    "Modern" Women

    I always thought Brick's advice from years ago was a bit harsh but now I'm thinking better to fuck hot Women and not worry about relationships unless you have kids. Perhaps I'm a bit bitter tonight due to a Blu with GF today. Women seem too demanding and domineering nowadays. Thoughts

    Medium grip bench press vs Wide grip

    I was messing with incline bench press yesterday, and I noticed I'm alot stronger with medium grip than wide grip. I have small pecs (narrower shoulders) and large arms. So my triceps probably benefit more. Also I've been hearing that you can get better "leverage" with a closer grip, and it's...
