Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

That's pretty easily testable, though - if it's just late-night pre-bed calories, any similar food should do it. Anyone have a non-ice cream low GI food they want to try it with? Dark chocolate and...

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

I finally found reasonably priced ice cream in Japan - containers, maybe about a pint (it doesn't have any size markings at all) of Lady Borden ice cream. I've been eating a small serving a couple...

Re: MMA, BJJ, kickingboxing--can i do?

For your other question:

- some schools break up the classes into striking, grappling, BJJ, etc. Others integrate all of them. If you're doing MMA training, you'll certainly want to have a school...

Re: MMA, BJJ, kickingboxing--can i do?

Most places will let you train without competing or turning professional. Just be up-front about what you want. You may change your mind later (competition is both fun and challenging, and really...

Re: 12 week Tabata project

Yeah, this thread is buried here. I guess it is a log, but it's so much more than that, too...it just seems out of place here and I hate having to dig and scan for it.

Gant - thanks. I'm doing...

Re: 12 week Tabata project

I tried a slightly different Tabata workout yesterday morning. Gant suggested 6 rounds, 4-5 minutes rest instead of the 8 rounds, 1 minute rest I was doing. I tried this today.

I dropped dips - I'd...

Re: Pistol flexibility help!

Nice suggestion Leonid. I was doing OHS the other day at kendo while waiting my turn to spar, using my bamboo sword to hold on to. It forced a narrower grip, which made them more difficult. I'll try...

Re: instead of doing 120 PU and dips to sub for muscle up, can't I do weight PU/Dips?

Thanks, that answers my question.

I'd just referred someone else to the Beast Skills page, where he recommends weighted pullups and dips to work for the muscle up. But I didn't have a weight to...

Re: instead of doing 120 PU and dips to sub for muscle up, can't I do weight PU/Dips?

What's a good weight to set?

For example, for a 30 Muscle Ups workout, you'd presumably do 30 pullups and 30 dips with weight. Should you go heavy, say your 5 rep max, or lighter and get the...

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

No Breyers for sale here. The closest thing I found is Hershey's chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars. Hardly the same thing. Cartons of ice cream don't seem to exist in my part of Japan.

But I'm...

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

This prompts a few questions

- Is it the ice cream itself, or would an equal load of carbs/fat/protein with a similar glycemic load have the same effect?

- Does it make a difference if you eat the...

John, thanks. I'll check that out.

Editing later: Hmm...the only place I'm turning up the is Isogai clinic in Tokyo. I'll ask my doctor friends here and see if they know any places, but everything I...

Re: Resting between Reps - when its considered a set vs. heavy singles?

Between deadlifts, I routinely let go of the bar and stand up. Every rep I re-check my foot position, descend to the bar and grip it and stand back up. I only consider the set over if I deliberately...

Off topic, I apologize:

Aileen, I've got some hip alignment issues I'm trying to work out. Legs are the same length but one hip sits higher. What kind of specialist did you go to to get your problem...

I don't have this problem, but here's what I do when I want to ensure my feet return to the same spot on lunges.

Put a pair of plates on the floor. Line them up evenly, and start with your heels...

Re: 12 week Tabata project

For some of my exercises, I don't hurt any more or less. For example, squats. My numbers are almost perfectly flat (Min/Max reps per round difference is 1 rep). For others, it gets hard quickly and...

Re: 12 week Tabata project

Thanks for the additional details Gant.

When you say "don't do them in succession" you mean all pullups before all pushups, etc. Is that correct? Not switching on a per-interval (20/10) basis to...

Re: Must it be 5-2 or 3-1?
