  1. The important point is the protection of the structures over your knees. As your hips loosen up, you'll find greater strength.

    My hips are looser than the guy's in the video. I have to isometrically hold my hips above my comfortable bottom resting position (without the roll back into it) to have my glutes as high up and knees as far out as him. Am I misunderstanding, does that mean my hips are tighter? Is it like I said in my last post that the Maasai and I have too weak knees, glutes and hips to rest that far up? But that means they're also tighter?

    I think a lot of the popular academic exercise science biomechanics theories make more sense when just cross-referencing popular academic theories and people who train according to those and develop habits self-referentially evidencing them than when considering examples of how the best athletes and tribal people move. I don't mean in context of that and comparing my form to the Maasai and the Great Gama and Michael Jordan that I'm a great athlete. Maybe I'm looking for ways to confirm my misunderstandings. But still, although I'm not a very trusthworthy example of it, it seems to me the examples of great athletes don't evidence the popular academic biomechanics theories. And when the great athletes work with trainers who use those theories, they usually don't get worse because they've already developed movement habits strongly enough to not have their form essentially messed up much from the theoretical training, and maybe even if the training isn't the best form some benefit from it can still be integrated into their better habitual form because of the strength of their habitual form allowing some accomodation and taking-it-for-what-it's-worth integration from the academic form stimuli (although training with better form -- like maybe what they didn't lose from toddler and childhood form (like is more common with tribal people), and/or what they did to develop the essentials of their athleticism themselves in their teens without much professional advice -- would integrate more improvement).

    I was also thinking about mouth size compared to airway volume in athletes and the affect fascia tension from the feet might have on that.

    I said how when I do the ground gripping feet exercise, after I warm up and I start doing it about as intensely as I can, I feel it a lot in my tongue and neck and head. Some people who want to expand their mouth and airways but don't get an orthodontic palate expander try mouth exercises using their tongue and/or chewing and posture improvements to stimulate growth and volume increase. Some athletes -- Kobe Bryant was the example I noticed -- have narrow mouths compared to what the palate expansion advocates claim is optimal jaw size. And the reasoning is if narrow jaw thus also small airway volume, based on people from 10,000+ years ago (I think, maybe longer for the larger size to be consistent) (the first video in that post of mine I linked to has detail about the measurement comparisons). But Kobe, for example, had great cardio condition and didn't seem to have trouble breathing through his nose during intense exertion. So if the tension from the feet through fascia can influence the tongue, neck, face, head, could tension from feet have increased airway volume but not jaw and mouth width because of the need for airway volume being during the same movements needing feet tension but those movements not needing jaw and mouth width? And so could increasing feet strength in a way that tenses fascia in the neck, tongue, head also increase airway volume, maybe with the necessity of also using that kind of feet tension during high oxygen demand cardio?

    Also, the way Michael Jordan would stick his tongue out expands the volume of the airway in the back of the neck.

  4. Most small mouth issues began with sucking ones thumb or fingers. Breastfed mouths do not exhibit this.

    @John Schumacher

    Do you know of exercises that could do what his inventions do (the X3 or Osteostrong)? It's interesting but I'm thinking maybe using them could be harmful in ways he hasn't predicted if it's too different from movements people have been able to do recently on an evolutionary scale? Or if there are exercises that could have the same effects then maybe doing those would do what the machine does and be better in other ways. But I don't understand much of what either is doing. Would bodyweight movements with intentional extra tension more or less at different places in the range of motion, like what I was calling fascia tensioning exercises but done with varying intensity during the range of an exercise that doesn't necessarily make that tension, do what the X3 does? I'm not sure how the way to make the tension would change depending on the exercise it'd be combined with.

    At 24:20 he says Nautilus machines are similar but not enough variation in reistance. At 30:51 he shows a pushup-like movement. With a resistance band around his back, it gets more difficult the further he stretches the band, so it's like doing a pushup and getting 5x fatter pushing up and 5x lighter toward the ground? So could there be the same effect by anchoring a resistance band to the ground and doing a pushup under it with it over the back? The bar has places to attach a resistance band and it comes with a floor plate to attach the band to. And the bar rotates in relation to the attachments on the sides so it's like the resistance from the resistance band anchoring points moves with the bar, so it's designed to be like lifting free weights that change weight through the range of motion? There's gotta be a cheap way to make a bar with rotating ends with stuff from a hardware store.

