Re: Windfall = a significant add to my home gym. Any thoughts?

Could make a good case for either one. I have found in my home gym I use the rower a lot more than the GHD. You can get a cheap Yukon/off brand GHD, although having had one of these I'd stick with...

Re: My garage is like the inside of a car!

Yes, I've used both. Definitely like them both, most recently I tried the banana cream Combat and it tasted so good I bought the biggest tub.

Re: Knee Gets Cold When It Is Bent For Extended Periods Of Time

I know you don't want to hear this, but if you are getting a cold sensation that tends to indicate lack of blood flow. Which, if true, could be dangerous to your knee. I would go to an orthopedist...
