seems my password was guessed and a spammer logged on... I haven't been on the site for years, but got an email notification due to your reply.

Anyway, I'll change my password to something less obvious that the spammers will have a harder time guessing!

The first time I did it was just a bad dislocation... flipped my sailboat, and slipped when I was getting back in once we got it uprighted. Since then, it's been weak, and has dislocated a couple of times, mostly in the gym. If you go to physio for your arm pain, you might get some lightweight exerc...

Two exercises I got for strengthening my shoulder rotation from physio, due to a similar problem use that surgical tube that they seem to prescribe for everything... my problem, though, was too much ROM... my shoulder can rotate externally about 30 degrees further than it should. On involved pinchin...

HIIT burns calories from fat and carbs, and spikes your metabolism... plus it doesn't take such a long chunk out of your day. You can do it in under ten minutes, a few times a week.

Oh wait... one arm bb presses??? I didn't catch that the first read through. I don't think I've ever heard of that. ...in that case, though, I would think db presses would be easier.... the longer bb would require a hell of a lot of balance, so you'll probably find db presses a lot easier. What does...

Well, 10 lbs might be a rough estimate, but I don't think there's a set number like that... it all depends on how developed your stabilizer muscles are, or how used you are to independent arm movements like that. I'd go light at first, if you're unsure start at 30, or 35... it's definately a whole d...

The bars at my gym weigh about 40 lbs, while the handle of a dumbbell is only 5, so that's 30 lbs difference right there, between a barbell or two dumbbells. The stability of the barbell is what makes it easier. Physically, using dumbbells doesn't add any weight, so I'm not sure what you mean by "10...

Here's what the 'expert' at the Sports Nutrition store said about the whey powder... he kept saying "studies show" like it was going out of style, so he must have got it from somewhere: Mix half a scoop of whey powder and half a scoop of dextrose with 500mL of water/milk, drink half before the worko...

See, I heard soccer and motocross were the two most physically demanding sports... I guess it depends on who's voting, and what's considered more "athletic".

Some people just get frustrated when they play competitively - it's not necessarily the fact that he's not playing enough. Racquet sports seem to bring out the worst in some people... I went to a regional badminton match at the local high school, and watched a girl hit her leg with her racquet every...

If you're waking up feeling that bad, it might be an issue with your sleeping habits, not breakfast.

I find drinking lots of fluids (other than coffee) in the morning makes a lot of difference to my energy levels during the day.

I'd stick to three sets, just increase the weight.

You shouldn't be able to do more than 12-15 reps in a set... if you can, you should probably increase the weight.

I'm not sure what you mean by double work, Ironman. If it's the fact that I'm working both biceps/triceps on two different days, that was intentional. I used to do chest/triceps on the same day, but a friend of mine suggested trying them switched, and I've prefered it. The chest and back workouts ar...

Looking for Workout Comments

Well, I figured I'd write down my normal schedule as of late, and see what people think. It's loosely based on one of Exrx's 4 day templates, but I've modified quite a bit, as far as how they're split up. A few notes: - I'm 22 years old, 6'3", 185lbs. Started training about a year and a half ago, to...
