|thinking bout lift|
#2 For more advanced athletes “functional” training and single leg training just lack the intensity and intent that heavy compound movements do. I does’nt matter how many fancy variations you dress it up in, that neural drive that comes with squatting or pressing heavy just is not there.
#4 Do we really need to deadlift often? I posted about this on scramblog and the result was interesting. Deadlift defence force flipped their wigs, until a few got past the bait in the title and gave it read. Exercise selection is contextual. http://www.scramblestuff.com/dropping-the-deadlift-for-bjjmma/. Echoing something steve collins said on twitter the other day “Of course u don’t need to back squat, the same way you don’t need to bench or do BB deadlift, nothin written in stone & as usual it depends”
#5 Carbohydrate depletion maybe a more viable method for cutting weight than dehydration http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23774282/
#8 Coan-Phillipi routine has made my deadlift a lot stronger in only 7 weeks (I still have 3 to go), I am currently chasing down 272kg and have been pulling the numbers the program generated with ease. The extra speed work and brutal accessory work has made my pull much quicker off the floor.
#10 I love my Wave Gi but the Scramble athlete gi is pretty freaking cool http://store.scramblestuff.com/Scramble-Athlete-Kimono–Blue_p_198.html
