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: Faleev 5x5 book notes

As hoped, I've moved on to re-writing my old material on Rogozhnikov, gleaned from his articles and (this was key) a board where he used to answer questions about this methods. I'll link all installments to this page: http://leansoliddogs.blog/2018/09/26/table-of-contents-rogozhnikov-post-soviet-her...

Re: Faleev 5x5 book notes

I've completed the Faleev series. There are links to all 15 parts here: https://leansoliddogs.blog/2018/08/29/p ... ey-faleev/

With Allah's help, I'll start putting up the material on Konstantin Rogozhnikov that I posted here a few years ago.

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...

Faleev 5x5 book notes

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?

I don't know what's gotten into me, but I have the urge to do Hindu squats. Is that a bad idea? (I am 43.)

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

This went GREAT! For simplicity's sake, I didn't divide them into teams--that will come next year--and I move the axe throwing, spear/axe pinata, and airsoft gunnery as separate events to a more secluded spot.

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...

Meaning that being overweight isn't lethal enough to show up in a sample of that size?

Re: Next week i must do GTO exam

Bill, this is really cool. When you say you "must" take the exam, do you mean literally must? Or is this like a recreational thing? This is awesome--I want something like it here, as long as the failures don't go to the gulag.

Re: 0 to 5 miles in 4 weeks?

When I did running sports, sooner or later I would hamstring tendonitis and have to stop running for awhile.
