    perhaps most disconcerting is the dearth of people around here who seem to be able to cook a decent steak. although, i've been told that my "medium rare" is pretty much "alive," so maybe that's the problem

    bows, I am here for you, dude.

    and briza, man, i have one of those as-seen-on-tv iron gym pull up bars and i LOVE it

    My dad always said that when I was a kid and I love that word now :3

    PS dude I hated your beanie in your last fit, everything else looked great. It gave me that crust fund kid look that I hate. I dunno what it was, the rest looked great.

    I go to my apartment complex playground for pull-ups, one of the most underrated places ever to workout. It's even better if they have the rings too.

    Yup was going to link that. I worked out with 2 guys like that before. Body through air exercises trump any machine any day of the week, dunno why everybody's on the whole I need a machine for every body part bullshit. That stuff is insane though, I've seen them grab onto fences and hold it parallel to the ground for like 20 seconds.


    ^Another example showing how there should be no excuse to have some level of physical fitness.

    WvG sweat knickers. That's why I bought 'em. (0)
    Co-signed. My problem was the side view that showed the length. Something very Legend of Zelda about it, but somehow not in a good way. Rest of it was ace, though. Never expected to like those sneakers.

    I do that when I bring my daughters to the park. I used to be able to do 1 armed pullups, but I seriously would need to lose 20 lbs to do that right now.

    Some of those exercises are tough, tough, tough. When I lived in Pasadena, one of my training partners was a Mexican guy who was like that. Until he stepped into the fight gym, he'd never been in a gym, never even lifted proper weights, but he was strong, strong, strong. He punched harder than some of the light heavyweights, and he would regularly supplex 250 lb guys. He was also sort of crazy, and for some reason, couldn't get the emotional discipline to take him to that next level, but he could easily have been a great fighter. Just goes to show that the guys at the top of the game aren't necessarily those who have the most natural talent, but are those who have a degree of natural talent, plus ridiculous work ethic.

    ^Yeah, a lot of guys just watch that online and like wow, that's awesome but don't really comprehend how fu***** insane some of those things are. The reverse rows (where you stand with your back to the bar, put your hands behind your back and do rows) is a good example. That is ridiculously hard! The core strength the guys have who hit these body weight through air exercises constantly is amazing, most guys have trouble doing simple leg lifts, much less the range of motion these guys are doing.

    A lot of the guys that do that stuff are ex inmates, as they're used to not being outfitted with a gym. I had a bodybuilding buddy who got sent to the prison for a while, it was funny the exercises they would come up with due to the lack of equipment. One thing was how they would put 3-4 guys on top of him while he would squat against a wall.

    I totally agree with you too about the talent thing. I've seen some anything but physically gifted people do some crazy things because they turned it into a lifestyle instead of a hobby.

    You mean a serious, for-real one-arm pullup, where you just let the other arm dangle (as opposed to the not real kind where you grab your forearm with your other arm)?

    If so, :worship2: :worship2: :worship2:

    Yeah. One arm, no support. The type of workouts I did were not designed to pack on muscle, but you did get strong. I wasn't as good as some guys who could like, keep their body from swaying, though. Some people are just insane. I knew a guy who could do the human flag. I tried once, and I swear that I nearly broken my back.
