If you’re a guy – man, boy, tough guy… anything with a dick, your girl is tougher than you. Your wife, your girlfriend, your fuck buddy… whatever else. She’s tougher than you. Way tougher. Not just yours, but all of them. Lets start this off by saying that I’m addressing everyone that trains. Not those that sit on their ass but those that train. Now that we’ve made that clear, everyone else can turn away. Those that train, keep on reading.
How do I know? Because I’m tougher than you. I’m also tougher than the 27 other fighters I beat. I’m especially tougher than the 21 of those that I sat on their ass. Each one of those 27 were tougher than you too. So that pretty much puts me near the top of the food chain – as far as things with a penis go. My wife? She’s tougher than me, WAY tougher than me. She’s tougher mentally and she’s tougher physically. I’m not talking about unimportant things like how much weight she can lift and how hard she can punch me back. I’m talking about being able to push past whatever limit we think we have, as guys. Every single woman who TRAINS with me is tougher than any other man I know. They’re tougher than you are too. What makes that even more badass is that they know it. They may not flaunt it. I think many of them are content to let us go on and on about what ass kickers we are and how hard we train and to what extreme we THINK we push ourselves to. And we may very well do that. Doesn’t matter, women go on harder and longer when the things we’ve been taught to recognize as signs to stop, occur. Women are tougher because they know that they’re not supposed to be. They’re tougher because we’re too busy trying to compete with other guys that we seldom acknowledge what they’ve been able to do and they’re tougher because they’re not so hell-bent on trying to prove to everyone how tough they really are.
I guess you could sort of say that you’re your bitches bitch. But I’m sure that being able to bench press more weight is of the utmost importance to some of you.
I just read a short article / advertisement, can’t tell which it was – probably paid to have it look like an article. Anyway, they were trying to push the whole “10 minutes is all you need to get a great WORKOUT in”. I use WORKOUT lightly because, as any of you that TRAIN with me know, there’s a HUGE difference between working out and training. Most people workout. They all need to train. Now that I’ve declared my differentiation between the two, know that the person that wrote the 10 minute training article uses them interchangeably. So… If you want to make progress, you do a couple of things. These things don’t really matter in terms of how exactly you fill them in. This will make sense in a moment. One, you do things that feel awkward. Awkward can mean off-balance, uncomfortable or whatever word you choose to use. Just as long as it’s not comfortable. The other is that you have to train HARD. You can train hard in 10 minutes. You can get your heart rate up, really fucking high, in 10 minutes. You can work up a sweat, maybe, in 10 minutes. You can’t train in 10 minutes. The only time your training session should end in 10 minutes is if you pass our / vomit or both. I believe in using some HIIT (high intensity short duration) routines now and then. But even those routines should never be finished in 20-30 minutes, and that’s probably too soon. These morons that push the whole get fit in record time by taking shortcut bullshit are either completely stupid or they’re lying to you because they think that you’re completely stupid. The people who buy into this crap are usually people who aren’t able to see the difference between working out and training. If they did, they wouldn’t give 10 seconds, let alone 10 minutes, of their time to these crooks. If you want to train, know it’s going to suck. If you want to train, know you won’t like it. If you’re going to train, know that you might be alone because if you’re going to train, most of your friends will tell you you’re working too hard. You need new friends.
University of Alabama spends two hours in their gym training, immediately after every single game. On away games, they fly home and go straight to their strength and conditioning facility. They rate their training sessions 1 – 5, 5 being the most intense. Most programs, actually all that I can think of, start at 1 and progressively get tougher during the week. Alabama does their 5 following their game. Why? To prove that they can. To prove to themselves that they can keep going even when they think they can’t. Does it work? 3 national championships in the last 5 years and one of the best strength and conditioning programs in the country? I’d say that it sort of works. Tell me again how you’re too tired to train at 5:30 am? Does it suck, bet your ass it does. But aside from the actual fitness, you get a mental edge just by knowing that your friends are all still in bed while you’re up kicking the shit out of yourself for a better life. That’s what makes you better than them. Yes, better than them. Don’t be shy about it. Everyone can do it, it’s a choice. If you choose to suffer for what you want, you’re stronger and better than those that refuse to. Those are the people that win. Not just in sports but in everything.
