19 May was my 47th birthday. On the 20th I was gifted with a son. This is my 3rd child (2 girls and a boy now).
On the 23rd I thought I should do a strength challenge as part of my workout. So after I did my regular rack-pulls I kept going and ended up pulling 545lbs for a single. Not to bad.
The current workout is very intense. At the end of the week I will decide whether or not to try for another week or if it is time to change to something with less…Continue

Follow-up on my first post, Traction.
Woke up at 7 AM as planned (alarm clock form hell). Finished my morning routine, went to yoga class but lagged behind because of my wrist. Need to get it checked, don't think it should still be bothering me a week from the fall. Ran my errands, took a nap to try to forestall a developing migraine (failed). Had my online interview with the program…Continue

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, about 20-25% of all hip fractures occur in men, and the number is expected to increase by 310% by 2050. The stats should not be taken lightly, especially since…Continue
