The “Ultimate” PAP/PTF Pyramid Training Scheme

This is just the start

However, let’s not damn everything that’s developed in the last 10,000 years; it’s the reason we’re here today.
  • A discussion of an n=1 experiment I’m looking into undertaking, possibly reporting the results for a talk at the Ancestral Health Symposium.

You can still find me in the blogosphere but grades, work, and rest take priority!
