No, that is not what I wrote, apparently you stopped reading the thread regarding my book, yet you comment! I am not mad I am looking at this as an opportunity to educate and try to help people.Doctorr Fabulous wrote:cyruspace wrote:
But this isn't new. It's the same thing you did to "prove" that speed crawling is an important survival skill.
This is basically what I wrote over a few posts in my book thread:
1. The military did or does teach 2 different crawls the high and low crawl, they train crawling skills!
2. I showed a video of the world record speed crawler, who is faster then many people can run.
3. I explained how speed crawling is not training in a vacuum. It can be used to develop cardiovascular endurance, anaerobic power and shoulder strength and endurance.
4. I explain how speed crawling can be considered a superior exercise to a similar exercise the front lateral raise because when speed crawling you are using far more muscles.
5. I introduce the term scrambling (how many have heard of that term before?) which is moving over difficult terrain using both hands and feet, why? It's for speed and safety reasons! I then presented a video showing scrambling up a very steep long hill. In human conflict many people have used difficult terrain in defense.
6. I did write about the scenario of crawling in a sewer or storm drain, I believe I also talked about military manuals considering fighting in sewer or storm drains.
7. There was a very short lived show on TV on which the star was supposed ex special forces and one of the first things he mentioned was a good way to enter a city without notice is to consider the storm drains or sewers.
8. I also said it was an ancillary technique, which means not an important consideration. I compared it to the third fire starter that may never be used but nice to have if you need it. It's also like your pistol and rifle combination, you may never need your pistol because apparently guns never jam or break and running out of ammo for your rifle is never a concern!
9. Since I call speed crawling an ancillary technique I give a recommendation of only training it a minute or so twice a week and how it can be part of a general warm up or shoulder warm up so the exercise does not even take time away from other exercises!
10. I posted an article showing that speed crawling is used as part of the physical training test for firemen because they may have to go into tight spaces looking for victims. Here is the kicker. The crawling event is timed!!!!! As one of the good guys I have no problems training to potentially rescue victims! I could have just mentioned this 10th point and it would have proven that speed crawling has value in a survival situation, unless as part of your PAW face you won't try to rescue people.
Later in my book thread I mention the importance of developing strength for performing muscle ups to be able to climb into windows or over fences and what do you know I posted an article showing special forces involved in a physical contest in which the muscle up was one of the events! Also, if you read military manuals they mention the advantage of entering buildings through upper floors, that it's better to fight down into a building then up. So climbing is also important.
But, you are entitled to your opinion.
I just hijacked my own thread!
