-the effectiveness of the "Carried Away" carries/drags/etc as an unorthodox, but very effective system for improving conditioning and performance
Sounds interesting... what are they?

Robert: Dan goes over some of these in his articles at T-mag.com.

It's worthwhile to check 'em out. He also goes over many of these in his DVD, "Carried Away".

Here's the Vblog associated with some of the stuff:

This is also reposted from the log I have in that section.


-power snatches, using the cues Dan taught me
-power cleans, ditto
-goblet squats + bootstrappers combo
-some words about Squat Therapy, because I was feeling a tad ironic

Also, on bootstrappers

I'd consider the flat or neutral backed bootstrapper to be of some value. In the combo you see me perform this style of bootstrapper.

If you have a tricky back, keep the back neutral.
If you really want to stretch out that posterior chain, keep the back neutral.

I think there's value in roundback work, and there's not a whole lot of extra pressure on the spine in the round back version of the bootstrapper squat.

That right there would be walking on water in my book.....unless it involved duct tape and ZMA.
