  1. I hate hearing you guys talk about totals, and realise you guys have anywhere from 25- 75 pounds on me. Why am I so small? Haha. I think I have a good today at 1250+/- and then you guys are like: "I do 1500 with my eyes closed"

    That's a time thing, buddy. You'll get there. My "total" was 1225 last year about this time. As you specialize more in the power lifts, your numbers will jump.

    At my weight, progress has slowed down quite a bit. Sadly I am not built like most of you guys. But I know what you mean. I mean technically I couldn't lift at all about a year ago thanks to a nice spine injury...

    That's more about food. And this is why we have weight classes in PLing. I'll probably never compete at 308, or have an elite SHW total, but I'm only competing against people approximately my size.

    Well technically, I'm only competing against myself. You get what I mean.

  5. That total ain't bad for your size at all man. What matters is that it's your best.

    Was gonna hit up some truck pulls and core work today on duty but second I changed out my crew had to launch for some broken down boat.

    PT test in the AM (1.5 run) then core work in the evening most likely.

    It's not about food though, I eat plenty. I can get fatter but I won't get any stronger (not proportionally at least). I'm happy at the BF I am at now, I like to stay quick and conditioned, you know how important that is for you as a strongman. I know what you mean, I just think we all wish we were 5 inches taller and the same proportions... lol. Starting at 5 8 and a skinny frame with tiny hands and feet isn't ideal for a PL but I am making it work slowly. And yes, I view it as competing against myself. Much more rewarding IMO than beating some random guy that weighs the same as you. I blow pretty much everyone I know my weight out of the water.

    I know man, but you know what I mean. I wish I had the frame/build I see so many guys with, yet they are lazy and do nothing. It's frustrating. No I know my lifts are bad, just frustrating that I am just now getting back to the maxes I was hitting 2 years ago. I know a lot of progress was lost.

    I wasn't trying to come off whiney when I said that, more just joking around because you guys are all beasts and I'm that skinny guy who can lift a little bit! haha.

    Right now I'm actually training at Fitness 19. I would like to switch to the Athletic Club when my wife gets a job and we've got a little more money coming in.

    If its longer than a 30 second sprint, I consider it long distance.

    Don't you mean longer than a 30 second walk? When I was flipping the tire the other day, the kid at the desk brought out a big sledge.

    "Got you this if you wanted to hit the tire."

    "...nope."

    I must look like a Crossfitter.

  19. It was by weight. I'll look around around later man. Get the one with the white trim. The other one had fairly longer legs.

  20. The metal singlet on EliteFTS has a size chart. It is pretty much the same price and looks like HOP is out of my size if it is the same. Thanks anyways brochacho.

    EDIT: NM a back order message came up. ****!

  21. I ordered a size smaller than the Metal singlet chart said and I may just be too skinny or lean but it was still loose around the belly. Fit was a little weird but it was the right length.

    They are out of XL which is what size it said I should be. I never thought getting a singlet would be a pain in the ass. I thought when it wedges would be lol

  27. Are you ever going to chase a BG 1.5 miles? No. You're going to shoot him in his stupid terrorist face.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  28. I was excited they found that ******* on a boat, considering I run response boats in the local area. Then I found out it was in a shed.

    The only running I do is from the building and 50 yards to the boats..
