A recent Elite FTS newsletter reminded me that a site’s archives are often filled with juicy goodness, and Straight to the Bar is no exception. Here are just a few of the highlights from the past 2.5 years :
- 30 days of biphasic sleep
This is the post which began the switch to a biphasic sleep routine. If you want to find out more on the switch, check out the 30 day and 2 month summaries. For some resources on this great sleeping methodology, look no further than Biphasic Sleep Resources.
- DIY: Home-made gym equipment
If you’re anything like me, spending several hours in a hardware store isn’t exactly difficult. This post lists a number of resources on transforming the contents of said stores into great gym equipment.
- Zottman, Hackenshmidt and Maxalding
No longer here, but still teaching. Along with several other old-time strongmen, and all those who follow in their paths. Superb.
- I love the smell of coffee in the morning
Over the years my caffeine intake has been up and down, and the ‘up‘ part of that is largely due to coffee consumption. More recently, however, I’ve been adding a little white tea to the mix.
- Bruce Lee’s back injury
As a long-time Bruce Lee fan, finding out the cause, treatment and subsequent effects of this infamous injury was fascinating. If you’ve ever seen one of his films, read a biography or seen him in action, chances are that you’ll appreciate just how big an event this was.
Grab your favourite beverage, sit back and enjoy.
