      My doctor seems to think I have IBS and has referred me to a specialist. That appointment isn't until mid September, but what started as some intermittent bouts of more frequent urges, has turned...

      In my opinion fitness is contextual and has little to do with someone's body comp, so fit is not the word I would use to describe him based on his weight. I would say given his recent 5k time he has...

      What would you say your goals are moving forward? Obviously people have different "ideals" for their body type, but imo 5'9 sub 160 is a little too skinny.

      Don't underestimate the power of a...

      That pull ain't half bad, but, you're kind of skipping some steps. You gotta get comfortable with the positions before you really start doing weighted snatches. You just don't have any stability over...
