Posted by Clint Robson on Tuesday, August 23, 2011,
Hectic! Hectic! My life has been hectic lately. Sorry I haven't posted for a while, but I have been taking strain!

Posted by Clint Robson on Monday, June 14, 2010,
This article will provide you with what I think is fascinating information of how to get more out of your fitness strength training, with less total effort.

A small amount of fat is needed, for padding the internal organs and as insulation, under the skin. Excess fat leads to diseases, such as diabetes, gout, high blood...
