    Re: Any advice for newbie to 100m?

    What are you doing for training at the moment? How old are you? Male/Female? The more details you give to the forum, the more we can help with your training.

    Re: Maurice Greene on Squats

    Less injury? How about less weight and full squats, then progress over time. Everybody wants their way to be special. Sigh.
