I think a common sentiment among the more wannabe-sociopathic is “I hate people.” Typically this is uttered while in a public setting where people are conversing, happy, and participating in first-world consumerism. It is appropriate in a classroom, at a coffee shop, at the mall, at an airport, and, of course, at the gym. Usually, one of US – i.e. a failure of a human being – is the one saying it. Ostensibly, because “all the other people” are fahggaughts. In reality, we say it because we understand that we could never be as happy as the hipster feggought drinking his double-shot latte with skim milk, or the group of Korean sorority girls cooing and cawing over their fake sushi and taking group pictures over it, or the tired mom and dad dealing with the screaming children on their way to Disney World, or the otter-mode guy with a tan and his mildly attractive girlfriend enjoying a leisurely StrongLifts 5×5 deadlift workout together.
For the record – I say this at least every day. Including the days that I don’t even leave my apartment.
I ate less than 800 calories yesterday. I stayed up until 3am watching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood the night before, and woke up at 7am for work. I brought my poverty ground beef meal made with bowtie pasta and canned diced tomatoes, supposedly roasted in garlic, basil, and oregano. It was about 1/2lbs of ground beef and a half-cup of pasta. I ate some cheese crackers, too.
I woke up feeling like utter shit, a combination of carb-depletion, calorie-deprivation, and caffeine withdrawal. I literally spent most of the day eating country style beef ribs, eggs, rice, seaweed paper, and kimchee, and eventually drinking coffee at 8pm for my fucking workout when I finally felt “normal” as opposed “famished.”
I work 14 hours tomorrow, but it’s fine.
Anyways I do my bullshit workout of high pull + snatch, high pull + c+j, volume bench, and squat, and I am wearing my mis-matched shoes on purpose. I have been going to this gym for a while, like two years, and made a grand total of +15lbs on my snatch and +25lbs on my clean. Basically, it looks like I lift the same weights every fucking day. There is a trainer there who knows I am a faggot and that I should have given up on “lifting” a long time ago. He is jacked, trains people, and thinks the gesticulating that I call “bodybuilding” is a fucking joke.
Today he was training a jacked and shredded older European guy undoubtedly on TRT and I overheard their banter between sets, which at one point resulted in a pause and then the trainer saying, “Yeah. … I hate people.”
It is almost certain that he was talking about me. Who the fuck else is he going to be talking about? What else would make YOU say it if you saw a Korean faggot with stupid glasses, a “MopeilityWOD” – whatever the FUCK that is – t-shirt, and one gray shoe and one black shoe? Benching a whopping 215lbs for 9. Pausing your first rep on a set of 9 huh, yeah that’ll have carry over to your 1rm, I’m real fucking sure. Maybe you should stop paying so much attention to your “chest” and do a few calf raises when you’re done here, hot shot.
Today’s MopeWOD: The tables are turned. You think you’re cynical? You think you’re above it all? Guess fucking what? You’re somebody else’s otter-mode faggot/fat sack of shit/narcissistic aesthetic dickhead.
A few years ago I looked down on high pulls because it “ingrained the wrong motor pattern,” this idea was planted in my mind by none other than Bud Charniga, who does more to hurt weightlifting than Mark Rippetoe at this point. “Don’t press because it will make you try to press your jerks. That includes push press. A big squat isn’t necessary, just look at Szymon Kolecki or this one Russian faggot that’s completely fucking irrelevant.”
He’s got a bunch of other great fucking gems, too.
I’m sorry, but everything that Bud claims as being “detrimental to being a weightlifter” has now been blown out of the water by every Russian and Chinese weightlifter to go to an international meet.
Anyways high pulls are fucking sweet. You can get a sweet upper back pump doing snatch high pulls.
