Does anyone have "Wrestling Physical Conditioning Encyclopedia

Why does 4chn even exist?
Why does 2channel even exist?
Why does 2ch even exist?
Why does the Internet even exist?
4chan exists as a place for the greater masses of retards to congregate and not clutter up the intertubes for the rest of us. Sort of like how alt.tasteless kept the sickos out of alt.sex and alt.humor in days of yore, except not as good.
I fear the day when 4ch dies. The ensuing tsunami of shitposts will destroy any remnants of civilized conversation on the entire interwebs. We'll need 24/7 horsecocks on all the boards to keep things under control.

Does anybody have larger photos of the MobilityWOD posters? Everything online is small and I do not know how to zoom in without it blurring.
Can someone upload "Train Like an Athlete: The Ultimate Book of Strength, Speed & Agility" please?
What does /fit/ think about self-defense systems like Krav Maga or MMA?
So you have context, I was attacked some time ago and still don't feel safe ever while I'm on the street. Can it actually help, or the advantage would be merely psychological? Or none of them?
I am searching Mike tuchscherer's spreadsheets (coming with his rts book) and his DVD also. It would be very appreciated, lots of thanks :)
Any full contact combat/sport training helps. It doesn't make you superman but even "just" doing wrestling puts you way ahead of most people you'll meet. Mix it with some pure self defense technique like finger manipulation, eye gouges and ear twists/tears, and you should be able to handle most *unarmed* 1v1 situations.
Also, don't forget that running is a great self defense you can't get sued for.
You've heard the old "use the opponent's strength against them" and that you can be weak as hell, but defeat massive opponents, but you'd have to have really good, if not perfect technique to pull off moves that completely cancel strength. Sometimes, the situation may not be ideal for getting someone into a position for a pin or something, so that's why I always supplement my Wing Chun training with working out.
That may seem off topic, but what I'm saying is that
A) Yes, full contact martial arts/self defense training definitely helps, like >>12210 said.
B)If you don't already, do some occasional powerlifting or just lifting to build strength and size. I speculate your average teenage hoodlums or thugs are less likely to attack you the more built you are.
C)Anything goes if you're being attacked with malice. Eye gouging, clawing, biting, groin attacks, etc. There is no such thing as an unfair move in a street fight.
I'd say go for whatever self-defense system/martial art you want to do, but make sure there's full contact, training in street clothes (you won't be fighting off an assailant in a karate gi and bare feet, and even if you can kick head height, maybe the jeans you wear on the street can't stretch that far), and most importantly, RANDOM ATTACK TRAINING. When doing Wing Chun, I did the drills no problem, but once my teacher suggested sparring, I was overwhelmed when he suddenly started attacking with random and full speed attacks that had full force behind them.
Whatever system/martial art you choose, it should train you to be prepared for random attacks, not one where you practice a move with a partner, because in such a case you know what and how your partner will attack. But with sparring, you don't know what kind of attack or even combos the person might choose.
Doing rows for lat development is like benching for delt development. Sure, it works, but it should not be the primary focus of the exercise. Pullups/chinups or lat pulldowns are better for lat development, rows are fantastic for rear delt and general upper back development.
I just do barbell rows fully protracting my shoulder blades at the bottom.
