KB's are certainly expensive, but so are top of the line barbells and bumper plates.

I prefer Russian vodka to the type produced in the US or even Sweden.

I could care less about kb's.

That was one of the silliest things I've ever read & I love KBs. I love how some arguments claim that KBs make your stabilizers fire more but on the same page DBs are hard to control.. umm... That would be your stabilizers also knucklehead.
