Being an assistant weights coach has definitely been fun. I will be happy once I've graduated and am doing this for an actual career

2018-06-01 03:45:03 UTC  

But hopefully higher on the food chain lol

@here With the warm season officially upon us, I want to remind everyone about our Strava app athletic club. Request to join online or in-app (follow up with a DM here) and I'll get you approved. https://www.strava.com/clubs/PeakAesthetics

2018-06-02 21:49:32 UTC  

What's this?

2018-06-02 22:12:58 UTC  

A fitness (primarily cardio) tracking app.

2018-06-02 22:14:37 UTC  

>Cardio

Whelp, I won't be doing much then lol

2018-06-02 23:13:48 UTC  

Haha @Suomi Stronk we got that warrior dash coming up

2018-06-02 23:14:17 UTC  

I fully embrace the fact that it will be just as miserable as it was for me last year 😛

2018-06-02 23:14:31 UTC  

Although now I'm about 40 lbs lighter, so that should help a bit lol

2018-06-03 10:02:19 UTC  

40 pounds?!?

2018-06-03 10:02:29 UTC  

You could only have weighed 185 last year i thought

2018-06-03 20:14:33 UTC  

So I've got a hypermobile shoulder (a "double-joint") and it keeps me from benching as much as I'd like. Anyone have a good set or stretch for this?

2018-06-03 23:12:24 UTC  

@Deleted User I'm pretty sure I was a few pounds above 200 at the time, maybe just about. I'm about 165 now.

2018-06-03 23:50:46 UTC  

Wow

2018-06-03 23:50:53 UTC  

You’ll run like a gazelle

2018-06-05 18:19:51 UTC  

Quick, someone give me motivation to get my tired ass in the gym today

2018-06-05 18:24:36 UTC  

Our enemies are working while you relax if you don't go

2018-06-05 18:44:56 UTC  

Fug

@Robtheroman Whats your take on bare knuckle fighting? Does it display masculine virtues, or stupidity and barbarianism? Personally I would never get into that, I value my brain cells and face too much.

2018-06-05 21:51:25 UTC  

For my part, I'm for it.

2018-06-07 10:15:09 UTC  

Those new stickers are bad ass

2018-06-08 05:18:36 UTC  

Go to one minute in

@Pat-MA the bareknuckle thing would actually do wonders for head injury’s in fighting. The gloves are not to protect your head they’re to protect your hand. A fighters hand can only last for so many big shots without gloves before they can’t hit anymore.

2018-06-08 17:16:12 UTC  

So how does that prevent head injuries?

2018-06-08 19:51:56 UTC  

That is absolutely correct. In the pre-glove days of the UFC just about every fighter who fell out due to injury did so with a broken hand.

2018-06-09 00:07:23 UTC  

Do girls melt when you tell them badass stuff like that

2018-06-09 02:16:21 UTC  

Yeah I was up front shooeing away the rainbow vestment clergy.

2018-06-10 18:32:08 UTC  

How often do you guys max out

2018-06-10 18:36:32 UTC  

EVERY DAY

2018-06-10 18:37:55 UTC  

Realistically, maybe every 3 months just to adjust my percentages on my program

2018-06-10 18:38:22 UTC  

Doing max weight too often has more cons than pros

2018-06-11 20:24:59 UTC  

Have you all ever done Bar Bros routines? You're all probably really against it, but that's the type of stuff I did in HS, and I want to get back into it

2018-06-11 21:19:10 UTC  

First I’ve heard of it

2018-06-11 21:26:34 UTC  

It's just body weight stuff. They mostly do stuff on the bar (hence bar bros) like flagpoles and muscle ups

2018-06-11 21:33:52 UTC  

Oh damn, I just went on their website for the first time in years. These guys got gay as heck, son

2018-06-11 21:34:12 UTC  

And very obviously don't just do body weight

2018-06-11 21:40:10 UTC  

I used to do this. I was doing pretty well, too. I could do 3x20 pistol squats, and 3x10 uneven pullups
