Rookie Spotlight: Abby Liu

Taken as a whole, weight training is surprisingly safe compared to other physical activities. That may seem a little surprising, given that most gym rats seem to be complaining about some ailment or other.

Perhaps the most common issue, especially for men, is shoulder pain stemming from the flat barbell… Read More

Three-time Olympian Adam Nelson is the only World and Olympic Champion in the history of the shot put. 

I was helping my daughter with her math homework last week. She's a gifted student, so the only time she really makes a mistake is when she rushes her work. She knows what to do, but she does much better when she slows down. Exercise is a lot like my daughter's math homework.
