    Any tips on posture? I have a tendency to slouch. Any of you ex-slouchers do any particular exercise(s) that helped with that? I mean, short of joining the military.

    Deadlift and to a lesser extent SLDL, plus back hyperextensions. For the DL focus on the lockout, but don't overdo it, and that should help with your posture. Well, it helped me out, at least [​IMG]

    Hi
    Naturally walking on my tip-toes since I first started...idea why I do this? I don't have any health problems but could this cause any? I think are the most important health tips to ensure the overall healthy development
    Thanks!


    Is this guy just a bot advertising an online pharmacy?

    In any event, some would argue walking tip-toes is a more natural way to walk. Although I'm not sure how much you're on your toes. I've noticed that when I'm barefoot or wearing my VFF's, the only time my heels are on the ground is like any other animal---when I'm resting. Otherwise while I'm walking or while I'm running, my heels don't touch the ground.

    Oh yeah, and powerlifting and oly lifts are when I have my heels on the ground.

    Any tips on posture? I have a tendency to slouch. Any of you ex-slouchers do any particular exercise(s) that helped with that? I mean, short of joining the military.

    I just became concious of it, and corrected it whenever I noticed I began to slouch.

    I used to have terrible posture, but I think deadlifts (and maybe squats) have forced me into good posture. My fiancee teases me about standing too straight.

    I'll be trying Metabolic Drive for the first time; just won a free bottle. At $35/container, I can't see it becoming my go-to protein, but I'm looking forward to finally trying it.

    Thanks. I do those already, but maybe I should step it up.

    OMFG I HATE THE FUCKING GYM...

    There's these fucking guys that leave their used plates and dumbbells everywhere, fucking grunting like they are getting ass-raped in prison at the end of every set, standing in front of the mirror eye-fucking themselves for at least 5 minutes between sets. There's the one huge guy who is basically all upper body with no ass and chicken legs and his bitches who follow him around the gym.

    THEN there's this one guy, normally he's ok, but today he took off his fucking shirt and pants IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GYM and had his gf take pics of him flexing wearing nothing but some sport underwear.

    I FUCKING HATE PEOPLE AT THE GYM.

    I took the last 6 or so weeks off from sparring due to a possibly fractured nose (decent amount of blood, racoon eyes, sore but still straight) and a slightly off schedule but I finally stepped into the ring again tonight. I've been focusing hardcore with cardio in my off time and it paid off. I did 7 rounds with the last 3 being with a guy who outweighs me by at least 50 pounds and recently fought at the national Golden Gloves tournament. And damn, I felt good. No fatigue at all until the very end.

    I haven't done this is a long while. But jesus it sucks. Aside from torture, this is the best way to build mental toughness, given you don't fail[​IMG]

    Health is the wealth. Therefore, it is require to keep maintain the health. I prefer exercise and diet food to maintain my physics regularly. Another important thing is that to control on the brain. For that I also do exercise as Yoga for the meditation.
