WTF happened in here? Lowest monthly post count in February ( 678 ), heading for an even lower one in March ( 146 so far ) , huge daily post count negative PRs this week ( 8 March : 4 , 9 March : 3!!! ). Ok, me and LBSS were away, raptor was down, but still... hope we bounce back up eventually.
woot

Whoa! Cool site. Did you take inspiration from the Vinsanity/Vinsane nickname for the site name? Interesting structure separating journals into vert, strength, speed. What if you're interested in all three like me  :D ? I made an account there, might not log there yet but will contribute when it gets going.

Haha yeah it's a long story...

But my nickname is "Raptor" because back in the day in 1996 or so I used to play Quake 2 with a neighbor and he used to use that nickname and I thought it was cool so I started using it.

Then it so happened that I became a VC and therefore a Raptors fan... I mean what were the odds, right? :P

Thanks for joining!

Will write a few more articles these days, continuing with the one-leg jump ones but will also talk about two leg jumps and how and why (in my opinion) the squat relates/sometimes doesn't work for one leg jumpers.

I don't like that you chose to advertise in this specific thread. Here we share thoughts about how to save adarq.org and you suggest to go to yours? Weak, -1 here  :pissed:

just occurred to me that a big reason there's less activity now than before is because most of the active journalers don't really post outside their own journals. me, acole, vag, raptor and a couple of others make up the vast majority of posts outside people's own journals. it was not always thus.

not complaining, just an observation.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

Tis true. It seems like most here have their own idea of what works for them so there are less questions asked about differing training philosophies. New blood would probably fix some of that.

No doubt it stays. It doesn't shrink much more than that anyway, i don't think any of the remaining members would leave for good. Maybe a break for some time ( flander, dreyth, adarqui, me last year ) for whatever life reasons but they will come back. The training virus does not die, it sleeps and reflares.
:welcome: back btw!
