First paragraphs after The Problem: Objectivity and Rationalization, How Does This Apply to Training? & Solution 2: Asking the Question Provides the Answer, there are " instead of quotes.

Good read.

I've tried involving some of my friends in collective gym discipline arrangements but they're either too busy to take the gym seriously or just going their own way.

Quote:
At least one of those things is technical guidance, teaching people to do the movement correctly. A disturbing trend over the last 15 years is that the number of people in gyms doing things right is far far far outweighed by those doing it wrong.
My worst doubts are about things I can't quite "see," like the shape of my back through rows, flyes and chest press; my only feedback or guide is "trying to make my back feel like it's right," but with a heavy weight there are other things to worry about.

I was thinking the smart thing would be to use the video function of my digital camera to at least video the things which can be seen - back form on rows, eg - and then compare that to videos I trust on the net.

Or do what everyone else does: put them up here for analysis.

Being involved in a sport that requires efficiency in technique and separated from my coaches by several hundred mile I've had to resort to using a video camera. The problem is always having someone who can video what you are doing correctly...proper angles and follow movement.

I've used a video camera set up so I can see the screen while I train also.

Designing a program is always a challenge....it's about the progression more than anything. Reaching new challenges but not challenging enough to cause problems in the progression. It's been difficult to do. Being an older guy in training there isn't a lot of room for error. Recuperation takes to much time. Time that I don't have.

I actually thought about this article while riding my bike yesterday.

I was trying to do intervals based on what I think (want) my FT to be. I haven't actually tested since my peak fitness back in August. I would tell anyone else to do an FT test before continuing with training.

sigh. I just scheduled myself for a 20' power test on Thur.
