“Knowledge without mileage equals bullshit.” — Henry Rollins   The past week has provided for an interesting convergence of physical culture themes, punctuated by the resurgence of a few instances of the age-old “HIT vs old-school bodybuilding” debate.  Actually, the debate has now mushroomed so as to include many other methodologies (CrossFit, Oly lifting, power […]

“Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.” – Will Durant     The last stop in our walk along the circular Five T path is Trademark (or, if you prefer, basecamp).  Essentially, this is knowing who you are, how you’re wired, and what you’re good at.  Endomorph?  Ectomorph?  Mesomorph?  Or (more likely) some […]

“The height of cleverness is being able to conceal it.” – Francois de La Rochefoucauld Ever wonder what the relationship is, in a practical sense, between systemic fatigue, workout-induced muscular failure, workout volume, and that oftentimes misinterpreted word, “intensity”?  And, more to the point, what is the interplay between these factors and workout frequency?  And […]

I wasted time, and now doth time waste me. William Shakespeare Continuing with the Health vs Performance curve theme from last time out, we see that the weekly time investment requirement, relative to increased performance, increases exponentially.  I know, I know — big shocker, right?  But somehow, this basic tenant becomes…I don’t know…watered down? — […]

Three diverse pursuits emanating from a single, overriding endeavor — weight training.  I began dabbling with a Venn diagram to illustrate the association (or, rather, lack thereof) between the above-mentioned individual pursuits themselves, and quickly gave that up; the association being more along the lines of the interaction of blobs within a lava lamp (showing […]

Charcuterie: …from chair ‘flesh’ and cuit ‘cooked’) is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, pâtés, and confit, primarily from pork. Charcuterie is part of the garde manger chef‘s repertoire. Originally intended as a way to preserve meats before the advent of refrigeration, they are prepared […]
