    Asked RP about Muscles. Answer : swimming, bicycling, and tennis ?

    I've had the the opportunity to ask Ray about more details concerning building muscle and getting lean on a Ray Peat diet. The first part of the answer was like "i never go to gym" style. But i was surprised by the second part. I've asked him what his thoughts on exercice such as Dips...

    Laying Vs Sitting Vs Standing Vs Walking

    I was wondering, today many people believe that we are sitting too much in a day, and with bad posture. So I wonder, what do you guys think about that? If I sit I have higher pulse than if I lay. I guess just more muscles are active. If I sit with good posture, I also have higher pulse. After a...

    Chairs And The Like

    So, I had a weird thing happen today. Actually, it started when I made a vow a few days ago not to use as much furniture. This was done with the goal of having better posture and core strength: I would sit or belly flop on the floor or ground as much as I liked, so the goal went, but would not...

    Is Rock Climbing Reasonably Concentric?

    Seems to me that for the most part rock climbing is a concentric exercise - the muscles are shortening while contracting when you pull yourself up with your arms, or push yourself up with your legs. I'm just not sure about the "hanging there" part when you're planning a move; probably...

    Understanding Lactic Acid Buildup During Exercise

    I've noticed after I do a set of squats, my frequency of breaths increases, which indicates to me an increase in CO2 in the body. I notice also that very shortly after the set is complete, a tightness in the muscles that I have just exercise develops, which if I understand correctly is a...

    Not that this is any surprise to the forum readers, but I found it quite alarming that the brain shrinks in a such a short amount of time even though the study claims that the brain recovers within 6 months after the event. What I found also interesting is the explanation for the shrinkage - the...
