Re: The Training Thread - all aspects of fitness and health

Speaking of wiping off equipment, I was on the treadmill the other day ( :blush: ), some girl was on one a couple down the line from me. She finished up, went to get the spray and paper towels, came back and carefully and considerately wiped down the wrong treadmill.

Ahh, the ChadBot or something? Seen stuff on Instagram for it but never investigated.

I’m on the fence about getting a barbell medicine hypertrophy program. Lost all my strength during quarantine so I figure now is a good time to be a bit of a bro but in a vague powerlifting way.

The whole current climate lends itself to celebrating forgotten aspects of black culture so was always likely to be a bigger deal than other years.

That Cork stabbing is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. Something about how casually and easily the knife goes in.

The England one Floppy mentioned is rough too, split second lunge with the knife and the guy is dead before he hits the ground.

Went back to the gym this week and had my first leg day yesterday, feeling a bit sore today.
