. If opioids prescription should be limited so should be the sale of guns. Conversely, if ...
