Re: Gslp

If you're not using the quick oats, just give a good shake before each sip and you won't end up with a bunch of sediment at the bottom.

Also, if you have a coffee grinder, obliterate them before mixing.

They were the Quaker Steel Cut Oats. I'll grab some quick oats tonight and try them.

Re: Gslp

Steel cut oats are a completely different thing. They typically need to be cooked or they're as hard as little pebbles. You want the plain kind that come in the 2-3lb cylindrical cardboard tubs.

Thanks
Wednesday after deadlifts and Saturdays. The FM burpees can be done just about every day too.

Thank you. What are FM burpees? Max burpees in a set amount of time? or just how many I can do in a row then stop when I gas out?

Re: Gslp

This GSLP doesn't really seem like a well-thought-out program to me.

Problems:

1) No rows or any other dynamic upper back work at all, but instead biceps curls twice a week?

2) The neck harness:
- training neck extensors 3 times a week with no work for the flexors doesn't seem very balanced
- loaded neck flexion-compression 3 times a week sounds like a cervical disc herniation waiting to happen

3) The nutrition stuff is just pure broscience. No carbs in the evening? Milk makes you fat? Please.

Also, I like how his e-book is significantly more expensive than Rippetoe's Practical Programming or Cressey's Maximum Strength, both of which are actual books. Or you can get Defranco's WS4SB 3 pdf for free and he actually trains real athletes.

He advocates barbell or dumbbell rows for people who think they need them, but doesn't think they're required for most people in a basic strength program.

Neck extensions are the main sort of neck strengthening work done by boxers, MMA fighters, and athletes in contact sports. Flexion is rarely trained, if at all.

He admits that a lot of his nutrition stuff is broscience, but it's based on what he's seen work/not work while coaching and consulting with several hundred people. I put more stock in that sort of experience than I do in most lab science. And milk is known for making people fat because of its lactose content and the IGF-1....just look at the feedback you'll get from pretty much anyone who's done GOMAD.
