His book, Starting Strength, is a bible for anyone who wants to correctly lift heavy weights.
I also plan to take his 3-day course for a little tune up.
I could write three or four blogposts about this obsession!
Last year I managed 9 full days on the track (Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow, above in spec E30) and this year will probably be the same, but the game-changer is my simulator.
Lastly, I am (slowly) working on turning my 10,000 word longevity manifesto (circa 2014) into a book.
No, I’m not willing to share the manifesto, but I hope it will be worth the wait when/if the book ever comes out.
Failure occurs when form breaks, not when you fall under the bar and the goal is increase the reps of those test sets each week.
I don’t possess the vocabulary to explain what this does to my glycogen reserves.
I’m obsessed with mastery, though, yet I consider that very inward.
Do not—repeat— do this if you don’t know how to squat and deadlift perfectly.
If you’re looking for an education, I can’t recommend Mark Rippetoe enough.
It felt horrible for a few months, but I’m at peace with the fact that I can’t FTP at more than 4 watts/kg and probably never will again (especially since I think it was actually shortening my lifespan, not lengthening it).
I will ride socially a couple of times per month, and find the experience fun and humbling simultaneously.
