I have to admit, I miss opening up youtube and seeing that adarq ul'd a new video. Watching adarq getting psyched after setting a pr and going crazy in his vids motivated me. Plus I usually ended up dl'ing whatever song he had in the video and would listen to that while training.


I've still been training, I just haven't been as into it. I'm thinking that since it's starting to get nice outside again here I'll be motivated again like I was.



I was never on terminal vertical but I miss when tvs was really active.

Yeah a handful of people stopped posting, like Steven Miller.

But the truth is - it's not that complicated to train. Just do the basic lifts and be consistent.

That's why you've made so many gains in the last 5 years

You noticed that too? Thanks! :highfive:

If it makes you feel any better Raptor, Carl Lewis didn't really improve much after high school. When you are already awesome there isn't much room for improvement. :-)

This^^^

I like how people say I failed, but forget that I was (am) a nerd to begin with, with 10 inch verts. So... I think I did pretty good considering my genetic make-up.

it's funny, lots of nerds on here, 'wishing they were godlike athletic', elite level freaks.. so we work(ed) hard as f**k for it..... but is their a flipside? im sure a small number of cases.. but i think natural nerds wanting to become athlete by far outnumbers natural jocks wanting to be nerdy.. lmfao

Well nerds are smarter (I don't talk about the geeks that just ready and study and are still stupid despite all that) and they are aware of what they need to do to obtain stuff. "Athletes" aren't as aware and live by just what they got genetically and think they don't need to work hard, they just coast on what they have. The true winners are the genetic freaks with nerdy attitudes.

thats why a lot of athetes end up financially broke. They are most of the cases very stupid.

REDIRECTING TOPIC:

This forum COULD die afterall but the cause would be lack of moderation.
Too many Verkoshanskys lately , going on ranting and proposing wild theories , insisting on them like crazy etc. I am speaking for myself but i believe it annoys other people too , it is very frustrating to see the forum flooded by pulled-out-from-the-ass theories, presented as if they were scientific facts. Makes me want less to come in here.
We always had people like them , we will have at the future too, the only way to get them off the arrogance train is Lance or Adarqui forcing them to do so. Them and also a few knowledgable people that really know their stuff. And knowing your stuff is not "Yo , i read the VJBs and saw 50 DeFranco vids and now i know all the explosiv verts sectets".
So i am really glad to see Lance, Steven Miller and Todday back at the 'active' mode , the forum needs you guys!
Hoping to have Andrew back soon too.

Cheers!

  Agreed man, its getting more and more annoying to see those threads and posts. Dont think that shit is going un noticed, its like waking up and hearing fingernails running down a chalkBoard to see those moronic posts and threads daily. 

   
Relax.

Who are you referring to? No point in not naming names if you think they are killing the forum.
I don't lift for girls, I lift for guys on the internet



[7:31pm] adarq: ripp, being honest, it's hard for u to beat jcsbck, he's on fire lately
[7:31pm] adarq: he's just
[7:31pm] adarq: wrecking people
[7:31pm] adarq: daily




Say NO to Maroko

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.
