    For general health, extending further than your heart and lungs, try some easy running as suggested. 20-30 minutes at a speed where you're still able to talk, albeit a bit difficult. This will be...

    I don't think he means physically rotating, but rather to put force in that direction. So your shoulder may do the opposite on the way down, but you tense it as if you would rotate it externally.

    To add to my story, I had a college about the hand muscles last week. This guy from France, who was studying this object, showed us the muscle activation of about five or six muscle groups for a...

    You're thinking too much in terms of agonists and antagonists. Hand flexors as well as the extensors span multiple joints and and work in a more complex - synergistic - way. For example: the flexors...

    The only thing I could come up with is protection against shear forces. Your bodyweight and the flexion forces from your muscles are pulling your joints apart, and your extensor muscles prevent this...

    Your lats prevent your delts from pulling your shoulder up and out of its socket instead of rotating it. That's both for safety and performance, because rotation is what you're after. Besides, the...

    Max HR differs a lot among people, even in one age group. I know from experience that my max is 200+. That's because I reach that during some of my running. My fathers max is somewhere around 175. If...

    Butt high keeps the horizontal distance between the weight and your hips to a minimum, which minimizes stress on your lower back. You can still lift with your hips, but the rotation will be bigger.

    Does Tabata even work on a treadmill? Can it accelerate fast enough for the short intervals (20s/10s)? Is the top speed high enough to call it a sprint? If so, and provided you manually entered the...

    Impressive. I've always lost motivation when I hit around 50 sets. Good job staying with it. What's next? Next protocol? Retest and do the same protocol? Next size up?

    It depends on what unrelated movement you had in mind. Strength training is highly specific. You can't expect pullups to make you run faster, and it won't allow you to lift much more weight either....

    I'm pretty sure my guess was correct. I see the number two and the Cyrillic letter "P", which looks like the pi you know from math. So that makes 2P, which stands for 2 pood, or 32kg.

    rest between sets fighter pullup

    It certainly helps. Since the fighter pullup program is designed to up your reps instead of gaining strength I guess a medium (maybe short) rest would be ok. So I guess I'm doing fine. Maybe just a...

    rest between sets fighter pullup

    How much rest do you take between the sets with the fighter pullup program? I treat it as a ladder and take as much rest as the duration of each set. Is this right?
