    Nothing beats military obstacle courses. There's one where I did my recruit training that is over water, so is a bit like a toned down ninja warrior course for big heavy guys, instead of small climber types. I understand Pendleton has the longest running obstacle race too as they let the public in once a year for an event. Just fantastic athletic challenges if they're put together well.

    I appreciate you getting on here and speaking your mind. But at the same time I must say, this is just me being me. I see too many guys out there living like they are the coolest thing on earth, and acting all entitled. I saw grown men coming through the line at Kroger month after month, using food stamp cards to buy monster and doritos, and talking about going home to play call of duty. Those guys are men, but only in the genetic sense. They have become the status quo, and it sickens me. I want to see myself ,and others, become more than that. To become more than what the modern man is. That is why I used that quote. "

Whenever I see a trainer I want professional advice to help me achieve my goals not motivational peoptalk.
    I don't believe I'm better than others just because I work out, eat heatlhy, drink a lot of water and don't smoke weed.

    That is so cool. Thank you for serving! I recently tried to join the national guard, but there were some issues that kept me out. I know the guard is nothing close to what you did, but still. As far as what kept me out goes; I have congenital heart disease and have had two major surgeries. One of which involved an incision from under my arm all the way to the middle of my back, this so far has greatly hindered me from doing pullups. As for the guard, my heart doctor, who has been my doctor literally my entire life, said that he cannot recommend me joining the guard due to my heart condition. I was pretty depressed for a day or two, but I have accepted it and am for the first time in my life, feeling my physical limitations. I would love to serve, but that just isn't an option. I will continue training though, and I hope that I can slowly overcome some of my barriers.

    Here's a side-note about weed: Not only does it help with pain, but it apparently has anti-cancer properties. A major reason for various legal problems against it. People think it's all Puritanical bullshit from ages past (and some of it definitely seems to be from that), but there's other stuff that started around the same time medicine was getting really crooked.

    The anti-cancerous properties it seems to have are:
    It's anti-proliferative (doesn't grow bigger), anti-angiogenic (doesn't grow its own blood vessels), anti-metastatic (doesn't spread to other areas), and it's apoptotic (speeds up the "self-destruct clock" of the cells).

    Hello again! I have recently had to put my training on hold because of an injury sustained at work. I have noticed my emotional lows becoming deeper because of this and my energy and motivation levels have plummeted. This really sucks! I am no bodyweight master (yet.) And I am still working on the earliest steps of convict conditioning, even so, I know that exercise has improved my attitude and work ethic immensely. I cannot wait to get back into it. Thankfully I am going to physical therapy today and I hope I can get the green light to begin training again.
    The reason this happened is that I have a lower amount of bloodflow to my right arm due to some complications during one of my heart surgeries. My right arm simply fatigues and gets injured much easier when exposed to lots of stress. CC has greatly improve the function of this arm and really didn't contribute to the injury. (Working twelve hours a day, lifting large metal parts at a steel factory is what did it!) I do believe that CC will help me overcome this speed bump, I am just going to have to take a step back and begin retraining my arms. Just when I was making noticeable progress too! So keep in your prayers and thoughts and I will keep training and becoming more than a man,
