    Hey Koto I see that you are involved in strongman comps did any of the BBT guys uou train with ever tell you that strength will give you bad habits?

    I heard "don't use strength" countless times. It should be "don't use strength alone to accomplish the technique"

    So then "root beer" is redundant?

    This is why Aussies find Roots clothing so amusing, and find Roots Kids to be downright hilarious in a sick, twisted way. :icon_twis
    I've heard "fanny pack" translates with equal hillariousness as well.

    I remember asking on Kutaki once what everyone does to relieve tension and mentioned my strongman training. This is pretty much how that convo went:

    I ask the question.
    The first few people give some decent advice.
    Then some moron says:

    Take some time to reflect on why you want to be a "strongman." That tells me that whatever it is, it's not about being strong, but about having others recognize that you're strong. Ok, so what do you do with that?

    There's nothing wrong with recognition of strength, and contests are fun...but maybe that is a phase you have to go through and end before your taijutsu will free up.
    So another one agrees and says "Yeah, bodybuilding is bad, do bodyweight exercises. Don't isolate.", showing no knowledge of what proper strength training is, then tells me to literally "balance your Yang with some Yin."

    Someone pipes up and says hey strongman is different than bodybuilding you knuckleheads. Another one pipes up and says yeah, balance your Yang with your Yin. Then another dude later on says training with weights is bad and recommends and recommends Systema exercises. Another says yeah, strength training is good but bodyweight is better.

    So essentially, I got a good bit of advice then a bunch of people saying "Why do you want to do strongman, is that some kind of ego thing?", "Balance your Yang with your Yin!", and "Bodyweight is better."

    You should send back to him:

    Take some time to reflect on why you want to be a "wiseman." That tells me that whatever it is, it's not about being wise, but about having others recognize that you're wise. Ok, so what do you do with that?

    There's nothing wrong with recognition of wisdom, and contests are fun...but maybe that is a phase you have to go through and end before your taijutsu will free up.

    Ask those dipshit bodyweight faggots how many pistols they can do. How many one-arm, one leg pushups can they do for a set? Ask them how Yin can grow without equal Yang and vice-versa. I really hate the consequence-free environment the internet has created.
