Got the Bug Again, Joined a Hardcore Gym


So after 6 months of doing a TBT routine and for some god-forsaken reason of trying to convince myself that getting big and strong isn't that important to me, I got the bug again!

So I'm joining Shawna Mendelson's hardcore gym in Long Island. It's got everything: bands, chains, a GHR, great benches, etc.

What the fuck was I thinking? I've been into this shit since 16 years old in 1996. Maybe I was just burnt out. I even have some interviews for part-time jobs personal training.

I think my old job burnt me the hell out mentally as the place was in absolute shambles and actually got shut down.


You're a flesh eating pyschopath at heart. It was only a matter of time.


Ya what happened to your police mug shot in a leather killer mask?


I think hes laying low for a while after, well ya kno...


I got the same damn bug. I'm starting Poliquin's 1-6 routine next week. I'm sick of total bodies and higher reps. Time to lift some really heavy shit.


This is an amazing human experience in my mind.

I'm at that point with my career, but I keep getting up in the morning, keep grinding away. Only because I know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I actually enjoy what I do deep down.

I think people bounce back if it is something they enjoy/love, but if it wasn't meant for you, you wouldn't come back. It's life's little way of showing you if you made a mistake or not.

Congrats man on feeling better.
