Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

Holy hell is there a lot of hate on those forums! Geez...and spot on about the dudes with cartoon avatars. Lots of CF haters too.

Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

I like some of their articles but their forum like DD is poorly formatted and just a headache to read.

Yeah, some of them really have something against CF, but it doesn't bother me that much.

I love their articles. Check the site almost daily for something new.

Maybe we shouldn't make assumptions about others so that they don't do the same about us...

Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

WWWWOOOOWWWW. Just went on that site... Ok some of those dudes a pretty ridiculous. Those guys are the definition of tools/meat heads. I bet there closets are full of ed hardy and affliction rhimestone shirts lol. My co-worker is just like them and a cf hater and I tell him...."Sure you can bench 75lb more than me, but you cant outrun me, Ive got way more endurance then you and I do olympic weightlifts...you know those ones you never try?" And then I always say to him when he gives me ****, the same thing the one guy posted on that thread Heard at the office today "You wanna take off shirts and compare who looks more fit and has the better body?" He respecitively declines. The funny thing is he agrees Im more fit than him, but blames it on a high school ankle injury he got 20 years so he cant do any cardio. But I always tell him Ide race him on a bike if running is too hard. Once again he respectively declines.

Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

Im going to start with saying to each his own.

I dont really want to go read the article because it will probably make me angry as well. Cause I know to say that a gymnast is weak is preposterous. But just like the long argument with two of my co-workers today on one saying that Iron Maiden "sucks" and the other saying he is wrong and an idiot. The problem is there is definition for the opinion of Iron Maiden sucks, or that gymnasts are weak. And without a specific thing that they are "weak" at then you just start up a firestorm.

That is the problem when you put people together who have been taught all their lives that their opinions are worthwhile and that they are special no matter who they are, they take it as "everything I think is right, and infallible, therefore you are completely wrong when you disagree with part of my belief." I'll admit that I fall into the trap on occasion because I am not totally capable of keeping my emotions out of a conversation, which is also something that cannot be conveyed over the internet and that sets off even more fires because people cannot hear the connotations or see the body language to go along with the words.

Then again I am also just some random guy on the internet, expressing his own opinion.

Just ignore all the other crap.

They have a lot of REALLY good articles...which more than make up for it.

Re: anyone here been to t-nation lately?

It seems like few on that forum put thought into this scenario - what if a tall guy used gymnastic training methods to get stronger?
