A few months someone posted the “biggest game changers” thread. It might have been called something else. But it was brilliant. I personally thought it was a great way for people to share their penny drop moments. To help each other avoid the same pit falls.
On a less profound scale - does anyone have any training or diet protocols that were surprising? things they did and were taken back. I’ll start with a few. More are geared toward strong man as this summer into winter I was doing a lot of strong man stuff.
Strong man fit is a thing. Its being able to operate at near max for 60-90 seconds. And it is brutal. If you want to try it - do a log, max reps for 90 seconds. Or a loading / carry medley. It doesn’t even need to be that heavy.
There is a lot of indirect work on the upper back work in strong man events. Yoke, log, stones, front loaded carry. All really tax your upper back. Front loaded carry and yoke the most.
The Texas Method is a great things to pick up for a few weeks just to change things up. for some reason people forget about full body 3x week.
The Axle is a really hard bar to use. The size difference is one thing and then lack of bounce is just odd. But its also the best. No gimmicks, no help. If you can do it on an axle you can do it any where.
You are never to strong for press ups. But you can be too fat for pull ups.
There’s a few of mine. No paradigm shifting information. But just a few moments where I learnt a thing or two.
