"I'll do it as long as I can, very enjoyable. yes foam rolling does help, also with any aches after the session but they still hurt a little."

"Thank you so much for all your help! I think I'm going to take a week off, maybe do some light weights or calisthenics over spring break, and then start the 5x5 routine when I get back! You've been an amazing help!"

"My body is pretty average. Definitely not shredded or huge, but don't have toothpick arms: somewhere right in the middle I guess. By volume I assume you mean too much weight, too many exercises, and basically too much everything? Is that…"

"This. Is what you stated your complete program or just "leg day"? Lets see all of it. What are your sets/ reps? Without being able to see it is impossible to make a conclusion regarding form. How is your diet? What is your recovery like?"

Marine Basic Training Graduation

Hello gentlemen! I could really use some help right now. My best friend is graduating from Marine Basic Training (in Parris Island) Friday morning and I am going to go watch because I am probably the closest thing to a family member he's ever had. My mom keeps reading online that the recruits were supposed to get packets that they would send out to be able to invite their family members. But he says that it is open to everyone. I honestly don't know a thing about what's going on. I was really…See More

US health care costs about four times as much as equivalent health care in other First World countries; US subways cost about eight times as much as equivalent subways in other First World countries...[A]ll of the numbers above are inflation-adjusted....And this is especially…See More

"Yeah I understand it, just wanted to point out that semantic shifts have happened with the Jewish race as well. Also, it's probably more justified than the other shifts for the reasons you mentioned, except for maybe the word negro."

Liam Strain replied to David R.'s discussion "Iron sharpens iron" in the group The Great Debate
"It has to do with how it is used.  A non-jewish person saying "Oh, you know Peter, he's a real Jew..." often carries some negative connotations. The way the term has been used by some, nearly puts in in a pejorative category -…"
