Re: The Gray Cook/Mike Boyle interview back on the community board please

They brought up very valid points...I thought it was a great segment.

It would certainly be interesting to see Glassman debate with 'em.

Re: CAlves

My two cents: Did calf-raises and such (per Ross Enamait) for about 2 years during my earlier training and had really no running-related injuries. Then I didn't do any dedicated calf work or...

Re: GI Cindy - WOD I made up

Did a similar WOD - 7 Burpees / 7 Pulls, 20 minutes.

It was absolute hell.

This is a goodie, thanks for reminding me.

Re: Thrusters - why do they hurt?!

1) Lots of muscles involement- upper body, lower body, postural muscles in the core, etc.
2) The movement makes it pretty awkward to breath properly while maintaining form and tempo.

Re: Went from 156 to 171 in 4 weeks of SS

I gained about 40 pounds on SS over 5 months. (6'1 145 to 185)

After a couple months of metcon and less food, I'm down to 165-168.

My lifts are pretty much the same as when I was 185 (I was...

Add that modification and I would agree 100%.

And yes, I did the gallon-a-day for right around 5, 6 months, give or take a couple weeks due to sickness (during which I lost weight)

Re: Starting Strength Observations

Good post. I did SS for about 6 months and agree with most of the points. The difference in failing a squat v failing a press is interesting, and for the most part legit...although I've certainly...

Re: Commercial gyms amaze me

My YMCA had a clam-eating contest as a fundraiser.

Funny. I've never seen an organized strength meet for fundraising. Not even a push-up contest.

But a gluttony contest? You bet!

Re: Gaining mass too quickly on SS?

Psh.

I have a six-roll instead of a six-pack now.

If you're only planning on doing this for another couple weeks, full speed ahead, IMO.

Best of luck.

Re: Gaining mass too quickly on SS?

Yeah, agree with Julius.

I gained 15 pounds my first three weeks. But the weight gain slowed down considerably after the first month.
