Re: A Simple and Balanced Strength Program

Looks good to me... I wouldn't start with the heaviest load possible, but 10-15% below that and work your way up to give yourself some starting distance. Sounds like you've already been doing this...

Re: most complete exercises/programs for every muscle

You want a separate program for shoulders, a program for knees (?), a program for back, a program for ankles and wrists (?). I'm starting to wonder if you're not just trolling us. We have spoon fed...

Re: most complete exercises/programs for every muscle

Re: most complete exercises/programs for every muscle

Attached is an illustration of what Blair is talking about. But to put it as simply as I can: You can't train bodyweight endurance (SEALS) and bodyweight strength (gymnastics) at the same time. ...

Re: most complete exercises/programs for every muscle

I too am confused why you're doing a navy seals program which would be geared more toward muscular endurance, but not really toward bodyweight strength. Take a look at the training protocol from the...

Re: Fasting: yes or no?

You do see the irony here that some guy on an internet forum citing a study that he can't name or describe from a book that none of us are likely to own or buy isn't very compelling either, right? I...

Re: How I went from 1 to 20 dips and 8 to 20 pullups in only five weeks
