Ok, I am really effin’ torn right at the moment. I’m sitting at work and trying to decide if writing this is a good idea or not. The real answer is probably “or not”, but for the first time in a long time, my music library has started talking to me again. For you, that means I’ve got a lot of badassery (opposite of douchebaggery) flowing through me right now. Which leads me to today’s post. Am I getting soft?
If you recall, most of my early stuff (as in, just a year ago) was a lot of ranting. I was really sick of the way I viewed the fitness industry. Well, thanks to this website, I signed up for Twitter. In doing so, I have “met” a lot of like minded people. I see that there is a huge population of people that really do “get it”. We are still enormously outnumbered, but day by day, people are figuring it out. The fact that you are reading this gives me hope that I have at least done my part in transforming some of you from the mindless masses that cruise through commercial gyms with no hopes of knowing what the fuck is going on.
But back to my point, I was reading through my earlier posts and things were a lot more comical than they are now. They are chalk full of good information, but I definitely focused more on trying to entertain you. I read my last several posts, and while they still have some one-liners in them, they seem to be skewed much more to the informative side rather than entertaining. Does that bother anyone else? I mean, I like to think that I’ve built this following on NOT being politically correct, NOT afraid of offending anyone, and NOT really giving a shit what you all think about me as a person.
So, what do you guys think? Do you like this little “mini-evolution” I’ve gone through, or should I go back to being a dick? I’ll leave it up to you. Let me know down in the comments.
Don’t Miss Your Chance
I was stuck in Corporate America for 9 years. I was miserable.
Then I took control.
You can too, and it starts right here.
Girls tend to digg dicks 😉
Hey, is this your first comment? More importantly, is that an invitation?
Ha ha yeah, my friend Jill told me about this site. She is trying to get me to work out more seriously and get away from Lifetime fitness etc. BTW I totally love the fit shoes. hehe! But in all reality from the type of advice you give on this site, its totally not for me. I’m not into body building, I just want to be fit, and stay fit for life. And of course that is an invite! 😉
I’m sorry you feel that this is a “bodybuilding” website. If anything, it is a strength training/make you look good naked website. I highly suggest you read through the 2 “Hey Chics…” posts and browse through my nutrition posts. The nutrition is based off things for “everyday” people. Not competitors.
The 2 “Hey Chics…” posts were written for women just like you. Just because I recommend things like lift heavy and do HIIT cardio, doesn’t mean “it’s not for you”. It means you’ve never experienced it. Just read all the comments I got from women that have had success doing the things I suggest.
So, I hope you read those and stick around. If anything else, I hope you’ll be entertained. You may have given me an idea for my next post. 😉
Will do! And I already look good naked! But I’ll continue to read anyway
Well, I can’t say what I’m really thinking so I guess I’ll just have to take your word for it.
Stay true to the fire that burns within. You didn’t become a literary idol of mine by writing soft “oprah style” informative columns…any prissy, conservative pussy can do that. Keep Rollin with your own style and let that rage out son, it’s healthy, better for you, better for us.
well, i’m slightly torn here and there…
you def gotta have fun man… iv read so many fitness sites that was so.. boring and flat and was like a computer was talking to me…
i know your real focus is going after people who have some fitness level and want to make them better.
some people need a better idea of where to begin… its tough because everyone already does that, i just don’t think they do it very good…
honestly i believe the problem is… when you know so much about a topic, its easy to miss some basic stuff (i experience this with animals) its pretty unbelievable what some people don’t know.
i think your doing a good job, and its going to take time to find the right balance of who you are, and what works…
keep working hard bro.
Hey any advice on how to get the gf motivated to drop a few?
@Justin and Derrick
Thanks, brahs. I think it’s time to get back to what got me here.
I got your email. This isn’t my full time job so I’ll answer your email tonight hopefully. Hang in there. P.S. You’ve got some balls if she’s commented on here and you’re asking publicly. Respect.
I dont get how that takes balls? Im sorry you felt as if I didnt respect your time frame and or other job. I just didnt know if you got my email or not. There was no confirmation. My apologies. Just the holidays are coming up and we we all know what that means…..
Just saw your poster! What do you think of kettleball training! And do you provide that service?
I’m glad you saw the poster. I think that’s great considering neither Mike nor myself put it up. We appreciate the free advertising but we don’t know who to thank! Hahaha!
Unfortunately, since I’m just starting out, I don’t have any KB’s but Mike is RKC certified and loves KB training. You should definitely drop him a line! His website is: http://www.extremehumanperformance.com
His email is: michaeltnelson at yahoo dot com (using the regular symbols of course; gotta keep ourselves spam free you know)
Thanks for the comment and I hope you decide to stick around here!
