Re: O'Diesel!!!!! - JR O'Dell's Log

Re: How do I train an overweight friend?

For me, it was Deads, then squats (front and back), then pretty much any lifting over ANYTHING else. Still is, for that matter.

And in a bizarre kind of way - I love Fight Gone Bad and Angie,...

Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

Odd. I don't have small hands and I can grip the men's bar just fine for everything but snatches - but the women's bar just FEELS better. For me, anyway. Eh - to each his - or her - own!

Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

All you have to do in February is qualify, and I KNOW you can do that with the numbers you're putting up. Relax, rest, get better - and you'll be just fine. Take a week to rest. You'll spend a...

Re: How do I train an overweight friend?

Also to add - when I started my numbers weren't much different from your friend's. I used the heck out of the BrandX scaling, and it was phenomenal. That board is an excellent resource, and I...

Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

The woman's bar is better than the man's bar. I don't even know why, I just know that it is. It's not even a weight thing, I suspect it's the grip.

Re: 8 reasons carbs help you lose weight

I know a woman with Type 2 Diabetes whose nurse told her to eat 80g carbs with each meal to keep her blood sugar in check. She tells me that and then says: "And I've been doing that, but my blood...

Ogod. Because Tamara's probably busy spitting nails or grinding something into powder (bones to make her bread - are bones paleo?), I'll try to field this one, at least in part.

Re: My Box is doing a 30 day paleo challenge...

I also find that while paleo is tasty and delicious, when I'm hungry on paleo I'm REALLY hungry, where when I'm hungry not-on-paleo I'm just hungry. Rebecca's probably MORE right - in that it's...

Re: Biggest Pet Peeve

It drives me out of my mind insane when I go to the squat rack at a globo and the weights are all racked out of order, mixed up, and lightest to heaviest instead of vice versa.

I end up having to...

Re: Grocery Cart Judgement

I try not to judge, because mostly I look at processed foods and sugars and think: "Mmmmm. Delicious. Bad for me, terrible, but so so tasty. Chocolate, how I miss you."

Re: EliteFTS Article on Lifting for Women

The only problem with Starting Strength is that it's BORING if you're not constantly making PRs. Does she know how to do the lifts? If not, she might want to spend some time with a good coach...
