1.Pick your repetition range. Taking your approximate 5 RM and doing a ladder with 1-3 reps is a good place to start.
2.Pick the number of times to run through the ladder. I'd suggest starting with 3 runs through. If you get all three ladders, then you need to add weight next time.
3.It's about staying fresh and crisp. It's not about grinding them out and gritting your teeth.
4.Let the volume do the work.
the basic example given would be to use your 5rm for 9 sets. the reps would be 1/2/3/1/2/3/1/2/3. if you complete all reps (18), you add weight. if not, you try again next time.
Seems pretty cool and I thought I'd try it for my bench since my bench is ass.

couple of questions:
  • Break between reps? Suggestions are 1 breath, 2 breathes etc according to ladder. Seems a bit awkward for benching, I dunno.
  • Break between sets = ? Same as SS, i.e. when you feel fresh enough to go again?

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

lulz, funny enough on a recent trip to a little-ish town, I was sitting around with the locals drinking beer and watching a game of pick-up football.

6 a side on a dirt court kind of stuff. Most of the participants looked fairly young, probably ranging from about 16-early 20s, most of them looked like your typical favela ganstahs.

Even in this informal game, with mostly "tough-guys" palying, the diving and cry-baying was fairly off the chain.

oh does it tend to be more regional? i never thought of that. so a Swedish or Norwegian player, generally, is less likely to fake an injury?

I say so. I think the Mediterranian guys with the South Americans as a close second, are all flopping gheys.

Aussies are hard-asses because that sort of sh*t just wouldn't fly in Australia.

Also, I never miss a chance to post this.

lol yeah, it was kinda ghey. Espcially because Australia was actually starting to take notice of football (as in "zomg, out team maybe doesn't suck all the balls") and then everyone saw this and just went back to "lol football is for diving gheys".

Agree with Snitch. Mediterraneans and South Americans are about as bad imo, Northern/Western Europe is nowhere close. I hate Italy with a passion, bunch of ****ing primadonnas. They screwed over Norway in Mexico '92 with the same bull****. Stalling tactics el grande, faking, whining etc. I definitely understand the hate for that.

lol? fknwot?

Rugby (both forms) is more popular than soccer... and tennis doesn't even rate. I mean, I guess everyone loves the Australian open, but that would be like saying that tennis is the most popular in England because everyone loves Wimbledon. It's only once a year.

If I had to guess, I would say based on yearly attendance of games.

1. AFL
2. Rugbly League
3. Cricket
4. Rugby Union
5. Soccer

4 and 5 could be close. The domestic soccer and domestic rugby games get ok crowds, but soccer has more games per year, although I have a feeling rugby would win because they get a handful of massive crowds at international games over the year.

Yeah, probably because the survey includes a bunch of women that don't actually watch sports but like the Aussie Open so that is their favorite.

Yes the list of gays in soccer who dive and act like ******s is mostly restricted to the South Americans, Mediterraneans, and Italy. You tend not to see ******ed **** like this when it comes to the dutch or the English playing, for example.

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

Also, fwiw, I've heard that in terms of participation, netball is the biggest sport in Australia... And there is also massive youth participation in soccer.

Fortunatly all the gheyness seems to get weeded out in the pro levels... I don't know what I would do if our best national team was netball... It would be like your best national team playing a sport not one else in the world plays...

fwiw, our national netball team does kick ass anyway

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

tbh I really have no idea how it happened like that... and oh do I wish it was the other way around...

My weak theories are...

- Professionalism. This is probably the biggest reason why union lags behind league. Rugby league was a professional sport in Australia well before union. Hence, anyone who excelled at union would switch to league at a senior level so they could make a living playing.

Although now that union is also professional and the global union economy is waaaaaay bigger than the global league economy, it is starting to go the other way and you are starting to see excellent league players switch to union for teh monbies (even though they say it is the challenge, blah blah lol).

- Numbers. Rugby league has always been more associated with the "working class man" game and rugby union as a more elitest game. Hence, league gets promoted more heavily in public schools and union more heavily in private schools. There are more public schools than private schools.

This kind of became a self perpetuating thing and is related to the first point. In the past, if you played union at a high level, you still needed a job to make a living. Also, because many of the union players came out of private schools, you would find lots of players that were also lawyers, doctors and other high-tier professionals.

So the "working class' league fans would be like "pffft, union is a phags game. they're all lawyers and sh*t. not like my mate robbo who plays league and used to be a brickie". Aussies love the notion of the "aussie battler" It goes all the way back to Ned Kelly (even though he was Irish lol) and our convict past.

Although, in actual fact this stereotype kinda died out with the last generation of players because the current generation is the first to really know full professional union. So while many of them still come out of private schools, the have gone through school knowing that they can make a living out of rugby and hence don't pursue another job.

Although I agree most of the dives on this link appear to be from romantic language speaking countries, I recognized a couple good dives from Gerard and Rooney in there. (I can recognize like 15 soccer players total, so just the fact that I recognize them is a testament that they are extremely popular players)

Spectator and participation are different though. Soccer is surely the number 1 participation sport, even in Australia these days.

+1!!

Also the northern Europeans shouldn't get off when it comes to diving. Germany has produced some of the most legendary divers of all time. Even the English, who probably do dive the least still do it sometimes. Gerrard being a particularly noteworthy culprit.

It is a blight on the game but its no reason to not watch it altogether given how good the sport is apart from that.

Seems pretty cool and I thought I'd try it for my bench since my bench is ass.

couple of questions:
  • Break between reps? Suggestions are 1 breath, 2 breathes etc according to ladder. Seems a bit awkward for benching, I dunno.
  • Break between sets = ? Same as SS, i.e. when you feel fresh enough to go again?
I tried it today. 90s between sets was fine. Rest between reps? Seems stupid.

SXSW music festival in Austin:

[x] thousands of people wearing chucks
[ ] more than 3 have done a full squat

also i f**king hate this hipster chick trend of wearing tights, cowboy boots and jean shorts. gj taking one of the sexiest outfits a chick can wear(tights and boots) and making it look like something an old lady from a trailer park would wear.
