Re: CDC says 1 in 3 now obese...

I work in cardiology and I believe this. Some people do not fall into the BMI but in my experience it is not due to too much lifting.

Re: Anyone believe Herschel Walker's claim of only doing Bodyweight Exercises?

genetics plays a role as well. When he was at georgia in the early 80's he was a beast. He has also been doing body weight stuff in crazy amounts since he was a teenager.

Re: Gslp

GLSP also incorporates conditioning into their programming, similar to 70's big. I am going to be giving it a go come mid August and see where it takes me.

Re: Rob O makes Muscle & Fitness

I thought it was a good article but they messed up the sample workout he gave. It was supposed to be 10 squats @ 315, 20 front squats @ 225, and then 30 overhead squats. Not the 10, 10, 10 that they...
