    Yes, and it’s a ‘Murikan tradition to be held on every 4th of July; the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Joey Chestnuts FTW.

    Timely, indeed

    isn't this the reason Olympic athletes have chiseled-abs with almost zero-percent body-fat

    The workout today called for a total of 100 bench press reps of 135lbs with a row/bike for cals, with built in rest. I was thinking no problem. Sheeeeit.

    Got through 60 reps no problem, then triceps started tightening and that bar got heavy. Ended up getting 81/100. Now I've got jelly arms

    The overall world record-holding female weightlifters tend to look something more like this:

    Big difference in being strong and looking strong, a lot of times

    i remember being in high-school and they had this machine that would measure how much percentage of your body weight was fat
    and then to make the weight-class-system "fair" the coaches would try to make every student athlete get down to as little body fat as possible

    makes sense for wrestling and boxing but i guess it's really unnecessary for weight-lifting

    I think most laypersons confuse bodybuilding with strength.

    you don't need "definition" or chiseled abs to be strong
    you don't need bulk to be strong

    you can make your upper body stronger without making the muscles bigger
    bruce lee was stronger in upper body muscles than a lot of the bulky-as-hell body-builders

    You're the one who said "Olympic athletes have chiseled-abs" which led to us having this argument in the first place. Maybe just stop posting?

    i was specifically refering to the way that the high-school sports coaches instructed the student athletes to acquire chiseled abs, which had to do with "making the weight-classes fair" which isn't really applicable to weight-lifting
    so if the weight-lifters have giant-beer-bellies, that's totally fine, i guess

    i'm only 5'10 and i haven't weighed under 200lb since i was shorter

    and because i have a heavier-than-normal-skeleton,
    even when i have the chiseled abs i'm still 205lb

    my problem with this chick getting suspended from Olympics over weed is this

    A)
    weed isn't "performance enhancing", if anything it fucks up your performance, so why not let the athletes use something that gives them a disadvantage

    B)
    weed is legal in several states
    so why not usable in this situation?? let the Olympic athletes use weed
