  • damn son, you're scrawny

    you got a cute little hawk there
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

      • 1) When did it become acceptable for dudes to shave their crotch fuzz and wear their shorts so low I can see the base of their shaft?! How do they even lift without their dong flapping about like a garden hose strapped to a rabid cat? Ridiculous.

        2) Speaking of ridiculous, how come Game of Thrones, a manly beardly show with swordfights and fisticuffs, has an average nudity level of 3 cocks to 1 breast? Re-DICK-ulous.

        3) It should be socially acceptable as well as a moral obligation for any food capable of being eaten with a large wooden mixing spoon to be done so without ridicule or having to answer many questions on why am I eating a salad and steak with a spoon, and why did I bring said spoon to a fancy restaurant.

              I do tend to mix up Game of Thrones with Gay Men of Thrones. Though the swordplay is quite better in the latter.

              • I get it. You hate Mondays. Congratufuckinglations.

                Now shut up and train.


                You know what I don't get, dudes? The fact that corporate whiny-bros think that because they punch cards Monday through Friday the rest of the world thinks that's a standard workweek. I work Monday through Squaterday (Squaterday is the day I created that resides just after dusk on Sunday. This is when everything manly and beardly comes out for one last set of ridic-heavy squats before calling it a week). I have no "weekend". If anything I get a few hours respite on Tuesdays and Thursdays midday where I lay on a foam roller and pray to God my little dude doesn't wake up early from his nap.

                I did the corporate lemming gigs. I worked everything from a HUD inspector to a mutual fund analyst. Even then I never assumed that those around me were on the same schedule. On top of that I sure as shit didn't assume that they were on the same work schedule AND they too hated the beginning of this proposed work week.

                Dude comes in today all, "Fuck life, bro. It's Monday. I'm sad." And I'm like, Why? So he says, "It's the beginning of the work week. I have 5 days of BS before I can have fun again."

                First off, shut up and train. Secondly; are you serious, dude?! Instead of lamenting about the hours you have to put in to make your monthly booze installments, why not focus on the hours of potential that lay ahead?

                24 hours in a day
                Minus 9 hours of work related activity
                Minus 1 hour commute
                Minus 8 hours of sleep

                That leaves 6 hours to do whatever you want, and I'm not math genius (although I do play one on TV) but 6 hours is about 9x as long as a normal training session lasts.

                So now you have five 40-minute blocks of time to mentally prepare for. You have five opportunities to better yourself. Five workouts to get you that much sexier for the weekend.

                If you look at it that way Monday (or whatever day starts your work week) is a clean slate, an empty whiteboard, a perfectly clean white t that you'll nosebleed the shit out of after a new PR.

                In other words, fuck yes it's Monday.



                After 14 sets on Squaterday.

                  • Kat brought in DQ Blizzards for everyone today. Dirk and Bull had a competition on who could eat theirs the fastest. Two things to note: 1) They both mixed in 100% Whey Isolate into their blizzards to make them "recovery shakes", and 2) Both had to stop after 15 seconds because of debilitating ice cream headaches.

                    Also, Of course I had a new client today.

                    Her: "Is it always like this in here?"
                    Me: "Dude, this doesn't even get close to how hectic this place gets."
                    Her: "Isn't it a distraction?"
                    Me: "Not if you ignore them."
                    Her: "I don't think I can, they're all so lou-"
                    Me: "Shut up and squat."

                    • As someone who struggles with auditory distraction issues (if I'm stressed/anxious which I would be in a gym, I have a really hard time focusing on anything if there's background noise), I commiserate, however, your response is perfect for keeping that kind of person on track!

                        I have a few clients like you. I think they gravitated towards my gym because although I may come across as a bit abrasive at times I do have a knack for commanding focus, whether it be on me for instructions or for the upcoming lift... or, hell, for Dirk DURING a lift he has to have me harp on him to focus. That dude gets distracted mid-squat and will miss the lift if the ice cream truck goes by.

                          • Haha if only! My distraction usually results in lack of function, which could potentially be dangerous. I tend to find myself unable to speak and raging in my head trying to figure out how/what to say to communicate.

                              That's exactly how he is.

                              Example: I was having everybody do a barbell complex as a warmup yesterday morning. Basically it's taking a barbell, loading some weight on it, and then doing a series of lifts (power clean, front squat, press, back squat, good morning, press) without putting the bar down. They were supposed to do 5 sets of 8 with a 20 second pause between sets. Well, everybody gets cooking like good little children so I walk away to take care of the morning paperwork. When I come back the group is down one person.

                              Of course Dirk is missing. Strangely enough so was his bar.

                              My gym is a big open rectangle, there aren't any places to hide, so either Dirk turned Kevin Bacon in Hollow Man, or he went outside... with my $300 Oly bar. I trotted over to the window and there he was, completing his 3rd complex, talking to some chica in a bright yellow Charger. He even put the bar down, looked at his watch for 20 seconds, then picked the bar back up and started the 4th complex all while making small talk.

                              I honestly couldn't get mad. I mean, that's pretty much the same way I met Mrs. McCool.

                                You'd fit right in since most powerlifters only grunt, growl, or scream.
