Which? I want the cashmere jacket. I have nothing with patch pockets right now and need a blazer!

 

Depends on the chest size though. I didn't see him specify that. Everything else checks out for me, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Not me, but the example that Wes and Spoo et al set gives me enough encouragement to think that if I were ever to lose my job, I could step it up and make enough to at least keep us off the streets. Maybe I could even make more than I am at my current job, but there's no way to know that unless I tried it, which I don't have the guts to do. And, long-run, my prospects are probably better in my current career.

What is mind boggling about this statement is that Spoo has another job...:puzzled:

I know. It's truly amazing what Spoo does and what Wes has done. I feel no shame in admitting I do not have it in me to hustle 100+ hours a week like they do, and probably never will. They (and others like them) are a unique breed.

The most important thing to remember about number 3 in my experience is that you cannot out run or out train a bad diet.

And the converse (inverse? contrapositive? whatever.) is also true: it is possible to do little or no exercise and still lose weight with the right diet. It's pretty much what I've done.

A proper diet with a shitty workout program will yield positive results (albiet dangerous via bad form, etc). A shitty diet with an amazing workout program will yield shitty results. Abs are made in the kitchen.

spoo puts in 100+ hrs/week doing this? that explains it.

that said, its a fun thing to do so 100 probably isn't as "bad" as it sounds...
