Strength Life Legacy - So the book is finished for the most part. I'm still just fine tuning things, adding pictures, and shit like that. I am basically having to make myself stop because it's already 150 or so pages and I'm sure I would eclipse 200 pretty easily if I allowed myself.
Basically, I wanted to cover not only my philosophies again, but go over even more technical aspects of the big 3. Along with that, the new strong-15 and big-15 cycles, the strong-15 short cycle, pause squat, block deadlift, and strongman deadlift cycles. Thoughts on being a man, and having a code. A ton of routines and templates, and very little on dieting.
I hate writing about dieting for the most part because it bores me. Eating to me, is pretty simple. We already know what the good foods are, we already know if you want to gain eat more, if you want to lose, eat less. Yet people obsess over everything from pre-workout shakes to what to eat before bed. I wasn't going to get into that. There are tons of diet gurus out there to be hassled for that.
UFC 146 - Good card. I guess with Overeem out for 9 months, we're gonna see another Cain/JDS showdown more than likely. Mir looked fat as hell to me. What the fuck? You'd think knowing he was going to be fighting a guy that's around 238 with quick hands, that he would have slimmed down in order to be quicker. I also told Zack (my MMA blurb guy) that that particular matchup looked TERRIBLE on paper. Mir, who has a penchant for getting rocked, against the best hands guy in the HW division who also has the best take down defense in the business. Ummmmmm, no. Terrible. And he still picked Mir. Jesus......
Oh anyway, back to Overeem. I think Reem is the only guy that has a shot to challenge JDS. Cain's standup just isn't as good, and again, with that takedown defense that JDS has that's the only place the fight is going to end up. Reem is the only guy I can think of that is going to be able to stand and bang with him. And what a great fight that would be.
Props to Big Country who I have dogged on plenty. He looked like he lost some weight, and that overhand right was just beautiful.
And to go back a few weeks, so much for Jon Jones flawless image, huh? That guy can eat a bag of Ron Jeremy dicks.
Even more on small workouts - Ok this topic got a lot of traction and Jamie and I talked about it in the podcast yesterday. Jamie pretty much reiterated what I said......small workouts are sweat breakers, in and out in 30 MAX. You are not putting heavy weight in your hands. You are not picking movements that do best with heavy weight on the bar. It's just amazing to me that guys can get confused on this concept. A small workout is something you can do with the flu, feeling like shit (like I did yesterday) and it's not a big deal. Machines, dumbbells, and lightly loaded barbells. I will be writing some examples of small routines this week to drive this point even more home, but I really can't believe it generated this much confusion.
The Grey - If you have not seen this movie, do so. I loved it. It's depressing as shit, yes. But there was so much depth to the story and had so many powerful scenes.
Sexual number - So I asked this question on FB last night because I love to generate discussion, and finding hot buttons is generally not that hard. I honestly laugh my ass off when women chime into these discussions and offer up such gems as "your number doesn't matter". Hey......ho...it does. To most guys who are looking to DATE a girl, they want to know they aren't dating some chic that spread her legs for any ol' boy at any opportunity. I would never date a chic that slept with 20 fucking guys. Jesus christ no. Now that's my own moral compass, and if yours is different that's fine. To each his own. But MOST guys, do not want to date a chic they know spread easier than warmed up Skippy on toast.
And if a woman tells you she doesn't know her "number", that means she knows she's a ho. Everyone knows their number, or ballpark. And if a chic has to use the term "ballpark" when referring to the number of meat sticks that been in her, well, no thanks. Do not want.
Memorial Day - I hope everyone took at least a minute out of their day yesterday to say thanks to a vet.
Do something interesting this week fuckers. What do you think my motto is about? No day is promised to you. Do something awesome with it.
