HJS Studio Plying a Balanced Yarn
This set of class samples is too good to pass up, so I decided to include them as a further illustration of balanced and unbalanced plying twist. Each of the singles was spun to the same twist angle and thickness. Only the amount of plying twist varies, completely changing the way the yarn acts when used. Neither the yarns nor the knitted sample were blocked in any way. They were merely washed, and hung or laid flat to try without weights or pinning out.

The purple yarn on the right is balanced. The yarn hangs without twisting back on itself, and the sample knit from that yarn is straight.

The orange yarn is underplied and looks rather stringy close up--I couldn't take a picture that would show that much detail.

The green yarn is overplied. It twists back on itself quite a bit. It's easier to add way more plying twist than way less plying twist than a given yarn needs, so this skein twists back more than the orange, and the knit sample slants more. The excess plying twist gives it a rather hard handle, almost wiry.

My PhD student @leah_ss has found no evidence in support of this crying company’s claims. Perhaps it’s because she didn’t consider the effects of the “Handsome Man” manipulation? ⁦@NatGeo⁩ https://t.co/oRCIYkclV5

Make it impossible
"Do you remember me? It's me. Laurent." The last time Laurent saw him was when they were riding in a group with Auguste and several of their friends the summer after he turned fourteen, laughing when they raced across a meadow flushed with wildflowers, Damen greeting him cheerfully by his first name, right before turning to Auguste. It must have been three or four years ago. Laurent added awkwardly, "Auguste's younger brother."

Inspired by the quote and set some years after: ‘Thank you, I know exactly how it would have been...’ Laurent is of age and can't stop looking at his brother's best friend.

Fuckarounditis — Leangains
# Strength Goals: Intermediate

Within two years of consistent training on a decent routine, the average male should be able to progress to the following levels of strength (1RM):

* Bench press: body weight x 1.2
* Chin-ups or pull-ups: body weight x 1.2 or 8 reps with body weight.
* Squat: body weight x 1.6
* Deadlift: body weight x 2

# Strength Goals: Advanced

Under the exact same conditions, 3 out of 4 of the following goals should be reached within five years, along with all of the “intermediate” strength goals:

* Bench press: body weight x 1.5
* Chin-ups or pull-ups: body weight x 1.5 or 15 reps with body weight.
* Squat: body weight x 2
* Deadlift: body weight x 2.5

---

1. Keep track

2. Perform the basic compound movements above and only increase the load on the bar (or the # of reps with the same load). Keep everything else constant.

3. Use the starting strength protocol: 3 sets * 5 reps, 5 minutes rest. Start with a weight you can do 7-8 reps with. When you can complete all 3 sets with good form, increase the load. "All sets are to be performed with maximal effort and movements are only done once a week, 3 days a week". Experienced trainers: use the Reverse Pyramid Training: 1 set of 6-8 reps, second set of 90% of the weight, AMRAP. When you can do 8 reps in the second set, increase the load by 2.5% or 5 lbs. "RPT is very time-efficient. It’s also far superior to anything else I’ve tried for strength/muscle retention/muscle gain during a diet."

4. One movement per muscle group: squats, deadlifts, bench presses, chin-ups, triceps extensions and calf raises

5. Supplements matter less, but if you must - https://leangains.com/supplements-you-might-actually-find-useful/

6. Keep strength and cardio training separate, and "use cardio sparingly on a diet or if your primary goal is strength and muscle gain. A calorie deficit is a recovery deficit. Avoid deficit spending."

8. Skip crunches - "you’ll get plenty of ab work with squats, deadlifts, chin-ups and overhead presses"

13. Avoid equipment crutches (belts, straps, gloves).

16. "Personally, I only warm up for squats, deadlift, bench press and chins." - 1 set of 5 reps @ 40-80% target weight of the first set.

18. Learn good form early.

19. Avoid being spotted as much as possible.

20. Tempo doesn't matter that much.

21, 23 - any other exercise should come AFTER you hit the advanced lifting levels (bench 1.5x body weight etc.)
