Thanks OR, here is another one.

Another one from LRB

Quote:
A few weeks ago I did Ironradio and Phil talked about the fact that when he just missed his 804 pull, the heaviest pull he used in that whole training cycle was 625. One of the concepts discussed was that if you could go from pulling 545 for a hard 5 sets of 3 in 25 minutes, to pulling 545 for 5 sets of 3 in 15 minutes, with every rep fast and explosive, did you get stronger?

Well, hell yes you did. You did so through progression. Yes, progression. Doing the same amount of work in less time, is still progression. Progression isn't just weight on the bar, or rep PR's. It can also be doing that 545 for 5x3 in 15 minutes with ease, rather than 25 minutes of Rikers Island shower style brutality.
Quote:
The more work you can get done in the gym, in an appropriate time, the stronger you will get. This is not an area most guys ever venture into because they believe more weight on the bar, is the ONLY way. Eventually yes, the bar has to get loaded, however as I've documented from lots of strong guys, you want to hold off on these times as much as possible, and venture into that area as little as possible.

Quote:
It's hard to train on low/no carb when you really want to train balls out and hard. If you're doing some singles? Sure. That shit is easy. Not a lot of fuel required for that. However if you want to grow reps are required. Don't give a shit about the debating of that. Reps are required for growth, and so are carbs. As much as I like keto diets for fat loss, and agree you can still hit reps early on in them, eventually the bottom falls out with only one carb up per week. This is not an ideal environment for growth and strength in my opinion. It's also a time when both lab rats and meat heads agree for the most part. Keto diets are not growth producing environments. If your goal is strength and mass, it's not ideal.

Lifting will always be there. Don't miss out on the interesting things in life for some iron on the bar.

Quote:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
—Theodore Roosevelt

My folks got one of my football cleats bronzed as a graduation present when I finished high school. There's a pic of me that was in the newspaper behind it with The Man In The Arena on the back of it. Good stuff, Swede. Teddy was the man.

Default True Story

True Story. . .

Several kids were playing a game of tag in PE class at school. Among these kids were two young boys that are currently training to make the Jr Football Team. One is pursuing the other, catches him, and pulls his flag for the 'tag'.

Kid 1: "What the hell? You've NEVER been able to catch me before."

Kid 2: "Well, I caught you today."

Kid 1: "But I've been training, I'm on the track team."

Kid 2: "I've been training too. I've been SQUATTING."

----------

You want to get faster?
Then get STRONGER.
