LIGHT WEIGHT BABY
NBC Sports, the de facto owner of the Olympic Games, just doesn't include the “testosterone” sports in their coverage – unless there is a severe injury that looks very bad (good) on TV. Swimming is fine (no hairy men), all women's sports are fine (no hairy men), gymnastics, ditto (basically a children's sport), skiing is okay (hair doesn't show through lycra), and the equestrian events are just fine (horses are innocent even if hairy). What you will not see are more than one or two Weightlifters, shot-putters, hammer throwers, or discus throwers. Javelins are too pointy, as are epees and sabers, and such weapon-y things are threatening. Basically, you get to see activities you would personally enjoy on a Sunday afternoon – you know, wholesome stuff without the slightest whiff of meanness, bullying, or testosterone.
These errors of omission are quite thoroughly intentional, and are designed by the people who present the vast majority of most people's exposure to the Olympics, 99% of whom are not watching the internet feeds. The Media controls the popular culture, and control is, by definition, not accidental.
Speaking of that Lindsey Von got BTFOD tonight. She was the one who said she's boycotting the 2028 Olympics because it's being hosted in racist America. She's a white American BTW
She said she refuses to ski for America during the 2028 Olympics, which was funny because 2028 is the summer Olympics
@Mark Vandal#5146 I actuallly oloed
I doubt she still is. She's 30 years old
Here's a shooting and shooting sports podcast I'm working on for the coming months. https://discord.gg/4tNANAr
@Tyler0317 I laughed hard as fuck at work when I got to the test scores part
@Deleted User What do you think about a 'gym motivation' (or just #motivation) channel?
Kind of like a whitepills For working out channel?
Quotes, pics, inspirational books, videos
In theory this entire server is supposed to be gym motivation.
videos, books, pics, quotes, etc like Saxon said
That's a good point William
This server is the reason I squeezed in a training session today between my two jobs
Have some heavy deads tonight so gonna have a vid
Time for a frigid garage workout. Should have gotten a space heater back in December.
Nice. I've been doing those all winter.
I was lifting in the cold until my landlord let me use his garage haha
What are some good workouts that you can do at home without weights?
I’d just do a search for calisthenics workouts
Eventually, you will need to use weights to continue making progress.
You can get shredded but it'd be very hard to get BIG
@Warren H The FFL workout will get you in amazing shape if you can make it work for you. No gym needed. (If you can, lifting is still great and you should get a membership)
This is for the days when I don't make it to the gym. I do workout with weights regularly. Thanks for the suggestions
French Foreign Legion
