quick question, after reading many articles, incluiding several on body building .com, and even googlling it, I found that sprints actually give you the best of both worlds but you actually have to do them at least 3 to 3 times a week with good intensity. From what I read they increase fat loss dra...

I use the fusion, with out the vibrating, but I did have a mach 3 with that shook and that worked just as well. To get a close shave, I shave after a shower, then put a hot wash cloth on my face for 1 minute to get it saturated, after I put on the shaving cream, I take an old tooth brush and scrub a...

Hey Robert, I'm pretty sure I was the one who recommended practical programming to you, I hope that you've found it worth the money, it explained a lot to me.

Robert B- I said 1-2 Months because I've looked into it and even did a spread sheet to see what it would look like. To me it looked like a pretty intense workout with large gains and I'm a middle aged man, I don't think I could make gains on it for more than that length of time, if that. Rippetoe ha...

Hey Doc- Most folks round these parts (have to say that with a southern drawl) think it's a castrated turkey. It's actually just part of some old cheer: Hoki, Hoki, Hoki, Hy. Techs, Techs, V.P.I. Sola-Rex, Sola-Rah. Polytechs - Vir-gin-ia. Rae, Ri, V.P.I. Virginia Tech is short for Virginia Polytech...

Re: programming sprints

it talks about sprinting at like 80% or 90% of your max. I don't think I could even tell, my two speeds are "fast" and "walk". I like to sprint, but I know what you mean, I couldn't tell you if I was doing 80% or 90%, I just run s fast as I can. Only suggestion I have, is that when I run I use a he...

Deadlift got 285 lb for 8 reps, was on the last set of wave 3 of my 5/3/1 workout, wore a belt (usually don't but my back felt a little sore).
