by Matt Kroc – 4/26/2011 I'm known for being able to suffer major injuries and bounce back from them completely healed – and in record time. As I write this, I'm nine weeks post surgery from a distal triceps tendon repair.
Here is the tried-and-true injury rehab method for muscle-belly injuries we got from Starr and that has worked for years better than any other method I’ve ever used. It also works well on orthopeadic injuries in general, and should be tried before anything more elaborate is used. Wait 3-4 days until the pain starts to “blur”,which indicates that the immediate process of healing has stopped the bleeding and has started to repair the tissue. Then use an exercise that directly works the injury, i.e. that makes it hurt, in this case the squat.
According to the creator of StrongLifts you should switch to 3x5 after sometime. Well, at this point you are actually doing Starting Strength. Why not start with 3x5 from the very beginning? To train form? Well, training form with an empty bar is not needed after you learn how to do the basic lifts: squat, bench press, deadlift, press and since you are going to switch to 3x5 StrongLifts might just be called 5x5 prior to Starting Strength. 2) Mehdi, the creator of StrongLifts, is a professional coach but Mark Rippetoe is far more proven than him.

Melinda Manore reviewed the evidence surrounding hundreds of weight loss supplements, a $2.4 billion industry in the United States, and said no research evidence exists that any single product results in significant weight loss - and many have detrimental health benefits.
In my line of work, I get to see a lot of pitching instructors and hitting coaches. Some have the unbelievable ability to really get through to kids and make them great. On the other hand, there are some that flat-out suck. As I've seen these two ends of the spectrum, I've come to realize that the best guy to teach you a curveball is rarely the one who has had a dirty 12-to-6 breaking ball since he was in seventh grade. Rather, the guy that can teach you the most is the one who struggled with his curveball for years and tried everything to even turn it into a mediocre pitch. Likewise, the best hitting coach hasn't batted .400 for a month, let alone a season.
Boss who does weight training is a nicer boss In these times of economic recession, managers in companies and organisations are under pressure. And who suffers most from this? The people who do the real work. They are likely to get a bucket of s*@t over them every time the manager is faced with a problem. Unless the manager in question trains or does yoga, researchers at Northern Illinois University discovered.

Lead author Dr Qibin Qi, a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, and colleagues, examined data on 7,740 women and 4,564 men taking part in two prospective studies: the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study.
