1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    If you can do it properly without the block it'll get more of a stretch, but might be hard for you dudes with a lot of leg mass. Figure four is good too:

    Make sure you get full flexion in your foot (not like this chick is doing)

    So i found a huge lump on my back right around where this hurts. Might not be what I thought it was. Gonna have a hot steamy date with a lacrosse ball tonight and hope it's just a knot.

    Widening my squat stance has given me the worst DOMS in a long time. Inside of my thighs and hip flexors are extremely sore and my hips and piriformis are both numb and hurt at the same time two days after the session.

    Fuji and Charly, you experienced this too when you made the switch to a wider stance, right?

    I've also started using the adductors/abductors machine which def contributes to the DOMS. Anyone else use it regularly?

    Non fitness question for my rhet brahs. Because of the courses I chose this year I'm doing the same course as someone studying actuarial science so I could switch to that in my 3rd year. Also on that program if you do well enough you're exempt from having to take your real actuary exams. Would actuarial science be a better degree then statistics with finance for someone looking to go into finance, if not do actuaries make lots of money?


    That's pretty normal conceptionist, inside of my thighs, glutes and hamstrings is where I feel my squat.

    Pretty normal.



    I regret not going switching to actuarial science from risk/insurance/finance because it seems like an easy field to be in if you are mathematically inclined. Also, job market is nice and it pays very well. A couple of my friends from college were in actuarial science, 4 years out of college and they've got houses, 911's and living very comfortably.
