That was my complaint about MM also. It has great mobility exercises, but I wasn't sure in which order to do them? Do you master the first group of exercises before moving on? Anyway, I did write Eric and he explained to just mix them up, that I didn't have to follow a protocol.

Thanks Peter. It does help. When I go there, I'll read the labels and decided which one to get.
Also,for those of you who shop at Costco, in the new coupon book they mail out, there is a coupon for $6.00 off the regular price(?) of Muscle Milk Light, 24 pack. This is valid May 11- May 31 :smile:

It is strong, but I like it that way. I use it in my oatmeal in the morning also. I probably use about 2 tsps a day total. I hope that's not too much cinnamon intake.

100% unsweetened cocoa powder

I was interested to know for those of you who use 100% unsweetened cocoa powder, what type of foods have you mixed it with to hide the bitterness? I tried some this morning with my protein powder which has a tad bit of sugar to buffer the taste, but it was till way too bitter. Also, it doesn't mix w...

Check with your local nursery and ask if they have beneficial nematodes or parasitic wasps. Animals dig up the lawn to get to the grubs, so now you have two problems. Once you kill off the food source of the animals, they will hopefuly move on. Grubs feed on the roots, causung the turf to pull up ea...

You might try using parasitic nematodes which eat their way through the grub. Check out http://www.gardensalive.com and search for grub control.

I use the Smith machine for standing calf raises. I put two 45 pound barbell plates on the ground that i stand on, and align them so my body is perpendicular to the ground. I slap some plates on the barbell, then slide the safety catches up to the top. My gym doesn't have a standing calf raise machi...

As Ironman said, don't take one person's opinion. Do some research. Lot's of good info available (unfortunately some bad too) To me, this site is one of the best sources, But that's all it is, is an opinion. By the way, the rectus abdominus is a stabilizer during the deadlift. Good luck. :grin:

I suppose if you didn't have a weight belt, you could hold a dumbbell (goblet squat?) or a barbell plate whilst you squatted.Sometimes i hold a plate or dumbell with locked out arms and squat to hit the abs a little harder. After about 10 reps or so, my abs are burning!

If you really want to develop a good core, the best way in my opinion is to do exercises such as squats, especially the front squat, and deadlifts. With good form of course. You can always do isolation ab work to define the abs, such as planks or stability ball oblique crunches to name a couple.