  6. Dr. John Jaquish has implemented the science presented in Dr. Doug McGuff MD's work "Body by Science - A Research-Based Program for Strength Training". Dr. Doug McGuff is head emergency doctor at his hospital; so his protocol is very cognitive of potential injury; however, because of its implementation it supercharges strength through full functional movement and pushes the client's hormonal response through the roof.
    The multiple machines are identified in "Body by Science" are very expensive and specialized to provide a continuous variable resistance. If you are interested in improving on Dr. Doug McGuff's machines, you maybe able to visit his therapeutic center and learn.

    [QU OTE="DrEttinger, post: 291984, member: 22307"]Calcium vs Silica is the story. Read this at your leisure and you will better understand calcification. This article is no longer available on the net - why? Download and save a copy.

    • Silica is the second most abundant element on earth. It is an essential element of living matter and humans have a critical need for this element.
    • We are born with an abundance of silica and relatively low amounts of calcium. Then with every advancement in chronological age, the amount of calcium increases, and the amount of silica decreases within the body.
    • Silica enhances the function of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and boron, and is essential for bone development and growth.
    • Silica is also one of the most important constituents of the body’s connective tissue, including cartilage, vascular lining, tendons, and ligaments. It is found in the thymus gland, the adrenal glands, the liver, the spleen, the pancreas, and in considerable quantity in the hair.
    • It is known to play a part in the integrity of the bones, arterial walls skin, teeth, gums, hair, and nails, and has been used to alleviate eczema and psoriasis.
    • The average adult body requires the maintenance of about 20 grams of silica to promote good health. However, the body metabolizes and secretes about 10-40 mg. of silica per day through urination, hair loss, and nail trimming.

    [QU OTE="ElectricUniverse, post: 267441, member: 21203"]Depending on your BFF's current condition she could probably benefit from some heroic hefty dosages, up to 100-200 Grams ( a Gram of course is 1000 mg).

    A good tool to use to gauge how much ascorbate (C) dose is necessary is to titrate to bowel tolerance. This simply means upping the dose until you reach a threshold of diarrhea, or runny bowels (harmless). Here is the info: http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1981/pdf/1981-v10n02-p125.pdf

    To quote an interesting excerpt from above linked document:

    Mononucleosis responds dramatically to
    ascorbic acid although the doses required can
    be very high. Early in this study a 23 year old,
    98 pound female librarian with severe
    mononucleosis claimed to have taken two
    heaping tablespoons every two hours con-
    suming a full pound of ascorbic acid in two
    days. She felt mostly well in three to four days
    although she had to continue about 20 to 30
    grams a day for about two months.

    Preferable to use buffered C powder (not acidic) but if you must, go ahead and use straight ascorbic acid powder. Don't bother with the wimpy small dose pills or capsules, and stay away from C chelated with calcium.

    If I had known all this back in the day my mono incident would have been more like a bad cold and not a multi-month ordeal.[/QUOTE]

    Day=24 hrs=1440 minutes
    Sun goes around Earth, 360 degrees
    The first 15 degrees are the most important
    over one minute sun makes 360/1440=0.25 degrees
    Look up sunrise time at your location
    Look directly at the sun during the first 60 minutes.
    But especially near the end of the first hour.
    tomorrow my sunrise will be at 5:27 AM
    I usually get up at 6 AM. By 6:30 my coffee is ready and I usually go outdoor.
    I Will have to hurry up some
    Above is a great news for me. My backyard is sunny the whole day.
    But I am not able to see sunrise from my backyard.
    Planned to build a platform/balcony on my roof.
    Now no need for platform.
    30 minutes after sunrise is ok.

    Crowdcare request for Mom just diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer
    Not sure how it would help now, but often people (men & women) get breast cancer due to high estrogens and low progesterone.
    P/E balance.
    Also, low testosterone may accompany.

    [QU OTE="Penny, post: 299365, member: 446"]I was looking for a study I had read years ago that said methylene blue plus potassium iodide (Lugol's) killed a breast cancer cell in vitro... then I found this:

    Seems like green tea is a good thing...

    It seems to me if you also use DMSO at the same time, it would transport it subcutaneously to the cancer cells - read this:

    Then of course there is pot - fantastic results in cancer - also, ketogenic diet - zero sugar - plenty of morning sunlight on her breasts -


    Take vitamin d and selenium and get her into the morning sunshine - and you must lower her stress level - progesterone supports the production of cortisol - there is a blog called "cancer hits, what's next" that JK wrote for someone he knew - read it - actually, there appear to be 26 articles on breast cancer alone:

    Histamine ---->inflammation (complicated, lots of possibilities)
    Homocysteine---->inflammation (much simpler if you would follow what LifeExtentionFoundation suggests as step #1)
