I was pretty indifferent to it. As a man who deadlifts barely over 400lbs, he’s certainly in no position to lead a bullshit crusade against pushing pen-and-paper by signing into a globo gym to deadlift non-calibrated rubber-coated plates, but it could be worse – he could be Jamie Lewis, who calls anyone who doesn’t max out every day on partial front squats and front squat walk outs a pussy, models in gay porn, and works in IT. Or he could be me, who’s about to go to H Mart to by Cafe du Monde French Roast with chicory coffee grinds – which ISN’T EVEN A REAL VIETNAMESE COFFEE BRAND because it cums from New Orleans – and a Vietnamese coffee press to make his own Vietnamese iced coffee.
Then I watched this next one:
Which is actually one of my globo gym pet peeves, because this isn’t a clean-and-press – it’s not even a clean-and-push-press. I used to do this, back when I still scoured t-nation for useful articles, thought Dan John was more than a high school PE teacher, and had a DE day for my bench when my 1rm was 215lbs. It’s invariably done for like, sets of 5 by some fahggaught with 95lbs, often times as quickly as possible as though cycling through reps faster is equivalent to doing the movement faster and thus “makes you more explosive.”
Haven’t been to a globo gym in like 5 months but I still have a membership for some bullshit imagined emergency.
I can’t tell if I like Urban Primalist or not. Some of his stuff almost is okay. Also, whenever he says, “Let me tell you about a man and his beloved,” it hints at a past that he once had, of a lady who once loved him, of a secret, fragile happiness they once shared, and how it was utterly destroyed. No attempts at reconciliation have been made. And he hasn’t been the same since, in fact, he is who he is today because of her. Does he hope that one day she will notice? That he is a different man now, stronger, with a fire that burns for her still? Or has he resigned himself to being without her, just a story of what they once had. Do you wanna know how I got these scars?
He is probably just talking about how much he lives lifting because it’s primal. BRB doing deadlifts in vibrams.
