Re: Need expert opinion on kids and squatting.

I started Olympic and PowerLifting at 10yrs old. I went through injuries in high school and college - sports related - but my orthopedic surgeon confirmed they were driven by the extent of activity,...

But, from a...

Re: Overgeared for lifting?

For some reason, many folks in many sports feel that you have to be a top level competitor to reap the benefits of optimized gear - but it's often that the reverse is true. More often, an amateur...

Re: Should you run before or after strength training?

Sprint workouts are not cardio. Sprinting power has nothing to do with oxygen uptake, but has more to do with explosive acceleration, and raw top speed, which is about power transmitted to the ground...

Re: Any tips for squatting and keeping back straighter/more vertical.

Re: Average Joe vs the Elite few - when do we know we are good at something?

A few respondents here have suggested that people that post their results online are more apt to be higher level athletes on average, but I'm not 100% convinced that such is the case.

Re: ankle mobility help needed

Dare: To clarify, my comments were directed at the OP and his ankle mobility issue, not to yours.
