Friday night, chilling time.. or not.
I've been sitting, thinking about stuff. We are living a life which we should consider ourselves lucky. All the whiffs and whims of the human race have been answered, and our survival has taken a backseat (at least in the places where most of us who are in this forum are). With this have come laze, disrespect for rules, disregard for the person next to us. People expect things to be done for them. Blood, sweat, tears and, most of all, patience, hold no importance in our world any longer. People just love to take the easy way out.
That's when we, the people who beat and get beat by iron, come out into play. We are out on a quest to perfect ourselves. Each session at the gym, is not only about busting ass physically. It's about teaching ourselves a way of life, about teaching ourselves discipline, and patience. We go about our lives with the same intensity, and the same rigors that the iron plates have taught us. We are not like them. We are people who have gone back to the values of our forefathers, and the mere process of going back to our roots and watering them makes us stronger.

Let us all say thank you to what's been given to us. And let us all use it and lead by example.

Just winding down.

Chill time? ha, I've gotta go do work now, with class at 3. Then I've gotta wait for dinner to open at 4:30, then it's Pump time a half hour later, and then Iron Time. Finally, MY turn to hit some glory muscles - chest and bis.

Friday night is squat night. Just watching the clock counting down to insanity.

We only have one chance in life...that's one chance to get it right. There is no reset button if we screw up somewhere along the way. We live with our consequences that we create and the choices that we make.

I choose to train others 2 to 3 hours a day five days a week. I choose to work myself out 5 days a week. I have followed various lifting routines since 1978. Yeah, I'm old school and proud of it.

Today is Friday...leg day. I'll hump and pump for an hour. I'll feel like losing my cookies. I'll work my abs until I can see properly. (I have no workout partners because I'm tired of them quitting after a few weeks and making excuses after a few days.) Then, and only then, will I step out for the afternoon/evening time.

Keep the priorities straight or lose all the benefits that you have earned. Pay your dues every day and you will see the results that you so desperately want. Responsible Dedication. Effecient Time. Personal Dependability. Remember, nothing will ever be given to you.

I get angrier as the day goes on. Nobody understands it except the guy from work I train with. It just happens .... and the other people around me making plans for the week-end and talkin shit about what they are gonna do tonight like drink and get all screwed up just make me wanna push harder. Friday aint chill night, its a fuckin battle ground waiting to happen in my world.

Shoulders in the AM and calves in the PM with some abb work....then get my 3 year old some time with the local HO train club...then some quality time with my beautiful girlfriend...."which ends up being some cardio time"...

I look at my training time as sacred....its my time...I like to chill...but iron first...the pump the pain...the gains first....then my body and mind is ready for fun.

People come back to work or school on Monday morning talking about how they got thrashed on Friday. I nod and smile, and my mind goes back to my Friday night when my legs got thrashed for two hours. Right now its eleven am and I am looking for an excuse to be pissed off for the rest of the day. I will hold any grudge and use it as my excuse to "get thrashed" tonight. So when your friends call and ask whats going on tonight, we have to explain that we are getting thrashed, and they are not invited.

well, it's about 2PM and I just got done with class for the weekend, hell yes.

Yeah, friday is usually tri/bi night, but threw a few leg lifts in too. Then I made myself sick(too much chicken too late in the day I think). After getting about 4 lifts in I left and came home to shower and eat some fish and potatos.
Instead Im heading back in tomorrow at 8am on my day off, because my parents are coming to visit at 10ish so gotta get in early.
Saturday is usually leg day so I take friday off from going out.

And yes, people love to make fun of me, but they wont ever understand.

It's friday night and I should be out with the boys..getting drunk, bieng stupid, eating nachos, acting the fool. It's friday night and instead of wasting time and sleep, I'm at home eating my chicken breast and broccoli, followed by some Optimimum Nutrition casein powder and a good night's rest for my cardio tomorrow morning and then a brutal as fuck shoulder day. Last shoulder day I passed out and hit my head...but nothing can stop me.

I'm no Jay Cutler and I'm certainly not Legion material, but I love lifting. I love the taste of Nitro G and the feel of Animal Pak, Flex, Pump, and Cuts as I take enough pills to get full. I love the gloves, the straps, the elbow brace and what I really love is the support of all my brothers (and sisters) on this forum.

