Re: Mace workout

Those are the famous (or infamous) Hindu Squats. I like air squats (heels on the ground) better, or overhead squats with a stick or oly bar for reps.

Re: Why is golf so exhausting for me.

I need to insert a couple of folk stories - I call them that because I can't certify their validity.

Re: Walk a mile in 8 minutes.

Your friend needs to check his facts. A sub seven minute walking mile is right up there with the four minute mile.

Don't worry. This is normal due to refrigeration. I pour my fish oil into a jigger about 1/2 hour before taking it. By then it's up to room temp and the chunks are gone.
