Merry Christmas, Bob- WOW


#1

That has to be the single best motivational article I have EVER come across in all my years of reading weight training articles.

I am 31 , been training 10+ years on and off every year , have not been a solid year straight since probably 25 yrs old. I have about 30 extra pounds , all the in gut,handles area- 6'2" 240 lbs. This article has changed my perspective on a lot things.

I joined a nice gym 3 miles from house, great equipment , great hours etc. I am extremely excited about changing my lifestyle and training habits.

This is it- SHUT UP AND TRAIN, no more weakness - I OVERCOME!!!

Yeah, one of my all time favorite motivational pieces. I read it whenever my I find myself slacking or second-guessing.

Good luck on your goals.


#3

Yeah that was a great article. Does anyone have any other favorite motivational articles from T-Mag?


#4

Any post from TC about women.

After using all of his dating tips, I am now prepared for having 40 orgasms via masturbation within a 24 hour period and have that fact be placed into the World Guiness Book of Records.

fat panda,

i'm sad to say i already did that. i'm not even kidding. i did it my senior year in high school. i had the school record. sadly people thought i was a big pervert because of it. i was just horny and took care of things myself instead of harassing girls.


#9

oh, and for the record, the previous record for my school was also held by me, which was 20. i did that in 10th grade. i think the next closest guy was like 12. what a pussy. this dude i knew said he knew a kid that did it 26. i own.

Damn morg, way to steal away my fire.

Fine, I will have to do 40 orgasms caused by masturbation within a 12 hour period!.... You fired me up moreso than "Merry Christmas, Bob" could ever hope to do.

I need to work on my lactate acid tolerance for my right fore arm though :frowning:

Thanks for this thread. I reread it and then printed it out. I love that article. I'm sure my wife will get a kick out of it too. She has the same attitude about fat slobs I do.

"Got any tips?"sip

Fucking hilarious!


#12

yes, that will be an issue. as to my record...i hope you beat it. while it's fun to have the record, it also sucks in a way.

funny story. that day i made that record, i went to bed with 30 under my belt. i was laying in bed thinking "wow, 30. that's like, awesome or something. wait till i tell everyone." and while i was trying to fall asleep, i got the urge again, and got this boner (which was a bit sore at this point). and i had to get out of bed and i busted out 10 in a row. the funny thing was that you'd think after 30 you'd be shooting blanks. let's just say i had to clean up because i wasn't expecting that. lol. the point is, don't give up on your dreams and goals! you can achieve them! i'm living proof!
