by Joseph Last week was a good one in that I got some pressing in. I'm going to lay it out for you now. Monday, October 9, 2017 135x6x1 255x5x1 255x1x1 225x5x1 225x4x1 225x1x1 225x3x2 225x4x1 I felt that I could floor press 255 instead of 250 so I went for it. As you could see, I got off to a good start, but DOMS kicked in big time. I didn't want the exercise to be a fail, so I reduced weight down to 225 and did multiple sets at that weight. As always, I pressed with my legs fully... Continue reading

by Joseph I did a little better last week. I had a bit more rest and this helped somewhat. I hit the gym last Monday and did a okay. Monday October 2, 2017 135x6x1 250x5x1 250x4x2 250x2x1 250x5x1 Although I had planned to do 250x5x3, I wound up doing more sets. I felt pretty good about it. So, I decided to do more floor presses on Friday.

Buying the Best Golf Clubs for Beginners Buying the Best Golf Clubs for Beginners By: Jimmy Bonner A new set of clubs for beginners is really not necessary; in fact the higher end clubs can be a hindrance on your game. Golf is unique in the fact that the sport requires a group of instruments, and equipment to play in full. Many sports like baseball or basketball just require a few items that are used by an entire team. Golf being an individual sport this aspect changes into a need for the right set of clubs. Golf clubs are broken... Continue reading

A Different Picture Of Heart Disease A Different Picture Of Heart Disease By: Ng Peng Hock In Feb 2006, researchers reported that many women suffer from a fundamentally different heart disease from men and is easily missed from standard tests. Moreover, women do not seek treatment as early as men, and women's hearts are smaller and their blood vessels are more easily damaged. Another possible reason is that the disease could manifest itself differently. As a result, women are less likely to survive heart attacks than men. Many women are still unaware that heart disease and stroke have emerged as... Continue reading

The best way to do this is to get them talking. When you approach a prospective customer, it can be a challenge to get the customers attention, let alone getting them to strike up a conversation with you. Most people don't want to be bothered, their perception of a sales person is that of a used car sales man or the Macy's girl who approaches... Continue reading

by Joseph I didn't do very well this time. As you know, I planned to do three sets at 270 pounds, based on my 295 pound one rep max, this is entirely do-able. My body's strong enough for it, my fitness and conditioning have prepared me for this. But, hitting the gym with less than five hours sleep a night can put a damper on well-laid plans. Here's how it all went down: Monday September 25, 2017 135x6x1 270x3x1 245x1x1 225x5x1 I went into it tired, barely completing 6 reps at 135 pounds. I did 270 pounds because I knew...

by Joseph Last week I decided to challenge myself to increase my barbell floor to 400 pounds by December 15, 2017. I'm off to a good start, and I'm posting my results from week 2. Monday September 18, 2017 I started out with a warm up set then went right to work. 135x10x1 250x6x1 250x4x1 250x3x2 250x2x3 The lifts were all good. I set the safety pins on the floor so that if I failed in a press, the bar would be prevented from landing on my chest. My legs were extended and I executed full arm extension during each...

The Fun of Fantasy Football The Fun of Fantasy Football By: Philip Nicosia Fifteen to eighteen million people play fantasy football every year-and the numbers are growing rapidly. In fantasy football, you "draft" or auction an imaginary team composed of real-life football players (this can include NFL professionals or college players). They then score points based on their actual performance in real games. Your fantasy tournament progresses in much the same way as the real football games. You go head-to-head, competing against another opponent each week. If your team scores the most points by the end of the season, and... Continue reading

Face Your Fears Submitted by: Sandra Prior It may be a natural response to avoid what we find scary - but that doesn't mean it's the best response. When people with phobias dodge whatever it is that fills them with terror and anxiety they usually compound the problem - sometimes to such an extent that it eventually cripples their lives. And that is worth avoiding. Specific phobias (excessive fear related to exposure to specific objects or situations) can affect up to one-third of the population at some point in their lives. Data released last year from a Stress and Health... Continue reading
