    Great article. Well written.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    That picture is adorable. Is that 'the' menacing pink towel, the one that marks the territory? There has to be some sort of subconscious bio marker involved here - something that we shade tree zoologists have missed.

    Awesome Q&A, very good info here.

    Justlost - cool.

    djreef - it is, in fact, THE pink towel. I was SPENT in that shot - I had just finished walking lunges out on the sidewalk in front of the gym.

    CODmaster - I love it!

    That pink towel scares off people like me from using HER power cage. She marks her territory!

    Good article built.

    Did I ever mention that I used to have a crush on a girl named MariAnne? Things didn't work out though - she lived on some unchartered desert isle with a captain and his skinny male lover, a scientist, a movie star, and an alcoholic millionaire couple...

    Great article btw.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Sensei - gee, I've NEVER heard THAT one before ...

    If your quads weren't so magnificent, I would snub you.

    Fortunately for you, I'm really, REALLY shallow.

    Thanks for the props.

    What do you think of hempseed oil as an EFA?

    There are a number of hemp farms in my area and it's reasonably easy to get access to hempseed oil at a reasonable price.

    I usually don't reccomend hemp seed oil to clients who are in a position where they may have to be tested for drugs at their work place. I believe you can actually test positive if you are using hemp seed oil.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    I've heard this Maki - not sure if it's true, but since hemp seed would provide the ALA form, you'd still run into the conversion problem, so there's at least one, and possible two, good reasons to stay away from it as far as I'm concerned.

    Good point.

    Do you take the same approach w/r/t bioavailability when selecting your multivitamins and other supplements?

    Pretty much, yeah, although for the most part, I just eat good food. I feel it matters for some things: I supplement with calcium in the form of citrate, and natural source vitamin E. Creatine, I just stick with tried and true monohydrate …

    I stick myself with B-12 because it's often not very well absorbed through the gut, but I get cheapy vitamin C because the more bioavailable ones aren't cost effective.
