Hi Dean, I'd recommend that you repost this query over in the 'general' forum, where you put up your cycling question. I believe you'll get more responses there. I personally do not believe that pressups are as effective as the bench press, but I think there are other ways you can work your chest wi...

<<The thermogenics upposedly raise the body's core temperature a bit so that it supposedly burns a few more calories than normal.<< This whole notion makes me smile. MY body's temperature seems to run on HIGH all the time. Me and about another million or so women who refuse to take hormones to reduc...

Learn some meditation and relaxation techniques for stress. I have no faith in hermogenics personally, and though I've only seen brief, outrageous commercials on tv for cortisol blockers. Seen enough of those though, to set my crap-detector off. Running might be good for you. Burns fat AND reduces s...

Tim! I was sure I HAD posted a reply to Christine, but..obviously it never came through. I'm sorry Christine! Anyway, Tim's given you good advice, as far as working out. I wouldn't want to discourage you, because I know plenty of young mothers who are in FANTASTIC shape. But it doesn't happen easily...

Michael, I doubt you'll find anyone here who would argue in favor of training to failure. There are exceptions of course, so there might be a few. I'd certainly suggest that you save failure for the platform. If you are not competing, then I'd say it should be a rare thing. And yes, form should be a...

Hey Tim! I got a bad link when I tried to clik on the 'joan and bryce' link..but.. I wonder if that's the bryce I used to know from some of the other boards? Sounds like it could be, as he was always a big proponent of BW work, and strongman stuff. Do you still communicate with him? I wonder how he ...

Hi Boster, I don't have a very good relationship with my Abs. I mean... I haven't seen them in YEARS, but, I know PLENTY of people who have great looking abs, and plenty who struggle for that 6-pack. I do believe that it's genetic in some regards. I mean, I always thought it was just a matter of get...

I am not really sure about the elliptical and I will believe the stairstepper for now. The bike, now here I am finding a hard time. A treadmill is basically the same as running and running burns WAY more calories than riding a bike. So unless there is some large difference created by the machines I...

If I am not watching my calories and instead, I am looking for some tasty vegetables to get my daily amounts of vitamins and minerals in, is a Caesar salad still good? Basically, I'm asking if the benefits of the salad itself outweigh the negatives of the dressing, and by how much. Well, sure, but....
