Things I've learned from this forum in 2012

Post by robt-aus » Wed Dec 19, 2012 4:38 pm

1. Microwave scrambled egg omlettes are excellent, and are now a regular breakfast in my house. I learned about these from a forum post.

2. Hammer strength makes 8 different rowing machines. Wow. Just wow.

3. Improving pullups is hard for everyone.

4. Keeping a log and scheduling regular training is a good way of managing the rest of my life.

Thank you all. I've enjoyed 2012's posts and the thoughtful discussions.

I've learned that the best use for a smith machine is sit ups.

junk food still tastes really good
kpj knows a lot and communicates it in a way I can apply
we have so many cool people on this forum
ain't nothing wrong with a good bottle of red wine with my filet
robertscott writes the best BB programs, even for non bodybuilders
we have the coolest old guys
croxdale refuses to write normal posts
some of you care more about my health than I do apparently :(
all of kens questions and eyes wide open desire to follow the latest greatest bit of info he gleened, paid off huge. Then he went next level, grabbed a PT and suddenly became another forum know it all. I just bypassed all the first stages. It's more impressive to tell folks what they should do before you can do a BW Squat :mylaughingemoticon:
ironman showed me a more sensitive side. Maybe I just was't looking before
matt z cares a lot about gun rights but wont use the quote function, ever

Ken got extremely lucky. A serious powerlifter gym, with cages, platform, chalk, prowler, atlas balls, tires, farmers bars, kegs (keg carries), and on and on and on opened up 1/2 mile from his house. Oh, and did I mention the trainers are all tree-trunk-thick powerlifters? Ken wonders how he can pay back the cosmos for this kind of unearned good fortune.

What did I learn this year? If life presents an opportunity, take it. When somebody looks like they need an opportunity, make one for them. Good karma all around.

I can't think of what you're referring to, so you probably just weren't looking. That side of me is mostly hidden, but it's always there if you look.

:lol: I found that pretty funny.
