    The world's worst parents

    How can you be a huge fan of maddox and find this video so terrible? Maddox's humour is far more extreme than this. And as a side note man he certainly isn't writing many articles these days.

    How do you make veins appear on your calves? :D

    Yeh thats dye in the left leg. Its not too good if your getting to a satge like that but unfortunately there is not a lot you can do about it. Try to avoid being on your feet all day....sit whenever you can.

    How do you make veins appear on your calves? :D

    Yeh i know what you mean. It does look pretty cool. There are a few contributing factors. You need to have extremely low body fat. You also need to have muscle mass. But the most significant factor is your genetics and how your cardiovascular system is structured. Some peoples veins and...

    The world's worst parents

    Agreed. I find it suprising that so many of you find this video so bad. There is a lot of parents who do far worse things to their children than not giving them a luxury good. The kid will probably laugh about this later in life.

    Sock recommendations.

    You can get thorlos in black. Thorlo's "hiking" socks are black and still provide great cushioning even for tennis.

    Recommend string for POG/Oversize

    Prince original synthetic gut 16. Don't underestimate this string just due to its cheap price.

    Did the ball cross the net?

    From my memory you and your racquet have to stay on your side. If your racquet goes over the net the point goes to your opponent even if you hit the ball on your side. But my memory is a little hazy on the subject. Go to the ITF website, download the rule book and find out.

    Honestly, how do those skinny guys produce so much power?

    Another thing is that you can be strong without being 'big'. Strength has a lot to do with how your muscles are activated (neuromuscular system) rather than the size of those muscles. If muscles become too big then the power you can generate decreases. Thats why skinny guys can hit with...

    mains vs crosses

    I wasn't actually referring to overall string life. I was soley looking at the crosses, in that if their tension is significantly higher than that of the mains then the chances of the crosses breaking increase.

    Is the k90 really going to be discontinued soon?

    On a side note all of these serve speeds are unofficial. The truth of these speeds are far from being valid.

    Fat Burning Drinks?

    Agreed, they aren't a good solution. Just make sure you energy intake is less than your energy expenditure and you'll lose weight. Don't make the negative energy balance too large otherwise you'll feel like crap.

    mains vs crosses

    Ive never really found that the "sawing" effect of strings play a significant role in string breaking. Since the crosses are usually significantly shorter than the mains, by increasing their tension above that of the mains then you are decreasing their ability to deform under an applied force...