Honestly, if it wasn't for your support full of intense threads filled with passion for this sport and for each other...I'd be out tonight hurting myself and ruining my gains. Instead, I'm on here, growing strong and losing fat, and becoming...becoming larger than life. Thank you, everyone.

Friday night is the worst. I work legs early in the morning before any soul even thinks about getting up, except maybe to take a piss. I always stay home on fridays. I catch an extra meal and then its off to bed. Most people dont understand this dedication, yet they look up to me, and want to be me.

What the hell is a Friday night? After work its time to hit the gym, afterwards I stay up only as late as needed to get in a good solid meal, then its off to bed. I get up at 7:30 on saturdays for work, which is a short day but then I do legs saturday afternoon. If I don't sleep good, my work and my workout both suffer, so I've sacrificed that day. Others critisize. After legs, I get my daughter and spend the rest of the evening and my rest day on sunday with her. Then monday its back to work, gym, wake up, work, gym, wake up, work, gym, 2 days rest a week. Theres no time for partying, or going out. This is life. This is what I call hardcore. Eat, sleep, train, work.

I used to party a lot in high school and college. I always had friends. The cellphone was always ringing. Everyone always wanted to be with me....

It's Friday night. I'm sitting at home alone. The friends I have left are out getting drunk. I don't like to be around them because I will get the, "Your such a drag" speech because I don't touch alcohol. The other friends are fod gluttons and are most likely stuffing their faces with pizza and other garbage. My girl and I got into a huge fight today so that option is out. Shit has been going real south with that situation over the past few months.

I can't hit the gym because I have gone twice today. I know there is no visit limit but I'm not going to risk getting hurt from overtraining. I got a real nice soreness going on in my shoulders from todays workout. Gonna let them rest and grow.

The cellphone doesn't ring that much anymore. When I first started this life I would check my phone after the gym and it would be loaded with messages and missed calls. Now after all this time I check my phone after the gym and it's rare that there is a missed call.



I don't at all regret this life I've chosen. I can't imagine any other way to live. I don't want to sound like I'm whining or desperate. I will sit here in my solitude eating my veggies and chicken knowing the reason I do this all and smiling because of it.

I have the animal poster "4:27..Why am I here"...... I hang it up on the wall. I stare at it a lot. I know that the man sitting there on the bench in the dark alone is really me. Thoughts of people asking me why I do what I do, thoughts of not having anyone understand or care for me. But there I still sit.

So I raise this shaker cup HALF FULL of protein and I salute any of my brothers or sisters out there tonight sitting alone just like me.

You in texas i'm guessing? Where at? I'm in dallas.


And I know where you're comin' from Shark. I'm still in highschool, and I'll put off plans etc so I can lift. I don't go out on fridays until I get the shit done. And yeah, I used to come back to voicemails and text messages...now I'm lucky if my parents call. Everyones looking forward to a big spring break to get sloshed. I can't wait for spring break, for the sole reason of answering everyones question..."Why?"

Im replying to this thread that what Im doing tonight. Waiting to eat my next meal. When you start this journey you find out who is still gonna be around, the people that respect what u do, not the fuckin clowns who stop calling you cuz you give a fuck about ur body. If and when I do go out and someone gives me shit about drinking my bottle of water, I say, "will it make ur night to see me drink a beer or take a shot? will it make u more drunk? no, so step off. I raise my shaker.

I think we all have our doubts at times. Uncertainties,doubt and the unknown, unpaved path before us. Thats all we have. Keeps us sharp, keeps us focused. I do NOT have any regrets on the path I have chosen for myself.

However, one does find himself wondering what life would be like without the crown of thorns that is bodybuilding.

Yo bro I live in Fort Collins, Colorado, known by SPORTS ILLUSTRATED as a "DRINKING TOWN WITH A COLLEGE PROBLEM." We're all in the same boat here, and I'm right there with you when you say you don't regret it at all. I live this life because I love it, I breathe it, I sleep it, and maybe most importantly I EAT IT THE FUCK UP (literally and metaphorically). Here's to those eatin' clean, goin' to the gym, or doin' whatever you gotta do to get by. Cheers.

