Great to have you back. I can't imagine a day in which I don't jump on my bike and go for a cruise. It's just a part of who I am. For some reason we humans always analyze everything to death. Just let it go and have a nice ride!

Are there any negatives to walking with hand weights?

7 Answers | Asked by Patricia Long on Apr 27, 2011
