work out

Post by Skatch » Fri Sep 10, 2004 3:05 pm

Just wanna say, I'm irish, so drinking will never stop. and I smoke while I drink, so to hell with all that crap. Meanwhile, three miles of running five days a week, weights five days a week and various amounts of dips, push-ups and crunches during my day at work. Just to prove that you don't necessarily have to give up all your fun things to prepare for the apocalypse. I mean, once the world is over run by zombies, you gotta have good stories to tell all your surviving homies.

Then today after I studied a little bit my friend and I went for a hike and went shooting. I kicked his ass at shooting pistol grip shotguns from the hip, Mad combat accuracy skills yo.

I'm sick as a dog, so all I did was skate around the neighborhood a little. And cuss at my mauser. And Jonas, your free shirts are on the way. We sent you two, because your buddy is apparently as clothing-challenged as you are. :roll: Do you have any female friends with this problem? :wink:

Maybe if you wore a shirt you might be able to climb a bit higher on those rocks. :)

Not a bad plan though. Nothing gets to feeling better faster than a little exercise.

Or a little crystal meth!

My recent attempt at hurting myself is weight lifting. About an hour a day, running on Wednesdays, five mile bike ride on the weekends if there’s no rain. Not a bad way to go about things, I think. Been cutting way down on smoking, I've only had one cigarette the entire week.

Jamoni- Niceporch and I will no doubt spend the rest of the week next to our mailboxes waiting for the shirts you sent without knowing our addresses. Unfortunately I don't know any girls that get as naked as I do on a regular basis.

Kyle- STFU!!! Just kidding, I love you like a basket of puppies. If I was wearing a shirt it would probably weigh me down and I couldn't get off the ground.

Nice pics, Jonas.


Climbing is one of my favorite physical activites. The only problem is you have to go somewhere to do it.

I really need more time in my day to head out and play in the woods or at the very least go to the in door climbing place we have downtown. Until then I'll stick with running around my park, weight lifting and doing sit-ups/push-ups in my kitchen. :(

Been waiting for my sprained ankle to heal back up. Starting tomorrow, I'll be going back to that 30/30/30 training I mentioned back in this thread.
See you around, HK. And remember folks: victory is surviving to watch another sunrise.

I figure I'd put my two cents in on this subject.

My daily routine(Sun-Sat) cansists of:
Automotive repair(my car) to tighten the forearms so my hands are like vice grips.
Consistant heavy lifting of furniture, shop tools(table saw, band saw, laithe, etc.), lumber ranging in all shapes and sizes. What can I say, my family is a bunch of pack rats.
Boat repair and maintnance. Over the last couple of years I even timed myself to see how long it takes for me to winterize my 34' wooden fishing boat. My best time was 5 1/2 hours.
And the occasional spout with my 5'8", 350 lb. brother. You would be surprised on what kind of distance and elevation you can get tossing something that size. Dont worry, it would take a Mac truck doing 50-60 mph to actually hurt him.

Now I've wanted to get back to a bench for about 5-6 years now. But its somewhat more enjoyable to get stronger doing practical and more usefull things that could help in the long run. One day, if your willing to try, go for a car ride with a friend. Find a stretch of empty road or even around your home. Put the friend behind the wheel in neutral and just start pushing. Doing this would strengthen your legs by putting more load on them, your upper body by the constant pushing, and your cardio system. Especialy if you push it around town. Just make sure theres plenty of water in the trunk to prevent dehydration.
I do most of this on a daily basis. And Slings can vouch for me on my mass, strength, and my 350 lb. bro.
Just remember, Pain lets you know your still alive.

My routine this week was:
1. crawl around in a 3 foot tall attic full of insulation for several hours each day.
2. Carry furniture that was apparently used to smuggle gold bricks up a flight of stairs that properly belongs on a naval ship.
3. Cardio consisted of yelling at my useless employees till I couldn't breathe.
I'll probably go for a run tonight.

Yup, he's one fat, nasty, bastard...

It's a shame, really. I'm friends with two of the three brothers from that family, and the fat one is doomed when the zombies come. I fractured my left foot durring a sparring session with him a few years ago. Nothing can move tha blob!

But SMASH could tear me in half if he wanted to, as long as he isn't carrying soda...

You say you were really pissed? Did you turn green, and put on purple pants? Did you sleep with Jennifer Connelly afterwards?

Yes, it was on a hill, slanted a bit upwards. And no, I'm not the hulk, I wear a red costume with a helmet and armbands.