Throw any quote you want at me bro. I'm gonna lie and bullshit people and say 'all I think about is bodybuilding all the fucking time'. No because thatd be bullshit. Do I get the job done? Yeah I get the job done, and I do a fairly decent job at it.

But not a day goes by where don't think about puttin a bullet where my brain is.

But I don't simply outta of the curiosity of how far can I take bodybuilding?

So mabye your right...mabye I am spineless bro.

With this lifestyle, you find out who your TRUE friends are. The ones that stick by you, respect your diligence, and support you for the path that you've taken. Those people are more than friends, they're family. In friendship, quality is worth more than quantity.

I know your situation brother. The few close friends that I do have will be around forever. Those that did not respect me or my lifestyle fell by the wayside.

Easy brother.... He wasn't saying you were spineless. I believe he was answering your post as to "what life would be like without the crown of thorns that is bodybuilding" quoted by you. He simply meant that life without bodybuilding would be like life without a spine.

I'm sure it wasn't a personal attack towards you.

This being the first friday of spring quarter and every one wanting to go out, ment only one thing to me, the gym would be empty and boy was i right. I walked in to see another dedicated animal and gave him the normal head nod. Then I proceeded to kill shoulders and tri's for the next hour. Walking home at 10 seeing everyone out drinking beer eating freakin McDonalds haha, i love it when people think as long as they lift they will get bigger. This was a great friday for me, best one in a while for sure

an empty gym is sweet, but a gym full of unmotivated, regular guys is better. Thats why im still at Ballys vs a more hardcore gym, i like that people watch when i bench. But im hoping you hit a party or a club atleast once in a while, being in public, meeting new people, is a good motivater.

Haha I know what you're talking about. I still lift in my high school weight room (mainly because I still am a high school student, but nonetheless) and I usually attract a little bit of a crowd whenever I deadlift. I love working out Friday nights cuz like you guys have said, nobody's there and it's perfect, just you and the weights. Just thinking about its getting me pumped up.

Home again on a Friday. Got home about midnight. My friend and I had a CRAZY arm day today.

We went out around 7pm after getting ready. Drove around looking for something to do. Avoided the bars like normal. Went to see if any good movies were playing, nothing. Went to a few stores to get some things. This state turns into a ghost town on cold nights like this. Everyone is at the bars. At around 930 we both got seriously hungry. Drove around for about two hours looking for something to eat. Nothing but garbage. We finally wound up hitting wal mart and grabbing a huge bag of salad and some pre made grilled chicken breast. Went into the parking lot and ripped it all up and started eating. A car pulled up next to us filled with girls. We knew a few and started talking. They noticed what we were eating and started teasing us about being meat heads and only caring about our bodies. Then asked if we wanted to hit up a party with them. We thought about it and then thought about what they said about how we live. Did I go to the party with them?

Would I be posting online if I had?

I love fridays.....

I'm just like you guys. Sitting at home on a friday night, (protein shake in one hand, mouse in the other) ready to grab a bite to eat then hit the sack. Today was Tri's and Bi's. Legs are tomorrow. Just counting down the hours. I'm not going to lie though if a girl called up right now I would go take care of business.


*Raises protein shake*. . . To the brotherhood.

Dug a trench (grave sized) for my grandpa's gas line last week. 5 feet deep, 15 feet long, "2 asses wide". Doing the job a backhoe and a steam shovel was meant to be doin'. The "DOMS" were unbelievable and so was the pump, better than many of my upper body workouts. Nothing like some good blue collar dues to shock your system...

Don't you know it. I was a non-union Blacktop guy for 5 years and did handwork the the union guys used machines for. Nothing against union guys but we plain didn't have the option because that family owned company did not have the capital for all the CAT equipment. That experience changed me for life and no time in the gym will ever be too taxing after that life. So hats off to you for replying, all the service people, the blue collar workers and the rest of you on this life altering board!

Damn brothers...you got to me.

I was thinking of just taking the night off and lazing around. Now I read this and started grinning at some of the fun/crazy shit on here. So, after work it is off to the gym for back day starting with everyones favorite, deadlifts.

