Nick - You're on! For even more motivation, maybe we should put a log of our WOD's and dietary intake in the "workout logs" section of the message board.

Re: Can't Keep Lower Back Straight on DLs

Re: Re-Usable stuff

well- i have no idea where espom surrey is, but we like to put sawdust in/on our local motocross track. when you mix it in the soil it helps hold moisture and keeps the dust down.
