    Getting back on track after operation

    Hi all!!! A little more than a month ago I had a quite serious operation (with a 10% chance of success) when my colon erupted. Luckily I survived (with a colostomy which I have to keep for 3-4 months, before going back on the table to have it removed). The doctors said I have a very strong body...

    Hi all! I have finally made the big decision to apply for a second M.A. in Cinema Studies at Tisch. Age doesn't matter when you feel the urge to further your education, right? Anyways, I know the process is going to be long with all the paperwork I need to collect. That is one part of the...

    Meso 3, Week 5: How about a "failure" week add-on?

    Hi all! I am in my last week of the 5-month STS rotation which ends on August 1. I go on a two-week summer vacation on August 8, so that will give me about 3 weeks of doing nothing but lying around the beach... So, I was thinking of ways to cut down my "inactive" time to two weeks and came up...

    Weird weights showing

    Hi!!! I finally got my STS and started doing the 1RM tests. When I enter them in the WM they show properly in the 1RM list (the orange one) but when I go to print an STS Workout Card (e.g. Disc 1) the weights are all off... I already tried Reload and Empty Cache on Safari and even logged...

    Size of STS Package

    Hi all! I'm trying to schedule a pickup of the STS package from a friend of mine in NY to have it shipped to me in Greece. The site asks for the size of the packing, so I would really appreciate it if someone who has received STS can give me the dimensions of the box STS came in... Many...

    Any guys out there? 8-24

    Hey!!! Boy it's hot here! The last days of summer won't give it a rest!!! Did B&G Overall Legs premix 2day. Finally ordered barbell stands (they are a bit expensive at $290, but they have a place to stack the plates and their highest point is 5' 6" which will probably allow me to do pull ups)...
