    Weight Plates?

    Where is the best place to buy plastic weight plates? I love the few that I got when I purchased Les Mills Pump and am looking for the same kind. It also looks similar to the ones used on Cathe Live videos.

    This 6'2" gal has a pitiful tuck jump as well! I've never been able to get my knees high for fear of not getting my feet down in time. We all struggle with something, right?

    Achilles tendinopathy - help!

    Get you some Dixie cups and fill 3/4 of the way with water and freeze. You'll just massage that over your Achilles and peel the cup as needed.

    Achilles tendinopathy - help!

    Cardio leg blast=ankle sprain

    Yep. And if you haven't started taking NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), Ibuprofen is a wonderful stacking drug. It's best to take it every 6-8 hours for a few days for best results.

    Best Flat Iron

    I love my GHD personally. I've had it for 5 years and it's still as good as day 1. I've owned 2 CHIs and they both broke after about a year. Folica has really good prices and sales from time to time.

    Patella Tendonitis?
