    Flare up of some metatarsaglia, basically pain in the ball of my right foot from running too many miles on shoes I should have replaced a while ago. Been taking it easy since Friday because of that.

    Assault bike, max distance in 30 minutes. 9.1 miles. The downside of having a backside good for squatting is that it's not good for those seats.

    Sure but you’d need to focus on the really major ones. Dips and pull ups for the upper body for example.

    Bill Starr's Strongest Shall Survive had data with that. Something like your hamstrings need to be at least close to 70% of the quadriceps strength or something along those lines. Many athletes...

    If you value strength and muscle equally, start off with an empty barbell and learn how to squat and deadlift properly.

    You'll be fine, just don't start off with 50+ pounds right off the bat. Slow progressions.

    Operator, Week 1. Press, squat, weighted pull-ups. Finisher: push-up/20kg swing pyramid (50 and 90). Math was hard this morning - did my squats with 20# more than I should have. Oh well.
