Zyzzpiration

I recently (in the past hour) learned more about Zyzz. I heard about him, like many others, when he died of a heart attack, caused perhaps by cocaine, steroids, or a congenital heart condition that was exacerbated by sitting in the sauna for too long. I wanted to share my thoughts on the Zyzz legacy.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdBoybKnzZw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdBoybKnzZw</a>

I watch his videos and am surprised that I'm not disgusted by them at all. I've moved away from partying, girls, drinking (never did much of that in college anyway due to being a hippie with long hair and being fairly asocial, but I did throw a coupe big parties in high school that I became known for) but I recognize that "Zyzz" inside of me, as Zyzz said. He said it's in all of us.

It's a youthful adventurous fun-loving spirit that can really do whatever it wants with the energy. Zyzz partied without his shirt on, danced on the subway without his shirt on, fucked bitches and became a "sick cunt" believing that if you're shredded nothing else really matters.

I'm 22 now but I remember feeling the same when I was 18-19 or so, that becoming shredded and aesthetic was how I would make it. But since I was committed to training for vert, I wanted to be skinny and bouncy instead.

Even though his steroid and drug use is typical of more and more teens with body image issues these days, the message I've gotten from watching these videos is that there's an adventurous side in all of us that wants to dance, laugh, and do whatever the fuck we want, but it sometimes goes to sleep with the routine of work, sleep, and study and social pressures. People let it out in the nightlife as an escape, and similarly Zyzz represented a way to break free from societal norms and aka be a rebel, but all the time, not just at night. The RawBrahs on the other hand, represent a way to be "good" while being shredded and aesthetic. I'm not planning on dancing while taking drugs at raves like Zyzz but it's nice to recognize that energy inside of you. I felt like I started to let it die. But I am taking it back, so don't let that Zyzz die inside of you.
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.

Your zyzz was your passion for vert and creating this forum and vids and whatever it espe it is you like to do. That's how I'm interpreting what the "Zyzz" is.
