Re: GS Sweat Management and Shoes

Are you specifically training for GS or just using GS technique? Straight-thuggin' GS competition, yo. I don't know what got into me--I haven't done GS in 10 years--but some kind of GS parasite infected my brain and is making me go the AKA meet at the Olympia Expo. Oh, wait, I know why: it's going ...

GS Sweat Management and Shoes

I've benefitted from changing to the Rudnev snatch technique, where you lay the arm against the torso as soon as possible, but it's made for one problem I didn't have so much before: sweat on my hand. I thought I'd solve that with wristbands, but it turned out to be more that when I touch my arm to ...

Of Pistols and BW Squats

What's the IG Hive Mind's opinion in 2019 of pistols? I see a lot of them in training logs.

Also, Hindu squats vs. flat-footed air squats? What does Rudnev use?

1. GORUCK Heavy Challenge (done. AAR at https://leansoliddogs.blog/2019/06/04/a ... ar-pt-1-2/)
2. GS Class 1 in snatch (I blame Smet for "emboldening" me. Isn't that the word of the year?)
3. GORUCK Star Course (= 50 miler)

Do they even have KB competitions anymore?
I've been looking for them--for some reason the bug has bitten me again--but they're pretty few. And yet on the webz it looks like there's no shortage of people who are into it. Seems ripe for those modern-day "postal matches" with corroborating video.

I have this vain dream that one day you'll have a vision of Mormon Jesus or something, and he'll command you to blog again as a service to humankind and make yourself the Pavel Tsatsouline of GS, meaning the English-language popularizer of Russian GS research.

Ideas for "20 Years of Pavel Tsatsouline" series

I’m doing a series of blog posts on “20 Years of Pavel Tsatsouline,” and I’d like any input that y’all bitchez have to offer, especially IGx OGs who were early adopters back in the PTP and proto-RKC days. The questions I’m chewing on right now are: • What were his big contributions (especially in th...

Re: JUDO: August 10-12, 2018 Budapest Grand Prix Highlights

FC, lately I've been watching judo highlight vids, and I've got questions for someone who knows his shit, and you're it: 1) What exactly does it take for a throw to be ruled an ippon? Even after some quick google-fu, I haven't found what I expected in the way of objective standards. 2) Has there bee...

Remember Alexey Faleev, the subject of Pavel's "80/20" article on Tim Ferriss' site? Years ago I plowed through his book on Google Translate and occasionally I've gotten requests to send some of you my shitty, disorganized notes. I've finally gotten off my ass and written them up for a friend. Anyon...

Re: Hindu squats: Are they knee poison?

Thanks, everybody. Shaf, Thomas Kurz's opinion carries a lot of weight with me. I think I'll try them, building up slowly and using Bedlam's variation.

VBX, do you think the breathing pattern has some kind of function for safety/form?

Re: Lighter SSB and/or Draper Top Squat

I have a Top Squat and I didn't like using it. Orthopedically I'm glad I had it, but placing the bar so high up your back and a couple of inches behind your body makes it feel very odd.

Shit, actually, if you want mine, PM me. I'll sell it to you for a song.

Re: Weird birthday decathlon

I have an old javelin if you want to borrow it. Thank you! I thought of that, but it seemed like it could get dangerous. The axe throwing and spear-pinata only sound like bad ideas, but they'll be fine as long as they're set up with an eye to safety, and the pinata person doesn't get excited and go...

Weird birthday decathlon

This week, my birthday party will consist of me and twenty guests doing a sort of light-hearted "decathlon" in the park: shot putting or shot juggling, 16kg kettlebell carry, cartwheels for distance, maybe some tire flipping or KB throwing, axe throwing, airsoft marksmanship, bear crawls, broad jump...
