• The Squat Is Mac Daddy King Of All Exercises

    There was a time when I had I told myself I’d never be here again. But that never word is a dangerous one. It is a word that has a nasty habit of coming back later to be eaten. Never say never they say, but I never listen. And...

  • I’m About To Do Something And This Is Why

    Some people are natural born athletes. They can run and leap and bend and twist and do things with an alarming ease that prove difficult to mere mortals. They have fit and athletic bodies regardless of what they eat, it seems, and they can do many things wrong and...
