I've been enjoying this: Female vocalists. The only track I don't like is Katie Perry's White Christmas. She tries to put a jazzy spin on the song, but it just doesn't work. Some of these aren't too bad, IMO: It's alternative rock, not as good as the female vocalists, but I like it.

If you can scale up, you can do that too, although you have to gauge it yourself like what Rob Orlando does. Otherwise the philosophy is you...

I'm stuffing down a dozen eggs a day. No problems here. Plenty of other people do that or even more, and their blood work still comes back better than anyone else's blood work.
They don't ban chalk on everything. Anything with a barbell or rings, chalk is good. But there are certain pull-ups listed in that list I posted where chalk shouldn't be used, and some where it isn't necessary. BTW, I do use chalk on my deadlifts, cleans, and snatches.

I get really sweaty hands, and my hands don't rip on pull-ups. A lot of coaches have tried experimenting with chalk.

I personally hate using gloves. They're for gardening. I tossed them a year or so ago and never looked back. I'd say get a wider bar would help. Chalk is eh. It dries out your hand (as it should), which makes it prone to ripping, which means you have to rest up to heal up. As for chin-ups vs pull-ups, don't discriminate. Do everything. False grip, mix grip, chin-up, pull-up, gymnastic kipping pull-ups, bulgarian pull-ups, ring pull-ups, bulgarian ring pull-ups, L-sit...
If you really want to try a straight razor shave, I'd suggest going at it yourself. Like I said before, not all barbers who "specialize" in it are really that great, particularly in the US. The US has certain laws which prevent anyone from getting that true straight razor shave unless they do it themselves. The Jack the Ripper sort of experience is something I've gone through on my first shave. That's what happens when someone inexperienced with straight razor shaving...
