Just did a squat session with them. These shoes are the shit 10/10 would recommend

2017-12-27 04:56:05 UTC  

Don't wear those in a black neighborhood or they will steal them right off your feet

2017-12-27 05:31:41 UTC  

One of the most well put together WN cinema and it's great before a workout to raise those t levels

Isn't Wim Hof basically a con artist? Someone give me the quick rundown on him

2017-12-28 22:57:38 UTC  

Workout. Steam room. Shower. Protein shake. English tea. I struggle to imagine that there can be a better recipe for the makings of a well lived day.

Well that and crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women. But otherwise, yeah.

Or as @Suomi Stronk might say, “The open steppe, a fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.”

2017-12-29 00:16:31 UTC  

You talking shit there boss? @Reinhard Wolff

2017-12-29 00:23:38 UTC  

I'm just trying to honor your customs.

Gonna be on this livestream soon with Byron de la Vandal and Blacke Lucca. Check it out:

Waking up and doing pushups until you can't anymore is literally the best way to start your day.

I’m gonna @everyone this as a PSA to you younger guys. So, I’m going back and watching the early days of the UFC. At about 1996 - 1998, long after Royce Gracie left his mark on the game, the “Uber-Body” athletes took over. Steroids were obviously abound but, in any event, for about a year or so, the UFC was dominated by hyper-muscled men with body fat of between 6 and 9 percent. They smashed everyone they faced within 2 minutes, and they looked like Greek statues chiseled from stone.
However, by the end of 1997 (I’m at UFC 16 right now), something became pretty apparent. If you could survive these guys for five minutes, their stamina PLUMMETED dramatically. I mean, to the point of where at minute 7 or so, they would literally be getting punched in the face and were too tired to lift their hands up.
I look at their physiques, and they look like professional body-builders. Every vein popping. Do you have any idea how much oxygen it takes to fuel all that muscle mass? It also takes some body fat. By 1998, the Muhammad Ali body style (about 10-15 percent body fat) was back in full control.
Case and point, either be an elite body builder or an elite warrior. You can’t be both.

Very true, gotta make sure you do your cardio too

2017-12-31 00:22:48 UTC  

McGregor lost his boxing match because of cardio

2017-12-31 00:23:09 UTC  

It's a balancing act, really

2017-12-31 00:23:22 UTC  

McGregor is a perfect example.

2017-12-31 00:23:48 UTC  

You need to have the strength to fight (Via Muscle Mass) but the lungs to keep going.

2017-12-31 00:24:02 UTC  

I actually have you in mind @Suomi Stronk. Footballers tend to burst then rest. But what if you have to burst then no rest?

2017-12-31 00:24:18 UTC  

You have a very low body fat. Well [email protected]

2017-12-31 00:24:26 UTC  

I ran into this issue a lot in wrestling, as I had the strength to get most people in either the first or second period, but if it went into the third I was gassed.

2017-12-31 00:24:34 UTC  


2017-12-31 00:25:30 UTC  

It just depends what your strategy is. Either overwhelm your opponent quickly or wait him out until an opportunity opens up.

2017-12-31 00:26:20 UTC  

It depends on what energy system you train during exercise

2017-12-31 00:26:31 UTC  

Well, you can overwhelm with more than 9 percent body fat.

2017-12-31 00:28:44 UTC  

I just bought an exercise bike 👍

2017-12-31 00:30:03 UTC  

How do you find the balance so you can fuel yourself?

2017-12-31 00:30:24 UTC  

In 2018 I really want to take up running and swimming to supplement my weight training

2017-12-31 00:31:17 UTC  

Back in 9th grade though I was a younger lad, I was in the best shape of my life and could run a mile in 5 minutes. And I would love to get back to that but also have the strength of a Greek god haha

2017-12-31 00:31:31 UTC  

Did someone say cardio? Time to shill our Strava club again @everyone . DM me your Strava name and I'll send an invite.

2017-12-31 00:31:58 UTC  

Haha dude if you can run a mile that fast you definitely do not have much mass, but that is FAST

2017-12-31 00:32:07 UTC  

What is strava @Argument of Perigee

2017-12-31 00:32:20 UTC  

And yeah @Pat-MA I am very slim. I don't have a lot of muscle mass

2017-12-31 00:32:30 UTC  

Strava is a running/cycling fitness tracker.

2017-12-31 00:32:36 UTC  

I can't decide if that's good or bad. I don't like having to choose between speed or strength

2017-12-31 00:33:35 UTC  

Hey man just gotta make the best of what you have been given right? I am thin too and can run a mile in 6 min, but part of me has wished I was a little bigger. But at the end of the day, I try to make the best of what I've been given

2017-12-31 00:34:15 UTC  

@Pat-MA I just want to be in the best physical shape I can be in. I think I rather be lean and mean fast than not be able to touch my shoulders 😂

2017-12-31 00:35:27 UTC  

Dude running a mile in 5 min is wicked fast. That is something to take pride in. Most people could never be physically capable of doing that
