Gym Fails

February 16, 2014

My schedule this week has been kind of funky, but in an effort to come back from 2 months of mosty sedentary living I’ve gone to the gym  a couple of time later than I would normally go. Boy do you see some things at 24hr fitness that you can’t help but shake your head at. Not all 24hr gyms suck, the one in City of Industry has more buff Asian guys than i’ve ever seen in my life with the possible exception of UCI’s gym. Ladies if you wanna marry a big manly korean guy that’s place you need to be after work.Lots of mirin to be done. Monterey Park gym on the other hand has a lot of ughhh interesting exercises going on. No judgment, just Lols. Highlights included

 

  • 50ish asian guy dancing in front of the dumbell rack. Not salsa or waltz, more of a sexy time dance. Maybe he was trying to impress the younger guy doing medicine ball chicken head situps.
  • Younger effiminate black guy dancing and doing the chicken head situps. He got a big pink bouncy ball out and did a stretching routine that included dry humping the ball and then proceeded to alternate pull-ups with crunches on the ball. Not normal crunches he used the bounce of the ball and his hands to pull himself up and did the fastest sit-ups i’ve ever seen in my life. A lot of really fast bouncy sit-ups.
  • I’m at the gym, but I don’t sweat asian ladies. too many to count. High five for being at the gym, shame for your family because you somehow manage to spend one hour exercising without sweating or breathing hard or even dancing in the mirror.
  • Deadlift 90lbs guy. Yes I understand that we all start someplace, but if you deadlift 90lbs you don’t need to occupy the squat rack. You can grap a barbell 100lb barbell and set up in a quiet corner.
  • Also the female trainer who’s on some type of AAS. I’ve never run into a woman at the gym I thought was on Steroids. Looking back maybe a couple of them were on light doses, but this young woman seriously is starting to look like Brawley from DBZ so I feel pretty confident that something more serious than protein powder and Creatine is going on .

Photo from last December at the Porsche Museum (bonkers btw) because there’s a chance I may be heading back to Germany for 3 weeks next month. On one hand it’s immediately cooler than Nevada and i’ll also be responsible for doing some business development ty, but on the other hand it’s 3 weeks and I’ll also be responsible for coordinating meetings with potential new clients. New clients part is especially exciting, even though it would eventually mean more travel.  My future mother in law is a big fan of Germany. She got sent for a couple months of engineering training and thinks very highly of the German people. I asked Novia Liu if she liked the food since my boss is very critical of German food and I think it’s pretty okay most of the time.

“What are you taking about? Of course she eats Chinese food”

Yup

So with the gym, I never do cardio, but this week out in Ferntucky, Nevada I’ve been doing some mobility work and running wind sprints in the parking lot. I haven’t tried to really run fast since the last time I played basketball. So in two years no real running and the whole use it or lose it thing seems to apply. I never loved running for the sake of running, but I did always like the feeling that I could cover a lot of ground when I needed to. Mulling over a return to outdoor soccer. I think it would help my jiu jitsu and it’d be something cool I could do with my kids.

Starting to understand how you could be a diehard Ford loyalist. Falcons, Galaxies, Fairlanes, and thunderbirds. Plus, I already own an F-100.

I miss vocal trance. I guess EDM people don’t want their music to be called trance. Whatever guys. If it’s 120bpm and a woman is singing some emo ass lyrics it’s vocal trance.
