    Not at all! Leangains.com swears by it. No one would argue that he is jacked and shredded. More calories on lifting day and you will be fine.

    Stretch and warm up. Just enough to get the blood pumping. Body weight workouts can build amazing physiques. If you continue having an unusual amount of pain then see a doctor.

    They looked bigger than 10 pounds to me. I could be wrong. I just assumed the bar was average weight. Still doesn't sound right when it hits the dirt. 100lbs isn't light even for some guys either.

    Squats are definitely the most intimidating in my book. Sometimes I walk into the gym and just own the bar, other times, it owns me.

    I think that video is a gag or something (at least I really hope it is). The weights just don't sound right when they drop them. Plus, those girls are seriously strong if they are pressing that much...

    That stinks. I hate it when places don't keep up maintenance on equipment. My apartment "fitness center" is a joke. Half the equipment has "out of order" signs and they never keep the wipes stocked....

    Crossfit is definitely a fitness movement with exponential growth. My hometown still only has one box though. Not so much a choice as it is a lack of options.

    3 times a week. Much more and you begin to over train and your gains will stall. It's a marathon, not a sprint (metaphorically). Slow and steady definitely wins the muscle building race.

    You really don't need much of anything else. You'd have a pretty sweet little set up if you collected or made all of that equipment. Anything else would just be gravy.
