Re: What are you built for?

I wish I knew the answer to this question. My best lift in the gym is deadlift, unfortunately it also causes me injuries. I was above average in basketball as a teen but nothing special. I had a table tennis table in my crib, and as bating some adults at a young age.

Re: French Impression of US Soldiers in Afghanistan

Brits could hump some heavy ass rucks all day, super fit fuckers. Lithuanians looked scary. Italians were sunbathing in Salerno, not a pretty site.

Re: How Weak Is Too Weak?

If you look at heights and weights of nfl kickers and punters most of them are over 200 lbs these days. Janikowski and Steve Weatherford of the giants are studs in the weightroom.

Re: Wrestling Observer on the Olympic wrestling ouster

Karelin training (part 1): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxvWbnFVH_o&feature=youtube_gdata_player The music alone is inspirational as fuck, never mind the sweet KB moves (of which there are even more in part 2). Karelin & Denisov may just be the Russian And1 dream team! Look at him at 1:45 playing...

Re: WTF!?!

Has anyone watched olympic taekwondo? That is a boring sport, that hardly resembles a contact sport, certainly it does not have the history or popularity of wrestling. Judo is more interesting than taekwondo, but again not the history of wrestling. Boxing and wrestling should be untouchable.

Re: Dragon Door/RKC (RIP)

Re: Junior Seau RIP

Junior Seau, Derrick Thomas, Reggie White, Sam Mills, I'm sure I'm omitting a couple two, some of the premier defensive players of the 90s all gone now. Very sadd.

Wrist Strengthener

Ordered a pricey toy from UK ($136 with shipping, perhaps if $ improves can be a $10 savings). Arrived within a week. It's designed to mimic the motion of reverse bending. I was always curious about bending, but also to lazy to go to Home Depot to buy supplies. I asked David Horne (for those that no...
