Scrapes and bruises are manly and attract fertile women who will want to do rude things with you.

Where women are concerned admitting you're afraid of getting scraped and bruised up occasionally from deadlifting is like admitting you own a cat called Mr. Tiddles and just adore show tunes.

I wear a pair of ski socks that have extra padding on the shin. They're not as bulky as sweats and thicker than tape. They're marked DeFeet, not sure where they came from, they were a gift.

And then you order a tofu burger and lose all the ground you gained. Might as well own the cat.

Just wear pants. No one wants your DNA on the bar.
