Most people respond to personality and the way you present yourself. Just focus on being awesome with the shit you can change and the world will fall in line.
Not saying it's not a challenge sometimes, but hey,
265

taller than the girl = not short. i agree with you otherwise.

slightly related: working in retail has opened my eyes to how fucking perverted women can be; if you think guys are bad, you have no idea. pretty jacked dude came in and i was subjected to an essay on how his ass was great: lift, cheek separation, protrusion. i kid you not. i tuned out after the "i would shred cheese on his abs" comments.

jacked short dude came in and everything was followed by "...but he's short." poor guy, had a ridiculous physique, couldn't get any love though.

Would not want to be the size to total 3000lb, fuck that.

Rambo, not sure what your milk problem might be, but I had massive digestive problems for years. All kinds of tests to try and diagnose the disorder.
With an elimination diet I discovered intolerance for soy and milk. Doctors said it must be lactose intolerance, but the lactase pills didn't work regardless of how many I took.

I tried all kinds of milk substitutes and low-lactose foods; goat milk, keffir, whatever, nothing worked. I started to suspect casein intolerance.

Whey isolates, I recently discovered I can tolerate them. BUT! I splurged and tried some casein. It was like someone set off a freaking gas bomb in my gut and transported me back to the bad old days. Plus asthma, hives, psoriasis burst out of Pandora's supplement jar.

I discovered this casein intolerance on the day that I had to sit through a 4 hour meeting. It was fun.

All the fat, olive oil and tomatoes keeps it from drying out and its delicious. Really good in a tortilla too with some cheese or spicy mayonnaise, stops you from feeling sick from eating so much. Can usually get 1.5-2lb of it in, in a setting.

Theres this chinese kid at my gym, probably a bit older then me, rail thin. Does every possible isolation exercise in a massive super set with ridiculously low weights, as in like 4kg 2 armed tricep extension, I know he's weak, but like he could easily do 8kg. Takes like every possible supplement, all those prework out stims and shit. Really want to help him, but I don't want to spend 2 hours teaching him form. Every couple weeks I try bench 135lb for as many reps as I can just for funzies and it probably helps a bit, got like 22 or 23 or something today. Asked him to spot me for it, went to failure and on the last rep I couldn't get the bar up. He couldn't get the bar up off my chest and then walked off when he couldn't. Had to yell for someone to help me and some big man walked over and pulled it up. No longer feel the need to help him.

If I miss a rep on something like 135 I just bounce the weight off my trachea to re-rack it.

Just tried on the rolex my granddad gave me a couple years ago, haven't worn it in ages for some reason. The thing, which makes it valuable is it's got some old modal of bracelet with like rivets, which rolex doesn't make anymore and thus doesn't make extra links for. It doesn't fit my wrist anymore. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU DEADLIFTS AND ROWS AND POTENTIALLY WRIST WRAPS BECAUSE I THINK THEY MAKE MY FOREARMS BIGGER.

My trachea is destroyed from smoking, should have tried to glute bridge it up.

I could think of worse problems than my Rolex not fitting my wrist...

Anyone have any suggestions or advice regarding dip/pullup belts? Gym doesn't have one and was thinking of bringing my own (and fuck holding dumbbells between your legs).

Buy one online. It will last you years and years.

First shit just got real -worthy moment at the gym today. Was lifting with a dude (national level competitor, -94 class), guy took a 130 that usually would've been easy as pie - proceeds to black the fuck out during the jerk. It was good that he managed to dump it slightly forward so it didn't hit him on the way back. Kind of a harrowing sight when ppl just drop like liquid, also the 130kg bar coming down too didn't make the situation much better.

Did paused box squats at the gym today because I haven't done them in a while. Did 120kg for 10x2. Fairly big guy asks to work in with me, reps at 280kg for 5 without a belt. Feels bad man. Also stopped using a belt on squats, doesn't feel like im getting much out of it, helps tonnes on deadlifts probably get 20-30kg out of it, but it just kind of hurts on squats.

I dropped my weight on squats a little bit and have been squatting without a belt, but when hitting over 405 I throw it on..
post #11805 of 57264
I just don't really find it does anything for me on squats. I think im not as good at pushing my stomach into it on squats as I am deadlifts.
