Why do we cook eggs anyway? Aren't they better raw, or is that a myth?

I am a habitual Coke Zero drinker. Pepsi Max is OK. The only reason I drink Diet Pepsi is because it's free.

Best of the Past: Trainer Tells All – What I Have Learned About Health and Fitness

http://www.fitnessspotlight.com/2010...h-and-fitness/

Results are just the simple yet important things done on a consistent basis

Excerpts kottke.org lists:

Diet is 85% of where results come from...for muscle and fat loss. Many don't focus here enough.

If you eat whole foods that have been around for 1000s of years, you probably don't have to worry about counting calories

Our dependence on gyms to workout may be keeping people fat...as walking down a street and pushups in your home are free everyday...but people are not seeing it that way.

Is the best way to get good at accelerating over 5 or 10 meters is to do that lots of times? Or do things like plyometrics and ladder runs have a lot of cary over into this? What about max speed jump rope? Explosive lifts like power cleans?

Also, I get the feeling that out of all the things we train for, explosivness is most affect by genetics.
Basically "Oh dear god, no" because the guy is a hack trying to sell a product. He gets a lot of things right (a bigger engine will ldo mean higher speed if all things are equal - problem is of course that all things are never equal), but then goes all absolutist, ignoring technique training and the angle of attacking the ground. He might be right if he was training 10meter runners, but for 100m things are quite different. He's a number chaser in the weight room, who was gifted with a genetic freak in Allyson Felix. That's always good for business.

Acceleration is all about applying force and getting your feet off the ground quick, right?
Get your squat up, but the accelerations should still be the focus imo. Don't chase an exact number in the weight room, since specifik work trumps this. There is no definitive answer to what is needed.

Meh, it's debatable. It's probably good for injury prevention, but as long as there isn't any tightness in the ROM you need for the actual running it shouldn't be a problem. Research is lacking in this area, and there have been very fast sprinters who probably couldn't reach their toes, and then there have been sprinters like Linford Christie:

Heh. It's funny. I had a big rage over MSN last night when a friend told me her husband has been paying $75/week to a personal trainer for three sessions/week... Although he pays the full 75 even if he doesn't go to all three sessions.

I f*cking went off the hook over f*cking gyms/PTs and their bullsh*t. And I said exactly that, it's like it's better for the gyms/PTs for their clients not to get results because they keep coming back. Then they give up after a few months and the PT/gym can just say, "well, you didn't work hard enough because you missed a session here and there".

F*cking hate gyms.

I finished eating the last of my 7 lbs of self-corned brisket. The **** was amazing and I'm already thinking about getting another cut to do it again. St Patties day done right!! (one day early).

24 hours? How much alcohol in a light beer? (we don't have those ldo)

Sounds EZ.

Examples? I can imagine too much flexibilty perhaps being a problem in a sprinter but that's got to be way rarer than not enough. I need to search the Charlie Francis forum imo.

Re: **8*8*8 March version Two(2) ***88***8

I'm at around 115 kgs last w/o for my back squat (peaked at around >125kg couple of months ago before i stopped gym going for 5 weeks due to lazieness which has now passed).

My goal is to get 3 plates (140kg) asap before i try to lose a touch of weight to emphasise my sexy for the all too brief summer. My bw is 220lbs/6ft for reference.

Considering i eat fairly decently for the next few weeks do you think this goal is attainable in less than a month? I know, i know linear progression+food=win and all that but i wonder if most peoples experience is that they have to repeat workouts a ****tonne more as you get closer to intermediate unless your eating huge amounts? Really want to get this goal but if it's going to take too long i might put it on the backburner for a while.

Is that a 115kg 1RM and you're shooting for 140? Anyway, muscle memory should help quite a bit here. Don't see it as being completely outside the realm of possiblity but a good diet, rest and not missing any workouts would be pretty important.
