GG is a classic narcissist.

"characterized by a lack of empathy, a willingness to exploit others, and an inflated sense of self-importance."

Flattery towards people who admire and affirm them (narcissistic supply)
Detesting those who do not admire them (narcissistic abuse)
Using other people without considering the cost of doing so
Pretending to be more important than they really are
Bragging (subtly but persistently) and exaggerating their achievements
Claiming to be an "expert" at many things

i've known a few. there is no reasoning with this type of person. They aren't really human, your only recourse is getting as far away as possible.

Cretin: It intuits well that the closed-chain kinetic movement of the kipping pullup promotes aboreal locomotion in a way that is both a mathematical reality and ineluctable. I can only laugh as your modal domains remain overly narrow because this exercise remained anathema to your programming.

The magic of the Paleo diet and fish oil.

Someone give me the number of her fish oil supplier . . .


I honestly don't give a shit about PED use. My "GRAR DRUGS ARE BAD" attitude has lightened considerably since I first started lifting. If you're aware of the dangers do what floats your boat, and for some sports PED use is necessary to be competitive and ensure longevity. And I'm not one of those types who think it's an affront to femininity for a woman to carry around a good amount of muscle mass.

But the "We're natty you horrible drug-using fiends" attitude of HQ while touting athletes like the above as clean really burns me up. Is someone going to honestly argue that a female athlete with over fifteen years of competitive experience in power-based sports still managed to pack on that much upper-body muscle mass while remaining that lean in the space of a year?

I wonder if it has anything to do with Progenex.

The 2010 picture is in fact from 2009. Here's another from that same year.

OK, two years seems more reasonable . . . though that is still quite a bit of hypertrophy for someone not training for bodybuilding.

At least 8 torn achilles tendons in the NFL since training camps opened (~1 week): http://corner.bigblueinteractive.com...&thread=410287

By no means do I mean to vindicate CF having undertrained weekend warriors do high-rep box jumps for time (and therefore often in a depth jump style).

My guess is that the injured players didn't properly train during the lock out and so their bodies weren't ready for the full stresses of training camp...
