I've seen these for $15 buck at various dept stores. I don't think that's expensive.

So for those of us who do like LOST, what did you think of last night's episodes? I think it's getting kinda of crazy. It seems like it's going to be real hard to keep up with what time it is on the island.

I'm going to add Front Squats to my routine next week in place of regular squats. How much difference is there in the amount of weight I should be able to do with front squats compared to regular squats?

I got this book from Men's Health in the mail the other day and they talked about benching with feet up. Here's there response. I'm going to quote them word for word so for disclosure purposes this comes from Men's Health Total Fitness Guide 2009, pg 184. Q: "Is it okay to put my feet up on the benc...

I just read some of these posts and I read one that said pushups weren't that good of an exercise or that you wouldn't get anything out of it. Why's this? I've been reading that they are a great exercise. I've also tried the perfect pushup and I thought it was okay, but nothing much different than u...

Ask them and let us know. There is supposed to be some core stability benefit. It's like squatting on a boso ball. It's a way of increasing injury risk without providing any real advantage to your training. For would-be recipiants of the Darwin Awards. So I asked the guy last night why he did it th...

That is until I messed my knee up playing basketball and was sidelined for quite some time. Truth of the matter is thru work, life and w...

Thanks for all the responses guys! I have been drinking Chocolate milk or a Whey Protein Shake after I workout, but I wasn't sure if I was on the right track or not. I also generally eat dinner after a workout about an hour later. I get through my workouts with no problem so I don't think pre-workou...
