Re: tabata for HIIT ?

Even in the context of someone being in a caloric deficit who is also doing weight training, say 3 times a week? Low Intensity Aerobics Let's chose walking for this activity. Increasing blood flow to muscles help with recovery. However, activities such as walking to increase weight loss are ineffec...

Re: tabata for HIIT ?

Losing fat is all about your caloric deficit. So just figure out, if you burn more calories with Tabata or LISS. I would always go for LISS, cause it's easier to recover from it. Low Intensity Aerobics While is does burn calories, it equates to taking the "Slow Boat To China". It takes forever to o...

Re: When does cardio become detrimental to strength gains?

The main reason I am asking is because I have decided to start running with my dog instead of just having her fetch and Sprint around a whole bunch. She's getting older and I'm worried about her hurting herself sprinting too much. But she loves some jogging with me. right now we do about a mile eve...

Re: What weight did your grip first fail (deadlift)

Hi I'm a beginner to powerlifting and I still use a double overhand grip, because it's not failed me yet. I'm wary of a bicep tear Bicep Tear The number of bicep tears from deadlifting are remote. Your odds of being injured in a car wreck are greater and also, when I use under/over even if my hands...

Re: Big chest with OHP, Push Press and CJ only possible?

There are some reasons coming to my mind: he said he doesnt benchpress, but maybe he is doing other exercises for his chest, just to balance things out. When you mention russians as far as i know they follow more of a "get-strong-all-around" mentality meaning that they try to get strong at more mov...

Re: Cheapest VO2Max Tester?

Kenny, the average method works for almost no one. You continue to be vague in your response. I addressed the effectiveness of High Intensity Interval Training as a means of increasing metabolic expenditure, burning fat. Research shows and anecdotal evidence demonstrate this method works for the ma...

Re: Cheapest VO2Max Tester?

It's a long story, but the person who needs the testing has a metabolic disease that compromises aerobic metabolism. Having an extremely precise measurement of the workloads under which fat is burned (CO2 / O2 ~= 70%) and where glycolysis begins (sub-VO2Max) is critical. I don't think there is any ...

Re: Wireless Pulse Monitor for Running

I have one of those Chinese pulse monitor / oximeter wrist watches, and it works well at rest. The problem is as soon as you start walking it loses the pulse and to regain this during exercise requires you to stop, sometimes for a full minute. Does anyone make a reliable pulse monitor that you can ...

Re: Strength vs. endurance training

Hello. Today I read two different articles on some scientific findings from 2010 and 2012, which showed that if you trained until fatigue, then the muscles would get the same amount of fiber growth whether you did a 80% or 30% RM. It was the fatigue that mattered. So my question is, why runners don...

Re: Best back exercise in my opinion.

Yes back is activated in deadlift but it doesn't move the weight. Your back stays and should stay straight. Which means you're training your back statically ignoring totally positive and negative phase. Research You a clueless. Research has demonstrated that back breaks the weight off the floor. Ho...

Re: Best back exercise in my opinion.

In squat/dl/sldl your back doesn't move the weight. It's your legs that do job and your spine is hugeload of pressure. Deadlift Back Involvement The back is heavily engaged in the deadlift. Conventional Deadlift Research by Dr. Tom McLaughlin (PhD In Exercise Biomechanics) showed that the back beak...

Re: westside routine questions

The Westside programs are more for geared lifters. For raw lifters something like 5/3/1 or a classical powerlifting routine works better. Westside Westside does focus on the geared lifter. A lot of auxiliary work involves partial movement to finish the top part of the lift. That because the squat s...

Re: Start to address issues, or address issues to start

What I've learned now through playing squash is that I think I have issues with the muscles in the lower body firing - particularly my glutes. If I try to stand up out of a chair with my thighs parallel to the floor and my shins vertical, I can't do it. I wind up pulling my feet back more 'under' m...
