Using Cheat Codes While Playing Games: Does It Really Help?

When you start playing any game it is not necessary that you are going to win each and every single match you play even if you have finest gaming skills. Many times 2 or 3 consecutive loss shatters your confidence and after that either you stop playing that game or you start searching for some kind of hacks which will help you to cross that hurdle because of which you are losing again and again. Cheat codes are developed by the developers of the game only. Hacks are part of the game only and…

15 March 2016

I haven't had access to reliable internet the past several days. Rather than bore anyone with the last few training sessions I will just state that the sessions are progressing along the lines of the last several months. I do feel like I am starting to stall on this program and this will be the last week I run this. I am planning to do a day of calculating 1 rep maxes this coming Saturday and then I will begin a program "inspired by" Jim Wendler's Building the Monolith" program. I…
