Coke has started a new marketing campaign. I didn't know about it until I walked by the soda section and saw my name on a bottle. I thought I was seeing things, LOL! Needless to say, I bought it because it had my name on it. It currently is... Read more
So, I have been doing P90X3 and using Exercise bands to do the modification Pull Ups. I can't do an unassisted chin up/pull up....yet. I don't feel like the bands are doing as much for me anymore. I am still not in a place to be able to do e... Read more
