  1. It will be awesome to watch him prove the haters wrong (assuming he sticks with it).

  5. Pretty cool article: http://www.buzzfeed.com/jtes/the-strongest-woman-in-america-lives-in-poverty
  6. That looks yummy and is pretty nutritious. You could benefit from adding some fresh greens (collard, kale, mustard, turnip, spinach, etc) and some healthy fats (avocado, nuts, seeds, olives, coconut, etc) to your diet. LOL Lettuce isn't the only green I eat. I vary it up quite a bit on the greens, just happened to be a lettuce day. I do eat avos, nuts and seeds occasionally, maybe 1-2x/week.
  7. Check out http://foodnsport.com/faq.php Today I'm eating 30 bananas 2 heads of lettuce 6 ataulfo mangoes 2 tomatoes 1 cucumber fistful of blueberries
  8. Hey man will you be at the Scott Jurek thing on Monday? Bunch of folks from VRA will be there.
  9. Been to Bone Breaker Barbell a couple times since I last posted here. I pulled 269 x 2 this past weekend (which was 7th set of the day) I haven't posted this here yet but my wife and I split up 3 months ago. Motivation to workout is about 1/10th of what it used to be. I was undereating for a while (2500-3000 cals/day vs. usual 3500-3600) and lost some weight. I was down to 155 at my skinniest, now back up to 158. I am slowly building back my exercise habit. It's been tough. I have been 100% 80/10/10 for 129 days now. At day 150 I'm going to take a break, have some rice, maybe some gluten-free/soy-free vegan pizza, who knows. I really want to have some of those foods again. However, I have a feeling that after 5 months raw, my body is going to rebel. So I may be back on 100% raw again pretty quickly. It will be a fun experiment
  10. I can probably call in a favor with my chiropractor and get him to work on you. Let me know if you're interested. Otherwise, hopefully Mike can fix you up.
  11. Glad you are wanting to set records on Saturday. I'll be bringing my video camera
  12. oh, I am in dude, without a doubt. See ya Saturday.
  13. Had a lifting session with Big Bald Mike yesterday. He has his own heavy-metal Metroflex-style gym in his garage. We had a blast tossing around the iron yesterday. I've never really done much in the way of max press on deadlifts so it was fun to go for new records.
  14. Robert, I'm probably gonna head down to Big Mike's on Saturday. You interested?
  15. He already eats 6,000 calories a day. It would be stupid for him to get bigger. His body has adapted to ultrarunning just like bodybuilders bodies have adapted to weightlifting.
  16. We are starting a vegan running group in Austin, and right now it's mostly women. Info is here: http://veganaustin.org/event.php?id=516
  17. Hey guys either of you down for a night or weekend session on the bars at Clark Field by UT? Hit me up.
  18. Ran Tough Mudder last weekend in my VBB shirt. Check out this pic with the abs underneath. Yeah buddy! Not sure what I want to do now. With 2 half marathons and 2 tough mudders under my belt already in 2012 I need something new to shoot for. I've worked out pretty much every day this week, but the workouts have been kind of lackadaisical. I don't really have a lot of motivation now that I've hit all my goals. I guess I need new goals. Hmmmmm.
  19. That's awesome. Not sure how much you you talk with your parents, but it will kind of give him an extra way to be close with his daughter that I think may keep him going.
  20. For all the people who say you can't get strong on 80/10/10. Enjoy.
  21. Personally I agree with the article and don't eat anything on the list. But I also degree that Mercola is a total huckster and don't trust anything from funded by the WAPF.
  22. Do you have health insurance? I know some good Active Release people who can take care of your wrist before it gets any worse.
