The last time I tired a 100m I fell off the seat strapped in, and some older lady had to come unstrap me so I could stand up. Embarrassing. I do somewhere in the high teens if I recall correctly...pretty crappy. It's all in the start.
You need to get on the creatine, bro.

Re: Sprint form variance

but I did just wonder where your absurdly awesome 500m placed you among lightweights... +1 highly impressive...makes HWT Martin look slow! :wink: (and me....like an "also ran" :lol: ). To be serious though, the C2 rankings IMIO are seldom truly world class as so few people really rank times and pro...

Almost certainly showing my ignorance here but....where's the fan cage? Is this the new streamlined Model F?? :D Can’t remember if it was W. C.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Haven't done much of late on the erg other than easy 5K and 30min sessions and nowt since Friday. Quick tearup 5K@1:52.1 (TIME=18:41.9) and felt good so encouraged I've still got 18:2x in me despite not training like an endurance athlete of late. After a great November in the weight room I had alot ...

Re: 60 000 m a week is killing me

Is 60 000 m too much? Of course I know about periodization, so next week I'll do maybe only 45 000m. My legs will however still be a mess since I go hard while doing intervals. Sounds like it for you with your current training composition. Why not experiment with a different volume/composition? You...

Re: GB Olympic Training in Spain for 2020 Tokyo

Still, that's quite of a bit of pizza and beer - you might be able to do it for a few days, but the true talent is being able to handle that sort of tough training regime day in, day out over the long term. The only way to know if you are that talented is to give it a go and see... As an Olympic ro...

Re: Pre-workout drinks

Hey i'm with you! Nothing gets between me and my morning coffee; i go to bed excited every night because bedtime means that soon i get to drink more coffee. Only point is, those "pre-workout" formulas that the gym bros use--some with outrageous names like "Total War" or whatever--have a lot of ingr...

Re: Pre-workout drinks

Skimmed milk for me... If it works for you then that's fine but IME milk feel like it's increasing saliva levels so you feel like having to spit more and clear your throat. Milk tends to coat (internal) surfaces. Maybe it's to do with the fat so I take your point about using skimmed milk...not some...

Be VERY careful with Creatine supplements. I have Stage 3 Kidney Disease (stable for 12 years), but my Doc thinks it's from additional use of creatine supplements over the years.
On what grounds? "thinks" or "knows"?
