Got stuck without the damn protein I brought for myself. WTF?! Are college kids really that dumb nowadays?

I would have taken everything

I guess I should have been more clear and said "help yourself to anything you can eat while you're still here, but don't take everything in my f'n cooler when you leave."

I've got a 12 year old sister who's a gymnast. I know her training is pretty serious and hardcore with 10 hours of training per week, but I've never seen her train in person.

She's been wanting to go to the gym with me for some time so I finally brought her today. I was very impressed. Started with a mobility warmup which it turned out she hardly needed at all. Did Stripped 5x5 and she had little problem doing sumo DLs, wide stance low bar squats, chinups and heavy DB rows. She managed to get 15 lbs for 10 reps OHP, which I think is pretty damn good for a 12 year old girl. Also did 40 push ups in a row.

However, I was the most impressed by her mentality. I noticed her pain face during the mobility work but she just replied with something along the lines of "I'm fine. It's training". When we got back home, she wanted my approval of her post workout meal. And now, just before going to bed, she did a short foam roll routine. Very proud, haha.

That's awesome. I do recall you saying that your parents being weird to you about your desire to get big and whatnot, make sure that does not carry over to her. You're old enough to know better, but harsh criticism from parents at 12 years old will stick.

I've got a 15 year old brother who wants to start training, I can't wait, he's going to turn into a beast quick. At 15 he's already 6'2 but he's not skinny, frame is very well filled out. He plays basketball obviously, and trains for that but does not do too much weights. As soon as he comes home from Basketball Camp i'm going to sign him up for my gym and put him on stripped 5x5 also.

That's why USA has a pretty decent pool of woman olympic lifters. More so than men. Most of them come from a gymnastic background which gives them awesome mobility, strength, and spacial awareness.

LOL

my friend and I joke that Hong Kong's national lifts arethe behind-the-neck smith press or the one-leg-on-bench-one-leg-hanging-in-the-air-half-ROM-bench

The only thing different about my gym than gyms in the USA is that the trainers are slightly stupider/pervy and that absolutely nobody, NOBODY racks their weights. I go to probably the most ghetto gym Physical still runs (it's moving in about 10 days to a new location) and nobody works out there but Pakistanis and Jamaicans. It has its charm, somehow.

edit: I do have some stories from China, though. I posted them before but once a guy took weights off the bench while the bar was in my hands; I asked him what the hell he was doing and he apologized and put them back. There were also these two middle-aged gay guys who would squat/spot together, I don't think they spoke English but they'd do squats/thrusts in the rack while yelling and every so often one would ask HOW DO YOU FEER? and the other would yell I FEER SO GOOOOOOOD icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
