    I don't quite understand your description of these overhead squat lockouts. Are your elbows locked the entire time? You just sort of squat a little bit under the bar and stand up and what then? Just...

    I'm just at a loss of what to do. It was nice to just know what to do, to have a plan. No thinking, just do it. I worked so hard to get a 200lb squat, too. Turns out the gym isn't closed right now (I...

    I think I need a new routine

    Well, I've slowly eliminated everything that hurts and I'm down to pretty much not being able to do anything at all. What now?

    As for what hurts, pretty much my shoulders are ruined. I think I'm...

    I lift and I hike once a week. Now and then I do some kind of extreme hike. On those occasions I find I don't need to do anything special to succeed. I usually stuff some dried fruit and nuts and...

    My favorite pumpkin spice thing is a paleo pumpkin spice "granola" that I bring backpacking. Basically I chop up some kind of dried fruit that appeals to me and some kind of nuts, add some coconut...

    I either have a dairy product like yogurt, fish or some other kind of meat at each meal. Of animal products, I eat more fish than anything else.

    The best thing about doing squats in a rack in the gym, and not a smith machine, is the respect you get. Keep at it and you can push some impressive weight. It feels good to go in there and do...

    Jordan Feigenbaum who runs the nutrition forum on Starting Strength recommends doing sprint intervals of some type. He favors wingate-style over tabata-style. He says this is more effective for body...

    The use of bear canisters in SEKI/Yosemite has pretty much eliminated the bear problem out there. My bear canister has teeth marks from a bear. That happened in a car campground in downtown Mammoth...

    I don't count the swings. I go to a site with a tabata timer and wait for the beeps that tell me when to start and stop.

    Resistance exercise isn't the same thing as a linear strength program such as Starting Strength. A linear strength program requires a stress that forces the body to compensate by growing new tissue....

    Nice write-up. It was interesting to read what it's like. I don't think I'll ever do a meet. I think I'd be too nervous. I'd need a coach to tell me what to do and help me prepare.

    If you do indeed have adrenal fatigue, isn't a taxing workout counter-productive? So doing any exercise that makes you feel spent is probably not the best thing you can do for yourself and the...

    This is why the barbell people tell you barbells are better for strength because they are infinitely loadable at small increments. You lack the strength to swing that heavier kettlebell but have no...

    At my gym clips are required all the time for all lifts. Also they have a ridiculous rule that everything has to be done in the squat rack and you have to face forward into the rack. Even if you are...

    Pure raw strength will give you the most benefits for everything you want to do. If you don't believe me, give it a try first and then decide. Get your squat up to more than your bodyweight and then...

    I can't do it. I can get to my knees and then stand up without using my hands. Otherwise I can't get enough of my mass in front of me enough to stand up.

    I had low hemocrit once because I had fibroids that gave me a very heavy period. The only thing to raise my hemocrit was to get rid of the fibroids.

    I never had a problem with squats until they got really heavy. It's not every time with squats. Just sometimes. It's actually worst with deadlifts. It's super embarrassing. Deadlift day is the day I...
