Transformetrics Rubbish?

Maybe, maybe not. On my personal site I was checking stats and I came across someone who'd found my site by googling "Transformetrics Rubbish." Well, it depends on what you want.

Hi Lou,

I don't know. I do know that pain sometimes is referred from another area of the body that is diseased or injured. Regardless, I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Hi Jaymo,

Young athletes want to lift weights. DVR and DSR's are hard concepts for them to get and they can't put the mental effort and concentration into them. This is why I keep an Olympic bar...

Thank you for that post Upshur. It coincides with what John and I both teach and speaks of common sense and practical application. There is more to training than muscular hypertrophy.
