Kpj *They can be good for teaching you to brace and use your abs properly. Wear them a notch loose but when lifting make sure your belly is pushing against it. However, most people aren't wearing them loose for this reason.... I started using the belt for this purpose, just as a reminder. I also use...

I once saw a flock of bluebirds playing with a feather, one would grab it its beak fly around awhile while the others chased it, then it would drop it and another bird would grab it before it hit the ground. This went on for a long time, I had never seen birds playing before and haven't seen it sinc...

Speaking just for myself, I wouldn't super-set any of the big 4 lifts, Bench overhead press, squat, or deads. I use way to much energy on those, and 2 minutes to recover between bench presses seems short to me. I take my time on those. Any accessory lift I think its fine, I usually time 90 seconds b...

I haven't done them in about 4 months, but I'll start throwing in a set or 3 with summer coming up. Rows and chip ups or pull ups, (whatever you want to call it, I alternate grip each set anyway) keep them in respectable shape.

hoosegow- they have a football team up there, but they are working on getting a Professional team.

Sorry about the fence sitting, I'll try and be more strait forward in the future.

Thought it was a good game, didn't care for the outcome but I didn't loose any sleep over it.

Pittsburgh 27 Green Bay 24,

I'm not a fan of Ben Rothenhoweveryouspell it, big pervert, but I hate the Packers more. As a life long fan of my woeful Lions(can't call me a fairweather fan), I can not in any way pull for the fudge packers.

Anyway, I don't know much about women.
Had to laugh, been married almost 15 years, have a daughter and that statement is the same as the day I was born.

First, I'm no expert and second, I just started doing these, but box squats
the Dave Tate way might really help.

I wouldn't do that to you Hoosegow

I'll find someone else to spot my assisted/weighted dips.

Maybe California would be a better choice.

I was humbled last night-starting doing box squats (just below parallel), and not only did I have to check my ego at the door, the doorman stepped on it and kicked it.

I think I'll move to Texas just to annoy Hoosegow.

He was cutting corners, he was doing assisted, bodyweight and weighted dips all at the same time, maybe he's on to something (or more likely on something).

Doc asks So, what's the MOST dangerous animal in Africa? Dangerous to humans, that is. I would guess the mosquito. On a random note, the drill slipped while I was building my squat box and I managed to put a screwdriver bit through the middle of my thumbnail, lots of blood, felt great too. (':violen...

Has anyone here ever seen the Milky Way, with no enhancement? I've always wanted to, but it's always cloudy here. I've seen it plenty of times on a clear night. One time the night sky was red, an effect of the northern lights, it was pretty cool. More snow coming, I have a very long, steep driveway...

The Lions lose all the time, thanks Matt Millen, most hated man in Detroit.

I started building my squat box tonight, I need one more piece of lumber and I'll finish it tomorrow.

I'm pretty sick of winter, it's much harder living on the side of a mountain then living in the city.
