  1. Pretty good video! Had to watch this for one of my classes in the Exercise
    Science program at Brockport. I’d suggest if you want to get your videos
    more popularized to try and put more tags under them. You got some great
    information and you deserve some more publicity! Anyways thank you for
    this!
