That Marketing Research book was used in a class I took last term. Pretty dense on info but nothing difficult, especially not if you have a good background in stats. MANOVA is about as difficult as it gets.


I like the eye is textured on the front. I don't think will even go into the stats in my course, I think its mainly just ideas and interpreting like R outputs.

I'd say if your not already really focused on this by the time your 20 your a little to late for an analyst role. I had my offer from for a SA role from MS (yolo don't work there anymore) when I was 19. No one wants to hire a 23 year old 1 year out of uni with no internship experience even if they've got a first econometrics and mathematical methods at LSE when they can hire a summer intern. In the UK banks put requirements on your high school grades to even apply, you have to be quite driven from a young age, but yeah 20 is too young to be dressing like a rim.

Dude I keep seeing this in my gym too. People think they are Bane or something. I guess it's to measure oxygen intake, but it's like #1 you're not an athlete and #2 I bet you don't even know how to breath properly anyways.

Yeah I saw a dude doing that over Xmas (I'm in the Southern Hemisphere so it's bloody hot at that time of the year).

He was huge though (like 6'4, about 120kg) and doing 150KG squats for like 10-15 reps, super-setting with leg press. I asked him if he was done with the squat rack. He didn't take his gas mask off, just looked at me and slowly shook his head. I didn't ask again.

I'm not sure, but I think those masks are designed to simulate high altitude training by limiting the amount of oxygen the wearer receives.

Im under contract for a house, has a ~300-400sq ft space I am allocating for the gym. I thought I had a plan for what I was gonna fill it with, but I'm realizing I still use a good amount of specialized equipment despite paring it down. Just thinking out loud.... here are the movements I do and the potential problems I'm seeing

BB flat bench- currently using regular gym bench, was thinking of switching to cage. Tried benching in cage, really hated it. Dont have room for standalone bench
Close grip DB bench- want to switch to neutral grip bar to avoid spending $$$$ on dumbbells... same cage/rack problem
Seated cable row/lat pulldowns- LPDs I can switch to chinups, but all the low row pulley stations I'm seeing suck. Cant hold more than like 100 lbs
Shoulder press- I love to use the Hammer Strength shoulder press machines backwards for safe behind the neck action. No way Im buying one of those for the house, but I dont want to risk it with a barbell
Hamstrings/calves- Been loving the no deadlift life and the seated rotary calf machine works great + is way less risky/sketch than BB calf raises (word to Jeff Alberts). Lying ham curls have been working great too.

Everything else is OK. But thats a lot of shit. Would it even be worth it? Who here is doing the home workout thing exclusively?

Long and free scientific article that discusses how to achieve muscular hypertrophy.

http://www.strengthandconditioningresearch.com/hypertrophy/

 

Goes through it all (ROM, set, reps, weights, etc....) with complete references.

Greg told me the short side of it is; lift weights at 70-80% for reps.

The biggest take away is that you can do much higher frequency than is the current dogma.
