RE: Atheists who work out
You know what's odd? It's not fun to go to the gym and the work outs are boring and repetitive and just... fucking hate them. But I feel so good after the workout...

I hear that. That's why I'm really glad to have the treadmill at home.

I'm not fond of the gym either. Makes me feel like a hamster. I prefer the ropes, rings, and sandbags approach.

What do you think are the minimal number of exercises you need to stimulate the main muscle groups (pragmatically - ass, thighs, back, shoulders and core - natural uses of triceps, biceps, pecs are rarer to me)? I think you can get away with just deadlifts. ... Have I already asked you this? Feels like I already asked you this.

I don't think it matters girly, Yak herder is happy to tell us again. When I asked him I didn't get specific enough so go for it.

If you're looking for a single, comprehensive lift, a deadlift to military overhead press would cover a lot.

If you want to avoid the gym, pushups and squats would hit almost everyone important.

Or, for the sake of simplicity, the Olympic snatch.

3 mile run today, nothing too hard. I was going to do a CF workout at the gym, but just didn't happen. Happy Saturday to all! Heart

Be true to yourself. Heart

RE: Atheists who work out
cool, go you runners!!
I did a dumb thing and wore the wrong socks in my boots Saturday, while building fence. I have a big blister-like formation on the corner of my heel, but I found I could do the treadmill ok with good socks. I have been doing 5 miles a day now in 80 minutes, split in two sessions.
