    I noticed this online and it had me in stitches.

    Wit and Wisdom of Mark Rippetoe

    My favorite was the following:

    And no, you don't excrete excess calories, because evolution didn't see fit to exterminate the species in this way. If that happened, fat people would be in zoos where they belong since they'd be quite rare.

    Every time I read that it gets me.

    I don't read around the web much, because I'm old and busy, and just haven't got time. If I'm on the Internet, I'd rather be looking at porn.

    That was always my fav lol

    "People at the Division One and pro level rarely know what the hell they are doing, their athletes are pre-sorted".

    Great quote. Just right for all the people that think the trainers of elite fighters can`t be wrong.

    I like these

    On drinking not 1, but 2 gallons of milk/day:

    But you would be shitting primarily cheese. Are you ready for this?



    Rip: You need to drink one gallon of full fat milk everyday. It's almost mandatory.

    Somebody from audience: I'm lactose intolerant, could I substitute yogurt for milk?

    Rip: Gallon of yogurt.

    "Now I also know that you're supposed to 'listen to your body', but my brain says 'don't be a pussy, and just lift the fucking weights', and that's just what I do."

    LOL.

    To this day I still haven't figured out what "listening to your body" fucking means.

    This one's hilarious:
