I Laughed Myself Into a Headache



You laughed yourself into a headache at......what, exactly?


Probably the 2 minute long psyche up routine


Do you have sound enabled?


Yeah, what's so funny Bro-ski? I had the sound turned on and it wasn't really funny at all. I suppose his little pre-set ritual is a bit odd, but that's pretty much what I look like when I lift: focused, calm, kinda stalking around the squat rack like a lion slowly patrolling the plains. What do you look like when you lift? Shit, I'll bet you send a bunch of texts between each set........



What are we missing here?


Shit's badass, just like his x-ray specs and ripped up sweatshirt.




This is why I read comments before I watch a video in OP.



Dinosaur training brah!


stupid yes, not funny though


SO funny! LOL

I mean who the fuck still has paneling on their walls! LOL


Does he have downs? (srs).


He's still renovating his basement...and his clothing style.


No, I get it! It's funny cause he's got the pins set at the bottom, and he starts there, right? Right?



The grunts were slightly humourous, but he's still stronger than me so meh.

Anyone know the reasoning behind starting in the bottom postion?


I know. He's using a deadlift bar to squat. What an idiot!!!!!

Yeah, those glasses aren't too pretty and squatting heavy can easily make your face look a little weird. Who gives a fuck? The dude is pretty strong, why make fun of him? It's not every fitness author who can walk the walk.

It eliminates the stretch-shortening cycle aka stretch reflex aka myotetanic stretch reflex and makes the lift harder/builds strength in the hole.


Taken from his website:

"-Have you had it up to here with weight training books written by people who don't know a barbell from a bagel or a dumbbell from doughnut and who think a power clean is a new kind of laundry detergent?

-Will you commit cold blooded murder if you see another weight training book for toners, shapers, pumpers and pencil necks?"


LOL I giggled myself into a half stroke!


I'll ask, can the OP do that? Video please.
