Hi Bill.Just to add onto what Sonnygill mentioned, and I just found out about it a year or two ago, it's not necessarily all starchy foods that can cause this, but rather gluten. I was surprized to find out its more prevalent than I would have thought, one figure cited 1 out of 5 people, however I t...

Well, I personally don't know of any sports specific stuff for baseball pitchers, other than a good general program based in GPP (general physical preparedness), but I can tell you where to find lots of Baseball specifics. Go to athletes.com . From the main age, click on Choose a Sport, and from tha...

Hi Danchilela. Well, diet contributes greatly to fat loss, and I'm assuming you are familiar with that, so I'll just go at this from a training perspective. Most anything anerabic or aerobic will work, however, based on several studies by exercise physiologists (Stone, Berger, Kraemer, Fleck, and ma...

Nunya, I'm not sure what you are describing with "strength shoes". Back when I was a kid, late 50's, early 60's, my father bought a pair of iron boots, that had a hole in the heel, where you could put a DB bar in, and add weight. They could be used for a variety of different leg/hip movements. I ;ov...

Hey, I love that idea. I was watching the kid's show Zoom on PBS, and they were in their cooking sigment, and they beat up a bunch of egs, threw little pieces of whatever they liked (in this sgment it was broccoli, ham, cheese and tomato) into the muffin holes, and poured egg over them, then threw i...

Hi. I read your entry on the exrcize science board, and was a bit interested, and did a search on training for sailing. The only thing I could come up with was training in terms of skills, navigation, etcetera. However, sailing , in general, would require lots of GPP, general physical proparednes, e...

Hi VOK. Well, the simple and correct answer is that there is no one single "best" way. A periodized routine works ok (see the site for a good detailed description). Another approach is Byrce and others style of a type of training where you shoot for a number of lifts in a given time period, say 10-2...

Hey Nunya. Sonnygill hit it ight on the head when it comes to fat. I have never eaten much in the way of starches, and when the so called nutrition guru's came out with this low fat, low to moderate protein, high carb thing, pushing rice cakes and the rest of the low fat very processed stuff, the co...

Well, I happen to disagree with Ragu on the upper lower thing. He's got the squats in with his push day, and IMHO that's fine, and he's got some ham dominant in with pull, and thats fine. I do agree with Ragu that you might want to cycle in with some lower reps (say maybe go heavier with 5-7 or so, ...

Well, I don't know if you have to go hard core protein only, I've been there and done that, and it doesn't bother me in the least, but I think it's much healthier to add in fruits and veg. If you must eat bread, get some good stuff rather than that fluffy white sandwhich stuff, that is basically gar...

Well, I really can't tell as you weren't terribly descriptive on the snack before bed, and what type of sandwhich or cereal (most of the dry stuff is full of sugar and other additives). That being said, I don't think it's optimal at all. Check out the Nutrition section here on the site, plus these l...

Well, you're going back for an appointment with the Doc to check things out. Get a thorough evaluation, and then he can suggest a rehab program, or at least recommend a good phys therapist. Go with the rehab type program they recommend, and then when feeling fairly good with the broken arm, get back...

Good question Drew. It usually isn't discussed much. Here's how I do it. Let's take bench press because that seems to be everyones favorite, but it could apply to anything. First, after a general warmup, I take an empty bar and do some movements, maybe 8-10 or so, I don't really count. It's just to ...

Well, magicdad, that's a new one on me. Never heard of them being interrelated. Anyway, it sounded interesting, so I did a search on it . Came up with nothing. One thing I do know though, that if you are taking any of the prohormones to tesosterone, like DHEA or any of the andros, the temporary rise...

Hi Bill. I'd never heard of prostatitis. Prostate cancer, enlargened prostate, yes. And seeing as I'm of the age when it starts to become a problem, well I did a search on it, and found a government sponsored webite dedicated on information. http://www.prostatitis.org While I've never heard of an en...
