    Wouldn't be something I'd do. Rather have my own shed look like a junk yard with a lot of rusty stuff to lift. I'd prefer to have really good bars.

    158 lbs at 5 10 is really light. Nothing wrong with continuing to run and lifting some weights.

    If that's what you enjoy, do it.

    Squat
    Flat Bench Press
    Chin-Up
    Overhead Press
    Barbell Curl
    Bent...

    I'm going to watch Joe walk. If he can't change directions, without stopping, thinking about it, and then pivoting, then I'm sure he has Parkinson's.

    Whatever the rule are for the game? Someone is better built.

    I know we want to believe that Forrest Gump could shed his leg braces and get a full ride scholarship. But that was a movie.

    I'd prefer cross cables, bands, or a pec machine fly, and being able to keep tension on the chest.

    Not sure dumb bell flies do much. The tension is very short lived. It's much harder to get the...
