I use to buy into this also. But, from personal experience of introducing some LSD back into my workouts, I no longer believe that there is "no point". LSD allowed me to address some very specific...

Re: double-unders

Re: Partying

Enjoy yourself, just learn to do so responsibly. I have always enjoyed social drinking, I have just never liked to drink even half what my friends do.

Re: Working out in the morning
