Is that really what Von Meister is promoting????

The BMI scale differentiates between overweight and obese. Is obese healthy? I have seen overweight people finishing marathons, but never seen an obese person finishing. Although I'm finishing around 3:30-4:00. I don't wait around to see who's finishing after 6 hours....

Probably dropping in on you, California
all i know is i got down to 10 percent BF last year for the first time in my life and it was miserable.

freezing all the time, hungry and impossible to maintain. i thought i wanted to be that fit but much more comfy in the 13-15 range.

Link with data?


All around improvement of health markers such as body composition, even for those with RA


I noticed a lot of women who get into Starting Stregth end up putting on some fat and then talking about how it's ok they're fatter than before.
Where did you meet them? The reason they got fat is they ate too much.

I know too many back injuries.
What you aren’t seeing are the number of people who dont end up going to the doctor for rotator cuff, knee, back pain etc because they do resistance training.

As usual, you are spouting off about something that you know very little about. Probably because it’s something you have no interest in doing, so you make crap posts like this to convince yourself that it’s not worth doing. Confirmation bias 101

We need more details to know what went on with his fat neighbor, but he's just trolling. This is past the point of useful discussion.

Americans have been getting fatter AND weaker for decades. We need to get thinner and stronger.

Marathon running is a very specific skill.....but every city marathon has recreational runners who are obese on the BMI scale finish.

You’ll be able to hear more details eventually. I don’t want to talk about it further due to legal reasons.
