By my thinking it's similair to when squatting, you have a lot more strength around the half/quarter squat position than you do coming out of the hole, so i would imagine that by keeping the hips higher, you would be maximising the strong part of the leg drive?

maybe include some trunk work where appropriate, like maybe lunges with a med ball/dumbell woodchop, or dumbell overhead squats, russian twists etc?

Yeah, i was actually using myprotein for a while now, but living in ireland meant i kept having 'logistical' issues with them, this is my first order from this other place, just to see if they're any better for delivery, if not i'll be back ordering from myprotein again, they are great in my opinion...

I think it would be turmeric you were recommended, see the link below for some other foods that support a healthy liver.

My Whey or the high (priced) whey!?

So with the recession i guess we're all looking to save a few pennies here and there but what price do we actually pay for some of these apparent bargains? Are the big name brands worth the extra cash? I know some of you guys in the U.S swear by Biotest products but they are way overpriced here in I...

I think this is typical of any discussion on any particular training method, there will be one side who will defend it to the death whereas the other side will flat out disagree with it's principals. As has been stated in many of these threads, there is no one size fits all and kpj's agree to disagr...

Just something i noticed, and hopefully people can shoot me down if i'm talking out of my backside, but you're working out every two days? and heavy total body every workout?, maybe your CNS isn't recovering fully thats why you find it hard to move up on some lifts? Seems like this workout would be ...

Unfortunately i'm not lucky enough to live in one of the port towns which as you say Tim, are well regarded for the selection and quality of fresh produce, i'm in the midlands and shops/markets are the only choices i have, and they aint great!

CLA = conjugated linoleic acid, found in meat and dairy, it has anti-carcinogenic, and antioxidant properties. Like Stuward said, humans originally did not evolve to eat grains, and followers of paleolithic type diets eliminate them altogether, so some would say that yes all cereals are bad for you ...
