    What the heck is the thing they swing about 2/3 of the way through. It looks like a very long sledgehammer with a large round nob on the end?
    I was wondering the same thing. This ranch place is here in Northern California some place, I'm going to find out and see if I can drop by for a visit.

      Yeah, looks like a place that would make you really strong or send you home weeping.

        • Hmmph. I have a ways to go. Right now, maybe they might let me hold the camera, not be in front. Nowhere close.
          The Buck stops here. I am responsible for my past and my future. So for today: I choose to be happy. I will seek wisdom. I will be a servant to others. I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit.

              I hear you. I also think there might have been some "chemical enhancement" going on with a few of those seniors. I do believe that weight training can play a significant role in helping seniors maintain a healthy musculature and metabolism and greatly improve their functional fitness as we age.

              • Canuck man, as I've actually registered and got my account sorted after a year or two of lurking around the forums I just wanted to drop a post to mention that your steak and eggs thread along with the more recent part of this thread here have probably been the most influential material on this forum for me personally. I've learnt so much from reading and testing some of the things you've tried and reported on yourself. I think I'm going to try a strict Whole30 myself starting Monday, although I think for the most part (80/20ish) I'm almost there already.

                Cheers for all the info, ideas and reports dude!

                  Aw thanks StueyT, glad that it's been helpful to your journey! The current low carb Whole30 I've been doing has worked very well for me. I officially started on Jan 4 so over 3 weeks in and have dropped a total of 14 lbs. I had let my weight slowly creep up late last year, not by going off Paleo, but I became infatuated with creating Paleo friendly deserts and eating way too many of them. I realized, of course, that calories and carbs really do matter

                  • I've dropped 8lbs since starting to cut down on carbs/wine since the New Year. I have had sourdough bread toast & Marmite a couple of times and more wine than I should a couple of Saturdays so I'm happy with progress so far. I have a problem with the BBS strength training though as I pulled something in my right shoulder when taking a shower one morning. Saw a physiotherapist last Wednesday and she gave me some exercises to do. I see her again on Friday.
                    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.

                    • Great job on the 8 lbs of weight loss Nigel! Don't worry about the odd slip up on your diet, just remember to get refocused and start fresh the next day. Sorry to hear about the shoulder injury, I've had them before and tried to work around them but it seems that complete resting of the shoulder was the best solution for me.

                      • I've experimented with many forms of training - endurance, mobility, speed, flexibility and strength and it feels great to approach fitness from a holistic perspective. But nothing feels better than going to the gym and doing a great strength workout, pushing heavier weights and feeling the pump, still love it at 63 years old. All you gals and guys over 50 - Dare to Live Fully! Add some strength training to your Paleo lifestyle....

                          I'm sticking with the HIIT static rowing and Body by Science strength training. Started leg press at 140Kgs in November and about to go up from 180 Kgs next week.

                          Been naughty with treats/wine and and only lost another two pounds.

                          • Just a friendly reminder to eat local, seasonal and organic produce, free range poultry, pastured meats and wild fish when possible. Big Ag's incredible lobbying power over government has resulted in a sad state of affairs when it comes to the nation's food...

                            • Good article. Thanks for sharing.

                              "...consumers donít know or care who grew a certain apple or cucumber" If you have to advertise a 'food' then it's not real food.

                              "The profit margins for making a branded bar of sugar are better than for growing brussel sprouts" Unfortunate but true.

                              • This great article is an example of how the Paleo movement has been evolving from a focus on food to a philosophical approach to life. The "Re-wilding movement is another example of this process.
