Lied about his age to sign up for the army in WWII, his ship was sunk and he swam to Italy in hostile waters, lol.

Fell out of a tree 30 ft up when he was 70, broke 27 bones and lived another 19 years.

Took him out to dinner about a month before he passed away and he was putting away beers faster than I could.

Lived an awesome life. Best man I've ever known.....RIP

I had a guy give me his two weeks notice last week because he is burnt out, he has no other job lined up, real smart in this market.

Mind you we, can't figure out why he is burnt out he is the laziest person on earth, we are allowed 5 sick days a year, so far this year he has taken 7, on top of 4 weeks disability he used (that was legitimate, though).

Personally I like the guy, he is just a perfect example of his bad this new generation is.

Yeah he's about two years out of school, I wouldn't wish this job on anyone though, so much work and stress right now with no reward.

I am envious of the guy and think he's a moron all at the same time.

IMO they want unrealistic goals in unrealistic times.

Here's your magic workout...

Squat-front or back or both. I don't give a fuuck.
Deadlift
Barbell Bench Press
Standing overhead press
Power Clean if you feel like learning it
Dips
Pull ups
Chin ups

Then add the accessory stuff in like lunges, leg press, RDL, dumbbell bench, push ups, front raises, side raises, shrugs, tri work, bi work. Do a split, do a ABA BAB split, do an upper/lower slip.

Arrange these lifts however the hell you want. Just hit them frequently and as hard as you can. If you are not failing you are not trying hard enough.

Do 3x5, 4x6, 3x12 whatever. You will make progress if you do this sh1t and stay consistent.

Lift often, eat a lot of good calories, and get a good night sleep.

Come back in 3 years and let us all know your progress.


God I wish I knew this sh1t when I was some of your guys ages.
I like this, it's simple and straightforward... So I live in the boonies and am getting tired of being scrawny (5'7" 133lbs), what equipment should I pick up for all that stuff? Do you find it used very often? My goals aren't too lofty, 145-150 and cut/healthy is all I'm looking for.

I'm figuring the consensus here is eat well (which I do), and do these things?

What's your budget?

IMO these are the perfect places to start

A squat rack which is probably around $350 new, I got one used for $100 on craigslist. Get one with a pull up bar

a barbell and weight set. Usually sold in 300lb sets. It's about $200-300 new. The barbell isn't anything great but it is good enough. Mine has lasted years with multiple drops.

A bench to slide in the squat rack to bench press.

Then you can get random things as you wish. I love my olympic rings for dips, pull ups, chin ups, ring rows etc.

Most important thing is to eat a lot. Let us know if you have more questions or hit me up on fb

You don't need anything to start.

Do bodyweight exercises right now, today!

Burpees, pushups, shuttle runs, one legged squats, etc.

For a one weight system, get some medium weight dumb bells. Plenty to expand from that, but don't let a $500 in equipment stop you from working out.