It seems like me and my training partner are the only ones that do deads at that gym (well, some do rack deads or some other odd variation of deads). We seem to be the only ones stupid/brave enough to attack them hard and heavy (well, heavy for me anyway).

I will be thinking of the rest of you when the butterflys hit my gut as the fear enters me looking at that big nasty bar loaded up on the ground...laughing at me. It always laughs until I pick it up...over and over again.

Friday night, chilling time.. or not.
I've been sitting, thinking about stuff. We are living a life which we should consider ourselves lucky. All the whiffs and whims of the human race have been answered, and our survival has taken a backseat (at least in the places where most of us who are in this forum are). With this have come laze, disrespect for rules, disregard for the person next to us. People expect things to be done for them. Blood, sweat, tears and, most of all, patience, hold no importance in our world any longer. People just love to take the easy way out.
That's when we, the people who beat and get beat by iron, come out into play. We are out on a quest to perfect ourselves. Each session at the gym, is not only about busting ass physically. It's about teaching ourselves a way of life, about teaching ourselves discipline, and patience. We go about our lives with the same intensity, and the same rigors that the iron plates have taught us. We are not like them. We are people who have gone back to the values of our forefathers, and the mere process of going back to our roots and watering them makes us stronger.

Let us all say thank you to what's been given to us. And let us all use it and lead by example.

Just winding down.

Hmmmm, let's give you a rundown of every Friday all day for Toni...

wake up at 630am, get myself and the little man ready for school. He eats breakfast..I do stuff around the house. Take J to school by 840am. Come home and I eat my breakfast (my favorite meal of the day too, so I take my time, sit and enjoy it peacefully..usually here at the computer with all of you...my keyboard is a mess!)

Hit the gym for a while.
Go get J. We come home and eat a small meal..he watches TV to chill and I do whatever I have to do.

We make dinner (or I take him out to eat fri or sat night), watch movies and play some boardgames for a couple hours, then he gets ready for bed.
I stay up here with you guys or I get a glass of wine and watch my shows.
Before you know it, Toni is sleepy...grabs a quick bite or a casein shake before bed.

Nighty night Toni! My life seriously in a nutshell!

You know, I see a lot of young guys here who choose to stay at home on a Friday/Saturday night, and thats cool, I respect that decision. I just hope that you guys arent letting your youth pass you by too quickly.

It is easy to go hang out with friends and not get hammered, or for that matter, even stay out late. What I would suggest is that you break out of your shell a little and have a good time. You can have the best of both worlds guys, its really not that difficult. I am not advocating going out and living a "party" lifestyle. But you can go hang out with your friends who do without taking part in the things which will hurt you. Most of my friends respect the fact that I can go out and chill with them at a bar or a house party, whatever, and not drink and have a great time...and I'm married!! LOL!!

Please dont take this as me saying you guys are making bad decisions by staying home on a Friday night. I am not saying that at all. I just hope the 18-22/23year olds arent missing out on some of the greatest times of their lives.

Again...JUST SO WE ARE CLEAR HERE...I am not saying that there is anything wrong with staying home on the weekends, LOL!! (I know someone is going to take it the wrong way...geez)

I am not saying I never go out or that I don't like to. I'll will go out and drink once every few months. The only time people I know go out is to get drunk or eat shitty food, and I am trying to avoid that.

I have friends that significantly vary in how they choose to spend their "free time"..I have gf's that their idea of going out is all day shopping sprees, other gf's of mine would rather go out to dinner, a movie, have a couple drinks and chat all night long. Then I have the other gf or two that goes to the extreme and wants to dance all night long, drink, act stupid, flirt with guys half their age...one in particular is 35yrs old, married with 2 kids!

Now...I love all my friends as different as they all are from one another and I spend equal amount of time with each of them. I dont go out every night or every wkd (obviously...Im here now! LOL)...but I do go out and enjoy myself and I may not choose to get shitfaced or I may not totally enjoy walking around the mall for 6 hrs while my friends try every outfit under the sun on and dont buy anything on top of that.

What I do choose to do is balance my life with theirs because they are my friends. When I dieted..I went to the movies with everyone..sat there and ate boiled chicken breast and aspragus while everyone pigged out on movie yummies.

