Looks like you need to expand the back out more and make the armpit area larger. Not exactly sure what you did considering that I am a body barrel and straps person but it is always important to make ...

People bash Batman but for a regular guy he is pretty outstanding. He has the strength of an Olympic lifter and if I remember correctly knows over 150 different styles of martial arts. This guy works ...

Well, I found a good hunk of steel. While walking around a railroad I found a 1/2 inch 15 lb piece of steel. It is pretty rusty and needs to be sanded but I think it should work well for flattening li ...

It's like this for anything. Why would someone buy quality stuff that is expensive when they can get it cheap. Needless to say, people buying this stuff aren't going to use it for actual combat so why ...
