    Yes, I said you should pay $150,000 for no reason.

    i learned to swim as a kid but was never good at it.

    Unrelated: TFW you take off your shirt while making out with a chick and her face just lights up.

    But then you get blue ballls'd because she has to leave early

    but then you use the frustration to fuel a killer workout.

    I think it was in a Malcolm Gladwell book where he talked about certain neighborhoods or ethnicities not being able swim due to certain socio-economic factors.

    I grew up in the boondocks of Virginia where public pools weren't available/accessible. Took swimming lessons in college, but didn't swim much afterwards. I can float and thus stay alive for awhile, but never would be able to swim to safety, if needed.

    Jelly how upright you stay Charly. I guess having short torso and short femurs help, but still wish I could stay that upright!

    Awesome squat.

    o_O This is literally the first place I've met more than one person that can't swim.

    +1

    Can't swim, can't walk up stairs without dying, damn brah. fix yo shit.

    Mandatory classes during PE in K-12 (something like 3rd grade, 6th, 9th?) and having grown up in apts that had pools.

    My parents signed me up for swimming classes at about 12-13, I was super-embarassed because I was the only one in my class who didn't know how to swim. Later I've actually trained it for about 6months because my doctor ordered it when I busted my knees playing basketball.

    Any suggestions for a belt? I'm feeling like my core is letting up on some reps on squats and dls.

    There are multiple possibilities on the market such as TITAN, EliteFTS, etc. Just be sure to pick a good sturdy one in leather. Think 50-100 bucks. Will last you a life time and is totally worth it.

    PS: May be a bitch to break in.

    Why do people like using belts or any kind of gear for that matter when squatting? I've never felt the urge, but I've never used one so IDK.

    I guess I was always around water growing up. Learned to swim with lessons when I was 3ish. But was in water a lot when I was a baby. I can swim decently. My gf was a swimmer in high school and I'm probably going to start going with her. I'm faster than her with just a normal head out of water freestyle stroke, but can't swim for shit with my head down doing the side breathes. Freaks me out because I feel like I'm gonna suck in a bunch of water.

    Bought a Magic Bullet blender thing. Gonna make so many protein smoothies and veggie/nutrient filled goodness. Pretty excited.
