Re: I think these guys may be on to something!

Re: Vegetarian Zone.....

Is DHA from algae worth it?

I'm a vegetarian and don't eat fish. I take flax oil to get omega-3 fats, but that is primarily ALA - which a fair bit of research (much of it discussed here) suggests is less beneficial than EPA and...

Re: My ugly power clean

One thing I found helpful in getting the right deadlift form is the idea that your shins should remain vertical - try not to let your knees go in front of your ankles. When your knees go in front of...

Re: Weightlifting Shoes: What they are, why you need them, and where to get them

Thanks for the informative post.

Re: Zone Snacks on Long Endurance Rides -Suggestions??

I agree with others who've said (or suggested) that just getting in the calories in a form your body tolerates is the key thing. It can work even if it's not perfectly zone.

That said, there are...

Re: Food Timeline

That's cool. Thanks.

Well, a true paleolithic diet wouldn't involve any domesticated animals or plants...which is a bit tricky.

Re: Pull Up Goal

I learned to to pullups (pre cross fit) by using an assisted pullup machine, like a gravitron. I think using elastic bands would be similar. You just make it easier so you can do a few pullups, then...

Re: Intensity and Form and a Defense of Speal
