  • Dude, you gotta check out Zach Anner. This guy's my new hero. He's fucking awesome -- his attitude, his sense of humour, his tireless optimism. I'm never working out on Wednesdays again without watching Workout Wednesdays. Two examples:

    • Holy shit...that was fucking awesome!!! That dude rocks. Just don't watch while drinking coffee because it will be squirting out of your nose(I found that out the hard way). He just got a new subscriber.

        I discovered this guy on Soulpancake. He's doing a show on faith and religions on that channel, which has been great so far. His attitude blows me away. Not to mention his humour fucking kills me, as you found out the coffee-spewing way!

            • Today's workout:

              80 lb sandbag cleans on to the shoulder, 6 x 12
              75 lb barbell overhead press, 3 x 15
              Parallel pull-ups, 3 x 10
              120 lb sandbag bear-hug squats, 5 x 10
              Push-ups, 40-20-15
              Chin-ups, 1 x 10

              It was a rainy day today, so I had to modify things slightly by working out in the garage. I didn't want to mess up the garage floor by accidentally dropping a kettlebell on it. I found an old barbell in the garage that belongs to my father in law with 75 lbs on it, so I decided to put it to use. The pull-ups were done on an I beam in the garage. The bear hug squats are still the biggest ass kicker. The hardest part is cleaning it up and then letting go to catch it in the bear-hug. You end up huffing and puffing before you are even ready to start.

              My kids came home today and told me about an anti-bullying assembly they had at school. The told me how Batman and Captain America were both there. I started telling them that it is really amazing since they are from two different universes. Before I got into it anymore I noticed they were giving me the "My dad's a geek" look. Well...they're right, I am.

              • Not a very primal weekend. I actually started out OK on Saturday, but Ben and Jerry's Cinnamon Bun ice cream is a real thing and...well...lets just say things happened. Sunday we took the kids to the pumpkin patch. This pumpkin patch is like a carnival and pumpkin patch combined. Things like funnel cakes, deep fried oreos, and kettle corn were consumed(at least I did manage to avoid the deep fried snickers bar). It was fun, but the food hangover just reminds me why this will only be a once in a while thing.

                • LMAO those videos were great. "I don't want to cheat you out of my workout."


                  Sounds like a fun food weekend. Good luck in your hangover recover

                  • So, I came across this today. All I can say is HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! If you follow Jillian Michaels kettlebell technique you will most likely wind up as a cripple. And she gets payed a shit load of money for telling people to do this crap. Worst.Swings.Ever!

                    • Oh my god! Neck bent down and spine/head alignment totally horizontal?! WTF?! (the plyometric part didn't seem that bad, actually, but everything else what W.T.F. worthy.)

                      And Jon, you seriously gotta watch Zach's stuff. He's my biggest inspiration right now. There are a lot of super-buff blah blah blah video people, but that guy gives it his all and with serious humour. He doesn't even care about his disability except that it provides hilarity and great quotes.

                      • Anyone who takes Jillian Michaels' advice on anything deserves what they end up with... unfortunately, sheeple like to do what famous people say, no matter how idiotic.

                          Yes, he is funny as hell. I've watched 5-6 of his videos and the dude tries hard. The bench one was killing me. "Why did I start with so heavy a weight when no one can see it anyway?!" lol. And when he does the pull up and says, "You make great guacamole!" I about choked on my coffee.

                            There's no doubt about that. Most people, many of my family members included, think "They're on TV so they must know what they are doing." No matter how much a tell them that the are full of shit, no one listens.

                            And Canio...I believe I mentioned not watching those videos while drinking coffee. Again, no one listens!

                              Pft, Jillian Michaels said it was fine to drink coffee while watching those video and she is on TV!

                              • Today's workout:

                                120 lb sandbag cleans, 4 x 8
                                barbell overhead press, 3 x 15
                                parallel pull-ups, 3 x 10
                                Push-ups, 3 x 10
                                120 lb sandbag bear-hug squats, 4 x 10

                                Seems like a short workout(and I guess it was), but it took a lot out of me. I did a bunch of yard work yesterday and may have been a little fatigued from that still. Either way I still felt good doing it. It's is a rainy day again, so I had to do a modified workout in the garage, so no kettlebell stuff or different pulling stuff with the rings. I wonder what the winter workouts will be like this year. It's already getting to cold to wear the VFFs in the morning when I walk the dog. I was looking around for a minimalist winter shoe and have have a question. Minimalist shoes use less material than normal shoes(being minimalist and all) and so should cost less to manufacture, so why do they cost so much fucking more money?
