@ProTrump0578 👆👍💪 Hell Yeah!

The after-effects are BEYOND worth it.

Woke up swollen but not sore.

~20 hours afterwards: Less swollen, a little sore.

Tomorrow's Target:
500 Dumbbell Curls (20#)
500 Sit-Ups (minimum, old-school style)
250 Squats with 2x-20# dumbbells.

@ProTrump0578 Observation:

FOR ME, this method is more effective at building size than lifting heavy. Son & employees noticed after last month's challenge.

Lifting Heavy = Small incremental gains (mini-plateaus).

Added bonus: STAMINA

Something strange about this...

THREAD, CONT'D:
@ProTrump0578 ... unconventional method.

Consider Navy Seal training.

Guys are stronger than sh!t, hard as rock, WITH STAMINA.

This reminds me of something I forgot about, from 15+ years ago:

One year I sponsored Paintball games w/ Customers & Employees.

THREAD, CONT'D:
@ProTrump0578 Paintball is tough, but since we're all oil-field workers (self-proclaimed bad-ass men) - "No Problem. No Bitching!".

Capture the Flag, 20 Men, TRENCH WARFARE

A BRUTAL blood-bath

Guys shooting each other @ point blank range

4-6 hours DUCK-WALKING in trenches

THREAD, CONT'D:
@ProTrump0578 NOBODY walked right for the next 3 days.

Toughest Working MoFo's in America, now waddling like old geezers.

You hurting?
NOPE
Why you walking funny?
LOL You too?
YUP

Next week, most us joked pants were tighter around our quads.

THREAD, CONT'D:
@ProTrump0578 Toughest men I know work in the oil field.

Strong AND tough.

WHY?

STAMINA.

Lifting 36" pipe wrenches (19#) on a regular basis & swinging 20# sledge hammers over a 12 hour shift is like a Steel Forge at the Foundry.

@ProTrump0578 Point I'm trying to make:

What works best to gain both strength AND size?

Conventional= "Lift Heavy, Fewer Reps"

Fine but I don't need Pro BB "bulges on top of my bulges".

I need USEFUL strength.

Wanna be able to scratch my own chin.

THREAD, CONT'D:

@ProTrump0578 I do have an ulterior motive to this STAMINA thing (see photo).

If I can't hang on for a minimum 4 hours (sometimes >12), it's going to hurt.

If I can get (back) there sooner, without waiting in line for the squat cage or the incline bench at the gym, FANTASTIC.

CONT'D
@ProTrump0578 Drew, I'm curious to hear your thoughts on resulting strength & stamina over the next few days.

Also curious if you want to try out this endurance challenge game we just did yesterday?

Say, like once or twice a week?
