Re: Member is short short reping on WODs

Yeah, there's the test. If he is always under-repping and never over, it's much more likely that he isn't just losing count.

Re: Member is short short reping on WODs

This. Happens to me when I have to count more than about 25 reps for multiple rounds. Seriously, some people are just really terrible at keeping count in their head.

If a gym is going to post...

Re: Experience with Starting Strength

The prescription for SS is to start with weights that will result in you hitting your 5RM's in around 4-6 weeks. So yeah, you should start with weights that feel too light. It allows your body some...

Re: Experience with Starting Strength

It made my butt and legs bigger.

Now I look all thick and muscly like an adult male instead of being smooth and skinny like a preteen boy.

It's the worst.;)

Re: Cravings

Sometimes an insane craving is your body telling you you are not eating enough. Giving in and annihilating 10 Snickers might be sign number two.

I always keep an alternative on hand. If I really...

Re: Belts...

A belt is never required- it is just a tool. You can build a house without a hammer, and you can lift without a belt.

Re: Belts...

Look at the experiences posted by people in this thread that use a belt. It indicates a #3 that you are missing from your list.

3) Will I make more rapid progress in my unbelted lifts if I wear a...

Re: Belts...

This idea is flawed- it simply fails at understanding the role of a belt in lifting. Eric and Julius's comments on the other hand, hit the nail on the head.

Re: What do I need to recover better?

In my experience the line is about 1000 calories thick. I weigh about 215, I lose weight in the 2500-3000 calorie range, maintain weight with my current program at about 3000, and I recover well at...

Re: What do I need to recover better?

At 250 and eating 3000 kcal, you are undereating. That's okay, it's how you lose more weight, but whenever you under eat your recovery will suffer. You have to decide whether you want to...

Re: Questions On Squats

The abrasions can be from large knurling on a new bar.

I've had the abrasions too, but for me it indicates a form problem- that I am supporting the bar with my wrists at some point. The bar...

Re: Perfect SS Diet

And since it came up earlier, when I say I tried 4000 per day clean calories, I mean strict paleo clean. No milk. It was like trying to get drunk on Near Beer.

Re: Perfect SS Diet

For a reference point, I'm 6'2", went from 185 to 225 in three months with no less than 4000 calories a day, and gained about 60/40 muscle/fat. If you're not young and not skinny, you don't eat like...

Re: Perfect SS Diet

Hmm, about 10x the amount you were eating when you took that avatar picture. Seriously you look young and skinny. You are an ideal candidate for SS with GOMAD and the see food eat food diet.

Re: Back Squat Critique

And my challenge is not that these tools can't work at all, but that their effectiveness be considered with regard to the more conventional programming. In other words, if 4 weeks of BOSU balls add...

As with so many things in life, practicing with inflatables won't get you prepared for natural surfaces.

For example, I can get down in the bottom of my squat (unweighted and barefoot) and maintain chest up,...

Re: barefoot squatting

Yes! Exactly right! Barefoot squatting is like communism- the Russians tried it, it provided suboptimal results, so it is not used.
