Anyone tried out the Buttero sidezip boots? curious about size etc. Tried asking in the NMWA thread but got zero response.

I have a pair, though not one featured on NMWA, and I sized down 1, and they fit me well. I have another pair, but they are lace-ups rather than side zip, for which I also sized down one and they fit well.

Thanks for the response! How is the quality on their boots? I have not ever seen them in person.

Sorry about this, it must have fallen through the cracks!  For the sidezips we have most customers have been happy with a size down, while some take 1.5 sizes down.

Do you have to go to the gym to utilize his techniques, or can this be done at home?

@Mr. Moo - now, all you'd need is a two dollar lacrosse ball. foam roller would help too (rumble roller). half the book is on body mechanics and lifting/movement technique, though (also?), not just stretching exercises

The quality is very nice. I've never owned anything like Guidi or A1923, but the quality of the workmanship is on par with Wolverine or Red Wing. The materials are obviously nicer, however, than the American workwear counterparts

My buddy at the gym this black dude is super fit and all he does is body weight movements. He does 10 sets of 15 pullups in the best form you've ever seen in your life, 2-300 pushups, 200 dips and I don't know what else. We'll always do pullups and muscle ups when we bump into each other. He's huge too but recently started incorporating weights. I like combining all sorts of exercise in order to become well rounded and have functional strength. When I see the juicers at the gym I can't possibly understand why you'd want to look absurd and have useless muscle of that size that just slows you down. Don't get me wrong I thoroughly enjoying lifting a lot of iron too. Yes I do isolated movements but compound is better and calisthenics is my favorite. I just don't understand why you'd limit yourself or just be that guy with the romaleos who always hogs the rack doing deadlifts, or the guy who hogs the bench or that guy who's whole workout involves cables. All that is a waste of time unless combined with a well rounded routine. My favorite is seeing the random crossfitter who thinks he's next level doing garbage kipping pullups and I stunt on them doing non kipping muscle ups on top of the cable frame.

Most guys who only do calisthenics have weirdly underdeveloped legs.

Most guys who only do calisthenics have weirdly underdeveloped everything.
