    I think a lot of it comes down to individuality. I lose weight quickly on low carb, but I never seem to get out of the flu and feel terrible. Some people feel great, and shouldn't be afraid of a...

    I like the trap bar. I don't use it exclusively, but like to rotate it in with the conventional deadlift when my shins are beat up.
