    Spread Your Wings.

    The "I could have been a contender" line of thinking is very dangerous, I believe. Its better to have the type of thinking that you illustrate in your post, much better. Funny, I was always picked last for kickball (and other games). This was before TKD, of course. Later, I lost interest in...

    Well, as I understand it, "The Girls of Crossfit" will do the trick. I have a friend who is a US Marine -- he is one tough guy and very fit. He and his Marine friends do that Crossfit for fun and fitness. He swears by it. He said that I should do it, but of course, it does not fit my needs...

    Yes Sir, and, Rippetoe's program is designed primarily for high school athletes. I am 42, and wish to baby my knees more than they do. Things will progress, like the tortoise and the hare. I'm having a great time of it. Safe is always important here. The lower back, too. I do not wish to...

    Yes Sir, I do know! This is going to be one tough cookie to crack. I have already had to "reset" on this quitting smoking, but I keep thinking about that rocket guy. He was met with all kinds of trouble, but he did not give up, and he finally realized his goal! To bluekey88: I have heard...

    Yes, its bad news. It is inconvenient to go through such a major life change as giving up smoking. But, I am weaning myself off and plan to quit (kick) on Thursday, so wish me luck. If this goes down right, I will soon be as strong as a Hung-Ga Man! No joke. Once I can squat 1.5 times my...

    Good News: I went to see the Strength Trainer. He "signed off" on all of the motions -- I do them correctly. He had to show me the powerclean, but I know it now, too. So, I can do the "Five Glorious Exercises": 1) The Squat 2) The Deadlift 3) The Bench Press 4) The Power Clean 5) The...
