Re: Chess!

I've been playing chess for a long time. I used to play at school, now I mostly play at local clubs and online, and occasionally tournaments but generally only big ones like Vegas. I like playing 2h +1h/40 in tournaments, and online I generally like blitz. In the club we play with no time control b...

Re: Swimming to get back in shape

Should I stretch on my off days or does that count as a strain on my muscles? I feel much better after stretching so Id like to do it on off days.

Re: How many of you view exercise as a chore?

Exercise has never been a chore except when I first started when I was 11, then when I saw the results I got I fell in love. Ive always loved getting stronger and feeling better the more I worked out. However after being hurt for 4 years I feel very privileged to have found an exercise I can do with...

What's your routine when studying math

Back when I was a bit more emotionally stable I would just sit myself down, pull out a timer, and read 1-3 hours a day in my text book depending on how busy I was. That served me well in Calculus A-B. However a lot of problems have hit me over the last year and I've found it tough to focus on the ma...

First time where I felt I had plenty of energy left after doing so many. I didnt want to rehurt myself though so I stopped and am looking forward to building some musc...

Final length of breast stroke my hernia started bothering me, but I think it was because of not breathing out enough rather than the actual stroke. My knee feels pretty good. I've gotten my flip turns down...

Re: Swimming to get back in shape

I think the kicks on the fly are bothering my knee. Ill hold off on that for awhile, and just do more of the other strokes. Today was an off day, did 4 freestyle, 2 of everything else.

So basically my story is Ive been hit by the injury bug hard. Had tendonitis in my knees (especially the left one) for a good 4 years, had tendonitis in both my wrists for 2 years, and have had an umbilical hernia for about a year. I went from exercising everyday and being 6'3 190 pounds, all the wa...

Re: Exercise with Pain

I'd really like to hear about this stretching routine of yours :D . I dont want to do yoga because I have a small umbilical hernia, but stretches that don't involve contorting my stomach strangely and breathing deep should be great. And I really need the stretching.

I don't have a rule and tend to read most of the books I start.

I'll sometimes put down a book/series if, the story doesn't interest me in the slightest...
