so stu, should i not lift weights until i feel that my right wrist is healed? Okay, I'm not stu! I'm sure he will respond later, but sometimes you need a break. It's actually a hard thing to do, without feeling guilty that is! Sometimes you need to rest, you're not a robot and at times your body wi...

Looks good, Ya gotta do what ya gotta do when working to a budget, as long as you stay safe. The only thing will be placing the weight down on them accuratley on the negative part of the rep, technically you shouldn't be looking down whilst deadlifting. Once you start to get heavy, you will probably...

So...whats missing is.... Upside down (i.e. feet attached to the ceiling) squat, where you pull yourself into the squat position, or two low pulleys attached to the feet, laying on your back and draw the knees outwards and towards the chest. Vampire squats and lying Leg rows...do they exist? hmmmm....
