Re: Crossfit vs. Regular Weight Training

This is way off the mark Alex. Lifting weights doesn't mean you're a bodybuilder, you do know the most conditioned and fittest athletes in the world lift weights, and they're defo not bodybuilders.

Re: Bulletproof Coffee!!??!!

Re: New study linking animal protein to cancer

Meat probably does have harmful effects, just as it has beneficial effects to our health.. eat organic where possible, don't eat meat every second of the day, and don't worry about it..

Re: Online Weightlifting Coach

I agree. I feel most people will be able to learn on their own with enough research and practice (of course, nothing will ever beat real life one-on-one coaching)
