Re: L-Muscle Up

Awesome Bob!

If I can somehow make it up there next week-end you will have to show me - then you can get a good laugh at me as I flail around in my futile attempts.

Re: Crossfit Dogs

Re: Pre-bed food

If I eat aything other than a light protein laden snack before bed I can't sleep. Too many carbs stokes the furnace and makes the heat pour out of me and its a miserable night.
