I Lift Heavy Stuff While Rockin Out to (HARF HARF) John Mayer

After watching that video you’re probably thinking one of two things:

1. That’s an awesome Captain America t-shirt that Tony is wearing.

2. What in the holy hell is he doing listening to John Mayer while he trains?

First off, you don’t have to tell me how awesome my t-shirt is. Captain America speaks for himself. He reeks of awesomeness.

Matter of fact, I like to think that my life resembles that of Captain America. Except for the whole, “unable to become intoxicated by alcohol” part. Captain America (AKA: Steve Rogers) could not be deterred by the evil of alcohol. Myself on the other hand, have one sip and I’m making out with the next door neighbor’s toaster oven.

Don’t even get me started with what happened the last time I had a wine cooler. Me+wine cooler+the dance floor+the robot+the wife to the CEO of my girlfriend’s company= I’m permanently banned from the yearly Christmas party.

As far as John Mayer is concerned, lets just say that from time-to-time I like to listen to music that will make me want to punch someone’s face to the back of their skull while simultaneously making my ears bleed.

I find that it helps me direct my “rage” to accomplish the task at hand. In this case it was flipping a 500 lb mat four times, walking 60 yds with 140 lbs in each hand, pulling 180 lbs with a rope (harder than it looks off of rubber matting), and then finishing off with overhead keg walks for 30+ yards.

Who knew the words “one pair of candy lips and your bubblegum tongue” could piss me off so much?

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
