So one of my really good buds who as actually been lifting way longer than I have, has proven to me after our last conversation about lifting that he is a complete retard. We go to separate gyms and for some reason just don’t seem to talk iron much. So last night we are sitting at the bar having a few and he starts going on about how great arginine is and how it makes his dick hard and makes his arms “pump really bad”.
So I say something to the effect that the placebo effect is really amazing. Trying to back himself up he says something to the effect of: “Well, yeah but if you use it with creatine, which has like 4 amino acids, it REALLY WORKS GOOD!!!”. At this point I smashed my Leinie’s Lite over my own head. Now he starts listing off the amino acids supposedly in creatine which are: glutamine and 3 other things that are not oven close to the names of any amino acid I know of.
Not wanting to sound like an arrogant know-it-all prick I just say: “Well, you could just consume complete proteins and get them all.” He looks at me like I’m on crack and just says: “Yeah.” After that we started to discuss workout programs which was about on par with his nutritional know-how (but he does squat, I’m curious to see his form though…)
He tells me how he was curling 45lb dbs and how proud he was of it. At this point I think I just stopped listening to him and concentrated on the bartenders breasts and how her baby-doll shirt would ride up just enough when she reached up for a bottle of booze on the shelf and you could catch a glimpse of her amazing tummy with belly ring that was begging me to pull out with my tongue, but that could have been the beer talking.
So anyway, what do I tell this guy? The scary thing is that he’s joining my gym so we can lift together(oh joy), and I’m afraid he is going to kill himself trying to impress me. Should I just smack him upside the head with a 45 or what?
