Re: Neanderthal no more question

Are hamstrings shortened or lenghtened during lordosis? NNM suggest everyday hamstring stretch, while exrx.net suggest strengthening them, without stretching: http://www.exrx.net/Kinesiology/Posture.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sport...

Re: Belt usage

How should I behave if I train without a belt? Should I let my abdominals to adapt themselves to the load without thinking about it? Or I should draw my belly in, as described in this article: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/how_to_be_back_strong_and_belt...
