Dr Charles Van Der HorstVia Running Down a Dream : Remember the in-flight exercises we mentioned a while back?

Brilliant.

Finally, a Wider Bar.Over the past few months I've managed to obtain a combination of standard and olympic weight plates and bars. (The standard stuff came with the bench). Gradually I'm using the standard stuff for less and less, primarily to keep the amount of plate-changing to a minimum.
