January 14, 2010 By SLAM Staff Barkley gives his typically unique and hilarious take on the situation: “First of all, I don’t care to be honest with you. It’s funny how the public wants to think that they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I grew up on welfare in Alabama. If somebody told me that they could stick something in my ass to get me making 100 or 200 million dollars, I’m gonna be the first in line. First of all, this stuff wasn’t illegal at the time. They weren’t even testing for it supposedly. If I could take a needle and start making 15 or 20 million dollars a year, of course I would do it. It bothers me when everybody wants to act like they’re so sanctimonious and so martyr. If some of these people are out there at the job and they know like I can get an injection, they’re not testing for it, it’s not illegal and I can make 10 or 20 million dollars a year or 2 to 300 million dollars of course they would do it!”
I keep repeating/harping on this but seriously how do you justify net production dropping with ongoing economic wealth gains. There's got to be some other wealth producing source that isn't in the current formula and perhaps isn't being talked about because to do so might result in gov't stepping in to oversee or restrict it. The economic exchange is increasingly in stock market points rather than goods and services traded/provided/consumed. (Yeah, I know that 'financial services' is a major contributor to the GDP, but the stock market itself - share prices - is not. IMO, share prices should be treated like currency which would help determine inflation/deflation risks for exchanges. Index funds account for about 20% of all investments, so there's quite a bit of pressure to ensure that major stock exchanges continue upward ... regardless of the performance of whatever outfit issued those stocks.)
Maximum strength EMS is applied to the quads, hamstrings, glutes, and the erector spinae. These muscle groups play the main role in power development around the hip joint, where, at maximum speed, the power output is seven times higher than around any other joint. The abs play a major role also, and they can be treated as well, but their rotational movement and primary support, rather than power role, favor traditional high rep training. More on this later. The soles of the feet can even be treated in cases of insufficient foot strength.
