    lmao , i plan on having arthritis by the time i hit 30 >< the animal flex helps a ton though i take it every night before bed when i plan on lifting heavy the next morning and i dont really have joint paints . the cracking is retarted tho so i do a really light set of like 20 reps on squats than stretch for 10 mintues / foam roll for another 10 . rumble roller is the ****!!!

    We can't drive sports cars. We can't buy clothes off the rack (with the exception of jeans from The Buckle), I have to order shoes online since retailers don't have 16s at most stores, I had to special-order my scrubs since the "tall size" was only available as special order... and thats just for starters.

    The only positives I've sound so for about being tall is you are the first to know if its raining and wearing a shirt that says "You Must Be ThiS Tall To Ride This Ride <------->" actually has some merit for weeding the shorties out.

    Thanks for the reply. Before this I didn't even consider the passat. But I'll go try one soon at the dealership. Do you know if it's more roomy than the golf? Also what year is yours? Sorry for all the questions it's just Iv'e wasted so many hours at the dealerships trying to find a car haha.

    I really feel horrible for you, it must be awful. It's just too bad you weren't born '5 1" or something.

    I read somwhere that front squats are batter on the joins like 25% on knees or something. Plus front squats feel more natural too me but to each there own
