    For Mark: this is a common symptom for pregnant women. In Brooklyn, I'm sure there are masseuses or PTs who have experience treating this in pregnancy. May be worth a few calls.

    Joining a gym, start a good newbie strength routine like stripped 5x5, learn the technique for the lifts and eat a lot will always give the best results for non trained guys looking to add mass. If you can't do that and insist on working out at home, you can actually perform strength based home workout. Push ups with weights on your back, chinups / pullups, dips between chairs and pistol squats holding on to a chair. That should work your whole body while being as basic as it gets. Go as heavy as you can with perfect form for 5 to 10 reps per set, 3 sets per excercise. Bodyweight high rep excercises won't do anything for you at your level in the long run. Also, clean up your diet and eat enough to grow (but that's another story).

    It would be great if GNC sold sports literature and actual equipment like the theracane, then maybe I could put my gift certificate to good use.

    And word, makes a lot of sense. I think if this problem persists i'll try to seek out a good sports chiro.


    My cousin lives in Brooklyn...and is pregnant, I shall talk to her.

    Stopped by a close friend's house this evening to see his new home gym. It was amazing. Larger than most high-end hotel gyms and better far better equipped. It even has a very nice sauna and shower. I was in awe, not to mention very jelly.

    Ran half a mile in the altra's on the treadmill. Felt good the way forefoot-striking makes me feel good, though I should probably wait until tomorrow to make sure that my calves/feet aren't killing me.

    You must be new here. 6" is borderline manlet. Under 5'10", consider suicide.

    Currently 28 BMI at 6'1", still have ab definition. Shooting for 30 BMI "lean-ish" come spring time next year; I'm calling it "30 by 30"..... reaching non-fatty 230lbs by the time I turn 30 years old in April.

    Interestingly, apparently 28 BMI precludes one from participating as a "healthy adult" volunteer in NIH clinical studies-- I was rejected for being "overweight." Would've been nice to get $650 for two 3 hour visits.
