I bought my power rack and barbells 4 years ago from Amazon. From what I hear itโ€™s really tough to come by this stuff right now, or itโ€™s really damn expensive. I wish I could help you out. Iโ€™m a huge advocate for diet and strength training with barbells.

People donโ€™t appreciate why the system is the way it is. The blue and grey areas have profoundly different cultures and different values. A political union where one culture has a perpetual built-in electoral advantage over the other isnโ€™t stable over the long term.

This was not 10-12% bf. I didnโ€™t want to cut any longer this round and Iโ€™ll revisit in the spring. Iโ€™m waiting on my coachโ€™s assessment but my estimate is that this is likely about 13-14%. I still have about 6-7 lbs to lose to cut down to shreds at 10-11% around 160 lbs.

Pictures will follow this. The heavy pics were taken in mid March at 194lbs. The lean pics were taken this morning at 167lbs. Total weight loss in the 31-wk time period was 27lbs for an average of .87lbs/wk. The period included a 2-wk diet break so actual weight loss was faster.

Ok for those of you who follow my account and have interest, Iโ€™m publishing the results of my 7-month cut today. Tomorrow Iโ€™m going on a 2-week diet break and then a few months of slow bulk. Iโ€™ll return to cutting again in the spring and take it to shreds in hopefully 12-16 wks.

This (and its variants) is probably the best practical advice that one can ever get in life. Choose the people you have in your inner circle and regularly interact with in life very judiciously. Maintain the highest possible standards for yourself and your associates.

Strictly speaking they are correct. Numbers are a rational creation of human consciousness and do not exist unless you believe in realism, platonic or mathematical. However the phenomena they model do exist. And mathematical models are spectacularly successful. Thatโ€™s real.

This is exactly right. The states exist in a Federalist arrangement for a reason, even if we have lost historical perspective as to why that is desirable.

I canโ€™t speak for Alexander and can only speak for myself. My objection to free anything is that it by socializing the costs in a way that reduces the risks of failure on the individual, the psychology of less โ€œskin in the gameโ€ creates perverse incentives. Economics 101 really.

Itโ€™s like heโ€™s running to be the national daddy. No thanks Joe. I already have a father and so do my kids. Go pound sand. That goes for Trump and any other politician who think that way as well. Itโ€™s goddamn insulting.

Yeah isnโ€™t this a remarkable phrasing? Itโ€™s like he wants to be our goddamn daddy. No need Joe. Iโ€™m good. Iโ€™ve already got a daddy Iโ€™m happy with and so do my kids.

That said, I do believe weโ€™re all equal in terms of dignity and the moral right to be free from violence, but thatโ€™s pretty much all.

I labeled myself โ€œRightโ€ but in my understanding of what that means. Iโ€™m not religious nor am I doctrinaire hierarchical. Basically to me being right means that equality isnโ€™t as much of a social priority as freedom is.

Same for me except my wife doesnโ€™t know how to drive one. So Iโ€™m stuck buying automatics now. Manual transmission cars are so much more fun to drive though.
