Hello everyone,

I'm writing this post to share with you all my strength training program and all of the different ways I train.

I love training, and have always loved it and will always love it. So yes, I am obsessed, and to many it may seem like too much, but it's really not.

We men have been created to be physically dominant and to use our bodies. 

The famous quote from Socrates: "No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable."

With that said, here is how I train:

I wake up early in the morning around 4:30AM. This is when I work on my business.

Throughout the day, I perform 100 push-ups, 100 bodyweight squats, and 100 sit-ups. I either do as many as I can in one go, or I split them up throughout the day, it depends on how I feel.

Around noon, I go to the gym which is a minute away from my house.

I do my heavy lifting routine, which you can find on my website. It's the best I've ever done and I said something in another post about how I train depending on how I feel. The program doesn't give you set percentages and numbers to do, because it doesn't treat you like a machine, the program let's you train your body according to how your body feels. Amazing.

And at night time, I go to my MMA gym. This is where I get all my conditioning and endurance work, and I learn how to kick ass (while also getting my ass kicked). 

I love MMA, it makes you feel things you never would've felt before and it really tests your limits.

So that's how I train. If you guys have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.

"We men have been created to be physically dominant..."

Aah, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

You know this is the 21st Century, right? It's not the 19th. And this is not Misogynists Anonymous - you don't get points for admitting that you're a fan of this sort of reactionary BS, and we're not here to help you get better.

Please, tell me more about how you're dominating and becoming a musclebound hulk. I could do with a laugh.

I was referring to our biological nature, which still holds true today.

Our biological nature is that of a malformed woman. That is the reality of our genetic code. We have a deformed chromosome which makes us a man. The idea that we are "dominant" is ridiculously antiquated thinking. We are different thanks to a massive genetic mutation, and it's not something that we should pretend makes us "dominant".

Clearly you are a frustrated old man. 

I was merely sharing how I train with those interested.

You can go live your life being a malformed woman, a genetic mutation, or both. Whatever suits your frustrated self. 

But I have to go train in mixed martial arts now, so I won't waste anymore of my time on your ignorance.

Maybe it's because he quotes Plato or Xenophon, or says he does, neither of whom considered male dominance as being physical dominance over women, but I read that as men striving to be dominant over men.

The 46th Y chromosome is smaller than the 45th or 46th X chromosomes, true.  But I wouldn't call it "deformed" or even a "mutation."  The human race obviously needs that chromosome.  And, historically, it's clear that the understanding of human health was based on a healthy male, not a healthy female.

My problem is with the idea that dominance is something that is attractive. To me it's repulsive. But if others are attracted by the idea of dominance, that's fine by me, as long as I'm free to giggle at the embarrassing immaturity of it.

as long as I'm free to giggle at the embarrassing immaturity of it.

I didn't realize this was a discussion about your penis.

Shane wins.

That's a fairly unique self-loathing.  I am woman-ish, hear me roar, eh?

Well Ian, aren't you a weird little dude. 

 While the OPs' wording was a touch clumsy, he's fundamentally correct. There is nothing misogynistic about it, it just is what it is. Men and women are opposites, built for different roles and imbued with different biological advantages in order to fulfil different roles. It's not about one being any better than the other. It's about two pieces that form one whole. And while exceptions certainly exist owing to the complexities of human psychology, women do not respect in any authentic manner men who fail to take the lead. Nor does life in general. He who dares, wins. He who does not dare, works as a clock punching wage slave for some guy who did. Or the Government. Neither of which are particularly noble results. 

Well, he said "dominate" while discussing physicality. If you're a british effete who lets his small children call him by his first name, you probably automatically equate any expression of male power as inherently power over a woman. 

Maybe he didn't mention women because he hates them.  Same reason he didn't mention midgets.  And Indians.  And trannies.  You can almost feel the hatred dripping from the omissions.

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More
