It isn't narcissism of i-masterbation, just due diligence.

Plus they prevent my sweat from getting on the bar, which is good for everyone. If you position the bar in the proper place there more than likely won't be and slippage. You don't want the bar up in your palm, but instead down lower right where your fingers meet your palm....
Am I missing something? I only see the three links on the website and it seems like there should be more.

As I said earlier in the thread one of the key points to the OHS is horizontal force on the bar which helps stabilize it overhead. With dumbbells you don't have this so it is much, much more difficult since the dumbbells move in every direction and often end up "rotating" for lack of a better word.

I bought the DD KB first, when they had some super sale a while back, but would never pay full DD price. I like to play around with KB's but I don't feel they are any more special than a DB. Use a DB for snatch, C&J, swing, Turkish Get-Up, etc. and you get the same results. I guess juggling is one KB...

If you're just doing swings alone a 53lb bell isn't all that heavy, especially once you get the rhythm down. I started with a 1 pood (36lb) bell because I didn't want to start out with something too heavy for me to lift and I ended up outgrowing it pretty quickly....

College helps you with critical thinking in that most majors throw a ton of stuff at you and you have to assimilate it all and tell how it relates, or something like that. So no, college won't help...
Few tips to doing overhead squats: 1) When you do them pretend that you're pulling the bar apart which will help stabilize the bar. 2) Make sure you have "active shoulders" which is where you try to shove your shoulders into your ears. Again this helps with bar stabilization and will help you apply horizontal force to the bar. 3) If you have a squat rack try setting the bar at a height where you can get under it in a squat position with arms locked out and stand...

I'll be in MN and I want to wear it year-round. What is a 3/2 roll or something I keep hearing about? Where can I buy shoe trees cheap? Thanks in advance. 1) I'll leave this one to someone who knows more about it, but I know the general consensus is that there...
