Re: Kimbo?

I agree that Kimbo would be destroyed by anyone with serious experience, but remember that he only has 3 fights under his belt. With his basic skills, and expecially because he's training with Bas...

Re: Black Box

Tim, I have a couple of goals right now. I've done a charity boxing event the past two years but that's more short term if I decide to fight again. My main goals are 1) to set a great example for...

Re: LEO question - Appropriate Attire?

Something that a lot of people don't think about and I highly suggest is to be clean shaven if you aren't already. I think it looks sharp and you'll be banking that the department you're trying to...

Re: Fedor Vs Randy!!!!

That video was very wrong on a lot of levels. Adrian, I have a lot of respect for you, but understand that you've screwed me because there are things that you just can not un-see. Thanks.

Re: Success...sort of

I know that I had a slight arch in my back. Is this correct or should my back be completely straight?

Back extentions

I'm assuming that on today's WOD it's not calling for any weight on the back extentions. Is it kosher to add weight or just leave it as is with just movement with no weight on it?

Re: To all you cops out there!
