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

Uhh, what does it matter who invented the smith machine? Yeah...smart business move, which just happened lock the brakes up on fitness.

I'd follow Rip to hell and back before I decided to jump on a smith machine just because the original concept was thought of by someone who is "tougher" than him.

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

I admire Jack a lot, but I'm not so fond of his website. It's more about Jack and his fitness products than fitness (not to criticize- the guy's done enough for fitness to fill a couple of websites).

Still, your comment carries with it the implication that because Rip isn't "ripped" (yes, that was intentional), his points aren't valid and that's hardly the case.

Oh, and by the way, Rippetoe is the Kwizatch Haderach

"Uhh, what does it matter who invented the smith machine?"

It doesn't matter. It's just interesting. And ironic. Sheesh. What is it with you guys? Look, somebody made up one of those fake Chuck Norris "facts" about Rip. The point of those is to exagerate how tough a person is. This particular fake fact claimed that Rip invented the Smith machine. It's interesting and ironic that in real life, a really really tough person DID invent the smith machine.

"I'd follow Rip to hell and back before I decided to jump on a smith machine just because the original concept was thought of by someone who is "tougher" than him."

Good for you. I would never use one either. I said as much by noting the irony in that fact.

"Still, your comment carries with it the implication that because Rip isn't "ripped" (yes, that was intentional), his points aren't valid and that's hardly the case. "

Of course it doesn't. My comment said ABSOULTELY nothing about his points about anything. He is far more fit than I am too. But all I said was that he, like the rest of us, falls below Jack on the toughness ladder.

Rip's first response in this thread on ************ (not particularly wfs) cracked me up big-time.

How many 5 year old kids can Rippetoe beat in a fight? All of them.
