    If you’re looking to maximize your training, what’s the best speed to perform your reps?

    For my thoughts on this subject (and a fun new video!) check out the link below:

    Agree with you. I try to combine both rather often... they're both very fun and demanding.

    I don't know if I'm crazy about the new paint color at TSP...

    Did slow tempo chinups today... hate slow tempo, but I know why it works
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    Thanks! The paint is neither here nor there for me, but the bars still work just as good as ever.

    Right on - it's definitely a weird feeling if you're accustomed to a faster cadence.

    great topic. i love/hate slow cadence movements. they're hard, but they definitely let you know which muscles you're using. i can't imagine going slow on dragon flags.

    and, al, the slow movements, the beard, alone in a park...i don't know...that's just the teensiest bit creepy. i half expected to see the 'free candy' van in the background.

    Doesn't matter - the new paint isn't holding up very well, will probably be gone by the end of the summer.

    Good point!

    Any chance I might see you at TSP for bootcamp tomorrow?

    Getting rid of the momentum sure does make a big difference.
