phayze - I have seen how close your SG'ing is to your TV on your youtube clips - you don't need to see FOX to have additional motivation to smash it!

If you watched "Bill O'Reilly" you might cause some unintentional damage to your furniture.

An alternative to going to a lighter SH is a line I like from the (UNDERRATED!) "13th Warrior" with Antonio Banderas [as Ahmad] ... [Ahmahd is given a heavy Viking sword] Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: I cannot lift this. Herger the Joyous: Grow stronger. I remember when [as a desk bound pencil pusher] I starte...

There's snow business like...

Living in Australia we wouldn't know snow from clay [so to speak], but who knew someone has done a STUDY into snow shoveling as exercise!

Looks all too complicated - better just get a 16lb SH.

I think they (Guy Ritchie) was looking for a "realistic" Holmes, who is portrayed as an eccentric cokehead (not that there's anything wrong with that), so Mr Downey-J didn't need to extend his acting range considerably to play the part. I recall as Tony Stark he may have used a little sledge work in...

Now you mention it, I believe on one of the scrolls that King Monkey obtained from Buddha in India had a line: "The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

Hmm, Call of the Wild - a domesticated dog who returns to his primeval nature after becoming a sled pulling dog in the Yukon ... sounds like a new exercise in itself there!

Chapter XX of "John Barleycorn" (1913), the autobiography of famed author Jack London (1876 - 1916).

Why pushups?

Hello - I thought the idea was just one exercise routine per day? Isn't adding push-ups / chin-ups broaching into additional areas? I am a new follower of your exercise and have a fibreglass handled 12lb hammer - wrapped conveniently with three blue 24" square cloth nappies that every parent buys, t...
