It's a strange phenomenon. I've heard people say this about gear on the internet a lot... But I've never, once in my life, seen or heard anyone be that open about illegal drug use in real life outside of marijuana. Close friends of mine, sure. But loose acquaintances or people I don't know... Hell ...

If it aint broke, don’t fix it!

If it aint broke, don’t fix it! I hadn’t been to my gym since the beginning of December. I fancied a change so I’ve been using my fire station drill yard for circuits and sand bag training. But I started to miss the little things I used to enjoy about the gym. The way it smelled, how it would cheer ...

My Sandbag circuit is getting a little old now though and I could do with mixing it up a little. Anybody know any good / challenging circuits I could try out? This is how my sandbag ci...
