    wow, you're just not backing off those squats are you? Great work all around
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    rack pulls are when you set up the barbell at a desired height in the rack, resting on the pins. you then deadlift it from that height. it's a way to isolate, or take part of the movemnent out..such as setting the bars high to do more work with the back.

    Good workin, coke...

    That is a good and accurate description of what rack pulls are Patrick - they really are deadlifts but not from the ground level, mines are probably the second pin if I recall correctly…the lower back machine is sort of like sitting in a chair and leaning back with effort.

    Much luv 2 y'all and U know this is true…I'm trying to round out my training as best as I can and gradually so. Glad to see my peeps come say hello at any time!!
