    I started taking a weekly (normal) Yoga class and wanted some videos to do at home on my own as well. I went for DDP because I'm a "regular guy" and not really interested in anything other than the...

    Just a cheap one from eBay. (The proper type though, 4" all the way around). Works fine, but I'll probably look around for a good deal on a better one (probably lever).

    Well I had my first session with a weight belt today, set a new squat PR and it felt a lot more comfortable too!

    Great article Al! I've been working on handstands recently and had already figured out for myself that if I really tense up my core they become easier. I hadn't considered using the valsalva maneuver...

    I'm not convinced that eating (heavily processed) bacon every day is good for you. The guy above ^^^ has basically said exactly what I was going to say though, so I'll leave it at that.

    Yep, good point, I will make sure to do that. Yes, breathing is sorted - Starting Strength is my training bible (if though I don't use the program!)

    That's great info, thanks guys. I never thought about it like that. I will get a belt, but restrict it's use to my final work set (I also do 531).

    This was my concern. I'm quite happy to proceed slowly (as I've been doing all along).

    Could you elaborate on this please?

    Weight lifting belts

    Anyone use one? When I lift to failure now it's my core (abs on squat, abs/lower back on deadlift) that gives out first, rather than my legs (like when I first started lifting).

    I guess if I had a...

    This is what makes Insanity (and everything like it) sound like a poor program to me. Exercise is all about consistency, whether it's lifting 2/3 times per week or going for a run/swim every morning....

    Exactly this. Doing a lot of cardio or not has very little to do with it IMO.

    I looked into this myself a couple of years ago, but didn't end up buying one as they are pretty expensive and I thought the novelty would probably wear off quite quickly. I did a fair bit of...

    Just buy the book FFS. It's under $10 on Kindle Store. It's a great program and if you don't consider that value for money there's something wrong with you.

    You went from lifting weights 4 times a week to 3 times a week and lost strength? Something about this story doesn't add up. At the very least it suggests you aren't eating nearly enough. How old are...

    If that's your attitude I wouldn't bother with any of this stuff. Just get some pec/bicep implants, maybe lipo (if you need it). Much quicker.

    I've had a concept 2 for a few years now. They are great bits of kit, and even if you buy a second hand one (in reasonable condition) they will last forever. I use mine for warmup/cooldown around...

    are you saying that excess calories from protein go towards building muscle rather than getting stored as fat?

    Checked this out as I was in ASDA yesterday. Looked like crap to me I'm afraid. There were a lot of ingredients, including "flavouring". Why would you need that in high-quality chocolate? Do yourself...

    I'm not great at rationing myself so if I had it available all the time I would probably over eat it. I don't think there's a problem with eating (good quality) chocolate everyday if you can moderate...

    Greycat has it. It is all about conditioning, the same as all physical activity. You just need to take it slow and let your body get used to it.
