My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: Functional strength
Miguel, there is a difference between exercise and training. Yes, I am aware of that, as are a great many of the people posting here. My impression is that a lot of the people here have, like I ...

Re: Functional strength
