I am an Electrician and live an active lifestyle, I ride between 10-20km a week but I don't work out. I had a car accident about 8-10 years ago and shattered my talus into 8 pieces...

    John Meadows Programs

    Has anyone ever done these? I am following his programs now and making really good gains. My arms are now bigger than they have ever been! I am hoping that they hit 15 inches soon. I know it's not much but I always struggled with my arms. The arm workout I just did was: EZ bar curls - 3x15 to...

    Warm Ups

    What do people do. I've always thought they were overrated. Animals seem to do fine without them. We never evolved to have to warm up and or stretch for 30 min before the lion or bear was allowed to chase us. At footy I always either avoid or half ass the warm up. Coach calls me over and...

    Funny gym incidents.
