Are Russian twists counted one per side, or one every other side?
Chad 2008-11-05
Wow, so simple, but that never would've occurred to me. Thanks Greg, that's a very useful trick.
Emily 2008-11-05
Also, that trick is frickin' awesome.

I like the headband. Keeps your hippy hair in line.

Emily - Each side is 1 rep. Mike - Yes it does, but it doesn't make it look any less silly.

I'm glad to see someone else embracing the headband! My hair is cut really short, but it annoys the living shit out of me to feel sweat accumulate/run-down the sides and front of my face!!!

Greg- Don't you think it's a bit self promotional to just show the beginning of the box jump? How 'bout the end: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWfHUEmv498

I ended up using that trick at the recent weightlifting competition. Maybe I saw someone else doing it. Or maybe I just had to adapt to the fact that the barbell was four hundred pounds.

Jason - Those are the old style Rehbands - not made any more. You can try jackalsgym.com to see if they still have any, but I think they're finally out too.
