  7. KB swings for ages = deadlifting with high hips?

    I've been back in the deadlift game for the first time in years, after spending years doing an insane amount of KB swings and snatches. Despite being a lower weight than I was when I achieved my DL...

    I have more energy during cardio when I train fasted. Weights are a mixed bag. For 10+ rep stuff, I feel stronger, but for low-rep, heavy weights, I run out of gas a bit quicker sometimes.

    For me it's a hell of a lot easier to get through a 24-hour fast than to undereat for 24 hours, but I'm sure they both work just fine if you do them right.

    I'm no longer doing ESE, but my weight loss has held steady. Before ESE I was around 230 lbs. I'm steady at 195-200 now. Good stuff.

  16. I stopped growing at 15

    But that was completely unrelated to lifting weights. My dad stopped at 16 and my sister at 12, so it's genes. And hell, I was 6'1 anyways. I didn't need to be any taller.

    I'd be skeptical just based on the weirdness. I prefer finding out what's been proven to work best in fighting situations - IE, what style or styles is most common among the best MMA artists?

    Conclusion: do LOTS of double cleans for cardio fitness

    Definitely not tough to believe that one there. After I do barbell versions of the clean and jerk (each for 4-5 reps), my heart is pounding like insane.

    clean and jerk experiment, any advice?

    You could mix the two :P

    I'm currently spinning jerks, front squats (so I can work up to a squat clean that's better than my power clean), and dumbbell bench presses.

    Oops, I mean
