The next time you read some study on the BMI (Body Mass Index) or how exercise affects a small group of untrained college-age men, remember that the data they are examining was picked because it was cheap. It wasn't picked because it was the right data; it was picked because... Continue reading

Layered cardboard is still the best method I have found for leveling a garage gym platform. As for 4x8 stall mats they're available at Bigger Faster Stronger, however getting 4x6 mats at your local tack & feed store might be more economical. Just fill the extra space with more plywood.

When the definition of the problem is fatally flawed - i.e. using data from the BMI measure to define obesity - then it's highly unlikely that any conclusions or solutions derived from that data will be correct.
