  1. Oh absolutely. It's just surprising to me that someone would put cast iron pots and pans into storage. There is something magical about cooking food in well seasoned cast iron. If maintained, it can be the last set of pots and pans you ever own.
  2. I hope that's because they were still using their 40 year old cast iron pots and pans!
  3. Ankle mobility is not your problem. You are crouching, not squatting. I would get rid of the bar for now, and practice squatting with body weight only over a box until you learn the proper movement pattern. You need to think about sitting back onto a chair. You will probably fall backwards a bit while learning the squat, hence the box. Browse other form check videos to see what others are doing, and compare it to what you are doing.
  4. Google "Bulgarian Split Squats". Your front knee doesn't need to go as far forward and should keep the heel on the ground. Can do with a barbell or dumbbells, but start with a lighter weight. Perhaps it was just me but I could never find a comfortable position with the back foot when I was wearing shoes, so I prefer to do the exercise in sock feet.
  5. If you need to jump-start your food stockpiles, costco has got you covered: http://www.costco.com/9687-Total-Servings-1-Person-1-Year-Food-Storage.product.100003177.html
  6. Yup. My wife can't even watch me work out at the gym anymore because, you know, public decency and all...
  7. In Ontario (Canada) our controlled access highways have interchanges which are assigned an "exit number" that is approximately the number of kilometers from a fixed point to that exit. Knowing the number of the exit you want to take and the the number of the exit you just passed, you can calculate remaining distance. Divide that by your speed and you know how much longer you will be on the highway.
  8. It happened to me on new year's day, I think I was trying to progress too quickly with my bent over rows. Still bothers me to a degree, but it's getting better.
  9. Or, try combining the two to make a taco omelet! Saute some onions and peppers for additional flavour.
  10. Homer: Not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol must be working like a charm. Lisa: That’s specious reasoning, Dad. Homer: Thank you, dear. Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away. Homer: Oh, how does it work? Lisa: It doesn’t work. Homer: Uh-huh. Lisa: It’s just a stupid rock. Homer: Uh-huh. Lisa: But I don’t see any tigers around, do you? [Homer thinks of this, then pulls out some money] Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock. [Lisa refuses at first, then takes the exchange]
  11. The mention of PETA reminds me of an amusing (to me at least) story. A couple of years ago, I just happened to walk into a big box hardware store where PETA had set up a protest. There was two girls, one of them was in a cage, and their message was something along the lines of how dreadful the living conditions are for animals and how lucky they were compared to animals because they could get out of the cage whenever they wanted. What's a guy to do? I continued my shopping, but along the way I picked up a cheap padlock and added it to their cage on my way out. For the animals of course.
  12. Agree! I was alternating deadlift sets with a woman in the gym last night who was lifting more than I was. Jealous? Nope, I wanted to give her a high-five. Need moar lady lifters!
  13. I think I will try the avacado and zucchini suggestions at some point next week. I've been looking for greener suggestions to add to my morning smoothies. I usually do: 1c whole milk 1 scoop protein power (currently chocolate) 1 egg (sometimes) 1 banana 1-2 additional fruit (current options being cherries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, pineapple, mango, kiwi, coconut) I am always looking for things to add to the "additional" line, and good combinations of things
