“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 […]

“To know oneself, one should assert oneself.” – Albert Camus I’ve written in a prior post my thoughts on where supplementation fits in to my “3 pillars” approach to health, fitness and wellbeing.  I’ve also discussed the pros, cons and limitations of both properly designed assessments and blood panels and, citing my own Omega-3 level […]

“A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.” – Confucius   I’ve had some discussions lately about periodization models, and about what models I think are most effective and, more to the point, why (seemingly, at least) I don’t follow any periodization model at all in my own workouts.  Even […]

“Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.” ― Terence McKenna Being fully immersed in a particular subject — in my case, S&C and […]

“Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.” – Albert Einstein A few weeks ago (as documented in this post) I pricked a finger, dabbed some blood on a blotter card and, feeling rather smug that I’d “upper percentile” the hell out of the results, sent the sample off to […]

“Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen,  few in pursuit of the goal.” –  Nietzsche    Mark Rippetoe recently posted a fantastic “Crossfit analysis” article over T-Nation.  This is a very honest, non-sensationalized critique of the behemoth that is Crossfit.  It’s an excellent read, and I highly recommend that you check […]

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.” – Cicero   This picture has absolutely nothing to do with the following post; it just makes me smile.  My hometown BBQ joint: Railroad Bar-B-Que, in Kyle, Texas Longtime TTP readers will recognize my “three pillars” approach to […]

“Never live beneath your privileges.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer First off, Greg Everett’s American Weightlifting, the Documentary is one hell of a work of art.  And, in no small part, a true labor of love.  Because only love would compel a person to spend so much time and effort in a “thankless” endeavor.   In […]
