In an old post I have mentioned that crunches are bad for your spine and may lead to spine damage. After further reading and review of studies supporting this statement I have thrown this conclusion out the window. The studies used to support this claim of crunches being bad for you were done using isolated animal spines. Meaning the spines where removed from the animals bodies and manipulated by hand. Meaning that the findings in these studies I believe have little implication on the human spine in regards to crunching. I do believe that in some cases especially in populations having prior back injuries crunching can be detrimental, but for normal population crunches are a perfectly fine way to exercise the abdominals, but always remember there is always a proper way and

To all you new dads out their it might be wise to consult a physician following child birth to discuss your hormone levels. Low testosterone can also hinder muscular hypertrophy and strength increases.
 
We are working on improving our distance training programs by adding a video library to the site. The first installments of videos will be up very soon be looking for them prior to the end of this week.

Today's blog is very off-topic from this website, but it is appropriate for today. Today marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the greatest lost of American life in one day sense the Civil War Battle of Antietam. My message today is very short. We must honor those that were lost that day, by never forgetting. Give thanks today to all those who answered the call of duty that day. Remember and pray for those that have been left behind by loved ones gone. And please never forget what makes this great country unique. It was demonstrated ten years ago on this very day.

Please join me in fighting this prediction.
