1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Any suggestions for cheap workout shorts? I keep checking Marshall's (etc.) but all they have are basketball shorts (which are too baggy for squatting).

    HAH. I make this breakthrough after 16 weeks of beltless training and probably hours upon hours of reading PRI shit. Then the world record squatter posts about it an hour later -

    Welp, bought some Romaleos. $150 is my budget for entertainment and items, so looks like I'm doing jack shit for the rest of the month.

    I need to step-up my gym fashion game though. This globo gym everyone wears very stylish digs. I feel poverty status with my mark rippetoe shorts that have a big hole in the crotch and the same white T every workout. I wish Umbro still made male soccor shorts in that vintage pattern, so cool. I have a few made in USA ones but they are decades old and flimsy.


    Hah, that got me tickled.

    Target

    Always something on sale or on clearance. Some of the C9 shorts have shorter inseams too.

    Yea those are awesome. Been miring them for a long long time.

    I really wanted to buy Ristos but I heard there sizing are a bit weird. Which I don't want to deal with because I have a wide ass foot and I knew I'd fit into the Nikes.

    Need to stop buying shit. Just spent $70 on some since wooden rings for my pull up bar. Getting bored of pull ups, dips and ab wheels so I thought id add some variety. Adding a bit of cardio since my weight loss is stalling. 20km cycle every day. Takes like 40 minutes.
