Re: Fucked up shoulder

For now it is an ever repeating circle: get better, go train, pain is back, rest, get better, go train etc. Going for an MRI tomorrow, to exclude tears etc. Don't think I will have anything dramatic though. Can often mean simply not addressing the issue at the correct level. Will be interesting to ...

Re: Stranger Things

If you like 'Stranger Things', I Strongly recommend 'Black Spot'. I found the later to be a more nuanced, mature, and stylistic version of 'Stranger Things'.

Re: Of Pistols and BW Squats

I have never understood why people act as if squatting is some technical challenge. If you can sit down in a chair and get back up you can squat. Depends. A deep BW squat? Not so much like sitting on a chair. When I sit on a chair my knees never extend past my toes. In fact, if the chair wasn't the...

Re: Kettlebells for Running

Nothing really fancy at all Fats... 10 minutes of swings with a single KB around 25% bodyweight. For me this was a 16kg KB... Go one handed alternating or two handed, doesn’t matter. Barefoot, of course. Not a runner really, but found that this, or snatches, allowed me run longer, faster and without...

Netflix series ‘Black Spot’.

Kind of like twin peaks but in France, with a bit of X-files thrown in. It’s dubbed in English. If you can’t handle that, do not pass go. I didn’t find it a real problem as the rest of the production more than carries itself. This series is good. I don’t watch a lot of TV at all... My ‘discretionary...

Re: Vibration stretching

I stand corrected. The corollary - write a book. Self help techniques for back pain. There isn't much good material around. I just reread my diatribe and it seemed a little ‘shouty’... Please don’t take it that way. Despondent would be a better tone. Regarding writing a book for self help, the real...

Most or least? Neither. Nature is always evolving and overall, always a balance. This is my keep it simple formula...

Re: Vibration stretching

My view is that an aberrant pattern of physical tension (passive, active or perceptual) resulting in limited ROM and/or dyskinesia is indicative of a bigger underlying problem.

Re: Setting up a half rack...

Thanks for the reply Shaf. If I mount the chin-up bar out from the rack at an angle (which I can do with a bit of mucking around), It gives an extra foot of space. So that should be plenty... Not that I ever plan on kipping. But it will allow me to hang some rings or a TRX etc and still have space. ...

Re: Shaf's Ladders

For those interested I did a big write up of a training cycle applying a few weeks of Shaf's Ladders to a deadlift & floorpress superset template. I used 2,3,5-2,3,5-2,3,5 with strictly timed sets and sticking to the template. It worked well. It was recorded during 2014 in my training journal called...

Intellectual Dark Web...

From here it seems to be a scene that many IGx-ers would receive well... How many of you blokes watch or listen to the 'IDW' type podcasts? (applying the IDW term fairly generally). If you have, what are your favs? Lately I've been enjoying the guests on Rebel Wisdom, and most recently Eric Weinstein.

Setting up a half rack...

Brains trust. I have a question... A while ago I acquired a wall mounted half rack and some equipment at a stupid cheap price. It's a commercial unit 3"x3" with huge catch bars etc. Similar to a Rogue half rack but it also has those two mounting bars to the wall. Like this but with really strong bea...
