Tendon enhancement.....fascinating....it's like gattica...except real, yet equally weird.

Gattaca. The name is composed of the four letters used to label the nucleotide bases in DNA: G, A, T & C.

Of course. My bad.

The easy way to become the best is to advertise, advertise and advertise what you have done (with a little enhancement), but more importantly, let everyone know what you are about to do, or are working on. People will be way impressed when you tell them you have been on anything above grade 30. Success is entirely optional.

Your a very well built man Simon.

I was surprised by your skill when I met ya. I would have picked u as more of a loafer. Anyway, your weight compared to Andrew is all in your shoulders/neck, thru the core, and upper legs. I've tried to hip and shoulder ya and u are one solid unit. My guess is Andrews body is more gym built and yours is more au naturale. U guys always make 10kgs dissapear.

Do you mean climbing gym or weights gym? If the latter, I've never really set foot in one. If the former, not for many months now.

It's great when Chockstone can provide a breakdown of physical characteristics related to footy. Anyway Dan, I am looking forward to you making an appearance for the Nati Rams next season (Dan apparently showed some promise in his younger years and being 6ft8in would have definitely attracted the interest of talent scouts).

I will definitely be writing a report for Chockstone when Dan debuts in the blue and gold.

I stand corrected. Apologies. I would have picked u as having once been a skinny bugger.

Farm boy by chance then? :-)

Walk and/or jog to and from Natimuk to Arapiles at least 3 times a week. Once to Horsham.

Only eat when your hungry. Don't snack ever, unless it is a meal. Never over eat. Understand hunger, and be resourceful with your body.

Failing that, become a controlled IV user and the above becomes the norm.

That all makes sense. What about beer? How much of that can I have? (providing I am running the k's too).

Beer is fine if u keep up the k's and sweat it out. The sugar is good too. Personally I'm never shy of a traveller on the journey.
