Probably won't be long until tinned water.

San Pellegrino are already doing it.

Get a thermos flask. Metal one. Use this to drink your hot beverage out of.

The Savage is unable to refute this argument, as even The Savage cannot perform the mental gymnastics required to dance his way out of a maze of his own wrongdoing, without fear of being caught in his homespun web of lies at a later date.

"I'll explain the reality to anyone reading this who thinks Becca is some extreme genetic freak an that's what her results come from. Firstly ive trained with and been around plenty of freaks so I know the difference and what top class genetics are."


"I can sort of understand this thinking with Becca as honestly I thought she was more of a freak when I first met her and she is definitely a freak in the sense that she is freaky tall and big frame wise."

So, you agree, she is a freak in terms of height, mass and size. Especially on - what was it, 1600 calories a day - and she is clearly in the top 1% of size female wise.

"She also doesn't move around like she weighs what she weighs"

So she is not only freakishly big - but also freakishly athletic for her size. That's a freak right there.

"Probably due to her monster calf's."

That's not how it works. but anyway.

"Natural strength though, which obviously is really important here, it's only her calf's that are naturally strong, and that's probably just because they natural hold so much muscle (but loads of people get this)."

Didn't she squat 200kg prior to meeting you? Also top 1% of all females. Freaky, hey?

"The real top genetic freak athletes are born strong, often have muscular or ripped physiques without ever picking up a weight, respond awesome to training, hardly ever get sore, recover really quick etc thats definitely not everyone that she competes against, not at all (but obviously they take gear so that changes things), the genetics are still nowhere near the men's but it comes from hard hard graft and doing the right things consistently over long periods of time, saying genetics is just a cop out."

Schwarzenegger was weak as a kitten when he started lifting. He used his freaky genetics and married it to hard graft. Voila: the Arnie we all know.
The idea that everyone who is a successful strength athlete is Ed Coan, or Andy Bolton, - and put up massive numbers in the first six months of lifting - is simply not true. Most of them graft for it.
Superheavy strength athletes DON'T tend to have muscly/ripped physiques. They're fat, strong and heavy.

I will concur that mentally and emotionally you probably have a positive effect on her.

However, the issue is that because you are so close to her - and have a long and varied history of denying the bleeding obvious (including denying the laws of thermodynamics) - I don';t feel you are able to objectively view any negative effects that your training might have on this freakish athlete.

Mind you, the good thing about freaks, is that they can often out-perform their diet (1,600 calories) and poor/silly training. But even the best can't consistently out train their recovery.

And that is, essentially, linked to their training programming. And the buck stops with whoever does - or does not - do their programming.

Wanted to do car deadlifts.

Warmed up with Farmers Handle pick-ups: everything felt heavy from 35kg onwards.

Got to the car deadlift - and it took three goes to lift it once. FELT AWFUL!!!


Did squats instead.


Paused Cambered Bar Box Squats:

90kg + Light Bands - 2 x 8 sets.

DOH Axle Deadlifts:

165kg - PR. Lord knows where that came from?

Went up so quickly, I tried 175kg: Broke the floor - but nothing after that.

Grin Grin

Weighted Hangs

It was quick - but felt like I had done something.

I for one, as someone who voted remain, have had about enough this whole debacle.

Especially the constant begging for another vote: I like how the reasons for another vote have changed from "You're a stupid racist, who didn't know what they were voting for", to "It's too small a majority", to "It's taken too long". Still want the same thing, just changing tac to find an argument that fits.

Roll on the end of it all.

If we do run out of food, petrol and medicine, it'll be like living in the old days - which many Brexiteers will love - and the constant threat of shortages will allow my fellow Remainers to carry on whinging ad infinitum.

Everyone is happy. Sort of.
