    Weight Training Thread

    So I had a number of travel plans for work and play recently so getting to a gym wasn't guaranteed. Instead (and to be certain I kept up the exercise regime) I stupidly agreed to be a part of a friend's fitness challenge/initiative: the 2014 Le Tour de Push-up. Basically involves doing a...

    Weight Training Thread

    OK so followed the advice given on here doing 3 sets 12 reps for the exercises (was already doing a 2:2) and can I just say WOW! After two gym sessions, already noticed that the change have 'confused' my muscles. I have had minor cases of DOMS in each area worked since Sunday, so happy days. As...

    Juan, I do the rot cuff exercises due to the huge range of movement in my shoulders from years and years of competitive swimming (50-60km weeks) and waterpolo. It just helps tighten the shoulder up so I don't get any shoulder impingement doing heavy shoulder exercises. Also I seem to need to...

    Thanks Mr Fear, should be pretty helpful and will put suggestions to good use. Oh and the DB shoulder press is just the halfway down where as the BB is full way down.

    What happened to flight MH370?

    I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories either. But if Airforce one had have gone down with a president on board, I can guarantee it would have been found by now.

    Recently (two months ago) started going to the gym and am fast becoming a junkie. Did legs and biceps last night. A message to underhand gripped chin ups...my biceps will be hating you tomorrow.

    I would not be surprised to see Wilfried Bony move on from Swansea at the end of this season. He would fit into the system at Everton well and from the few games I have seen him play this season when fully fit could score 20 goals at a club like Everton.

    What happened to flight MH370?

    The conspiracy theory I heard was that the Chinese had developed a new form of high temperature superconductor technology and that 4 of the Chinese national scientists were on board the flight along with samples of the said superconductors.

    Should smoking be made illegal for people born after the year 2000?

    I totally understand the point and haven't missed it at all. Similar laws have been introduced for provisional drivers licences in Australia in relation to engine size for cars and power to weight ratios for motorcycles. Whilst I agree with those laws being introduced, I still believe that...

    Should smoking be made illegal for people born after the year 2000?

    I think there are other steps required first prior to going down this somewhat more extreme path (which I am pretty sure will never happen). Plain packaging needs to be introduced first. Duties and taxes need to be raised on cigarettes as well. I know that both of these things combined in...

    I've just finished reading A Dance with Dragons by George RR Martin. It is the 5th of 7 planned books in the series titled A Song of Ice and Fire which is what the HBO series Game of Thrones is based on. Amazing series with so many intricately connected characters, plots, subplots and twists...

    Are you religious because of or inspite of?

    Some selective schools, in Australia at least, require that the child is baptised as part of acceptance and enrollment. I assume it would be very similar in Australia. I know that is part of the reason some parents baptise children. I do agree it is a bit of a cop-out though.

    Yeah Dave, it is sad isn't it. But when you consider how much they paid which is reportedly AUD 11.5m, then it is pocket change for them. Hell Man City could buy AVFC from the money found in the car ash tray. What would we be worth? GBP 70m-100m if we were lucky?
