It seems to be a well balanced approach to fitness, any opinions?

I've been studying Palestinian Martial Arts. I now know 16 ways to blow up a downtown market.



My point, if you can tell, is that both sides suck.



As far as OP, I agree with the article, as long as the uneven running surface isn't TOO uneven! :D
Lovin' it!

No not really just that this infamous comment/joke was the first thing that sprung to mind!

Having said that though I don't really think a military organisation with a history of targetting civilians (which of course applies to the other side of this conflict too) is one that I really want to taking tips from.

I had a double-take when I saw the thread title, for the same reason.

IBTL :wink:

I don't really see how, in the first instance, making a joke & then expressing a fairly widely held opinion count as trolling but anyway.

Anyway, on a related note I can heartily recommend http://www.zumbawithhamas.com
