    2x a week with spbr plus his running focus is great, no reason why that won't work for a long time unless he does marathon distances

    I'm an uninsured American, and when I got my blood work done for test and thyroid last year, it was $100 including lab fee. I don't know if this is the case in other states, but there was special pricing available where I went for those without insurance. Of course, they sort of biffed it and mixed up the blood testing. A week later, I got the results that showed my thyroid was a bit out of a whack, but my prostate was A-OK.

    I'm totally going to have a double chin at 190lbs.. awesome!


    Uninsured sucks. I'm an independent contractor so no insurance here. My dad died of prostate cancer at a young age and his father also died of prostate cancer, shit sucks... glad to here yours was ok lol

    shits dark but my good friend also had to watch someone he love die of prostate cancer. he had a scare, he's 38 and thought he had prostate cancer.. crazy story was that he is uninsured and broke as fuck, his brother is a life gaurd and saved this guys life at the beach while off duty. turned out the guy was one of the best gastro dudes in town and he checked out my friend free of charge as thanks. friend said he would have blown his brains out if he was diagnosed and I have to agree with him there..

    Inner quad getting more depth to it and the outer quad seems to flare out more. Am pleased with the results. Yes I took progress pics in front of my friend.

    Have you checked out the Reebok Crossfit Oly? We have them in Manila, so you should have them in Singapore.

    Decided to grind out an extra set of deads tonight and midway through the third rep, felt that awful "pop" in the lower back. Needless to say, I set the weight right back down and scooted off to a secluded area where I could mentally scold myself. Felt like good form on all the other sets, but I'm stupidly hovered over the bar on that last rep.

    Back is aching, but I'm able to walk and all of that, so hopefully this is only a brief thing. Some of you may remember I had a similar injury almost two years ago going real heavy on deads. Hoping rest, ice, and work with the Thera cane and lacrosse ball in the coming days will heal me up.
