1. This is a long rant posted in a T-nation article. I find it very inspiring. However, I find it makes me not want to give out any advice, because it reminds me that most people don't have what it takes to be like us.

    kind of conceited but good. I was listening to this song while reading it so the whole vibe was enhanced a bit.

    Buying Biotest supplements makes you cool and manly.

    I'm sorry but that was just pathetic, more and more of TC's posts come across as him parading his overblown ego across his website to show off how manly he thinks he is. "Look at me, I train so hard and think I'm better than everyone", no, shut the fuck up and quit giving a shit about the general population and their opinions on lifting.

    His posts are kinda paradoxical with T nation itself? The goal of t nation (on the whole), aside from sellin biotest supps, is to make peopel 'look' better. So if you already look better, (through working out etc) why dyou need to write a rant like that basically says 'yes I look better, it's not because of my gym time, but this this, this, this and this?' I mean some of the points are good (and i know it's because he's offended that people say oh you're in the gym all the time, i could do that, blah blah), like about knowing how your body works and how to get the best out of it, but most of it is jus irrelevent and unrelated rambling; the kinda thing that typifies those who do weights and are interested in weights and working out and looking big AS meatheads. (Which is exactly the kinda stereotype peopel want to move away from?) I swear it comes across that he's not only bigger, but ALSO cleverer, when the truth is knowledge can be learnt, anything anyone is 'good' at is learned from elsewhere, no one is born and at whatever age decides they like weightlifting and starts doing clean and jerks with perfect form at HYYYYYYYYYYYOOOGE weightages lol.

    And I'd fuckin love to him drain 3 pointers all day or chip from the rough liek tiger woods lol, what a retarded comment that was. If he had that natural talent level he wouldn't be writing trumped up articles about nothing for t nation.

    Obviously no non lifter would really read the site, but if they read that article, wouldn't they just think 'ha, fuckin stupid meathead'. I genreally find TC's stuff entertaining, on the random topics and rambles he has, but on this article it's just plain annoying, he writes with arrogance and fills the stereotype of bodybuilders being vain and narcisstic as well as stupid. I thort one of the major poitns of t nation was looking better and therefore NOT worrying about what the other lifestyle people think ?

    I see the point, but that is quite a bit of chest beating.

  15. Have you ever posted in the "personal idiot's" thread? I'm sorry but the general population in the gym is a bunch of fucking clowns. It sickens me when I have my workouts degraded because some shmuck has a bug up his ass, and decides to do laying down pull-ups in the only power rack in a huge fucking gym.

    I have nothing against serious bodybuilders but, I've grown a large amount of discontent towards the casual lifter. My brother manages a franchise gym, or as I like to call it: X-sport clown university. At his gym, they sell memberships and personal training as much as possible, without ever worrying about the capacity status. Why do the not care about the capacity? Because 85% of their member are in an inactive status.

    The casual lifter knows nothing of living the lifestyle, and uses every excuse in the book to justify their pathetic failure. My personal favorite is: "If I was on juice, I could do that too". Its a fucking joke.

    True.

    But for every 20 tales of "HUR, curls in teh squat rack" theres a diamond of a story in there.

    I know it gets frustrating to be asked questions about lifting all the time when people don't want to hear the answers, but articles like this turn me against muscle heads. When some iron monkey starts comparing himself to some kind of warrior, I have to fight the arrogant urge to show him that he doesn't know shit.

    Keith Wassung's posts are examples of how a lifter should be. He comes across as a serious bad ass, but never beats his own chest.

    Agree. I think that those of us, including myself, that have distaste for that article is because of the way that it was written and not because of the point that it was supposed to deliver.

    TC wants us to believe that his ego stroking is to support his main point against casual lifters. In reality, that isn't his main point at all. His main point was to tell us all how manly he is and how big of a badass he is. Being pissed off at casual lifters was secondary.

    Rockstar, I feel your pain, especially when those idiots do things that affect our workouts. Unfortunately, that is the price you pay when you decide to train at a commercial gym. I have to go through the same shit and ya, it frustrates me. I could train at home or look for another gym but I don't due to a combination of cash and convenience. So I deal with the curl monkeys and forge on.

    EDIT: Shit Grammar.
