Greg, To what position is the Turkish sit up? 1 arm laying down to sitting upright,then return to ground?
Greg Everett 2008-10-26
BK - Lying to sitting upright and posted on the free hand, return to lying.
Ryan McKenzie 2008-10-27
New here. If a weight isn't suggested, are we to just choose one we are comfortable with, (e.g. the TGU-sit ups, and KB sidebends)? Or is there a rule of thumb?
BK 2008-10-27

Ryan - Yes - Choose a weight that is challenging for the RXed reps/sets.

Hey Greg, I talked to Donny Shankle this morning he says hello and he wants to know when you're going to visit the gym he's training in San Ramon for a little lifting competition. Check him out at www.californiastrength.com take care
Greg Everett 2008-10-27
Ha - Donny can kick my ass lifting barefoot and 1-handed. But tell him I definitely would like to make it out there to train sometime soon. I may be up in the area around Thanksgiving, so I may have to make an east bay trip.
luca z. 2008-10-27
Will do, let me know when you're up here maybe we can hook up.

I saw a video of Donny Shankle do Grace in jeans and boots after a competition. He essential did Romanian dead lifts + reverse curls + presses and crushed a 1:40 or something like that. He almost passed out afterward, but pretty impressive how he man handled that weight with virtually no technique. I know how good a lifter he is, but thought a measly 135 would be a breeze... eye opener. BSx2x5 405, 410, 415, 420, 425 SDLx2x3 305 May have been a little slow PPx3x5 245 65# side bends
Matt Schellinger 2008-10-27
I think I have realized I am dumb, I did x sets of 5 instead of 5 sets of 3, which would have let me use more weight and would have made more sense. Yay me.

BS 140kg SnDL 100kg PP 85kg That was fun I weighed myself today. 205 with a spare tire to boot. I'm gonna do 30 days of paleo intermittent fasting, eating from 12-6 on weekdays. I've been overdoing it with the beer, bread and ice cream, and feeling like crap, too. Last time I did it I lost 20lbs, got cut, and felt great so we'll see how it goes this time.
