Re: Making adjustments

You may wish to try the Hack Lifts with your heels raised slightly on a short plank -this tilts you forward a tad which can be more comfortable.

Re: Expanders

@ Harry Hayfield: While the device he is using us indeed a chest expander, it is not a BullWorker. I believe the BullWorker exercise manual, and pictures if it, are here on HOPC, in the library. Prior to being called the BullWorker, it was called the Tensolator. I have an original model of that one...

Re: Making adjustments

Hi Peter As someone who has trained at home for the last 50 years the latest restrictions haven’t troubled me too much. The home gym is scattered throughout the house and garage- for instance what is shown here is the doorway to my kitchen! I got fed up at 30 when the old gym was gradually hijacked ...

Re: Jan Delinger book

Hi Peter I recently picked up a copy of this book and makes for an interesting read. The author is certainly articulate and has obviously met many of the top names in the PC world. What was a bit wearisome was the non-stop name dropping and the style. There's a 350 word sentence on pp 23/24 -don't t...

Re: Reg park, speech and posing, Toronto 1988

I have an example of contrasting personalities -this time regarding boxers. Just over thirty years ago I was heading for the station after some business in London when coming towards me was a very large chap in a white tracksuit with an attractive blonde on his arm. “You’re George Foreman aren’t you...

Re: Adrian Heryet- Mr Britain 1961, NABBA Universe 2nd

Whoever composed these listings got Ted Gutteridge's name wrong.
I remember him well & if I'm not mistaken I think he died around 10 years ago.
Also knew Dave Stroud -a Wallasey lad at the time.

Re: SophieRAWTV

Hi Peter If it is “our” Sophie it’s well known that she is far from being a studio couch potato. This impressive extract from Wiki says a lot. ——————————————————————————————————— On 17 April 2011, Raworth completed the London Marathon, despite collapsing two miles from the finish line.[15] By 2017, ...
