    Default New Book That Might Be Good!!!

    Well, I said years ago that it would be a good idea: a historical exercise book that gets into methods that tribal warriors, Vikings, and other people from earlier times used to build their abilities.

    Mark Hatmaker is releasing a book this fall called "Rough & Ready" that actually gets into things that are usually just referenced as "training." No ninja stuff as far as I can tell & I'm not sure if it gets into anything about the Scots, but it looks awesome.

    There was a thing that was mentioning the "Apache Running Protocol" (that spelling), Viking oar runs, some kind of Iroquois Crawl (that's supposed to help your swimming, actually), stuff lumberjacks did that builds strength & explosiveness, and all kinds of other stuff.

    There's supposed to be 100 challenges in this book that either take no gear or uses stuff you find around in the house/garage/toolshed. Sounds absolutely ass-kicking, to me.

    Anyway, I figured that would be of interest to people here & if you go on indigenousability.blogspot.com, you can find the promo or whatever it's called.

    That looks interesting. I actually tried to look up stuff like that many years ago but couldn't find hardly anything.

    No matter what it sounds like I don't think PTTP will ever be surpassed. Simply because the book is centered around the deadlift, the only exercise that truly matters.

    My only disagreement is Pavel's dietary advice. It's wrong. Low carb sucks sh&$!

    Most of Mark Hatmaker's "ninja stuff" is on trsdirect.com as videos, like how to break any submission hold, ground fighting, illegal boxing, etc. He's done martial arts for a very long time. Doesn't say if he's done any deadlifts....

    Low carb is one of the easiest ways to lose excess body fat. Sure, you can't eat burgers and pizza, can't drink beer or milkshakes, so it must be shit. Try a magic pill instead.

    Wow, what a trash study. Obese individuals that are already sugar burning, 800 calorie restriction, six days.

    It can take up to six weeks or longer to become fully keto adapted and gain all the benefits of the diet. Six days is not near long enough for a "major" study. If they went six months I might pay a bit more attention, except the six month studies show the opposite result.

    But hey, to each their own.

    Why not do the Warrior Diet? Worked for me & it wasn't totally eliminating carbs, just making sure to get meat & vegetables while saving most of my food for a meal about an hour or two before I went to bed.

    Warrior Diet works for many people. I do intermittent fasting with a 16 hour fast per day. Paleo works, but I prefer to eat some dairy. Ketongenic does not eliminate carbs, just those with a high glycemic index. If I eat for my needs, I don't gain or lose weight. When I overeat, I don't add weight because I have no insulin spike. If I add a bit more protein, I can add muscle. Too much protein and I add muscle and fat. If I go off it, I can get back on and reduce any accumulated fat quickly By slightly undereating. It works for me.

    Note - none of these diets are endorsed by the NIH, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonalds, or Papa Johns.
