Something I noticed...

http://exrx.net/Kinesiology/Errors.html#anchor2174611

I wandered here out of curiosity about bench grip width.

Look at the diagram. Look at the person's head specifically. Does that look deliberate to anyone else?

Here's an idea

I had this idea as a way to supplement my income. I could get an ice cream truck and drive around the gyms in the city, but instead of ice cream I'd sell stuff like Black Powder or No-Xplode drinks or high-quality protein shakes - for the price of a red bull and mixed right there. I could change the...

Peeves

This still about Pet Peeves? "Hey there. I saw you on the incline press machine staring at me for 17 seconds. That must mean you know what you want, and men who know what they want get me ALL wet." I can only imagine this is what some guys think. -------------------- Also, I hate how some nights at ...

There's a middle-aged guy who likes to pal around with everyone in the locker room. He's short and kinda pushy and forward. He likes to nitpick other guys he saw when he was working out. Something never seemed right about him, then someone informed me he's a convicted murderer. --------------- The f...

How to Lose Weight for the XX-Chromosomed Types

http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/personal/08/01/o.women.weight.loss.math/index.html More self-coddling crap for women. I like the part where 'Just Having Worked Out' subtracts 7 weight points while 'eating Death By Chocolate Cake' adds 6. Because 20 minutes on the recumbent will burn calories in exce...

Disturbing Moment...

I'm surrounded by friends, family, and coworkers who want to "lose weight" Every day I overhear bad dietary information and exercise advice being passed around. Sometimes it's just a small comment that suggests complete ignorance, but it still drives me nuts. But this was the worst... I went out to ...

140-->230? ... Christian Bale is a badass! I typed those numbers off the top of my head... I went back to the source and found this: "Bale normally weighs around 185 and dropped down to 121 for “The Machinist.” He then went all the way up to 220 when that finished in order to get ready for “Batman ...

Don't get me wrong. I don't like to judge people at the gym... I used to be horribly overweight myself. But someone who won't even try to make a real effort is fair game when they eat two and half pizzas in the center of the gym floor.

Fun at the Gym

So the local gym does this free pizza day once a month. They fill a big table with a dozen pizzas, which they replace every hour or so. Big pizza buffet. At first I was flabbergasted, but now realize it's a brilliant business move. People come in, do their 20 relaxed minutes on the recumbent bike wh...

Routines Question

I have a question about the workout templates, which I'm sure stems from my own inability to understand it... General workout sense on this site maintains that fewer basic routines per workout (about 5) are always best and eschews isolation techniques. But when I look at the workout templates, only ...
