Once again, I’m reading Pavel Tsatsouline. I can’t help it. I like the Mad Russian.
Right now, I’m readingÂ The Naked Warrior,Â his book on calisthenics. Mostly, it focuses on just two exercises, which doesn’t do much for me, but it does talk a great deal about the concept of “greasing the groove.”
I’m sure Tsatsouline isn’t the originator of the idea, and I know I’ve heard it for years, but the basic idea is that you do a submaximal lift with a lowish number of reps and before you realize it, you’re stronger than you realized.
It’s made me wonder if it’s the key to being “farmboy strong.”
