    They do agree with my printed copy. Are you looking at a "Revised & Updated" printed copy?

    I hate training in the living room. I´m too nervous thinking something is going to go wrong and cant focus on the training. I avoid it as much as I can.

    It would have helped if I was looking at S&S 2 and not Q&D. :) Problem resolved.

    I was expecting this sentence to end differently.

    I am sure it was upsetting for her, but I would have loved to to see that.

    "In climbing, there is no cheating, only lying. Few care; and the ones that do, care too much."

    A little goes a very long way too, no need to dust the whole place either (we’re not olympic gymnasts after all), but judiciously used it makes the difference between full power training vs halfhearted effort for fear of losing the bell

    and as @Geoff Chafe said there is no cheating in lifting!

    Well said....

    (Except maybe for those clowns who bolt crack climbs... but I guess even then they are lying:mad:)

    OK, I am back with a "rebuttal."

    Page 88 says not using chalk is one of the reasons some people fail. Quite different in meaning, this, than how I first read your post.
