2. Difficult to remember or recall. More »


Based on this definition I would have to say no.


Take some heavy duty offshore fishing tackle, and bait with a large ball of Wisconsin Chedder. Cast said bait into the State boundry's, and hang the hell on! Before you know it your going to be in for a fight!

They are not good eating but they are sure fun to catch and release.

From last years expedition.

Im pretty late to this thread, but a great warm up that i use on shoulder and chest days is the YTWL's. It takes about two minutes and it has really helped me. I blew my right RC pretty bad a couple of years back, but since i have been doing this worm up i have had little to no issues with the shouldeers at all.


hope this helps

Carl.

Definitely going to try these out next time around. Looks like they get the battery acid flowing in the shoulders. Thanks Carl.
