Cucumbers are really good for you apparently, especially for the skin.

I prefer the taste of pickles, which, as it turns out, are great due to being fermented. Fermented foods are great for your natural digestive bacteria. Olives and sauerkraut are fermented too.

Pickles (the cucumber part) are actually good for your blood pressure, so the salt should not be a worry for most people. I have some pickle slices when veggies are missing from a meal to balance things. And they taste great!

More about Muscle Weakness and Tightness

Even better resource for correcting muscle weakness on the site. And the corresponding resource for correcting muscle inflexibility.

These pages are better than the previous site I mentioned because there are direct links to the muscle descriptions and the exact exercises and stretches that address the specific weaknesses and inflexibities.

This is really good stuff! How's your infraspinatus muscle?

Love Peter Gabriel

I love this guy. Seeing him in concert on my birthday in 2002 was one of the peak moments. I almost didn't mind turning 39.

Hope that special someone who was there with me takes a chance someday.

Great Resource for Exercise and Stretching has loads of great information on how muscles work, what exercises work each muscle and how to stretch them.

This site has a guide listing what muscles tend to get tight and need to be stretched and what muscles tend to get weak and need to be strengthened. I googled each tight muscle to find stretches for each and all the weak muscles to find exercises to strengthen them.
