    I barely use dumbbells at the moment. After a tour in Iraq, I'm in the process of rebuilding my "base" strength, and all my workouts are done with an Olympic weight set (plates, barbell, rack,...

    I'm a big fan of dips too. They get me more sore than anything else I do. I alternate sets of ring dips and bar dips. If you've never done ring dips, give 'em a try. Big time compound...

    The dude who invented chiropractic wasn't educated in medicine or science. He was a spiritualist. The whole scam is based on the idea that you can alter the body's "life force." Uhh...there's no...

    I have some rings I hang from my pull-up bar to do ring dips. My gym has rings hanging from the ceiling, and I use them to do muscle-ups sometimes.

    Dogs are dogs--can't expect them to understand concepts that seem elementary to us. Truth is, there are a lot more negligent owners than stupid dogs.

    I don't think your routine (or what I gather of it) looks even remotely like Starting Strength. If you want to do SS, get the book and follow the programming laid out in it. From what you posted, I...

    I tend to agree with the others that 6 weeks is long enough to seek out a gym. However, if you can't do that, there are a lot of workouts that require little or no equipment. They may not make you...

    I agree with this. Whether or not I like their policy, I wouldn't stoop to lying about my intentions.

    Right, and my experience was that I started to do distance running when I quit. To your point, I think it would be more helpful to concentrate on cardio/conditioning exercise if you're trying to use...

    I don't anymore. But I did go to a small university with a weight room shared by all the sports and the general population.

    Sounds like we can add your coach to the long list of high school football coaches who are total douchebags. It's understandable that the football team should get their time in the weight room, but...

    Stumbled upon the first episode last night. It was good, and I'm excited to see the rest. I would have liked more backstory as with BoB. Maybe I missed it during the first part of the show, but I...

    My basement is my home gym, so I don't have to deal with it there. But I spend a lot of time on the road, and if you think neighborhood gyms are bad, hotel gyms are even worse. I'm at a hotel right...
