New Deadlift PR: 1RM @ 475lbs.
New Overhead Press 1RM @ 175lbs.
I’m really pleased with my numbers so far and how good I feel after hitting them.
My Bench 1RM stayed the same @ 265lbs. I really need to work on my form before it will improve.
Given that there is some drama going on over some people being people, I thought I’d offer some real-life accomplishments I’ve been working on for the past month or two. My only thoughts on the drama between people is that if the Manosphere can be killed or declared dead by a few people having blow-out, personal disagreement, then it isn’t worth a damn. A small number of people do not own the Manosphere, so they have no authority to kill it. Otherwise, what kind of pathetic, simpering frame is that?
I’ve been doing a strength training routine called StrongLifts 5×5. It is based on your current strength (established 1-Rep Maximum) and then builds gains into sets of reps over the course of 5-6 weeks. THIS week is the week I establish my new 1RMs for the next session.
My previous 1RMs were:
Back Squat: 285lbs
Bench Press: 265lbs
Overhead Press: 160lbs
Today I hit my NEW 1RM for Back Squat @ 315lbs. I added 30lbs since starting this routine at the end of February. That’s a huge gain, although it is very typical to see huge gains in the beginning. Still, feeling the success and improvement is motivation to push harder.
It feels really good to see and feel the results of this training.
I do owe a lot of credit to a guy I work with who has been giving me some serious coaching, especially establishing the proper form of my lifts. He’s been Power Lifting for a number years and he can put up some serious numbers.
So do you even lift, bro?
“Everyday Sexism” Catcalls men and films the results:
Most of the men are caught off guard, but none are hostile or offended. When propositioned, most are willing. Just goes to confirm the old adage that “Women need a reason, men merely need a place”. It also goes to show you that as long as the target finds the Catcaller attractive, they won’t be offended.
Beauty Kirsten Dunst Expresses Pillar Manosphere Tenant:
Dunst is surprisingly outspoken on the subject of gender: “I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” she says. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…”
Women want a MAN and Men want a WOMAN. A woman is to be placed in a dwelling to create a home and hearth. The man is to provide resources and defend it. In combination, they create something greater than either can on their own. They create something that is the subject of all the greatest romances and tales that have ever been told.
Another note, I definitely had a giant crush on Kirsten after she played MJ in Spiderman, her acting was ok, but her sweetness and vulnerability in the role hooked me.
The first tale is a of a well-weathered shit-storm.
Recently at Roosh’s Return of Kings, Tuthmosis wrote an article entitled “5 Reasons To Date A Girl With An Eating Disorder“. It hit critical mass after women started re-Tweeting it and posting it on Facebook. Needless to say the response amounted to the typical threats of death, dismemberment and violence. Roosh and Tuthmosis were besieged on Twitter etc.
During the entire ordeal, both Roosh and Tuthmosis, maintained their frame and stood behind the article and knocked down all comers. They even went so far as to post some of the Tweeter’s they interacted with and rank them based on looks.
The second tale is one that has not been well-weathered and is still ongoing.
This past weekend, Paul Walker of Fast and Furious fame was killed in a car accident. It is a tragic event because every story coming out about Paul indicates that he was one of the most awesome car guys you could possibly hang out with.
Then Adora Bull had to go and write “Top Five Reasons I’m Glad Paul Walker Is Dead” for the Modern Woman Digest. This article found its way into a car forum or two and the comments went nuclear. Similar to the RoK response, threats of death, violence and rape abounded.
How is, Adora Bull, the author weathering the storm? Not so well.

The Matt Walsh Blog is a great source for purple-pill and Conservative political thinking.
He has some great articles on political happenings but also touches on marriage and relationships quite a bit from a Biblical perspective.
It is mostly Trad-Con thinking, but the comments section is a good place that some Purple and Red-Pill ideas can be shared and discussed with those outside the Red Pill community.
