Who knows about title. I just wanted to share I slayed it in the gym tonight. Back workout to White Zombie and Pantera. I was a bit stronger than I thought I would be but I am far away from the 500+ rack pulls from the shin, and 120 lb DB Rows for 12 reps I used to crush. I am too nervous to try pull ups. I am scared I won't even be able to do 1 and I used to hang weight for reps. I am feeling good though. I have my creatine and protein coming in the mail. It really is all about consistency and discipline though. I can't get it all back in a day. It's fun though. It gives me something to do. Picks me up. I don't have to stress over Gemini taking forever to validate my account and my Trezor wallet not working. But, here I go off to coincap to check everything again....

Anyways....

I braved a massive snowstorm to make it to the gym this morning. The streets hadn't even been cleared yet, it wasn't possible to use the sidewalk. I had to walk in the middle of the street with the occasional car passing very close to me. One car tried to avoid me (I think) but exaggerated and ended up crashing in a big pile of snow and he got stuck. Fun stuff.

I pictured the scenario and it made me laugh pretty hard. It's also pretty badass.

I remember I have a blog on here a looong time ago about asking for music to brave blizzards and deadlift a bunch of weight:

It was actually squat a bunch of weight but here it is

Man, searching for that I have posted a lot of shit on here.

Loco, you're into metal aren't you? What might be some artists/songs to check out specifically for lifting heavy ass weight? Maybe, also for rowing in beast mode for 20-30 min.?

And, I will just open it up to the floor. It doesn't have to be Scandi. Let's collaborate on a sick collection.

Last suggestion I got (not specifically metal) was:

Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Led Zeppelin, Bad Brains, and Cro Mags which obv is great but I am looking to go deeeeper. HEAVIER. Whoooooooooo!

200 km of cross country so far this season. been trying to crack 500 for 5 years but there hasn't really been enough snow/been too busy - I think this year I might manage, cuz I've never gotten this much done by mid january before.

That is awesome.

Where I live they don't even have snowploughs. It snowed 6 inches and it shut the whole city down for 3 days. No cross country skiing for me .

I'm not into metal, I'm into extreme metal. The stuff you listed doesn't do anything for me in the gym.

It's a nasty business but dopamine is dopamine. An ass is an object. Breasts are an object. I am using women and myself to get my rocks off. I realize the hyper moaning is important too. The other night I had the sound turned down and it wasn't nearly as stimulating.

You get nothing out of "More Human than Human" by White Zombie or "Walk" by Pantera?

Damn. I need to scale up my drugs. Give me some hits maaan.

Fuck creatine fucks up your kidneys I was waking up at night to go to bathroom on that and it made no difference to me in other ways. The reason might be because I had enough creatine already from eating steak everyday and very rare. I take the position now that I won't consume anything out of a lab its all just marketing and its not natural. As for protein powder seems like a waste of time I'd rather just eat real food. Even those herb supplements I was taking I used to think its 'just herbs' fuck no herbs are not just herbs they're powerful as fuck and messed with my thalamus gland sleep was fucked up.

Nothing whatsoever. I would get the same pump with Miley Cyrus, tbh. I like some of the more melodic songs by Pantera like Cemetary Gates, Hollow and Floods, I grew up listening to that, but it's just not going to cut it as gym music for me. Like, I was already listening to Death when I in elementary school thanks to my brother:






I don't do any stimulants, I rely entirely on music, so I sometimes need the apex of heavy/dissonant insanity. The stuff I like you would in all likelihood find unlistenable, frankly. See for yourself:

I just had a "squat" workout to Amon Amarth. I am just doing beginner workouts. I did 84 walking lunges over 3 sets, some crunches, and then a handful of burpees before I was like fuck this. It was like I didn't want the gym to see me struggling through burpees so I just quit. Great attitude. I still need to check my ego constantly.

Actually, that was what I was looking for. I fear there may be no going back.

I have also changed my perspective on training seeing heavy weightlifting as a very stupid and vain thing to do. By far the safer and healthier way to train is to do calisthenics and stuff like hiking and outdoor activities.
Most people are not built to handle heavy weights and end up with most commonly knee and lower back issues if you do something stupid like starting strength where you just ramp up the weights all the time you need to have the body type for it aka the big boned bulky type naturally even then your form needs to be perfect. Overall it is just ego training for numbers but it leads to nothing in the end. The only thing I would do is trap bar deadlifts and farmers walks.
In the real world outside of bar fights it is never 1 on 1 and being bulky is just a hindrance since you need to run the fuck away most of the time if your training for larping reasons of fighting then it does not help unless you have the perfect situation. If training for the perfect body the bodybuilding perhaps but its gay as fuck and you get unnatural proportions.
Instead easiest way to train in the world pullups, dips, pushups (entire upper body sorted very safely and no proportion issues) then core with side planks/planks etc. (focus on core its the most important imo sit ups are not safe) Legs you can do hiking, sprinting, plyometrics, lunges, reverse lunges etc. I would add in farmers walks with suitcases
Also this





look into stuart mcgill if you want to train that way

this guys channel is good

Hahaha, I picked some of the truly most extreme "end of the road" examples. It took me a while to build up to that. It's ok if you don't get much out of it. There's entry-level extreme music you could get into.

This is what I was listening to yesterday, I think it's fairly accessible:



Anyway, when you feel adventurous, here are some of my favorite gym albums released in 2017 (in order of preference):

I used to be friends with these two metalhead chicks and their favorite band was Amon Amarth. Ever since then I've always seen the band as metal for girls (they were in high school). It makes no sense at all but it's just the kind of irrational connection a brain makes sometimes. "Can't unsee" type of thing. I thought it would be fun to mention it. They also liked the folk/"viking" metal subgenre a lot. I always found that genre cliché and stale. Wintersun and Moonsorrow are alright though.

So, I listen to metal for high school girls... hahahaha. I like it. It has like a triumphant vibe to it. The music not the fact that I lift weights to teeny bopper metal.

Twilight Of The Thunder God
Free Will Sacrifice
Guardians of Asgaard
Where Is Your God?
Varyags Of Miklagaard
Tattered Banners And Bloody Flags
No Fear For The Setting Sun
The Hero
Live For The Kill
Embrace The Endless Ocean

I mean come on.

The genre is a bit cliche. I can't deal with a lot of it. Something like Korpiklaani I thought was kind of fun but I never listened to too much of it at a time.

lol, I saw them live at one point and I can tell you there were a lot of guys there, but still, since my intro to them was from teeny bopper metalheads I can't help it.

I was listening to some scandinavian metal inspired bands at the time that you might like. These are two songs from my two favorite albums from my early brootal days:

Listened to Ruins of Beverast while giving my dog a 2 mile walk. I had a sick pace going. Good stuff. The one song with the tribal chanting brought me back to when I was listening to Native American rain dance and war dance music. I was absolutely nuts but it was some goood training.

It also reminded me of a time in the psych ward (and other times) when I thought my manic powers could be used to charge other people up. Not literally charge them up but my mania could bring people energy. I was talking to a Native a lot at the time who said in Native culture this is very true. They don't treat people's "diseases" they see them as gifts and work with them. I was on my way to get an honorary Native name and everything but then he moved and I moved. What a brilliant culture though.

Anyways, I'll listen to one of the other ones while I clean my desk.

Going back, that is an ego thing too wanting a name. I was happy enough just spending time with these guys and learning.

The point here is that I like very tribal essences. Drumming, chanting, dancing. If that is mixed with metal I might hit new power levels.
