    I'm not disagreeing with the statistics. I'm pointing out that "let Darwin sort it out" is not really an acceptable response.

    About half the people that are minimizing the pandemic. The other half are saying it doesn't matter whether the deaths are old or young, they're still inconsequential as long as it's not themselves.

    B-b-but, don't we keep hearing that the victims are just old sick people on their last legs anyway, and not anyone that will be missed?

    Thanks! My fantasy is to get to 3 plates on the squats, but I'm not sure this particular program is designed to take me there yet. Eventually, maybe. It won't be real soon!

    Well, legends do a lot more than that! I wasn't sure I was ready for it, and there actually was a bit of trepidation at the beginning. But I was happy with 6 reps. It'll be interesting to see...

    Looking at the specs, it's one heavy-duty bar! I think you'll like the bare steel, especially in your rather dry climate. I've been using my Castro Bar since March, and it's developed no hint of a...

    A lot of people think the decision of whether or not to wear a mask is a political statement. It's not a political statement, it's an IQ test.

    If you're going to take a dump while walking on clouds you damn well better warn the people on the ground first!

    Oh yeah, at least 20 years ago. I guess they've improved since then?

    I started baking my own bread way back in the 1970's while I was still in the Navy, mostly out of curiosity. Turned out I...

    When I had a bread maker, I found that it really didn't save that much work as compared to mixing the dough by hand and putting it in the bread pan. OK, I was less likely to make disastrous...

    When I had elbow tendonitis a while back I found two things that helped:

    1. Shifting to neutral grip pullups
    2. Changing the bar grip on my squat.

    I hadn't realized how much spacing width...

    Now's a good time to post my introductory "Average to Savage" workout. It's definitely a deload, things should get heavier over time, as it's a form of undulating periodization. The exercise...

    One thing we have now that didn't exist in the Middle Ages is anti-biotics.

    Everybody is different, but without knowing your program it's tough to give any advice. It's possible that you are doing too much volume per session, thus the extra fatigue. It's possible that you...
