    Latest Colonoscopy Guidelines

    Is Primary Care Doctor supposed to bring this up with you? Or do you need to bring it up? I have a good Primary Doctor but he never brings it up. He asks me whether I've got flu shots, etc, but nothing about Colonoscopy. :unsure: The American Cancer Society has published new guidelines on...

    How to break habit of changing grips on volleys instead of staying with Continental grip?

    Ideally, you want the same grip on backhand and forehand volleys, if you want to advance to higher levels of play. But it is hard to break the habit.

    Physics Question -- Throwing A Tennis Ball

    Lets assume distance from baseline to baseline is 80 feet. And there is a 10 foot back fence 20 feet behind the baseline. A six foot tall man standing at the baseline throws a tennis ball that lands at bottom of the fence. Total distance of throw = 100 feet. If his goal is to clear the 10...

    Julian Edelman appreciation thread.

    I have always rooted against NE but must finally acknowledge his greatness. Never seen a guy dominate as much as him. Especially given his small size. Just totally uncoverable as a slot receiver. Believe he played at San Mateo college and then Kent State. As a QB! And he returns kicks too...

    Printer cartridge costs more than the printer.

    I bought the Cannon MG 3620 inkjet printer for $39. it comes with black and color cartridge. Now I have run out of ink. The black cartridge alone costs $50. Better to just buy a new printer with black and color cartridges for $39. :unsure:

    Serena foot faulting on match point.

    How many millions of times has Serena practiced her serve? Yet she shockingly foot faults on match point. Nullifies a game-winning ace. :( https://deadspin.com/video/3627757?utm_medium=sharefromsite&utm_source=Deadspin&jwsource=cl

    Worst traffic in the country?

    This has to be one of the worst commutes in the country. 680 North from Milpitas/San Jose towards Pleasanton. 1 hour 20 minutes to travel 10 miles. That is the normal rush hour commute. There is absolutely no mass transit option. I think I can walk faster. :(

    Incorporating J-Toss Into The Service Motion.

    There are three tossing arm techniques: 1. Tossing arm roughly parallel to baseline (Federer, Karolovic, Sampras). This motion promotes great shoulder coil. Tough to toss inside the court. 2. Tossing arm roughly diagonal to baseline (Serena, Raonic). Promotes good shoulder coil. Easier to...

    Jeff Salzenstein: How to serve up the T

    Interesting notes: Even though he is a pro, Jeff still misses 6 feet to the left. (Now I don't feel so bad). Bit puzzling that he's serving pretty much full speed. Would have thought he would slow it down since he was missing. Jeff never mentions hitting the left/right side of the ball to go...

    Standing Quad Stretch. Can't quite get my heel to butt.

    Accidentally posted to Tips. Please delete or move to Health/Fitness. I am able to grab my ankle and I don't feel any pain but can't get my heel to butt. Was told by Doctor that I have tight hamstrings. Guess tight hamstrings is why I cannot go all the way? Just keep doing this stretch...

    Fitness watch not tracking heart rate accurately.

    Fitbit Versa. $199 Heart rate reading was pretty accurate when I went jogging. 80 to 130 bpm. It was 130 bpm at the bottom of the hill. As I climbed I know for sure I was well over 140 but the reading was still 130. This was supposed to be one of the better watches. Are other fitness...

    Coach Kyril's drop feed forehand progression: What is the purpose of tucked in elbow?

    This is Coach Kyril's forehand drill progression. He starts with the elbow tucked in, then progresses to eventually letting the elbow go. But I am not really clear on why the tucked elbow helps. He talks about spin and snap. Keep the elbow tucked in tight and we're going to hit topspin...

    Not placing the volleys. Just getting it back.

    Even on the medium pace volleys, I often just get it back and don't think about placement. The good players seem to be be a split second quicker mentally and think about where they're gonna place the volley and then place right in the opening. Need to figure out a way to be mentally quicker.
