The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    lol @ Alex. Judging by your stats, I'm sure you're dating Wonder Woman or at the very least a fitness model.


    Some update shots. lol @ calves.





    Vicodin prescription has been doing its job. very comfortable at the moment.


    As dumb as it sounds, I am concerned about losin my strength. Gym is going to have to wait, however.

    Good to hear the vicodin is working. Your strength will probably be fine. Plus, now we get a chance to catch up with you :/.

    Haha, thats very kind Luna.


    I'm hoping I'll only lose a little bit of strength. Perhaps ten pounds or so off my squat. It will come back quickly, I'm sure.

    Deads are gonna be out for a while. Probably SLDLs as a replacement. I am quite irate at conventionals right now.

    seem to be getting a bit better. left leg feels very good. right leg is still mad at me.

    told my parents today. mom naturally flipped out. Dad was more rational.

    shot out a stream of projectile pus two feet today. shit was worthy of YouTube.

    Probay won't return to conventional deads after this. If i do, shinguards motherfucker.

    heard back from the doc's office today.

    It's not MRSA. thankful for that. Still a shitty staph infection.

    Right leg is feelin much better after the Fantasia 2000 pus-fest that occurred in the afternoon.

    Won't return to training until wounds are fully healed up.

    Yes, death by deadlifts woulda sucked.

    I see your girlfriend is more fit than you.

    It bothers me that survivor put her in the long pants. Clearly, a move to hide her amputation.

    haha, I've been dating her for seven years. One does not admit to pre-existing relationships when on survivor, it hinders the ability to work it and get ahead.

    The loss of her dad in 2010 sounded very rough. Heroic man, it seems.

    It was rough. As for the rest, we'll leave that where it is...

    I thought we were discussing your infection.

    I was going to make fun of you until I read you had a legit infection, I'll just make fun of your immune system instead.

    Don't die on us man.

    LOL @ this...

    Those cuts are from DL's? Srs?

    That's some weird stuff.

    If you can't do much lower body stuff, just bench 4 times a week then. That'll make up for it.

    usually never that bad, but I DLed with knee sleeves on to protect my shins. Just made it worse.

    Feeling much better today. Can walk pretty well without painkillers. Will return to normal activites tomorrow. Hoping to return to the gym next week.

    Mrsa will abscess out your flesh like that without ever getting cut at all. I didn't have so much as a scratch on my forearm and it tore into me, the shit is crazy.
