Lidia Valentín is definitely one of my favorite female lifters. Fantastic legs too, holy shit.
Also, my progress on the 5/3/1 since starting it in February has been solid so far, might just be able to hit a three-plate squat within the next couple months if it keeps up.
Mistakes with “offending” and “your” aside, this is an image I found (Thanks, whatever anon made this) that I really like.
A lot of people like to say that only the inside matters, but the way you take care of yourself and present yourself speaks volumes as to the kind of person you really are inside.
Remember kids, both the inside AND the outside matter.
Frank Zane and Steve Reeves were aesthetic as fuck. They aren’t in line with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s level of fame, but they deserve just as much respect.
There’s an interesting difference between men and women when it comes to their role models, idols, etc that they perceive as ideal.
When a man sees an ideal male, he aspires to be like him, to be as well-liked, successful, and/or intelligent as he is.
When a woman sees an ideal female, she goes to Tumblr and complains about how that’s not an actual ideal, or how it’s not what men want.
These men climb the mountain to reach the top; the women complain that there is a mountain top, and declare wherever they are to be the new top.
Do you have a favorite regular at your gym?
Several, actually. I smile creepily to myself and quietly mutter “gym girlfriend” whenever I see them.
So while I was cruising along with Senran Kagura, I got Skullgirls off Steam for $9.99 due to the sale this past weekend. I got this game for the 360 back when it came out, but because I was already starting to ditch the 360 then, I never really played much of this game; now that it’s on PC, though, I’m finally getting back into it. I’m thinking of sticking with Ms. Fortune as my main.
Lemme tell you, fighting games are glorious, particularly the competitive aspects. I feel like games such as fighters, shooters, and even Pokemon are just so much better in general when you play them competitively because of the extraordinary amount of depth that you’re exposed to.
In the meantime, while I try to get better at fighting games, I try to lift myself out of DYEL mode. Never being satisfied is a double-edged sword: it truly helps you strive to improve, but you’re never really happy with where you are. I like it, in a way.
