This shoe is absurd, basically a sock with a super thin sole.

Look at how it performs on these comparative graph's from runner's world:

Weights 2.8 ounces! Wish I could find them in the UK, though they'd probably destroy me.

hey. i'm back and after a long, long layoff kind of fat and weak. time to fix that! going to be doing something broadly on the lines of greyskull (the above was only day two and was kind of a random assortment of things)


Various bodyweight/mobility things through the day. Plenty of pushups, planks and such, since i know i won't be able to get to the gym tomorrow.

Anyone know any good sources/articles discussing the relationship between these? Like hypothetically if I got a wicked good side split and front split, would that make my active straddle (i.e. in front lever, back lever and planche) much wider? Would my squats be way better?

I love in the last one how he is basically just laying his legs on his torso. It's so absurd.

ADARQ & LanceSTS - Q&A / 400m training and lifting
« on: August 11, 2012, 09:28:05 pm »
Yo, figured I should make a return here at some point, might as well make it a question.

I've been interested in getting into 400m running. Actually, I guess that's not quite what I mean. Rather, I've recently felt like getting both faster and fitter, and figure that the 400m is the best all-round metric for to measure both of those facets simultaneously.

So I've been reading a bunch about how people train for the 400m, and it is more complicated and overwhelming than even I'm used to in regards to training methods. There's special endurance, speed endurance 1, speed endurance 1, MaxV, accel, yada yada yada. All that is clearly far beyond what I need right now, given that I suck at 400m. So, what I'm asking is what are the basic things you recommend for a person at a fairly regular level of fitness to start improving his 400m time while not forgoing continued strength gains?

Blast sent me this. It is a fucking amazing live beatbox/extemporaneous/music performance. The Scottish accent makes everything even better. You can hear the Scotch in his beatboxing.
