    Default gym movement - a b2d preview

    There's been some round about discussions of gym movement here - what adam has been discussing over on his new site - and what seems to have set off a bit of a fraca here.

    I've been cogitating on it for a bit, so put up a preview, prior to an interview with the approach's founder, if that's the right term, in the coming weeks, to see how it integrates with things like RTK, adam's radiant dawn pressing program and stuff like GS snatch work. It's preliminary but tries to pull a few things together in one place.

    I ordered it for the same reason. I believe the insatiable appetite for knowledge is what makes us a great community. If it is a good idea, why not use it... That is how we progress.

    Default mc, on biofeedback:

    Interesting stuff for sure. Jury's still out on credibility. Oh, and the founder's name is Frankie Faires - I recall him as a semi-regular poster here a few years back. I'm glad to see you're on it; not surprising as you go right after these things. One question I have, given limited workout/practice time is how the "testing" to see what the movements of the day are to be, and at what intensity (% RM) and rep range, are to be completed while leaving time to actually lift. I need to read more. Keep up the good work; your blog is of great interest. Bill

    excellent! i have been on the sick bed all this week and therefore have had the opportunity to spend far too much time on the web finding out as much as i can about this. i am very intriged by this and am looking forward to getting back to training as soon as possible to "test" this myself.

    I too am intrigued. If I remember correctly there used to be some correlation between grip strength and CNS recovery. Perhaps this could be one indicator others could be heart rate, speed performance as with a tendo unit, jump height, etc.

    I don't know about the "movement" stuff. If they are into it, than great, go for it. To me it seems to be over thinking something that should remain simple. It looked like everything was centered around toe touches. I may be wrong, but that's what it seemed like to me. Going off range of motion cold vs warm, well of courses you will stretch further down when you get warmed up. Honestly, I don't see the point. But, like I said if it works for them, then great. For me, you will have days you feel strong, and days when the session will suck.

    The toe touch is use because it is easy to see a difference and you need no extra equipment. Also, you are not trying for your biggest, meanest toe touch. But stopping at the first sign of tension, which takes the warm vs. cold stretching out of the equation. It is also just one test. You can test any movement you want, but it must be something that you can see/feel the changes.

    I was introduced to this stuff this last weekend at the Grip and Rip 2.0. I am not sure that it works as perfectly as they say. However, I am willing to play around with it and see if it helps my progress.

    i talk about this in the article too.
    the last move is not always the best move. assume that you're well warmed up; some moves will result in a regression. This happened yesterday every time i tested a move i really wanted to do.

    hmm

    I am thinking of applying this biofeedback technology to my diet. When I can't touch my toes anymore...I'll quit eating.

    Did you see my questions I had raised in the other thread, with how isometrics seem to test whenever I use ROM on anyone?
