They used to do it on photographic film, physically cutting and splicing sections of film.

Just back from lifting heavy things.  My copy of Sisson's  (and Kearns) "Primal Endurance"l has arrived.  At a glance, they mention not to forget the great success of the old masters, Lydiard land Maffetone; keep one's heart rate below 180 - one's age. 

Seems that the great Kiwi miler's, Peter Snell (one of Lydiard's athletes), 1500m time would qualify him for the olympics today, 55 years later.  His NZ 800m record still stands.

Nice, dude!  It's looks like a ninja training camp.
Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

yea, hopefully as it grows we'll get some more climbing and acro style gear in there.

the guy doing the staff work in the video has inspired me to learn a bit of that (which is two-fold wonderful for me: I never know what do with my hands when I'm dancing, and this solves that problem, and the finger work works the extensors nicely, which tend to be neglected in my training). going to check out the local fire-dancing group this Friday.

As I mentioned in another topic, I am a little limited in time, money, and environment to work out. After some online research I bought a sandbag trainer as it looks like the cheapest and one of the best weighs to add some resistance to my daily workouts.

If you have not heard of this before the basic premise is you take some bags and fill them with sand or gravel. The gravel or sand filled bags can be put into a larger bag, which allows you to adjust the weight anywhere from 10 to 100 kgs. You can then do squats, deadlifts, lunges, cleans, swings, shoulder press, getups, etc.. The advantage of using a sandbag system is that it is super cheap, and the center of gravity of the bag shifts as you lift it up. Traditional barbell or dumbbell lifts are more difficult and you have to use your core more often because of the shifting weight. I am excited to get into it.

Id say it gets oversold when compared to barbells which I think are better for chasing specific results and avoiding injury but I agree 100% that sandbag training is awesome and really can do just about everything most people need!

yea, pretty neat bunch of people, eh.

anyone with an artistic side/background/whatever I really do welcome critique from. I'm only just learning and using a terrible camera right now (we're looking at getting a go-pro). I had never even heard the term 'full frame camera' until yesterday :P
I hope to make more videos, and since they won't always be so frantic, the more stylistic visions I have to work with the better I can make them, and the more aware I am of the art of good photography the better footage I can get. I guess it's O/T though ,should I make a thread for this? I know we have people in these kinda fields on the forum
