The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    You will soon see Getfit in OngII Flying Knee Thingys of Doom see if the feisty greek can survive the kicks of Steel Leg From Shaolin Soccer,Dim Mak(def touch) from ChungLee,and Flying Crane by Daniel-san-El Pietro

    Lift for gains,not glory.Control your ego and the weight

    You're blazing white hot,anyone ever tell you that? Sometimes i think you have fingers faster then Superman when it comes to posts on WBB forums.

    I can imagine you could feel each head of the quad being sore after that leg day. Walking up stairs sucks when your like that *cringes at the thought of the last time his legs felt like that*.

    I've been too busy to post the last 10 days or so. I have been training though. I had a couple major projects to do for school and a few more tests. I think I did pretty good on everything though. Also, I'm getting my own car in a couple weeks (finally). I'm also gonna be getting a second job, since I can't afford insurance otherwise. I'm applying at fed-ex next week to work 3am-8am 5 days a week loading/unloading trucks. I'll try to post later if I have time after work training from this past week.
