Ive had the pleasure of going to the odd Russian Wedding and can't say the savoury food was memorable however once they got to the cakes and in particular the Torte's, that was another thing. Other than the wedding, I have on a few occassions had a Russian Torte referred to as a 'Napoleon'. It a custard cake with flaky pastry and looks like the below: Disclaimer : I have no doubt this post will provoke the other 'non russians' states around Russia to claim...
Hopefully this post will inch me a little closer to the magic number
If you have a hard time doing pullups either use a chair for assitance (keeping one foot on it), or just grease the groove like I did. Works very well. ....pfffft Is he exercising the the foot or developing his arms, shoulders and form? Can you provide a picture of this technique ? Can t see how you can consistently have a 'measured' control of resistance using your foot. Also open to damaging any one of his muscles in his leg if he loses control of his weight...
If you want to get upper body strength and become good at Pull-Ups/Chin-ups go to your Gym and use one that has assistance. If you try straight out without assistance you will i) Fatigue very quickly ii) Possibly injur yourself iii) Loose interest and give up I can do pull ups and dips not a problem however I started out with one of the machines that had a bar under your feat that pushed me up.

So whats wrong with Bally shoes?

Mona's Fartlek - 2 x 90 secs / 4 x 60 secs / 4 x 30 secs / 4 x 15 . Implies you do 90 jog and then 90 hard, then 90 jog then 90 hard, then 60 jog 60 hard, 60 jog 60 hard......... Do this set twice and then come back to this message board and tell us how you feel. . Also, make sure the course you plan to run the fartlek has a few rises and dips so its a little more interesting.
I am only 100 pages into the book as I am reading a little slower and stopping to reflect a bit more than I would typically. I do want to be 'over cautious' in terms of what I will get out of this book and do not wish to leap to the conclusion 'that this book' has changed my life. However, I must say that having been written from a clinical researech perspective, I am finding the arguments in this book do have more substance than most of the other 'self help' cr@p...
I don't know what the style is called however I have seen that a number of shoes brands have atleast one style of shoe in their range where the leather looks like its super glossy and made of synthetic. Wanted to know where and in what context do you wear such shoes without looking like a pimp? I have provided an example below Also what do they do to get the shoes that glossy? A side question I have and ignore my ignorance, are the soles on Bally shoes...
Was wondering if anyone has read Martin Seligman's book "Learned Optimism" and what you thought about it? Have any of his ideas have changed you and/or stuck with you particularly if you previously had previously considered yourself a pessimist.