True friends will make sacrifices for one another...tit for tat. Once again, its balance, its accomodation and appreciation for one another. If your friends mean that much to you...spend time with them. Friends are hard to come by these days anymore. If your friends want to go and get drunk every wkd and you rather not, then just go out every other wkd, have a beer...hang out and relax...then go home. At least then, you made the effort and your friends wont accuse you of becoming a hermit crab that trains all day...in your own little shell!

See thats what its about, living it up'. Now I'm not saying all you other boys need to get out and live, its just whatever "floats your boat" to make you happy with shit. Probably 99% of you already have "shot the shit".

I look at it like this....I love the bb lifestyle and im thinking on how i can get bigger 24/7 and always tryin to eat every 2 hours but i dont plan on competing. I take it very serious and over the yrs ive gone from 150 lbs - 230lbs I lift sun-thur so on these days i get my meals every 2 hours. I take the weights n my diet very seriously but since i dont ever plan on competing it makes it just a hobby for me. Therefore I do enjoy my weekends and go out and drink. Ill just drink liquor wit diet coke instead of beer and things like that. Like they said earlier u can get the best of both worlds. Later

friday night. i noticed the boards here are quieter than usual, maybe im wrong. im siting all alone in the kitchen at 1030 tearin apart this steak and rice i have in front of me. yeah i have no life, but i aint really trying to change it either. i just got out of the marines, i should be partying right? no. im a 22yr old loner, always have been always will be. this animal lifestyle is what keeps me going. i havnt been in the game long, but i aint ever gona be as big as ant,ox, or g diesel. i know im not going to be pro. but for some reason i still keep on going. its like a disease. when im in the gym im a totally different person. i fucking love it.

what about this animal lifestyle keeps you guys and gals going?

that fact that it is you vs. yourself, no outside influence can tell u wat to do, its ur body, u do what u please, if u want to cheat, then cheat, because in this game ur only cheating urself.. u dont have some player next to you that is going to take a play off when ur giving 110%, in this game if you give 110% every single second your performing than you get 110% out, instead of a sacked QB even tho you did YOUR job..

but the thing that keeps me going the most... its a 24 hour, 7 day a week, 365 day out of the year diet/training/mentality that you must have to keep on going... u take 1 day off? some1 will be in there becoming better than u..

think about it? When was the last time you did something for urself??

Military = Country
Job = Money to live/pay for something
Most of the youngins on here have chores = Parents

Bodybuilding, Lifting, and becoming the best you can??.... YOU DO THAT FOR URSELF and yourself only.. If your in this game for girls... Your on the wrong freakin site.

I spent my friday night working my bis and tris. Now im spending it drinking water, eating food, and taking in protein to replenish the damage. It was a good work out. Nobody was there tho. I had to lock up the gym when I left. Didn't see that many cars on the drive home either. I guess everybody else has dates and parties and such. I had BB curls, DB curls, dips, skullcrushers, etc. But what can I say...I would still go out with a girl if I had the chance. But until then....my arms could use another inch.

My routine for Friday nights (if I get off work early enough):

Drop my roommates off at the bars.

Workout. I love how empty the gym is on the weekends, and I'm a night owl, so I usually go around midnight anyway.

Pick my roommates up.

My friends always try to get me to go out with them, and sometimes I do, but I've found that being the designated driver is an excellent way to balance my social life with lifting.

I spend friday nights with freinds, but not partying. Something bad always happens at parties, and theres alot of dicks and assholes to watch out for there to.

Especially in college, its mostly fraternitys/sorities(which I hate infinently more than parties) anyways. My freinds drink occasionally, but I never do. I have alot more fun in those situations then going to a party type atmosphere and bein on edge.

Whoever said having a social life has to include goin to parties should be shot in the face. If that IS in fact what a "socail life" is, then it is completely and utterly unecessary.

