Friend believes in "hard body training"
I've got a friend who, after seeing some show on TV, believes in something called "hard body training". Now, I had always been under the impression that hard body training was something homosexuals did before going to a club, but apparently it can make your bones stronger than steel as well.
This guy has been convinced that by doing some stupid ass exercises like punching barrels of rocks, you can make human bones into "the densest substance in the world", and become immune to things like punches, kicks, and being hit in the head with a hammer, and learn to punch so hard that you can literally punch someone's head off. As evidence, he pointed to this TV show on discovery or some crap like that, which features a guy punching a hole in a cement wall, and talking crap about bones being denser than osmium. Now he's started believing in **** like being able to train to punch somebody in the chest in time with their pulse to stop their heart. He says that he's started flexing his muscles in place, as the first part of some "hard body" training program, since flexing your muscles all the time will apparently make your bones tougher, or something like that.
The stupid thing is that this guy is a 6'3", 250 lb former boxer who could probably KO most of those "hard body training" guys without much trouble. I have no idea why he started believing this stuff, since he should know better. I actually figure I should just let him go on believing this unless he starts giving money to these fraudsters, since he doesn't seem to want to see reason.
