Hamstring off the floor? He's tall, so I'd expect his knee angle to be rather small, taking the hamstrings largely out of the movement right off the floor. It'd be only quad/glute right there...?

If you're going to supplement, Omega-3 would probably be a better place to start.

If you're actually coughing, that indicates a more wide-spread issue. I wouldn't call that "minor". Working out with a cough seems like a bad idea, health wise.

That ties in with that other recent article link speculating that half-assed low carb was useless. That wasn't a study of low carb, it was a study of half-assedness.

It is just where you end up when you change your position to fit the facts, rather than spin the facts to fit your beliefs. Socialist vs non-socialist isn't about factual differences, it's about what you care about. Socialists care about equality of outcome, whereas non-socialists care about equali...

callipygian50, "disconnect" doesn't imply he is wrong. It was a reference back to my discussion of a communication gap. Back to the real discussion, Ironman has answered the original question. He thinks that even if a libertarian believes abortion is a form of murder, a libertarian would not crimina...

If you start out weighing 500 lbs, losing 4-5 lbs a week is probably a quite attainable safe average for a year.

Re: Classic question - do you avoid the gym with a cold?

the cold is fine - its just me functioning a little less, few bouts of sweating/temperature, very mild dizzyness (nothing thats going to drop a bar on me/someone else) - mainly breathing is off - its certainley not flu type. Bouts of fever from a minor cold is a bit of a contradiction. I'll work ou...

Ooh never heard of that. Sounds intriguing, and possibly quite difficult, will give those a try today.

The question you pose appears to attempt to show that libertarians thinking abortion should be legal exhibits some logical inconsistency. I just stated the exact opposite of that in my last message (and have stated/implied it before as well). The rest of your message seems to hinge on ignoring that...

I work out exclusively in the evening, followed immediately by a protein shake, then shower and food, and within another hour or so, bed. After switching to primal/paleo eating I've continuously lost body fat while gaining muscle (I'm down 30 lbs since the time of the switch). 2 out of 3 days, my bi...

SSC? Steady-state cardio? As in, a slow jog? If all you want to do is burn calories and cut weight right now for this week, I think steady cardio may be the winner. Isn't that what most fighters do? AFAIK wrestlers/boxers/etc do steady cardio and heat, not HIIT. However, that's missing the point. Al...