I gotta admit last night was a challange for me. All of you who have given up the party life for bodybuilding may have gone through this, more than once. We had everything to celebrate for, and we are leaving soon. So I go out with some buddies to see a movie, The Kingdom. We come back and i see people chillin, drinking as usual, playin their druken games. I get invited to join, but i decline. Then like 30 minutes pass and everybody and there mom is out there having a good time. It was very tempting to say " maybe this one time won't hurt" but i stood my ground and ventured off alone to work on some music and eat. I am glad I made that decision or I would have been kickin myself in the A$# today cuz I gotta work legs. But it's real challenging, especially in the military. DAMN...

I gotta admit again...being back home, is tough. Welcome home parties, time off....what do you do? Every one wants to go out and party and go clubbin, but you gotta eat and get to bed on time to grow. Sometimes you feel like a hermit. It's tough mentally, physically, emotionally and socially. Hmmm what to do, what to do. That is the question or at least one of them. Gotta find a balance...or im gonna go crazy.

don't be a stick in the mud either. Unless you're in the midst of a diet, just drive yourself there. Having 1 or 2 drinks and leaving early won't kill you, and now you've gotten to relax a bit, enjoy other's company, but get home early enough to rest up for your session.

Go party bro. Don't bang it until 5 AM but go have a good time. Enjoy your life. Just because you go out don't mean you have to drink just go out and enjoy the company of friends. Bring your meals with ya. Sleep in a little the next day if time allows.

10-11-07, 11:46 am

Being social doesnt mean drinking, going to a party or clubbin, you can hang out and be social without all that. And just because you forego those things dones mean you arent "living life".Hang out with your freinds when their doing something besides partying. If thats all they do, you should really find some new freinds.

I know how you are feeling. I quit the bottle a long time ago,buit my freinds didnt, but Im still out on the weekends aslong as I dont have to work the following mourning. Im just the designated driver anymore, which is fine by me. We go out, have some laughs, I watch them make fools of themselves, then I make sure they get home alright. I catch shit constantly, but atleast we are making memories and they arent running the risk of killling themselves or anyone else.

It's good to remember there are many ways to show passion, discipline, focus, and acheivement. I have a friend who only has two years left of med school and can pretty much say his above accomplishments can rival ANY bodybuilders. Or for instance a business man who clims the ladder of corporate success....just as comendable in my books. There are a ton of ways to be "hardcore" and ya, bodybuilding is just one of many.

We'll all carry our rage, disappointment, frustrations and problems into the gym but when we emerge we're reborn. Every time we walk away from the punishment we're reminded what it's like to be alive. Stepping outside with frost and ice on the trees we feel like giants, and as our body begins the slow process of rebuilding itself after our session of self destruction we find peace - we find peace in our commitment, and making good on the promises to ourselves.

When the last set of the day is done and the body is bulging with blood we step outside of the mundane and the mediocre, if only for a fleeting moment. The next day brings more battles to wage and banners to hold high over the bodies of our enemies.

If I didn't have to work tomorrow, I'd be doing strongman/woman event day. It's painful enough packing a 400 lb yoke on your back for 300 feet total without doing it with a hangover.

So its 10pm.. friday night. what am I doing? Im taking my pre workout supplements to go smash on my back for a good hour and a half. start off with widegrip pullups til i reach 50 then 50 closegrip pullups. some heavy bent over rows then to heavy 1 arm rows. finish it off with some widegrip pulldowns and some heavy ass shrugs then do some bi's ( I deadlift every other week ) . I'm pumped. so i roll up to the empty gym parking lot around 1030 (as always). my after lifting protein shake/chalk/belt/bcaa's/gatorade/banana all in my gym bag ready to go. I'm ready to go to war... Until I walk up and find out. They changed the hours from closing at 12 to 10pm on fridays.. I am angry, astonished, furious. All I can think, is what the hell are people going to do on friday night if the gym closes at 10

Murdered shoulders tonight....felt wonderful.....my son was in the "kids club" having fun playing while dad here pounded the iron. Something I have noticed this year as compared to last year..and that is the Fit 19 gyms in Fremont , San Ramon and Pleasanton are not running full to the rim like last year after the first month starts...all the people getting back into the game...seems like not as many....which for business is bad...but for us freaks...its jut fine.....

