Re: Classic Rip (collection of quotes, many hilarious, many NOT w/f/s)

I was reading on there last night, he was responding to a guy who asked like a billion questions all jumbled together in a few huge paragraphs, his simple response: "Ok, that had like 30 questions in it, try to be more succinct", the guy re-asks the question kinda, and shortens it a little. Rip responds "Ok, you're down to 15, keep going"...

Older men / older women

From the June 2007 CF Journal:

Rip gets to "the rather inescapable conclusion that the older men get, the more like older women we become, hormonally speaking."

I don't know whether to laugh or cry, being over 40 and all hormonal and everything...

"....make sure they match your purse." That's HIGH-larious. Its going up on our whiteboard today! Thanks Daniel.

Not a quote, but a funny Rip moment. On the bench press video on the main page a couple of days ago, Rip made the funniest freakin' face and hand motion when he called the woman over for the demo.

"The hang clean is unweighted and is of little use to watch, except that it shows a problem known as a Donkey Kick. As the jump occurs, the heels come up in the back and then stomp back down into place. This is a terrible waste of time and energy, and contributes nothing to making the bar go up. Stop doing this immediately or I will have you killed."

Not funny, but a bold statement:

"Milk is quite literally better than steroids for a novice lifter to grow on, and no supplement produces the same effect."

From the milk thread.

Coach Rippetoe:
No, we never consciously squeeze our asscheeks in the weight room. It's not a valuable biomechanical cue, and it might get misinterpreted by the guys on the next platform.

OMG i just about died laughing, that is a great one!!

Another exchange on Strength Mills:

Thanks.

Rip's musical tastes

"I like musicianship, and it's quite lacking in most modern popular music. You're always safe with old Chicago, the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, or Tower of Power."

Re: Classic Rip (collection of quotes, many hilarious, many NOT w/f/s)

I heard this third hand, so it may not be true.

I heard that someone told Rip that the only way to have a strong healthy heart was to do LSD. Upon hearing this, Rips heart lept out of his chest, body slamed the man, jumped back into Rip, who then proceeded to do a heavy set of deads.
