    Just writing to let you know on your CommandoCardio site that the Amazon is in South America, not Africa. I am writing here because there is no way to contact you from the other site.

    Thanks Nora, I appreciate you checking thing out for me. The name amazons is their title, not the location they are from. The Amazon women have been reported to be from anywhere including Africa, Turkey and north of the black sea from what I have studied about them and the writings of them from the greeks.

    Hi Albert, Thanks for your analysis on Curves routine. I was wondering if the Smart feature addresses your concerns and resolves the issues of overuse injuries and progressive overload?
