I am huge dude
I have no right being this tall
This gives me consolation because I have always been insecure about being small. I stopped growing when I entered high school
Not after I graduated lo
I was claimed my height was redistributed else where...
Mfw when I got everyone's height
Mfw when I'll never look juicy cuz I'm so tall
@Deleted User I went to a machine shop we do business with to drop of an engine head. The guy working there was about 5’5 and 140 lbs but he threw around the cylinder head like it was nothing. Big muscles = strong is a meme.
Functional (/practical) strength
@tim a.#7632 I don’t know that I’d go that far but to your point https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nbVmRT13dXY
But let’s not kid ourselves too much. Modern weightlifting records crush old weightlifting records.
9 more pounds to go!
Are you trying to gain or lose?

Bought my ticket to IE conference. Let’s show up lean and mean.
Don't be this guy.
@BigBadSaxon - ID Lose fat right now. Cutting to 170 but trying to at least keep most of my muscle mass. Tis a challenge but I'm surviving thus far.
Anyone ever have a lack of appetite after working out? I'm trying to eat my post workout meal and I'm having a hard time wanting to eat
Ran another OCR this weekend with my girl, a 5k like we all ran back in NE in July
Awesome, brother. Looking chad
Thanks brother! Was a lot of fun
What wasw your time?
It was slower, it was my gf's first event like this so she more or less set the pace while I motivated her to push herself
Great fun though, can't wait to have the IE crew back for the warrior dash in July
Between local generic gym and YMCA which do you goys recommend is best for money as a gym beginner
Local generic gym ie 24 hr
Yea that's an advantage
Generally local generic gyms have better environments better hours and more amenities such as a sauna and have less plebes
But it's really about whatever place is convenient enough for you to make a habit out of going
Close to work or close to home
I think my step sister works at the YMCA
That could be helpful
Might garner a discount or something
Worth checking out
I went to the YMCA years ago, I liked it. Lots of people there, but no one using the heavy weights. Plus my YMCA had a bad ass locker room, sauna, steam room, massive shower room. All pluses for me.
