"While not denigrating lifting, and being a desk-bound worker bee with limited spare time, I'd opine that you wouldn't be ill-advised to start with a modest course of body weight exercises and walking/jogging. If you can't do 20 push…"

"Id say you are right and to add to it he only has to do two things look good and train , and do movies . He would have a lot of down time and people falling over themselves to help him ."

"I think your right on some levels , when I started my training my goal was to look like Hugh Jackmans wolverine , to my friends I was there but I didnt see what they did . I guess we are our worst critics ."

"Wasn't trying to, though I know it comes too easily. I can only go what he said, and it did make sense, as an external goal could take my inner drive to a new level. I've heard similar with training partners. There are times I go in…"

"You're being to rough on yourself again (are you really gonna make me call you on this every time?). In my opinion in the gym you should be your greatest competition/motivation. External sources won't make you committed as much as inner…"

"Shane, that's awesome your training and career are one, and I thank you for that. Also thanks for the explanation. The man here who got me training like I do now, long gone, said it was best to train for something, an event, anything. Real…"

"I agree. I typically have and "end state" for the physique I want in mind........but it is constantly changing. It is the process that keeps me going more than my imagined "end state""

Carl Monster replied to Zane's discussion Solitary, Minimalist, Poor workout
"I know it's contrary to advice I've heard, but if I had a "look" as my goal I would have abandoned my training long ago. For me it's been the process itself, which is unusual for me because I'm typically a…"

"I would be willing to bet that it took Tom Hardy more than 2 years to develop his physique as well."

"Sand bags. I dont mean the £100 super duper endorsed by mr millionaire sand bags, I mean the bags of play sand you can buy in hardware shops. a 25KG bag of sand costs £3 here, sling a few bags in a large duffel bag and you got your kit"

"Fascinating use of acronyms. I don't have a "sport". It creates an existential problem for my training, but I certainly am not going to stop because some guy made up a bunch of percentages."

"It has been awhile since I looked at Kubik's stuff. You mentioned Dan John earlier and I love his stuff. Entertaining writer that is all about picking up weight and carrying weight around. Right now if I could name my favorite training authors…"

"Good points. Brooks Kubik's "Dinosaur" type of training would be ideal for minimal equipment and was almost all based on old time strongman stuff."

Wolf & Iron replied to Milo Morris's discussion NPR is running a series on “Men in America”
"I have listened to a few of these and have the same thoughts every time. They do a good job of talking about what males are currently experiencing in America but not what a man should be or what manliness actually is. I wrote an article addressing…"

"I had a guy tell me that exact thing in the gym.  He looked like a man in his late-thirties who had seen more wear and tear than most, figured he was ex-military. When I asked why he was concerned about what I thought was a middle aged…"

"470? was that ass to ankle? If it was I'm damn impressed. See too many guys with that weight go only a fraction of the way down, to watch their poor knees have to deal with the reversal of all the inertia. At 50, I focus on form form form.…"
