    Leg press - rib pop.

    Last week I was on the leg press on the 4th set getting full ROM at the bottom of the eccentric I felt and heard a huge pop in left ribs right down the bottom end and now my ribs are pretty sore. Doc said it would most likely be muscular. The bloody noise was insane and the pop I felt internally...

    How Much Training Until You Get Sore

    I see people around over the years saying that you have to get sore to get bigger. Which I somewhat dis-agree with as I've gain a fair amount of muscle with rarely getting sore.

    Animal Whey Review

    This product REALLY surprised me! I've bought Gold Standard, Iso-100, supertein , and Syntha-6 in the past, but I began to have sensitive stomach towards those products somehow. I decided to try something new and so far I haven't had one bad experience drinking this protein! It mixes...

    Weird Feeling In Arm

    I'm not sure where to put this sorry but when I use a bar to do squats my left arm starts to get tingly and sore probably about 2 sets in. I was wondering is that normal and why it happens?
