Simply Stronger

For those of you looking for a strength training program that’s effective and dead simple to follow, check out the “Wendler 5/3/1” program.

You can google it and learn the basics in just a couple minutes, but we strongly recommend Jim Wendler’s e-book for the full scoop.

It’s not rocket science nor is it revolutionary.  It’s basically yet another periodization scheme.  But it works.  Just weeks into the program, some Tribe members are reporting noticeable gains in strength and muscle density.

Indian Club Elements: The Salute

Last week we brought you the first and most elementary of the Indian club movements:  the cross.  Today we bring you the second in the evolving series on Indian club training: the salute.

Once again we turn to Rocannon Macgregor for his experience with (and inspiration for) “making the clubs dance.”

Find Wholesome Local Food

Many of you probably already know about it, but for those who don’t… the Weston A. Price Foundation is a terrific resource for anyone interested in paleo living.

Visit their site not only to learn about food and health, but you can also look up local chapter leaders who can help you find local resources and point you toward fresh raw milk, kombucha mothers, kefir grains, and all sorts of other interesting goodies for Earth-connected foodies.

Paleo Solution Seminar Announced

On a very upbeat note, Robb Wolf has just announced the first of his new (post-CrossFit-affiliated) nutrition seminars.

(Actually, it will be his second post-CF seminar because the first one will be a sort of “make up” for those folks who got bait-and-switched by CrossFit HQ’s recent severing of ties with Wolf.  This first one will be in Chico on January 31st.  However, it is by invitation only to those folks who registered for upcoming CrossFit Nutrition seminars, thinking that Wolf would be the instructor, only to find out he’d been replaced by Dr. Barry Sears.)

For those of you already familiar with Robb and his work, you’ll definitely be interested to hear his uncensored take on how nutrition really should be best approached. It will be hosted by Freddy Camacho and held at CrossFit One World in Union City, California, on March 6th, 2010.  You can click here for more information and to register.  Cost is US$199.

From what we hear, Dave Castro will probably not be attending.  This is an explicit attempt to achieve better hormonal balance among participants by preventing the overmodulation of testosterone.
