Yesterday, a guy e-mailed me to say that he’d had great luck with the program … it revolutionized his life. Lowered his cholesterol, he feels wonderful … on and on. Nice stuff. And, oh yeah, he said … he had given himself two hernias. Two hernias!
What the hell was that all about? It was NOT the weight program, he said. Not lifting them, anyway. It was putting them on the machine before he lifted them. You know those 45-pound rings? He was pitching those around like a kid and wrecked himself before he sat down to leg-press ’em. I sympathize big time … those suckers are unwieldy. Maybe a little dangerous. So watch it.
