“Once Again, Terrible Exercise Science Gets Praised by Mainstream Media”-Mark Rippetoe

Basically, the study compared the effects of two stupid, inefficient ways to get stronger and bigger, and then correctly determined that they are both equally stupid and inefficient.

No competitive strength athlete in the entire world will change training programs on the basis of this study — because they all know that to be stronger you have to lift heavier weights in the squat, press, and deadlift, usually for five reps or less.

Sony HDR-AS50 action cam-short overview

Few days ago i purchased SONY action cam HDR-AS50 (why do they give them such complicated names? 🙂 )
Separately  i had to buy bicycle mount for handlebar and strap mount for helmet.
All in all, with some discounts i got, it cost me 178 USD.
In the package, there is underwater housing capable to go 60m under the sea (for 30 minutes). I will not go that deep, just 4-8 meters maybe, but it will come handy for recording underwater landscape on my holiday.
Today i made first video while riding with my kid to kindergarten and then to work.
Videos need some processing and i will update this post later on.

In the meantime, here are more specifications and pictures of the cam.
