I was recently thinking back to a time when I worked in personal security (bodygaurd) whatever you want to call it. Sometimes I would get to work with music acts that I liked and I thought that was a very appealing perk of that particular gig. Anyway...I was a younger man and an aspiring athlete and a very large mammal when I had the pleasure of working with a music producer who our detail escorted to a Suicidal Tendencies show. Long story short...I got to speak to Mike Muir, the lead singer of ST and it proved to be a profound moment for me. I was at a point in my life where I was actually a functioning maniac...and much of ST's music spoke to me in a very real way...and Mike was definately of the same ilk...he was approachable, polite, and really listened to me...and to my amazement, he thanked me for what I did and who I was. It was kindness that I really appreciated at that point in my life, and it was such a simple thing. I will never forget that conversation and the kindness he paid to me...one person to another. So brothers...go easy on the world out there and take time to thank the real people every chance you get...you never know...you may never get the chance to thank them if you dont do it now.

So thanks Mike...stay cyco for life.

I think that is why alot of us are Animal. Are here, using these great supplements, from this great family of athletes. I feel the things the U and Animal do for us, is like thanking us, for doing what we do.

That's a great post Machine. Giving thanks is important especially when the other person doesn't really realize what a gift they've just given of themselves. I think it's even harder to be the other guy though. Life is tough and we all are on the go. Stopping to listen and talk with someone, someone you probably don't even know, and giving something of yourself is the real deal. We could all take a step back and a deep breath and be more generous with ourselves.

I agree, I don't much care to chat in the gym. I like to get my shit done and hope no one bothers me. But lately, I have been sharing my knowledge with quite a few people. After Im done, but at least now I do try to give back. Hell, I will sit and chat with anyone to either learn, or give, whenever I can.

My shoulders are really starting to hurt. Only 2 weeks left on this routine, but with my trip coming up, Next week will be my last week on this routine. I will take the week after as a deload week and most likely hit up some mild cardio that week. I will be needing to drop some body fat soon as my PT Weigh ins are in 10 weeks. SO I may order me up some cuts and start my next routine as normal.

Killer run/crosstraining/run/swim/pullups/run tomorrow. Ughhhhh!

Thats awesome to have opportunities like that brother. Good to see that not all people with that fame take it for granted. They are still grounded and know where they came from.
