As usual my queue of “someone was wrong on the internet” rant fodder is overflowing, but I continue to suffer from elevated levels of dilligaf secondary to chronic outrage fatigue. Look, the TSA are being sadistic assholes again. I guess that means only libertarians and (checks federal balance of power) some Republicans will raise a stink, while neocons and (checks federal balance of power) Democrats will snidely dismiss the complaint as “whining”. So it goes in this best of all possible worlds.
I’m also suffering from fatigue fatigue subsequent to today being deadlift day. With that in mind, I’ve gotta link to Wil Fleming’s outstanding post on T-Nation today:
That title is, um, less than encouraging. It brings to mind absurdities like “Do 3×12 split-stance Zercher kettlebell half cleans with a slow, five-count eccentric to get hyooge! Look, I said “clean”, it’s Olympic lifting and stuff!” But Fleming is smart and his article is blindingly clear. Regression complexes will make you more awesome. (And somehow, until I watched his videos, I’d never realized that high pulls are a great way to practice scooping the bar.) I’d give it two thumbs up but, well, hook grip.
On the off-chance that you’re bored by both my minimal political content and by that link, have some metal (you might, er, want headphones if you’re at work):
