You forgot the 18holes of slow motion flexing golf swings with the mastodon balls.

Ahhhh...DeVany....traded him out for Lyle McD in the RSS reader....as it has an ego limit and I was over my quotta on shirtless pictures.

That I do and I'm trying to figure out the timing.

There was as pretty solid contingent of Finnish, and Norwegian lumber jacks who did little specific DL training but posted 600-700lb DL's. Main activity was dragin felled trees. I know dave or someone else will crawl up my hoo-ha for a citation on this, I believe it was a Louie Simmons piece talking about sled dragging.

Someone who is a stay-at-home dad, wathing the kids can dig up the goods on that if they want to

The main point with that stuff was that we are wired for a high activity level and good all-around performance.

Whoa there! I don't care who said what or where...I mean Robb, come on man, how much could these mothers bench?

Robb-

I see from your blog that you might have a seminar in Fairfax. If you do, count me in! The seminar sounds great.
