    Cool. this is useful - i wasn't sure what the comparative levels were (I'm not going to take testosterone), wasn't sure if, like, "lifting the day after a hard ride" would be good advice - just trying to get a sense of things. "Lifting in general" is going to be

    Oh, and I might be going from a squats-only thing to including deadlifts and powercleans. Ya know - just 'cause.

    We've really boiled this track cycling thing down to the essential stuff here. Good work, all!

    I've said it before- but I usually just repeat the same stuff over and over so:

    this is is a sub culture (weightlifting)
    inside a sub culture (track sprinting)
    inside a sub culture (track racing)
    inside a sub culture (bike racing)
    inside a sub culture (cycling)

    once you you find yourself on page 8 of the weight lifting thread of Bike Forums Track page.. You have officially crossed over to the dark side!

    Don't fight it..

    Incidentally, BMonty... I'm starting to dig deads. 50 years of zero back work and horrible posture are doing their best to fight it, but deads will win out eventually (I hope). They aren't quite as satisfying as squats, though. Can't explain why.

    The couch potato method of raising levels is to watch football and have your team win. With the warning that if the local team loses you go under baseline.

    The UCI is in negotiations with the NFL and FIFA to ensure all games end in ties to prevent some regions gaining an advantage. Host hotels during tours and championship events will be locked on HGTV or the cooking channel.

    I was in Arizona when Canada won gold in Hockey last month, definitely was a nice boost to my numbers for a couple of days (power, not smugness)

    And your body spikes production of HGH in the first 30 minutes of sleep. I'd rather increase my HGH levels by having a nanna nap than lift stuff...

    Yup. Whenever you feel tired after a hard ride or gym session, don't fight it. Take a nap. That's what you've been training for...DAT HGH!

    A friend of mine posted that on FB last week. Very impressive.

    Watching Benni pull 1015 from the floor was a lot more impressive to me, though.

    After watching the power lifting videos, I am going to change my pre-race 500 routine. After I hand my bike to the starter to be placed in the starting gate, I am going to stomp around and high five the USAC officials and then chest bump Adam. Before getting on the bike, I will rip the top of my skin suit off and race bare chested. That may be the last time I am allowed in VSC.

    ^^Lol.
    Please film.

    In all seriousness though, deadlifts are just such a mental lift. It seems like the best deadlifters are completely crazy. Look at Benni or Pete Rubish.

    One of my favorite Powerlifters, and a heck of a nice guy, 148lb Kyle Keough Pulling 601, raw. He loses his mind quite a bit before a big pull. This is one of his calmer approaches. He usually verbally assaults the bar a lot more.

    It's generally a combination of things. Massive pressure in the skull, snorting ammonia like it's white pony fresh off the boat, etc...
    I've never heard a solid explanation from a medical professional though. I've only ever had mild nosebleeds during training.

    i used to get the blood spot in the white of my eye from time to time.. i started sort of valving off some pressure at the top of squats to avoid the exploding head.. now a new thing has started.. i am getting little bloody bruised marks above and below my eye lids… my wife love this!
