Re: Marijuana Dispensary Next Door?

We had one across the street. No problem at all.

there was also a yoga studio next to that and a nice little cafe. Didn't affect anything...........I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: Performing Barbell row after years of Chronic Cardio Syndrome

Re: working out while sick?

Re: Sumo Deadlift Form

Re: hyperpronation??

VFF's usually don';t solve the problem.........I'd get on there with a lacrosse ball and start diggin'!
