A little off topic here, but I've also seen guys bench with their feet on the bench. What is the purpose of that? I've never gotten the nerve to ask them why they are doing it! I was educated by weight lifting myths growing up ... so I'll elaborate ... folks back in the 80's told me to bench with m...

The normal routine around here is jog for hour, the more the better, do the machines once or twice a week, eat low fat, because fat makes you fat, right, then have fish and chips for lunch on Friday because you've earned it, and drink all weekend. better than most ...

Monday December 8th (+ increase since October 20th, overall since June 14th). The new routine is working out great. It's a slow but "very" consistent pace. Fits well with my schedule .. but now that school is over my stress will be reduced so that should help with the being tired factor (just finis...

At least his colleague isn't one of the guys at my gym telling guy #2 he needs to do more curls to get stronger at benching ... cause benching requires BIG arms.

SWEET! I'm gonna switch to that routine. I started losing my hair at 16 and was completely bald at 25.

I've finally found that miracle routine that does ALL !

The thing is, the republicans have been moving way to the right lately. They have also become rather totalitarian. They did not used to be like that. They are going to keep fading unless the become more of a moderate party. The beauty of the constitution. If the left gets too left, or the right get...

I just don't understand. I always unrack my weights and try to place my equipment where it belongs upon completion. At least that way, it should be easy to tell if I'm done with any equipment. Oh Well.... Guess I just needed to vent... Guess you learned Gym etiquette when you started lifting .. or ...

Monday October 20 (+ increase since September 12th, overall since June 14th). Beginning in October, I pulled back 5% and created a new routine based on Bill Starr and Mark Ripptoe (removing Biceps and Triceps). The routine progresses at a slower but consistent rate. This routine should fit well wit...

Sorry I was in a rush this morning when I made that rant. So I wanted to clear some things up and I am dissapointed in myself for using sterotypes, shame on me :sad: It is very difficult NOT to generalize or make stereotypes during election times since that's how most of the media categorizes infor...

Do you honestly think that all McCain supporters are racist, ignorant hillbillys? Well take the 25% approval rating of bush and transfer all those people over to mcain.

I don't know whether to hold up McCain in high respect after that...or hate him because of the type of people that support him. They referred to Obama as an Arab and someone who is a terrorist. Hah...
