Re: Chad Ochocinco entering the games?

Ok, we were lost in translation. Your original post indicated "Top 11 offensive line" which means just the "lineman" who average around 6'4" and 315lbs. The offensive side, as you clarify above,...

Re: Chad Ochocinco entering the games?

Ok, I'll bite. Why offensive line? That's a goofy competition. Pick some DB's, LB's, WR's & RB's from the Superbowl and then we'll see what happens in those events.

Alternatively, if you insist...

Re: How to get big and strong WITHOUT squats?

Not really in a position to disagree (as mentioned above, I haven't, beyond a cursory level, really looked into the whys & hows of hypertrophy). But, 'bro science' or not, it sounds like the guys...

Re: How to get big and strong WITHOUT squats?

Thanks for the link to the Pendlay interview. Good read. I like how he distinguishes achieving hypertrophy between someone using performance enhancers (body building routines) vs. someone going...

Re: How to get big and strong WITHOUT squats?

True, this has a O-lift slant to it which addresses strength/power/explosiveness/coordination but not specifically addressing hypertrophy. And the OP is looking to get big & strong. Sharing this...

Re: How to get big and strong WITHOUT squats?

Whenever I have training questions, I first dig around to see if Dan John has a take on it, then go from there. I've never met him, but from what I've read/seen he's my go to coach for most things...

Re: six week strength gain/weight loss programming

It is possible, but probably not through caloric deficit. If your diet composition has lots of room for improvement, 6lb of loss is not unheard of while getting stronger with a marked improvement in...

Re: Concept 2 Model B

$200 is little high for a model B unless it's in great shape and hasn't been used much. Model B's stopped being made in 93, so it's probably close to 20 years old.

I had the same question a few...

Re: What would you consider the perfect ratio of your max lifts?

Thanks for that link. I did a quick calculation for the RAW, DRUG TESTED, ALL BENCH PRESS, SQUATS (WITHOUT WRAPS), AND DEADLIFT world records. I excluded the SHW class because I was not able to...

Re: From charlespoliquin: The "Functional" Training Delusion

Although that is the opening line, it's kind of a "gotcha" because it proves the assumption that most readers will falsely distinguish between "functional" and "traditional" but in reality functional...

Re: From charlespoliquin: The "Functional" Training Delusion

Erick's basic thesis isn't that one type of movement (single or multi-joint) is better than the other universally, but that both can be "functional" depending on what you are trying to get out of...

Re: Rotational Exercises: Not represented in CrossFit

Along the same lines of thought, lateral movements also tend to be less represented. Here's a thread with some good ideas to incorporate more lateral...

Re: Rotational Exercises: Not represented in CrossFit

Perhaps the reasoning behind rotational movements not coming up much on mainsite is more of a cost/benefit rationale. The exercises that usually come up are the "most bang for your buck" in terms of...

Re: Flaking Chrome, Friction??

Or it might have been in a crash, bending it some, which could also explain why the chrome flaked off. Roll on the floor and eye ball if it looks true, if you haven't already.

Re: Breaking up reps

Can't speak for Jamie, but I think "better" is relative to the training response you're trying to achieve. If the only goal you have is to finish with a faster time, then it doesn't matter how you...

Re: Athlete's size and their pullup ability.

True for female gymnasts, maybe not for males. Here's a statement from the U.S. Olympic Committee:

"Unlike women gymnasts who peak in their mid teens,
men gymnasts peak in their late teens-mid...

Re: Athlete's size and their pullup ability.

Here's a couple more thoughts related to size vs. fitness:

1.) It seems that after some time doing crossfit, many gravitate toward strength programs (SS, CFSB, CFFB, MEBB, 5/3/1, etc.) either for a...

Re: Athlete's size and their pullup ability.

I disagree with this, only because I'm "big".;) But again, how big is big? Ok, nevermind, this brings us back to that relativity BS. But seriously, I doubt many people on earth are much "fitter"...

Re: Athlete's size and their pullup ability.

Ok, but the guy weighing 250 going up vertically 500 ft. is doing the same amount of work as a 125 lb guy going up 1000 ft. So, what measures "the most fit"? The amount of work done in a given...
