Re: smart computer guys, question

I'll be doing a lot of traveling out of country in the next year. Do I need a VPN? My central concern is that I have my bank and brokerage on the phone. Will a good VPN provide a level of safety? If so, what's a good one. I'm looking at NordVPN and ExpressVPN. If you want to be REALLLLY safe, make ...

Re: Pavhole on Rogan

another peculiar fact: there is not a single interview with Pavel in Russia, only translations from Western sources, even though his books have been translated to Russian and his name is very well known in the fitness circles over there. This. Even on the Russian internet, nobody knows a thing abou...

Re: Home gym thoughts

Anyone has experience with buying adjustable dumbbell handles? My wife wants to start training at home and we're thinking of buying these since we already have olympic plates.

Re: Introductory GS Materials or Recs

Enter The Kettlebell ROP is all you need as a minimalist/kettlebell only training program. 3 days heavy-light-medium of snatches and presses/pull-ups. 2 variety days where you can do whatever the fuck...

Never mind. I don't have an agenda against Pavel. I like his writings and specifically the trend he is trying to set, getting results without unnecessary suffering. His Comrade Spetznaz shtick makes me cringe, but I guess this is his marketing image that he is selling, so whatever. Gay. https://img...

I ran a 100 mile race while doing long cycle -3-5 times a week. I ran one while doing Simple & Sinister 5 days a week. I've run one while doing a mix of both, plus body weight stuff.
