    Resurrection of Blu

    I managed my time poorly and did not sleep enough. I thought I would feel good enough to train by the end of the day as I usually do, but nope. So, for the first time since the beginning of this log, I'm going to have to postpone a training session lol. Good news is I only have 9 more years of student loan payments starting today. Sigh.

    Mr.Kite is doing 5/3/1

    Well, it has been almost a month since I was last in the gym. I am going to start it up again tomorrow. We had a lot of fun on vacation in California eating foods that are either not very good in NYC (mexican) or are too expensive (sushi), so unsurprisingly I'm up ~7 lbs. I need to lose that asap while getting back to where I was last month strength-wise. I think I am going to do the krypteia assistance work again where I do normal 5/3/1 with assistance work for the other half of the body. This should make it easier to run every session. Since it is official that we are moving back to Germany (I got another postdoc), I need to get myself in shape to start climbing again by April. So I am going to tailor my training towards that goal. This means that the most important thing for me is power to weight ratio and endurance. Those are my key performance indicators.

    http://suppversity.blogspot.com/2017/04/elevation-masks-are-still-useless.html Adel's article did miss this despite the publication date: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4879455/ I think if you want to use something that WOULD work, I would suggest considering a PEP mask. They are a gold standard for increasing FEV1, SpO2, etc. in Cystic Fibrosis.

    From the heim of Hölderlin to the welt of Wagner! That sounds amazing (although I know nothing about the University of Bayreuth, tbh).

    My prior postdoc was at the University of Tubingen, this one is at the University of Bayreuth, so we'll be moving to Bavaria this time.

    KBs and ropes will hurt you bad. Also, congrats on the post-doc and (semi)permanent move to Germany with your spouse. Hope you both enjoy living abroad together.

    The great belt debate

    I feel like someone on this forum needs to go to grad school. I nominate Kim because he's Asian and Asians are good at school. /Racism Or Michael because he's pretty. /Hog out or log out

    All good info. Maybe that means I need to go back to doing bike HIIT, but just not kill myself.

    I had thought of that as well but wrote it off thinking that the differences in partial pressures of sea level vs high altitude would mean very little to the musculature of the diaphragm. But now that you mention it, it would definitely have an effect on lung volume at rest, would it not? I don't like the masks regardless because they look fucktarded so my bias will always be against them

    I saw someone wearing one of these today and I got wondering if making it harder to draw a full breath is really the same as exercising at altitude....when the oxygen partial pressure is lower, the oxygen exchange in the lungs is lower...

    Well, it's a strong belief of mine that running, especially non-sprinting work, is in fact the devil and should be avoided at all costs unless it is specifically what you're training for. If there is anything else you can do, at all, I am of the opinion that you should progress better in both strength and endurance. Running has such a high impact and recovery demand that it usually results in meager results, if any, in other endeavours. I used to run 5k's. I did a lot of research because my lifting kept getting harder and harder to progress until it started getting weaker. I wasn't overtrained. I was only running twice per week. Still, my body was adapting to be a good runner more than lifter. When I stopped running and switched to rowing, boom. Huge progress. When I stopped the rowing, boom even more progress. But you need the endurance work. It is something a ton of us have experienced. It's up to you and your needs and I see you're restricted but I felt I would be doing you a disservice to not chime in. Even running just twice a week is 1000's more reps than what you do in the gym so just keep in mind that while you're running, you'll be a runner.

    I'm sold on it as well. I still use it for rehabbing my knees.
