I don't know if we can agree to diagree as this seems a pretty important concept to understand. In every squat video i've checked out, the persons forearm is in line with their torso, or back from their torso. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=7IkyiekPIrg&NR=1 Are her arms forward or back??

Phil's Journal.

I've finally gone ahead with the idea of writing numbers down. No longer will i have to remember where my Bench or Deadlfit 'is at' when i get to the gym, and more importantly i can see, time wise, how i'm progressing.

Two statements that sum up the state of the world for what it is. 1. There are more obese people than there are starving people in the world. 2. The world spends 12 times more money on military expenditure than it does on foreign aid. Until those trends are reversed i can't see where we're heading a...

Admittedly Doc what i did write was an over-simplification of the issue. My youngest brother suffers form ADHD, now as he has grown older he seems to have lost many of his childhood symptons. He went from someone who was literally climbing the walls and nearly being put into 'special needs' whilst a...

If I were doing something like that for 3-4 days without sleep, I'd want the guy next to me to be on amphetamine! The article is interesting, especia...
