    Mine got huge (relatively speaking) when I started running on my toes regularly. The impact is 1.5-3x bodyweight every single step, most of that goes into your calves, and a short running workout...

    I don't know what the ingredients are in that, but cats need to eat far more than just muscle meat. Even high-quality kibble has lots of ingredients. Giving cats a raw food diet involves being very...

    It boggles my mind that the 6-8 meals/day concept was brought over to people trying to lose weight, when it is used by body builders to add calories for gaining mass.

    Aside from the anger and the ridiculous image at the bottom, you've got some decent points here. Except for the fetish part, but maybe that's because I just don't have any idea what "commercials"...

    1. I find that the rowing machines don't work well for me for sprinting, as I'm almost resting for half the cycle. If it works for you, great.

    I spent a month or so dealing with greasy hair and not using any shampoo at all, just a scalp rub and rinse every day in the shower. Now the oil levels in my hair are natural and balanced and...

    I don't live in my home state anymore, and don't pay for cable. The only sport I've ever enjoyed watching was football, and only my local team, which isn't always available OTA. This means the only...

    The thing to remember with bench press (and all the other lifts that you mentioned) is that they are considered to be compound lifts, requiring use of every muscle you can engage. Your lats are very...

    A leg press is not going to come close to doing for you what a proper squat will do. Walking on your toes has nothing to do with it. You should learn to squat properly. Do it without weight if you...

    I've definitely had low BP for a while, until I figured out that I needed salt. I never liked or needed to add salt before, but now I crave it on occasion, and try to use it liberally.

    Meh. The devil is in the details. I think it is telling that berries and rice (or some other grain) were both listed as "carb dense" foods for men.

    I can't argue that low carb is ideal for...

    Use honey or real maple syrup.
    Use a tiny bit of real sugar if you need to.

    For all that people try to tell me that Stevia is natural and healthy, I still think it tastes the...

    Sprinting is a max-effort workout. Do it once, maybe twice a week at most. Every other week is okay too. The rule says "Sprint Occasionally". It has really high recovery demands.

    If I do this I have a tendency to ignore my weaknesses, which holds back my strengths from getting even stronger.

    I use it instead of protein powder in smoothies. I add it last to the blender, and make sure to wash the blender and glass right away. It's delicious, and the smoothie covers the thickness of it.
