Really? Baby tossing? I think we can all use Michael Jackson as a coach for that sport, oh wait that's baby dropping. Is baby tossing judged by getting into concentric rings or how far it goes? lol Doc you've been throwing out some nice little zingers lately. On a thread related note. I almost feel ...

As a note I use collars on the weights all the time. However, just to play the devil's advocate, which is worse? Possible injury and rehab or looking stupid for five minutes?

This discussion is like the chicken and the egg, someone will always find a way to argue either side. Fun tho! lol

Since there is a movie topic how about...

Music that pumps you up. I've been looking hard for truly motivational music. One of my friends who is huge into music said about a tape he has but wont listen to. Apparently if you have a psychotic thought then listen to it it'll make you do what you are thinking. Not sure how much I believe it but...

Keep in mind that not a single person starts out running at high speeds for long amounts of time. I have a friend at my gym who when he started out ran 5mph for 5 minutes or less and over the course of two years built up to running at 8mph for an hour straight. Now he simply maintains that. If you f...

Wow, I really agree with Skills 1 and 2. The other stuff is useful but seems mainly to promote the V Diet, which I'll read the link about later. Skill #1: Far too often I find myself rationalizing why I eat some garbage through the day or why I skip a workout. I try and try and try to keep myself mo...

How about the guy who uses the chest press machine with his elbows/shoulders up by his ears? I can't tell you how many times I've seen people do that. I want to ask them if they perform a normal bench press like that or if they have ever bench pressed. Another thing I love to see is a person get on ...

Favorite recipes/websites with recipes

So I am trying to embrace the more whole foods, less refined food.

I'm not a great cook, heck I'm not even a good cook imo. I've been searching for all kinds of recipes and found some that Im looking forward to trying.

So what are your favorite recipes and possibly websites you use for ideas?

I'd be inclined to agree with Tim on this. In a similar vein it's like the women at my gym complaining to the trainers that they have lost inches and not any weight. Well, gee, if you are losing inches, fitting into smaller clothing, feeling better, what's the problem? Maybe it is obvious to me but ...

Maybe I will just focus on the NNM workouts for a while. I guess my source of confusion is this. What would you consider global muscles and local muscles? By Eric Cressey's definitions: What are "global" and "local" muscles? Local muscles (also known as the deep muscular system) are extremely import...

Neanderthal no more question

Hi everyone, Last time I posted it was about back pain. That seems to be all gone after having seen a doctor and working on form with my exercises. Currently I am performing a full body routine three times a week. My workouts consist of: Chest Press: 3x10 Assisted Chins: 3x10 Deadlifts: 3x10 Squats:...

Thanks for the suggestions and support! Tried all the suggestions yesterday. Squeezed my shoulder blades together and down as per Jungledoc and felt the pain diminished greatly. It was to the point where I think I felt it because I expected to. As per Stephen I am now going to include incline chest ...

Interesting. The last time I did incline presses I did not have pain. So that means I should be working the traps as well then, right? Kind of feel I neglect them anyway. May just be dense but not following the horizontal/vertical movements to keep the shoulders in balance. Do you mean I should do r...

I try to keep the back and chest work even. Although, I tend use a pulldown machine, mixture of close and wide grip, and heavier weight on it than with the db press. Should I switch to bent over rows? I'll try bringing the shoulder blades together and down with a little arch in the low back tomorrow...
