"awesome post man! I'm on the same journey, but different stats and goals. It's great to see the same kind of motivation and dedication to details when it comes to manly workouts. I agree with Shane on the Deadlifts and back exercises;…"
"I've become a fan of EDM and rap when working out, the drops always help me hit my rep goals. I used to be with ya on the hard rock, but i mixed it up. Here's a few tracks from my playlist:
Hardwell- Spaceman (Carnage remix)
A$AP Rocky -…"
Nice reply, I hope OP finds this useful cause I sure did.
my two cents: for a space that's tasteful and long-lasting, you're most likely going to need to drop some extra cash. However tempting it may be to make a quick stop to Walmart…"
"I added a reply to this without reading your update on progress. Your story literally described mine almost to a t.

"I found some Cole Haan (maybe it was Coach) black moccasins at the outlet store for about $75 bucks or so. Granted, I dont wear them every day with a suit (I have straightforward lace up black Bostonian oxfords and some tassel loafers) but…"
