      I understand the man knows his stuff but I have seen him squat and I wasn't very impressed with his form or weight for that matter. Thanks for the link though.

          I like this one "Trust me, if you do an honest 20 rep program, at some point Jesus will talk to you. On the last day of the program, he asked if he could work in"

          I swear after around 15 reps of squats I see the Flying Spaghetti Monster laughing and pointing at me, for the remaining 5 reps!

            Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.
