I hate doing taxes more than anything else in this world

Anonymous asked: What do you think is better for beginners? Cube or 5/3/2

I think 5/3/1 is a bit easier to understand and follow in the beginning, especially before you’ve really dialed in your 1RMs and percentages. I followed it for about 2 years. I really like the Cube Method now, but I kind of had to develop my own programming by extracting different sections from the book. It wasn’t straightforward.

Dang

Some of y’all are dirty birds

Ray Williams broke the IPF world record with a 905 lb squat, and it was quick! (Walked out, drug tested, no wraps)

Damn!

Check, and check. Not surprised that the miserable-excuse-for-coffee-called-decaf doesn’t have the same benefits.

We get asked about the difference fairly often, so here’s a nice pic to illustrate the basics. Now for the non-tl;dr version:
Primal could be called Paleo for foodies. Primal is okay with low levels of (ideally) raw milk (if your body tolerates dairy), low levels of raw sugar/honey, low levels of sea salt, and low levels of “healthy alcohol” like red wine. Paleo is basically no grains whatsoever, while Primal rates them from least offensive to most. For example, some wild rices and quinoa would be okay in the Primal diet. Paleo’s goal is generally 100% adoption, while Primal goes for 80/20, where the 20% is intelligent deviations.
So which is better? That’s entirely up to how they make you feel! If I were a professional athlete I’d do strict Paleo. As a husband and parent, I enjoy Primal more. Both make me feel healthy and energized, with a nigh invincible immune system.
How about the tribe? Paleo, primal, or something else? Let us know in the comments.

I’m more Primal myself, minus the dairy though.

I like it.

I ran into a lady at my old CrossFit box a few weeks ago. It’s been about 9 months since I left and started my own training at home. My wife saw her this week and she told my wife that she saw me and that I look huge. Nice.
