it's not unlike saying "If you have just started to read Einstein, then reading Chaucer won't do anything for your reasoning ability. At least not the first paragraph"

Caroline wants a pug, someday
That's all cool with me; but we need someone around watching out for the hardwood floors until he's trained

Re: Random crap

Today at the gym I saw a guy doing box jumps with a barbell on his back. Instead of a plyo box (we have two) he was using a bench. He lifted the bar off a rack facing outwards, took a wide stance, did a quarter squat with his knees caving inwards, and jumped, landing on the bench in front of him wi...

Re: Losing Strength...Age?

I'm a bit more inspired for having read that. Good on you for pressing on and taking care to value each and every day now.
