Stretching to grow taller

0 comments
When I woke up this morning, I noticed something different; I was taller. I thought I had stopped growing since I had a growth spurt a little over a year ago and I thought that I was as tall as my genes could let me go.

Stretching releases large amounts of growth hormone which in turn will not only make a person bigger, but it will also cut body fat levels.

Stretching can also be beneficial to joints as well as the muscles by reducing muscle tension and improve circulation.

What we did in Taekwondo was very difficult and somewhat painful. First, we did splits then we slowly sat down on our butts while maintaining the split. After, we grabbed the ankles of our feet and slowly went down to the ground until our noses touched it.

Warriors Orochi 2 is awesome

0 comments
I recently got Warriors Orochi 2 when I had beaten the first Warriors Orochi. I played the game for 4 hours straight! Yes, it was that good.

The first thing I noticed about the game that was different from Warriors Orochi was that the mount was significantly faster than that of Warriors Orochi. I think the main reason for this is because in Warriors Orochi, once the ability Impulse is maxed out and the character is at level 99, the character can simply outrun the mount therefore it's rendered useless.

The game introduces new modes such as dream and vs mode. I have not gotten around to playing those modes, but from what I've heard, they seem pretty descent.

Also, there's a prequel to Orochi's story that explains how he rounded up the most powerful warriors ever known and it explains how he captured the Shu leader, Liu Bei. I haven't finished the story just yet so I don't know whether it explains other stuff like how Lu Bu got to be his guard or how Cao Cao was captured.
