Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

David: you're right, Jack is no joke! He's not a large man, but he blazes through the course in amazing time. The Challenge is an interesting 'animal' in the sense that the course doesn't care what...

Re: Hanging rings and rope, drywall ceiling

You must have a pretty understanding landlord. Most property owners cringe at the thought of tenants doing anything to the walls/mounting objects.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

Jenna,

If you do a search on "mounting rings" it'll turn up a number of threads over the years that have great information to assist with your situation. Here is a link to one such thread:...

Thumbs up Re: Ross E's Infinite Intensity v. Coach Rut Dumbell Moves, Vol 1

Re: kids and carbs

Elliot,

Good post! As the parent of a one and four year-old, I can tell you that it is very difficult at times to feed the four year-old "correctly". My youngest isn't a challenge because she's at...
