Re: Losing muscle

I am not overweight now (after coming close and losing some due to healthier food) but my legs are still massive (and yes, it is muscle...I have very little fat left on them), so that they are actually out of proportion, especially given the less intense lifestyle I'll be living now. I simply don't...

Re: Most inconsistent lift

Maybe for me its the Barbell Bench Press. Maybe it's one of those lifts that gets bombarded with lots of opinions on how you should be executing the lift? Arms tucked v's arms flared, scaps back and down, squeeze the bar, full rom or not....leg drive! With all that going on in the head, it's easy to...

that's reason enough for me to avoid it.
Personally, I think it tastes like $h1t, thats why I avoid it :roll:

Re: Milk

hoosegow, I see that almost every month in newspaper. And here is one link . In discussing their results, the researchers noted that Asian men consume up to 10 times as many phytoestrogens as the men in the Harvard study without encountering any apparent fertility problems.

Re: Need advice on Tennis Elbow

:laughing1: I have to agree, it looks most extreme and the demonstration shown does seem too much, however I have tried this myself (just on the tender points, for maybe a minute or two) and the relief is instant and lasts for hours. I do suggest stopping short of drawing blood. Rik, As I stated, t...

Re: Need advice on Tennis Elbow

This video is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. The chiropractor that worked with me applied pressure in a similar way and stretching the tendon with his fingers. The "Graston Technique" video of "skinning" the patient or should I say victum is senseless. However, it does prepare you for ...

Re: Need advice on Tennis Elbow

It is not caused by adhesions, which are a major myth. Interesting. Just to clarify, are you saying 'muscle adhesions are a myth', or 'Tennis Elbow is caused by muscle adhesions' is a myth? The following link is a good read for anyone interested, it goes a long way to explain why the elbow/forearm ...

Re: Need advice on Tennis Elbow

I'll have a go at this one. The problem here is that the term 'Tennis Elbow' is pretty much thrown around as soon as someone starts having elbow/forearm pain without much proper investigation. Classic Tennis Elbow would normally be caused by a repeated movement that is causing small injuries over an...
