  1. My dogs flee my room if my CPAP isn't on/working.
  2. Imagine having to carry his corpse out of the woods!

    Kimbo's PR Log

    Agreed - but like you, I also think being open to switch it up is part of the best meta-routine. Stickiness and adaptivity - balancing viscosity and elasticity?

    Kimbo's PR Log

    I abandoned split routines about 12 years ago. Granted, my 'programming' is pretty loose, but I do preferentially focus my efforts on a given movement week-to-week (push/pull/squat/hinge/carry).
  5. Just gonna say this here: beating the shit out of yourself by demeaning your lifts is also ego.
  6. This is the type of thing I'd love to try in the scenarios you mention - traveling is a nuisance, camping is not in the cards at all. I really do not mind my CPAP because it is so beneficial, but if I could do without it, I surely would!
  7. Or you can pay too much for it as well: https://experiencenervana.com/
  8. I suspect from a neural recruitment perspective, the physics trumps the anatomical, but the anatomical is an important heuristic to work through in order to leverage the optimal physics solution.
  9. Minus some sort of loaded carry, if you are doing a full clean, this hits everything I would want to hit in terms of movements.
  10. I have to bar them out sometimes. The dogs like to stare at me and lick me and the pig yells at me.
  11. Boyle is also an opponent of squats, isn't he? I feel like doing these lifts properly might be a better answer than avoiding them or, worse yet, denigrating them.
  12. Front room of my house. Large open space. Where I do all my training with the exception of loaded carries.
  13. Had a near-ideal training day today: AM 30 minute dog walk Giant sets + Yoga: 30 Swings 44 kg x 4 10 Chins x 4 20 OH Squats (Bands) x 4 30 Proper Push-ups x 4 Extended Vinyasa x 4 Between each set after the Vinyasa, all L/R (First Set, Sequence 1, Second Set, Sequence 2, etc): 1. Balancing Sequence 1 - Natarajasana (Dancer) - Hasta Padangustasana (Big Toe) - Utthita Hasta Padangustasana (Extended Big Toe) 2. Balancing Sequence 2 - Vrksasana (Tree) - Garudasana (Eagle) - Tada Kapotasana (Standing Pigeon) 3. Standing Sequence - Virabhadrasana I (Warrior 1) - Virabhadrasana II (Warrior 2) - Utthita Parsvakonasana (Side Angle) - Parivrtta Parsvakonasana (Revolved Side Angle) - Shanti Virabhadrasana (Peaceful Warrior) - Trikonasana (Triangle) - Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana (Standing Split) - Ardha Namaskar Parsvakonasana (Revolved Prayer Twist) 4. Closing Sequence - Kapotasana (3 variations) - Agnistambhasana (Double Pigeon/Fire Log) - Parivrtta Gomukhasana (Twisted Cow Face) - Baddha Konasana (Butterfly/Bound Angle) - Paschimottanasana (Seaated forward fold) - Upavistha Konasana (Wide-Legged Seated Forward Bend) - Savasana (Corpse) (Typed all this out as this is by far my favourite sequence of poses) Baduanjin Qi Gong PM: Dog Walk - 40 minutes Loaded Carries (2x44kg): Farmers x 100 yards x 2 Press carries x 15 yards x 2 Racked carries x 65 yards BFR: Drops 30/15/15/15 - KB Crush curls (45 lbs), KB Skullcrushers (45 lbs), KB OH Presses (2x45 pounds)
  14. I have a Tek which is a) less well designed b) looks less sturdy. The neoprene has fallen to shit and it is always at max load because deloading and reloading it is a nightmare and tears the fabric further.
