Chin-ups: The King Of Upper Body Exercises "Most bodybuilders would be jealous of the back development of top-level gymnasts and kayakers. And their conditioning programs center on – you guessed it – chin-ups.

This is because, unlike the dweeb pulldown machine, chin-ups are a true test of real-world strength."—Charles Poliquin–
Who Ever Said Lifting Heavy Things Ain't Cardio "All I'm saying is that I feel it's waaaaaaay over-emphasized, and that people have no idea what the term "cardio" really means - as if all that "BRISK" incline wallking you see many people do on the treadmill six times per week while they watch The Price is Right (or Grey's Anatomy, depending on the time of day) is somehow superior to placing a barbell on their back and squatting it."—Tony Gentilcore—

"Some of you, however, may think you have no issues here. You have eaten grains, legumes, and dairy your whole life and are "fine." Well, maybe. But I suspect that is not the case.

Because if you are consuming these foods, I'll wager you have gut irritation and other systemic inflammation issues."
