  1. Thanx for dictionary.
    btw, will read your blog periodically.

    Would it ok if i'll comment in russian?

  2. No problem at all. You can leave comments on any language. Thank You!

  3. ok, then lets train a little my poor english)
    i've ordered NSD 350hz metal powerball 2009 from ebay. May you share your thoughts about this type of powerball? Is it best choice for the moment?

    I have to say, that my primary goal is to load my musceles and secondary to relax my hands. Thats why i've ordered heavy PB.

  4. bloodfeed, Heavy PB is good, much more reliable than plastic ones. It is heavy! But I would say that to grow your muscles you must combine PB exercises with some other kinds (like push ups, weight lifting, arm expanders). The combination will make you progress in all directions. The main goal of PB exercise is to learn how to control PB under heavy pressure, not just only get a heavy pressure, so you've always to be concentrated on technique first, then on the strength. Of course with heavier PB it is harder.
