Apart from his talent he's recognized for his gut-running and work ethic.

"It was about 40 degrees and 95 per cent humidity and West Coast were going through the motions of a training session - all except for one player," Quinn recalled. "They were doing runs at 50 per cent and there was this one guy doing it at 100. They did the session for about 30 or 40 minutes and the whole time this one guy was doing everything at 100 miles an hour.
"I have always watched him since that time. That is his work ethic all the time. I say to our players, he is the benchmark."

Off Topic / Olympic Coverage (Australia)
« on: August 01, 2012, 12:26:20 pm »
Thanks for fuking up the Olympics with your awful coverage Channel 9! Fkn useless kunts can't even run it properly. In 2 hours you see 5 minutes of basketball, and snippets of a dozen other sports followed by a commentary cast of fukwits and commercial breaks. I'm not even gonna bother watching the Olympics anymore until track comes on otherwise I'm gonna break my TV.
Thousands of other Aussies agree with me as you can obviously see by Channel 9 facebook page.

Basically the author proposes that modern men are weak and physically inferior to our ancestors of the past. It's a long read but it's good. Some of the author's claims are questionable (e.g apparently there were australian aboriginals who had the potential to be faster than usain bolt) but overall it seems to make sense.

This is the part about australian aboriginals.

.



So i think the author is saying the average male today is weaker than the past because of a mix of genetics and laziness. Than he proposes that part of the reason why the general genetic pool throughout the world is weakening is because of how the modern day world is run.

.

Thoughts about the article?

Hey i'm a white 21 year old and i've made it a goal of mine to be able to dunk a full sized basketball on a 10' ring off the dribble (don't have the coordination to lob). - THIS GOAL IS NOW COMPLETE. GOAL COMPLETED 26/6/2012!

AGE: 21

GOALS:
Standing Vert- 30
Running vert- 35+
10% bf
10.5 100m FAT
4.4 40 yard
Dunk basketball- COMPLETED

This goal (dream) is pretty lofty but I'd like to play 7s rugby for Australia. At the very least I want to relocate to QLD or NSW and play either QLD cup or NSW cup rugby, which is like semi professional standard.


CURRENT ABILITY:
Standing Vert- 29
Running Vert- 34
14% bf

INJURY HISTORY:
Double fractured left ankle when i was 11. Numerous ankle sprains but they don't really have much affect. Broke my left arm when i was 14. Had achilles tendonitis when i was 14 but since than have never had any problems with my achilles. Suffered from shin splints when i was 18 because my rugby coach told me to bulk up so i put on 11kg in a few months. Naturally my body doesn't like carrying weight. If i set my mind to bulking i can do it but I feel soo much better when i'm light. No longer have any problems with shin splints because my body eventually got used to carrying the weight.

TRAINING HISTORY & ACHIEVEMENTS:
Used to play basketball. Did little athletics as well when i was a kid. Started playing rugby at 18. Train 2x a week and play 1x a week. Represented rugby at state level. Fastest kid in primary school and high school at like every school i went to haha.

CURRENT ACTIVITY LEVEL AND/OR TRAINING PROGRAM:
Never lifted weights before just exercised by playing sport. I'm making progress through low volume training though so until that stalls I'm just going to keep doing what i'm doing.

BRIEF OVERVIEW OF CURRENT DIET:
Junk food like 7 days a week lol. I don't drink soda though (unless it's with a fast food meal).
Typical day=
breakfast- coco pops
lunch- protein shake
dinner- fast food
drink about 2 litres of water a day.
*I've addressed diet though and have started replacing fast food with chicken and kangaroo meat. Also including more vegetables in my diet.

IMPORTANT ACTIVITIES:
Nothing just uni/work but it's easy to train around.
