Whereabouts in the City?
Also, what's wrong with fat people lifting weights?
" The reason elite level MMAists don't fight with aikido is the same reason elite level swimmers don't swim with their lips." - Virus
" I shocked him with my skills on the ice becuase Wing Chun is great for hockey fighting." - 'Sifu' Milt Wallace
"Besides, as you might already know (from Virus, for example) - there's only 1 wing chun and it sucks big time" - Tonuzaba
"Even when I'm promising mayhem and butt-chicanery, I'm generally posting with a smile on my face." - Sochin101
"That said, if he blocked my hip on a drop nage, I would extend my leg into a drop tai Otoshi and slam him so hard his parents would die." - MTripp

Topnotch, which is on Tudor Street near Blackfriars. I strongly recommend checking out the HK class. Unintentionally hilarious. I've since noticed that there's actually a thread about these jokers: Chang's Hapkido Academy, Blackfriars (London, UK) - No BS Martial Arts
As to the tubbers, I suppose its just that one assumes they're there to try and lose some weight and are doing their ab-exercises and weights in the misguided belief that this will target localised lard, when what they should be doing is spending a little more time on a treadmill. Though watching them wobble about doing that always makes me feel a little seasick.
I quite accept that some pasty munchers are not labouring under any such illusion, and are just trying to get stronger, or perhaps training for sumo or something, in which case my criticism would be unjustified.

Apparently, lifting weights actually burns more calories than CV in the long run because of the effect it has on your Metabolism I.E. speeding it up.
Can anyone confirm this or is it bollocks?

Once had a guy in a gym I used to attend who, when he started, was given the usual generic starter program ( some cardio then a couple of sets 12-15 reps on most of weight machines with a few free weight exercises thrown in).
He stayed with the same program for 5 YEARS!!!!!
Just to clarify, the same exercises, same order, same weight, same reps....every......single....time.
Any advances on that one?

I know an 18 year old with no muscle mass who thinks he is the strongest guy ever. He talks about he has been lifting wieghts since he was eight years old. One day he came into work and said he had a great workout. He said he was lifting weights for 15 minutes.
Merry Christmas! shitter's full...

i thought i had a really gross gym story.
my local gym has a breed that i absolutely hate. the 'roided white collar guys.
they are in their 40's, talk about juice all day long, hog every good machine while half the time they are sitting there socializing while i need to get in a few sets of squats or presses.
then they try to hit on the college girls by talking about their money and cars.

I have just spent 2 months working in the Mojave desert (alt about 2,500 ft). Does masturbating at altitude count as endurance training?