Fridays
A round of seated good mornings and bi's/abs the rest

Everyone leaves for the house parties/NYCScene
The hard thing is being the only guy who really wants to kick back
But of course not in solitude at this point

I'm pretty much alone when semester rolls in
Put up with these nutjob classes
Met a few of the devoted in the gym (They shuffle in and out) (And I HAVE to RUSH this!?!)
Then anticipate most of the night wasted away by freakin schoolwork
Friday nights -> Nightmare nowadays (Since Fall '06), I gots work to put up with and everyone else goes scott free

I hate Engineering for that
I'd rather be lifting a whole lot more, taking in more/better food and being around people to be with them (Not for schoolwork)

Only one group I can always drop into -You guys and the Forvm


Now I have to get my shit together, I'm moving in tomorra, another semester is rising

Friday night is the pre club pump at the gym aroung 9pm then off to the clubs..... I do arms and calves earlier in the day.


So you workout earlier in the day, then go back for the sole purpose of getting a"pump" before going to clubs?

That kind of caught my eye too, but I wasn't going to say anything. So you really have an extra session so you can look pretty at the clubs friday night? That's pretty fucking funny if you ask me.

Bobbymart do your thing bro - I'm not one of the guys who thinks bodybuilders need to be isolated from everyone and everything. I completely agree that we should have a social life and enjoy ourselves, especially on weekends after a long work-week. I sure as hell am in no position to tell people what to do. What you do on Friday night is up to you - whatever makes you feel good about yourself is what you should do.

You can have a great social life without ever stepping foot inside club(I never have, and dont plan on going to one, for several reasons).

Your post is very close minded in that you assume since peaple find it "Funny" that an individual would go to the gym for the sole purpose of "pumping up" to go to a club, they are saying you cannot have a social life.

Since I am not above any man, far be it from me to give any suggestion as to what an individual should do with their time. That being said, individuals who choose to spend their time with pigs should not be surprised to find that they have gotten a little mud on them.

This world is fucking tough, and it will take a big fat shit on you, even if all your ducks are in a fucking row. On that note I find the best course of action is to expect the best and prepare for the worst. I have very little tolerance for ignorant, and stupid behavior, and find it best to stay out of places where those individuals gather. Since time is our most precious Comodity, I choose not to waste it with what I deem to be unfruitful actions. Just because the world chooses to view Friday-Sunday as a time of rest, should we do the same? Except for the names that we have given them, does one day differ from another? They all last 24 hours. G-Diesel once wrote that when everyone turns right, you turn left. I think he was onto something.

True dat, I agree.... I do goto the club every now and then, MAYBE once a month if I'm NOT in season to compete... but tons of other shit to do without choking on everyone elses smoke all night. I'm a people watcher though, I like to laugh at people acting like retards drunk of their asses lol. But what's going with goin' to the club jacked to take all the honeys from the scrubs. Wait... nothing's wrong with that lol

I love Friday nights because its leg night. I love going in and hammering out leg extensions, smith machine squats, leg press and lying leg curls. I love the pain, sweat, pump and not being able to walk up stairs afterward. I love fact that instead of going out, drinking and doing drugs, i'm in the gym punishing my body and then staying home and eating like there's no tomorrow. I love pushing myself beyond the limits and accomplishing something. I wanna separate myself from all the meaningless bullshit that is fun for a night, but leaves you empty the next day. I wanna be a bodybuilder. I wanna be an animal.

no free weight squats. i think they are over all better. but i love friday nights too. cardio night. jog for a half hour to a school, go to the outside bball court and do suicides and just kill myself. wake up next morning ready to do it again. fuck i love everyday that i do something that pushes my mind and body. greatest feeling in the world when you beat your old record and continue to improve. and everyday you see something different on your body whether it be a new incision(sp) or another vein,(yes on a cut) just geting ready for ffootball and get into competition shape just to prove i can do it.

Yeah free weight squats are better, but i have a nagging hamstring injury and when i free weight squat i usually hurt it. I can use a good amount of weight with the smith and i've had good results. But, i would def. recommend free weights above anything.

