I personally, can't stand to ride a bike - at least not sitting down. I have tried various methods of padding the seat to make it more comfortable, but with no luck.

If your hubby finds the solution in a special seat. I'd love to hear about it!

Best of Luck,

I've tried the olympic lifts in the pool. I found it very interesting to say the least. It really helped with balance i found. I am a big fan of odd object lifting and found that lifting a big awkard stone is much more challenging (obviously), when you are pulling it out of a river or pond. I was do...

Holy crap - i am glad i am not starting weightlifting today - i would think this was all too confusing and quit now. I am not going to get into a debate about full body compound movements and abreviated training now. But if you want to learn a much simpler and similarly effective way of training, go...

I am a big fan of Brooks' work as i have zero use for isoloation moves, preferring the full body movements and abreviated training programs. I am also a big fan of body weight movements for active recovery and endurance training. HOWEVER, i am not a big fan of paying that price for stuff you can get...

ENERGY FOODS

Hello All, I am looking for advice on energy type foods. I am interested in eating foods that will give me more energy - not meal replacement bars, or supplements - real food. I am feeling pretty worn out most of the time and am wondering if my diet could help. Any suggestions will be greatly apprec...

Failure - foo foo

I personally have not seen any advantage in training to failure for the many reasons pointed out in the study posted. Personally, i prefer to use the less is more approach and leave a little in the gas tank for tomorrow. I learned the hard way, of course - training to failure = injuries. Once i got ...
