    Wife Swap Reality Show

    Just got a email from the producers of the ABC Reality Show "Wife Swap"
    They are wanting to do a show with a family that is totally involved with powerlifting as one of the families. This would be totally kickass to do and would be tons of fun. Plus there is a $20,000 paycheck for doing it.

    I went ahead and sent all our stuff in and hope that we could do it. My God this would be hilarious with my wife and kids. Anyone who knows us personally would agree

    Wolfy!!!!

    Wolfy, I've never seen an entire show, but from what I've seen, I wouldn't want to put my family through that. It appears as though they pair up totally incompatible families. Good luck with it. If you make it on, let us know. I'll watch that one.
    Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!

    I'd prolly end up swapped with some super religious lady that has never ever worked a full time job other then being a full time mom and never even seen a weight room

    And Hahaha, my kids well we'll just say they are my kids through and through.

    That would be great! I'd love to see that Wolfy!

    I'm imagining them setting you up with the nerdiest, out-of-shape family they can find, but no matter what, you'll have an awesome adventure to tell.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Oh if that's the case they better show it in the UK!

    I want to see her try and ban meat and dairy products in the house. It would be a ****fight. Afterall, these shows are basically car-crash TV.

    The heads of NAS/ASC came to all the strongman competitors a while back and asked about this. My life is too tame for it.

    Good luck man - I think it would be fun and the $20K is awesome!

    Just don't cry Wolfey.
    Whatever you do don't cry, and don't you let that other beezy boss you around!!!

    And you have to promise to let us know just how scripted it really is.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    If you get it, the first thing you need to do in front of the new wife is set up a bench in the living room, rip off a 800lb bench, turn to her and say "this is my house!"

    Make sure the At Large supplements are all sitting on the kitchen counter, medicine cabinet, bathroom sink and bedside table! Labels out!

    Kidding, that's awesome though dude. I'm imagining they'll put you with some vegan cardio family.

    Just an observation - I have only seen the show one time.

    I dont think that I would want to be sittin across the table from Mike when his wife tells him how much of a jerk I was to her, etc.

    Im just saying, I fear the Wolfe!

    what mike should do is get a large clear jar fill it with water with a tad bit of yellow food coloring and with some masking take and sharpe mark it ROIDS, then get a box of white doughnut holes and mark them dianabol
    then you can say you eat the stuff for breakfast lunch and dinner
    just to screw with the wife and audience