Friday night, chilling time.. or not.
I've been sitting, thinking about stuff. We are living a life which we should consider ourselves lucky. All the whiffs and whims of the human race have been answered, and our survival has taken a backseat (at least in the places where most of us who are in this forum are). With this have come laze, disrespect for rules, disregard for the person next to us. People expect things to be done for them. Blood, sweat, tears and, most of all, patience, hold no importance in our world any longer. People just love to take the easy way out.
That's when we, the people who beat and get beat by iron, come out into play. We are out on a quest to perfect ourselves. Each session at the gym, is not only about busting ass physically. It's about teaching ourselves a way of life, about teaching ourselves discipline, and patience. We go about our lives with the same intensity, and the same rigors that the iron plates have taught us. We are not like them. We are people who have gone back to the values of our forefathers, and the mere process of going back to our roots and watering them makes us stronger.

Let us all say thank you to what's been given to us. And let us all use it and lead by example.

Just winding down.
Nawaaz



Well said!

Keeps us true to ourself, discipline, and slave to the iron.

To me, it seems like less work to put on sweats and go train than to put on jeans and nice button-down and go out.

I used to party a lot in high school and college. I always had friends. The cellphone was always ringing. Everyone always wanted to be with me....

It's Friday night. I'm sitting at home alone. The friends I have left are out getting drunk. I don't like to be around them because I will get the, "Your such a drag" speech because I don't touch alcohol. The other friends are fod gluttons and are most likely stuffing their faces with pizza and other garbage. My girl and I got into a huge fight today so that option is out. Shit has been going real south with that situation over the past few months.

I can't hit the gym because I have gone twice today. I know there is no visit limit but I'm not going to risk getting hurt from overtraining. I got a real nice soreness going on in my shoulders from todays workout. Gonna let them rest and grow.

The cellphone doesn't ring that much anymore. When I first started this life I would check my phone after the gym and it would be loaded with messages and missed calls. Now after all this time I check my phone after the gym and it's rare that there is a missed call.



I don't at all regret this life I've chosen. I can't imagine any other way to live. I don't want to sound like I'm whining or desperate. I will sit here in my solitude eating my veggies and chicken knowing the reason I do this all and smiling because of it.

I have the animal poster "4:27..Why am I here"...... I hang it up on the wall. I stare at it a lot. I know that the man sitting there on the bench in the dark alone is really me. Thoughts of people asking me why I do what I do, thoughts of not having anyone understand or care for me. But there I still sit.

So I raise this shaker cup HALF FULL of protein and I salute any of my brothers or sisters out there tonight sitting alone just like me.

fuck bro i can completely relate to that Whole post. good shit. i kno exactly what u mean.

Friday nights are a blur now.. well every night is..

Same thing, each night..

Tonight at the gym one of the MMA guys asks me "What are you getting into this weekend?"
I replied.. "My Bed"..

thats all I do.. around here (which I am sure its like this for most) no one seems to be able to comprehend that this is my choice
not to go out and get hammered, along with other personal reasons.. i love how one of the latest magazines on the market has a little
article on what to take to cure a hangover.. i mean.. seriously?.. i guess its for the yo-yo lifters.. some day they will realize the changes
they need to make.. but it will be too late.

I respect the dedication, but doesnt self control come into play? You dont have to stay home and be pissed everyone else is getting drunk. I completely understand when people say they trained , had a long day and are beat, but it seems like some people feel slighted that they are home and others out of partying. I went out with some friends last night, had a chicken salad, two beers, came home around 11 and went to bed. I had fun, socialized and made it home to sleep 7 hours before going to work.

I'm not trying to flame anyone, I just think that if being home on friday makes you miserable find ways around it. I hardly think two beers hurt me, but I know for some it all or nothing.

agreed, you can always find time to hang with friends. fuckin pack food and your set or hell, eat right before and bring a gainer shake with you in a coke bottle. eat when you come back.

For me, Friday nights used to be bruuuutal. It was either sitting alone at home eating after the gym wishing I had someone to talk to, or going out with people who are nothing like me and watching them get drunk while I drank waters and ate as clean as possible.

Recently though, I found an amazing girl who thinks what I do is awesome. On Friday nights, she'll come to the gym with me and do some cardio while I lift, and then we'll go home and I'll cook up a steak and watch a movie with her. This is a girl who's VEGETARIAN and lets me keep chicken and steak and fish in her fridge!!! Yep, I think I found myself a keeper...
