Bumper plates versus metal plates - do they make your lifts easier
Stacy went and talked with an ortho person and found out that she has a dislocated, twisted tailbone
There is only one way to fix that, other than surgery, and that is to have someone manually turn her tailbone the same way you would pop-in a dislocated shoulder...but in a very different region of the body
She is planning to have her tailbone popped back into place, but has been mentally preparing for the fix
Apparently once it is back in place, everything feels back to normal in about five minutes

Stacy has only used Reebok knee sleeves to date, she has never tried knee wraps or straps, and she has only used them when she feels like she is needing some support or to feel a little sturdier
Vivian doesn't use any knee straps or wraps
