Re: When is enough enough?

I think enough is enough when you think it is so. There's nothing wrong with being content with your times/lifts/etc and simply migrating to the maintenance mode of GPP.
That said, you may indeed...

Re: Suggestion and help for thrusters and squats.

Randy,

I don't know that this is the place to get the best advice on this question. Have you been to Rogue in Gahanna? Maybe swing by there and talk with them about it.

Re: Steroids or DesSTROID?

Re: What do folks think of Dave Tate video?

Re: Steroids or DesSTROID?

For many decades, American society has been blamed for perpetrating on American women via the media the unattainable body, complexion, lifestyle, etc. This, obviously, leads to issues of...

Re: Steroids or DesSTROID?

The whole steroids debate is pretty comical, when you think about it. Imagine for a minute a hallucinatory drug that allows a Hollywood actor to better become his movie role and, thus allows him to...

Re: MIKKO & Finnish Bootcamp?

Derek,

Ever heard the belief that Americans only look at an atlas or globe when we invade a country? It's our way of keeping up with geography. Hahaha...sad, but true.

Thanks Kara. There's a studio about a mile from my house and they just started offering bikram. I think I'll swing by and talk to them.
