I am huge dude

2018-01-28 00:05:07 UTC  

I have no right being this tall

2018-01-28 00:07:06 UTC  

This gives me consolation because I have always been insecure about being small. I stopped growing when I entered high school

2018-01-28 00:07:11 UTC  

Not after I graduated lo

I was claimed my height was redistributed else where...

2018-01-28 00:10:23 UTC  

Mfw when I got everyone's height

2018-01-28 00:10:51 UTC  

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.

2018-01-28 15:16:40 UTC  

Functional (/practical) strength

@tim a.#7632 I don’t know that I’d go that far but to your point

2018-01-28 15:45:44 UTC  

But let’s not kid ourselves too much. Modern weightlifting records crush old weightlifting records.

2018-01-29 03:18:51 UTC  

9 more pounds to go!

2018-01-29 14:24:16 UTC  

Are you trying to gain or lose?

2018-01-29 15:06:37 UTC  

Always gains

Bought my ticket to IE conference. Let’s show up lean and mean.

2018-01-29 16:59:42 UTC  

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

2018-01-29 23:03:54 UTC  

Ran another OCR this weekend with my girl, a 5k like we all ran back in NE in July

2018-01-29 23:05:14 UTC  

Awesome, brother. Looking chad

2018-01-29 23:06:11 UTC  

Thanks brother! Was a lot of fun

2018-01-30 01:15:44 UTC  

What wasw your time?

2018-01-30 01:26:13 UTC  

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

2018-01-30 01:26:53 UTC  

Great fun though, can't wait to have the IE crew back for the warrior dash in July

2018-01-30 02:42:47 UTC  

Awesome @BryceB-ND#1845

2018-01-30 07:09:14 UTC  

Good man @BryceB-ND

Between local generic gym and YMCA which do you goys recommend is best for money as a gym beginner

2018-01-30 21:53:52 UTC  

Local generic gym ie 24 hr

2018-01-30 21:56:10 UTC  

Yea that's an advantage

2018-01-30 21:56:52 UTC  

Generally local generic gyms have better environments better hours and more amenities such as a sauna and have less plebes

2018-01-30 21:57:11 UTC  

But it's really about whatever place is convenient enough for you to make a habit out of going

2018-01-30 21:57:18 UTC  

Close to work or close to home

2018-01-30 21:57:44 UTC  

I think my step sister works at the YMCA

2018-01-30 21:57:48 UTC  

That could be helpful

2018-01-30 21:59:19 UTC  

Might garner a discount or something

2018-01-30 21:59:24 UTC  

Worth checking out

2018-01-30 22:00:13 UTC  

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.
