Yeah, or even if he stubs his toe, his foot's going to explode into a bloody mess of meat and bone. Also, think of all the bugs and stuff he must get in his mouth at supersonic speed. That can't be nice.

Of course he can vibrate the molecules of his body around the obstacles (quantum tunneling) which how he runs through solid objects. I think that's a cop out though.

I burst a blood vessel in my eye the other day while I was pressing.

That's a level of hardcore the rest of you mere mortals can only dream of attaining.

I saw two people squatting on bosu balls in the gym today. They were actually doing it.

I always kinda hoped it was just a massive joke, and nobody really did it, but clearly they do.

Has anyone seen Hoosegow around? I saw something on a thread from someone designing their first program, but I haven't seen anything else from him. He just posted on FB that he has won a national championship, and has qualified for a world championship! And it's all because of the advice I have given him through the years. He didn't post the last part--that was my interpretation.

It apparently was the USAPL Masters Nationals. They haven't posted results on their site yet.

Negative Doc. It was the APF masters. USAPL doesn't like lifters like me.
