    Yeap..

    ..that's good, isn't it??..I'm sure other players are doing the same..:cool:

    About those wondering abt Taufik's peak 4-5 yrs ago, maybe these clips will bring back memories:

    Maybe we'll hear the same chorus of TH supporters, die-hard fanz and sympathizers propping him up, say 4-5 more yrs from now, if he is still playing professionally..;)

    *..Tommy Susanto, yeah, i'm just tellin' it like it is, just tellin' it like it is..:p;)

    Results, folks, just want to see results.:cool:

    Indeed, he is just 'one ball of muscle' :D
    In fact, Lee Chong Wei weighs less than Wong Pei Tty!

    Another player in the same 'all-muscle' mould is Markis Kido.
    He looks heavy but is lighter than the willowy Sudket Prapakamol :p

    I wonder if Taufik Hidayat can make a fitter player of himself even if he wants to. For someone so resistant to gym routines, a new (punishing) regimen might be difficult to adapt to.

    WPT looks very skinny, more skinny than LCW.

    The point is, other players (except Hafiz Hashim :D) are doing that all the time. :cool:

    :D:D:D Must get them on the scales. My bet is CEH > LCW > WPT.
